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)

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)
