Law enforcement officials on Monday requested information from the public about a shootout in Sonora on Saturday that left one person dead and two injured. 

Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Johnson said the office has requested any witnesses, particularly those with audio or video recordings of the incident, contact the office at 694-2900.

Ski resorts ready for season

Bear Valley Mountain Resort has been in snowmaking mode and plans to have ski lifts running Saturday.

The resort, off upper Highway 4 just east of Calaveras County, has been snowmaking since Thursday in anticipation of the 2014-15 ski season. 

Weather pattern among driest

Last week’s rains gave the Mother Lode a good soaking, but the series of storms were a drop in the bucket relative to what’s needed to get California out of the current drought.

Earlier this month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center released a report stating the past 36 months, November 2011 to October 2014, comprise the driest and warmest 36-month period on record.

Holiday parades set

The cities of Sonora and Angels Camp will follow Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday with evening Christmas parades. 

Sonora will host its 31st annual Historic Downtown Sonora Christmas Parade starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday. A variety of floats, musicians and animals will proceed down Washington Street, starting from the Red Church and spanning south to Restano Way.
