Trump’s ‘trifecta of ineptitude’ on fires

When I got on the conference call with Gov. Gavin Newsom, along with six other California editorial writers Thursday afternoon, I was thinking back to newspaper photographs from the aftermath of the Camp fire. The then-governor-elect was helping tour President Donald Trump through the devastated town of Paradise. As they walked through Paradise lost, the many images shot that day by photojournalists showed a somewhat astounding — and then again, very humanly understandable — amount of touchy-fee...

This Rancho Cucamonga woman and her dog searched the ruins of the Camp Fire for remains

Sharon Gattas spent Thanksgiving this year among the ruins of the largest fire in modern California history, the Camp Fire that leveled the Northern California town of Paradise. “I am not a firefighter, I don’t run towards fire,” the Rancho Cucamonga woman said. “My husband did that; he’s nuts.” What she can do, however, is train dogs to help in times of disaster. “The dogs we choose to do this are the dogs that most people throw away,” Gattas said. “They are terrible pets. They chew up your spr...

I Was Born to Do This

      One of the many characters in the French nativity santon, hand painted over a hundred years ago. Carries two baskets from the market filled with cabbage. Some brought incenses, some brought gold, some came by with their lambs and drums; The French santons, the many characters of the village come to the Provencal nativity, 'it takes a village" comes to mind when I see them set up. I collect the old shabby looking ones, but the characters never change, I love this one who brings cabbages,...

The new abnormal: why fires like Paradise will happen again and again

Of the traumatic consequences of climate change, scientists consider increasingly ferocious wildfires to be one of the most starkly apparentRuth McLarty, an experienced surgeon, was fairly certain she was about to die in a particularly grisly way. Surrounded by a hellish inferno of burning trees and cars, McLarty reasoned the flames would engulf her long before the smoke could choke her to death.Trapped in nearby vehicles, some of McLarty’s colleagues made similarly macabre calculations. Two nur...

Why didn't they evacuate in time?

MAGALIA, Calif. (AP) — Ten years ago, as two wildfires advanced on Paradise, residents jumped into their vehicles to flee and got stuck in gridlock. That led authorities to devise a staggered evacuation plan — one that they used when fire came again last week.But Paradise's carefully laid plans quickly devolved into a panicked exodus on Nov. 8. Some survivors said that by the time they got warnings, the flames were already extremely close, and they barely escaped with their lives. Others sai...

When the Hometown You Always Knew Could Burn Gets Erased from the Map -- Paradise is Lost to the #CampFire

Let's talk about the Camp Fire for a second. My family moved to Paradise in 1991, as I was starting 8th grade. I lived there through high school, until heading to college. The family stayed until all kids had graduated high school - the last in 2004. (This story is adapted from a thread I initially posted on Twitter) This was us at home in '91. While news has referred to Paradise as isolated, we actually were moving from an even smaller town. I'd spent elementary school in Brownsville in Yuba ...
