New energy campaign

kicks off at Stonehouse

Reinette Senum, who is running for Nevada City City Council, plans to launch a sustainable community project called the New Energy for Nevada City Campaign at a kickoff Tuesday at the Stonehouse Restaurant in Nevada City.

“My New Energy for Nevada City campaign will bring new energy to every corner of our town by working to create a sustainable community rooted in a strong, local economy,” Senum said. “I will listen to our residents and protect the integrity of our neighborhoods, historical district and business districts. I will help establish a ‘town center’ where people can visit with friends, shop at our own local farmers market, and enjoy art, music and educational exhibits.”

Senum co-founded PowerUp-NC, a nonprofit working to find energy efficient programs and incentives for Nevada City, with a goal of reducing Nevada City’s energy use. She said she is also dedicated to creating a sustainable community model, implementing an incentive-based recycling program.

n Deputies shoot, kill

gunman at mall

MISSION VIEJO – Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man suspected of robbing a jewelry store at a mall Sunday, authorities said.

Orange County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a robbery in progress at a jewelry store in The Shops at Mission Viejo just before 5:30 p.m., department spokesman Ryan Burris said. Witnesses said they noticed a man acting strangely inside the store.

The suspect, disguised with a wig, shot at deputies when they confronted him on the second story of a parking structure, Burris said. Deputies returned fire and struck him.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound and later died, Burris said. His identity was withheld pending notification of family.
