Cycle Death Verdict

Three years ago, bicycle rider Amy Suyama died during a benefit ride when a vehicle passed a grape truck into the direction of her and her boyfriend. Yesterday that driver was found guilty of the death which has been contested in court for a second time. Jurors were able to see the video of the interview with the driver who said he believed there was enough room to pass the truck. (photo courtesy KGAN)

SR Marathon

The Santa Rosa Marathon takes place this weekend, and that means thousands of runners and spectators in downtown Santa Rosa. The shorter races tomorrow start at 7am, and Sunday's Marathon begins at 6:30. Some of the runners Sunday will be hoping to qualify for the Boston Marathon, or even the Olympic trials. Some roads around downtown and along the course will be closed or have big delays. (photo courtesy NIH)

Scam Calls

There's a new telephone scam happening. The caller states he is "Captain Darin Dougherty" with the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. He states you need to call him back regarding a legal matter. While Captain Dougherty does work at the Sheriff's Office, he is not making random phone calls about "a legal matter." Never provide your bank account, credit card or personal information to anyone on the phone when you receive these types of calls. (photo courtesy SonomaSheriff)

Fire Risk Weather

The weather we are experiencing right now is called "critical fire" conditions by the National Weather Service. Strong winds, low humidity, and high heat add up to a strong potential for wildfires. Use extra caution with mowers, bbq's, and campfires during these kinds of weather conditions. (photo courtesy Philippine News Feed)

SWAT Training

Today, you may see a lot of police activity in downtown Santa Rosa. It's an all day training by the department's special weapons and tactics team, known as SWAT, and the Hostage negotiations team. They will be conducting a joint training exercise near the former Sears Builiding until around 5pm. Watch for road closures around the area all day today. (photo courtesy Santa Rosa Police)

Salmon Season

California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state's historic drought. It's a sharp reversal for Chinook salmon, or King salmon, which helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities. A marine scientist with California's fish and wildlife agency says commercial catches have so far surpassed official preseason forecasts by roughly 50%. (photo courtesy Medill Reports Chicago)

Chanate Site Demolition

The former Sutter Hospital on Chanate Road will be torn down. Sonoma County Supervisors ordered the demolition of at least some of the derelict buildings and work more closely with the remaining company that wants to buy the 72 acre property. Last week, the two leading bidders on the property backed out of their plans to purchase the site. (photo courtesy County of Sonoma)
