Eighteen cabins in the popular Curry Village area of Yosemite Village have been closed after a study said they were in danger of being struck by falling rock.

The Curry Village closings came last week, but weren't announced until Thursday, after a National Park Service survey made to assess which rocks are in danger of falling - and where -- pinpointed structures in harm's way. The seven-by-one-mile Yosemite Valley, site of Curry Village, is the hub of visitor activity in the popular park. About 90% of its nearly 4 million annual visitors congregate in the valley, which was formed by glaciers - and tumbling boulders.

Yosemite fire managers have announced the 2012 Fire Season began yesterday, Monday, May 21, 2012. Fire season officially begins when seasonal firefighting equipment and personnel are in place, prepared and ready to respond.

Additionally, grasses and other vegetation at the lower elevations have begun to dry out. This year, vegetation is drying out faster than average due to the low snowpack the park received over the winter.

Yolo County's Child Welfare Services system may go through substantial changes in the coming months as county supervisors take a deeper look at its operations.

The designation of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month will take on particular significance in Yolo County where the rate of known child abuse cases has continued to exceed the statewide average, according to children's advocates.

While Yolo County Child Welfare Services attributes the majority of child neglect and abuse calls to parental drug use, there's no doubt the impact of the recession is a contributing factor. In 2009, Yolo County had a far greater rate of substantiated cases of child abuse from child welfare referrals than the statewide average.

"You can go out there and spend $1,000 on a stroller and a $100 on a pair of shoes that your baby will grow out of in 3-4 weeks."
