  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

Investigators from several state and county agencies followed a lead contained in an email written by a condemned serial killer to his hometown newspaper Friday, Jan. 27, but the search for the remains of one of his victims failed.

According to a press release from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, investigators from the San Joaquin County and Calaveras County sheriffs’ offices and the Department of Justice (DOJ) searched an area in Calaveras County in an effort to recover the remains of Cyndi Vanderheiden — a 25-year-old woman believed murdered by Loren Herzog and Wesley Shermantine in 1998.

As you drive through Hamilton Branch you may notice an odd looking yellow vehicle parked in front of the Hamilton Branch Community Services District office. This is the district’s new amphibious vehicle, an Argo 6x6 650 HD. It should make servicing the community’s spring during the winter much easier than it has been in the past.
