According to the Butte County Sheriff's Office, Eugene Hastings Sr. has been arrested on 6 counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14 years of age.
The Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Victims Unit (SVU), Butte County Children’s Services Division, and California Community Care Licensing investigated allegations that Eugene Hastings Sr., a former foster parent, allegedly molested the child.
In June of this year, the Butte County Sheriff's Office received a report that Hastings had touched a former foster child in his care in 2014. At that time, SVU detectives did a thorough investigation, contacting foster children who had been in his care in the past. It is also noted that former foster children had made complaints in the past. FULL STORY
When I moved away last year, it was with great disappointment and sorrow that the paper I had worked so hard to build would fade away.
I was very excited earlier today when I was contacted by an Oroville resident who is interested in bringing the paper back.
Brian Benkle moved to Oroville in 2013 and loves the area. He is a long-time Butte County resident and wants to provide the kind of news and tourism coverage Orovillians and visitors deserve.
Soon, you will see new information appearing on the GCG site. I can't wait to see what Brian brings us. I am glad I will be able to keep up to date with Oroville news and events.
I am grateful to Brian for taking on this fun and exciting task. I am sure he will get just as much enjoyment out of it as I did.
I have noticed readers are still "tuning in" to the GCG. I am sorry the paper is no longer being updated. I have relocated for a job. However, I am still writing and you can still keep up with what I am doing.
I am now writing a blog. So far, the posts have been relatively short. Soon, though, I will be including information about events and businesses in my local area. Since it is a popular destination for many, I am sure you will be interested.
Be sure to pop over to my blog, Coolstuph4u.webs.com, to see what's up- and be sure to share the site with everyone you know. My blog will continue to feature the interesting information you have come to expect from me- and much more.
Thanks to everyone for your continued interest.
