TheAssociatedPress SACRAMENTO A Northern Cal- ifornia man was sentenced Fri- day to nearly 30 years in federal prison for assaulting a federal ranger and a California highway patrolman during a shootout that left all three men wounded near a remote campsite last summer. Brent Douglas Cole, 61, of Ne- vada County was sentenced to 29 years and seven months in prison, the U.S. attorney's office in Sac- ramento said. He was convicted in February of shooting both offi- cers near a remote campsite nine miles north of Nevada City last summer, near the popular South Yuba River campground. The Bureau of Land Manage- ment ranger was shot in the left shoulder and the CHP officer in the right leg. Cole was shot several times, but federal prosecutors say he surren- dered only after he ran out of am- munition. CRIME Mansentenced in shootout with 2 officers By Julie Zeeb @DN_Zeeb on Twitter RED BLUFF A Red Bluff Spar- tan football tradition started up for the season with the Fri- day breakfast held at Red Bluff Fire Department's Station #2, Whitt Hall. Now in its sixth year, orga- nizers Scott and Debbie Span- gler no longer have a player on the team as their son, Garrett, is now a senior at Menlo Col- lege majoring in international business management and their youngest, Maryn, has just started her freshman year at William Jessup University, but the couple wanted to stay in- volved with the event. It was started as a morale booster and team building event when Garrett was a sophomore in 2010. "We wanted to continue to do it because we enjoy it," Debbie Spangler said. "We en- joy being able to support the boys." Coach Corey Hein used the breakfast as a chance to give his players a pep talk starting off with thanking the parent volunteers for doing the break- fast.

Staff report RED BLUFF Tehama County has its first human cases of West Nile virus for 2015, with three reported in the county, accord- ing to a press release received Friday. There also are 7 positive senti- nel chickens from flocks through- out entire county, according to Andy Cox of Tehama County Mos- quito and Vector Control. Neighboring counties of Butte and Glenn have confirmed human cases for this year, with 36 and 12 respectively. Shasta County has seen West Nile, but reports no human cases according to the California Department of Public Health. Plumas and Lassen coun- ties report no cases of West Nile. Residents are advised to be aware of mosquitos and take mea- sures to reduce their risk of con- tracting the West Nile Virus, which is transmitted via mosquito bites. West Nile Virus is a potentially serious illness that affects the cen- tral nervous system. Mosquitoes become infected with the virus af- ter feeding on birds with the vi- rus. The mosquitoes then bite hu- mans, horses and other animals spreading the disease. Most individuals who are in- fected with West Nile Virus do not experience any symptoms, but 1 out of 5 infections produce fever, rash, headaches and body aches. People older than 50 and those with chronic medical con- ditions are most likely to develop complications from West Nile Vi- rus, so protect these members of your family. The best way to avoid West Nile Virus is to prevent mosquito bites. Use a repellent containing DEET; stay inside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active; make sure that doors and windows have tight fitting screens and drain standing water from flowerpots, buckets and barrels to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds. Change the water in pet dishes daily, and replace the water in birdbaths weekly. Drill holes in tire swings so water can drain out. Keep children's wading pools empty and on their sides when they are not being used.
