West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.

Man pleads guilty to rape, murder of teen in Citrus Heights park


Anton Johnson will be sentenced to 32 years to life, plus eight years in prison when he is sentenced for the first-degree murder, rape and torture of 17-year-old Rebecca Layson four and a half years ago.

Layson was found dead, hidden in bushes at Van Maren Park on Feb. 12, 2010. She hadn't returned home after going out with her boyfriend.

According to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office, Johnson and his friends had gone to the park to hang out and drink. Layson was there with her boyfriend, but didn't know Johnson. Investigators said Layson was not drinking with the others. Eventually, everyone left except Layson, her boyfriend and Johnson.

The boyfriend, who was initially accused of harming Layson, drank too much and became sick. Layson texted a friend she was going to walk him home.
