Fire personnel in the Sequoia National Forest and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks continue managing lands affected by the 174,178-acre SQF Complex. The lightning-caused Castle and Shotgun Fires were discovered on August 19, 2020, and later managed as one incident named the SQF Complex. The Castle Fire burned on portions of the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument (131,087acres), Inyo National Forest (12,508 acres), Sequoia National Park (18,984 acres), lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (736 acres), State (4,017 acres), County, and private lands (4,004 acres) and threatened the Tule River Indian Reservation. The Shotgun Fire burned 841 acres in the Golden Trout Wilderness, Sequoia National Forest.

Containment of the SQF Complex reached 100% for the portion of the fire managed by the Sequoia National Forest. Smoldering debris around tree trunks continued to weaken fire-damaged trees, posing a hazard of them falling at any time. Smoldering stump holes and their roots were found burning months after a wildfire, posing a hazard for anyone stepping near or on them. Much work is left to be done on fire suppression repair heavy equipment is anticipated to return in the spring to continue this effort.

Forest officials have extended the closure of Sequoia National Forest managed land affected by the Castle Fire through December 31, 2021. Details of the Forest Closure and a map of the closed area can be found in the highlighted section above. The fire area is being evaluated for what portions can be reopened to the public. Hazards exist that may keep many roads and trails closed for public safety.

World War II

Castle Rock stood out of San Diego, California, on 18 December 1944 bound for Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and Eniwetok, where she arrived on 28 January 1945. Assigned to escort convoys between Saipan, Guam, and Ulithi Atoll until 20 March 1945, Castle Rock then took up duties of tending seaplanes at Saipan. Her seaplanes carried out varied air operations, including reconnaissance, search, and antisubmarine warfare activities, while Castle Rock herself also performed local escort duties.

Post-World War II

On 28 November 1945, Castle Rock sailed from Saipan for Guam, where she embarked a group assigned to study Japanese defenses on Chichi Jima and Truk. This continued until 5 January 1946, when Castle Rock returned to seaplane tender operations at Saipan.

Castle Rock left Saipan on 9 March 1946, arriving at San Francisco, California, on 27 March 1946. She was decommissioned there on 6 August 1946

战前情况 编辑

1974年1月14日,中国人民解放军海军南海舰队要求榆林海军基地(駐广东省崖县,现海南省三亚市)组织一次西沙巡逻。这是自1959年3月以来南海舰队第77次对西沙巡逻。榆林海军基地副司令员兼参谋长魏鸣森任西沙巡逻海上编队指挥组(简称“海指”)指挥员,指挥2艘猎潜艇赶赴西沙永乐群岛海域巡逻

1月15日,上午10時30分,南越海軍16號艦“李常傑”號 巡防舰 ( 英语 : USS Chincoteague (AVP-24) ) (Ly Thường Kiệt,舷號HQ-16)駛進永樂群島,與中國大陸南海水产公司捕魚船“南漁402、407”輪發生對峙,其後砲擊甘泉島上升掛的中華人民共和國國旗,然後在離402漁船二百多米遠的海域停靠,當日17時許,南越16號艦放下一艘小艇,載7名武裝陸戰隊員,1名海關人員帶著報話機嘗試登上402漁船進行臨檢。在402號漁船的反抗下,南越小艇調頭駛回。

1月16日下午,中国人民解放军海军南海舰队榆林海军基地奉命派出猎潜艇73大队的271、274号猎潜艇编队,设立海上编队指挥所,271艇为指挥艇,274艇为预备指挥艇。当时南海舰队战斗力最强的是榆林海军基地护卫舰1大队,不过正在坞修 [4] ,而且,当时命令规定的任务性质是在西沙永乐群岛执行第77次巡逻,保护渔民和永乐群岛琛航、广金、晋卿各岛的安全 [5] 。16日19时30分271编队出航,随艇带去7卡车物资和帐篷等。17日10时30分,猎潜艇编队到达永兴岛,准备接载西南中沙人武部派遣的武装民兵2个排进驻琛航岛、晋卿岛。

1月17日下午,南越海軍4号舰“陳慶餘”號 护航驱逐舰 (Trần Khánh Dư,舷號HQ-4)到达。在珊瑚岛与南越16號驱逐舰会合。17日14时20分,4号舰放下2艘小艇,载27名军人,登上甘泉岛,并取下了中国渔民升挂在岛上的五星紅旗,插上了南越国旗。之后,南越4号舰、16号舰驱逐正在甘泉岛、羚羊礁附近海域的中国漁船,但未能成功。

对峙 编辑

1月17日15时,人民解放軍海軍271、274猎潜艇编队运送一个排武装民兵从永兴岛出发。18时许271、274编队到达在永乐群岛海域,与南越海軍 4号舰 ( 英语 : USS Forster (DE-334) ) “陈庆馀”号对峙,并与南渔402、407渔轮汇合。为解决登岛民兵的淡水问题,271、274艇所有能装水的工具都装上了淡水。17日21时30分至次日凌晨2时30分,第一批武装守岛民兵携带一个月口粮换乘南渔402号、407号渔轮的8条小舢板星夜登上晋卿岛设防,开设前线守岛作战指挥部,同时海軍派了一个信号兵上岛担任舰岛之间的联络工作。武装民兵排登上晋卿岛后立即抢挖战壕和修筑工事,共开通道路1200米,挖战壕40米,修炮位3个,轻重机枪掩体各2个,单人掩体21个,搭帐篷6顶,做好抗击敌人登陆的准备。

交火 编辑

19日当天上午,人民解放軍海軍396、389编队在廣金島西北与南越海軍16号舰“李常杰”号、10号舰 “日早”号 ( 英语 : USS Serene (AM-300) ) 对峙;人民解放軍海軍271、274编队至廣金島东南海面与南越海軍5号舰“陈平仲”号、4号舰“陈庆馀”号对峙。9时4分,南越海軍4号舰后甲板机枪鸣枪2发,9时20分,登岛南越軍全部撤回。9时30分,南越舰队得到了开火命令 [11] 。9时34分,5号舰、4号舰离开琛航島海域驶向深水区,廣金島西北的16号舰、10号舰也转向羚羊礁、甘泉島方向航行。

11时,南越海軍4、5号舰轻伤、16号舰重伤主动撤离(倾斜15度,舯部冒起浓烟,战后检查舰上共有大小弹痕820处) [12] , 10號艦艦長 ( 英语 : Ngụy Văn Thà ) 陣亡,失去機動力和開火能力。396舰即驶出澙湖南下支援271编队,11时25分南越4号、5号舰又从预警雷达上发现人民解放軍海軍增援艇队,4号、5号舰向东南方向撤离战场。人民解放軍海軍271艇轻伤 [13] ;274号艇重伤仍可作战;396舰后甲板被南越16号舰的一枚127毫米炮弹命中;389号舰重伤操纵失灵(舰体后部被南越10号舰撞上),271艇上的“海指”指挥员魏鸣森目视观察到389舰情况危急后命令其冲滩,389舰于11时50分抢滩搁浅。11时30分,中國海軍281、282编队抵达,12时12分,攻击南越10号舰,12时30分,南越10号舰的弹药库被命中爆炸 [14] ,于当日14时52分沉没于羚羊礁以南海域。

    司令员江雪山率军区机关部份人员和海、空军有关人员组成西沙自卫反击作战基本指挥所(简称西沙基指)进驻榆林要塞区机关。广州军区司令部副参谋长焦玉山也下派进驻西沙基指。
  1. 海南军区副司令员江海率军区和榆林要塞区机关部分人员组成西沙自卫反击作战前线基本指挥所(简称西沙前指)随参战部队开进,负责前方指挥。 派出加强营规模担任收复西沙永乐群岛敌占岛屿作战任务。

榆林要塞区按上级命令与预案,决定要塞区司令部副参谋长刘殿臣、作训科副科长李社农、侦察参谋孙书庚、通信参谋周福生组成指挥小组参加西沙前指;守备第一五0团团长冯怀宪、二营营长邢福宏带领该团二营四连、五连、一营一连、要塞区直属两栖侦察队、要塞区直属工兵营一个工兵排、第一、二守备区直属14.5毫米双管高射机枪各一个排、后勤医疗保障分队,共500余人组成的加强营担任收复西沙永乐群岛敌占岛屿作战任务。守备第一五Ο团主力并加强水陆坦克连、82毫米口径迫击炮连和120毫米迫击炮连,为后梯队在榆林港战备侯船待航。 [15] 崖县人民武装部动员500名支前民兵在榆林军港担任码头装卸载、抬担架救护伤员任务。考虑到要塞区部队收复敌占西沙岛屿之后转为岛屿坚守防御时,生活物资供应与和构筑工事掩体战备建材可能一时跟不上问题,要塞区后勤部门向地方预定2万个椰子以备岛上部队饮食,还预定了10万块砖石。

Bee Gees

Relying on their top-notch songwriting and impeccable vocals, the Bee Gees were able to craft a long-running career that began in the late '50s in Australia. Along the way they became a hit-producing psychedelic pop group in England during the '60s and the biggest disco band in the world in the '70s, and had a late comeback as adult contemporary crooners in the '90s. Their long-reaching influence extended past sales figures and saw their sound and style mirrored in acts as disparate as Justin Timberlake and of Montreal.

The group was also music's most successful brother act. Barry Gibb, born on September 1, 1946, in Manchester, England, and his fraternal twin brothers Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb, born on December 22, 1949, on the Isle of Man, were three of five children. The three of them gravitated toward music, encouraged by their father, who saw his sons at first as a diminutive version of the Mills Brothers. The three Gibb brothers made their earliest performances at local movie theaters in Manchester in 1955, singing between shows. The family moved to Australia in 1958, resettling near Brisbane. Now known as the Brothers Gibb -- with Barry writing songs -- they attracted the attention of a local DJ, and eventually got their own local television show. It was around this time that they took on the name the Bee Gees (for Brothers Gibb). The trio was astoundingly popular in the press and on television, but actual hit records eluded them.

By late 1966, they'd decided to return to England -- which, thanks to the Beatles, was now the center of the world for rock and popular music. The group had sent demo recordings ahead of them, and "Spicks & Specks" -- which became their first Australian hit while they were in mid-ocean -- had attracted the interest of manager Robert Stigwood. The trio was signed by Stigwood upon their arrival, and began shaping their sound in the environment of Swinging London. Barry and Robin Gibb alternated the lead vocal spot, harmonizing together and with Maurice. Barry played rhythm guitar, while Maurice played bass, piano, organ, and Mellotron, among other instruments. Their first English recording, "New York Mining Disaster 1941," an original by the group with a haunting melody and a strangely surreal, almost psychedelic ambience, was released in mid-1967 and made the Top 20 in England and America. They had successful follow-ups with "Holiday" and "To Love Somebody," the latter actually written for Otis Redding to record, and "Massachusetts," which topped the U.K. charts.

After Bee Gees' 1st, the Gibb brothers took over producing their own records. It was easy, amid the sheer beauty of their recordings, to overlook the range of influences that went into their sound, which came from a multitude of sources, including American country music and soul music. At this point in their history, they were most comfortable deconstructing elements in the singing and harmonies of Black American music and rebuilding them in their style.

In 1969, the trio split up in a dispute involving the Odessa album. A lushly orchestrated double LP, it was their most ambitious recording to date, but they were unable to agree on which song would be the single, and Robin walked out. Barry and Maurice held on to the Bee Gees name for one LP, Cucumber Castle, while Robin released Robin's Reign. Without a group to promote it, the Odessa album never sold the way it might have, even with a hit, "First of May." Cucumber Castle generated several successful singles in England and Germany, including the gorgeous, African-influenced "I.O.I.O.," while Robin had a hit with "Saved by the Bell."

In 1970, almost two years older and a good deal wiser, they decided to get back together. They related to each other better and had also evolved musically, now creating a progressive pop/rock sound similar to the Moody Blues. They came back on a high note with two dazzling songs: the soulful "Lonely Days," the group's first number one hit in America and the achingly lyrical "Morning of My Life," which proved so popular with fans that the group was still doing it in concert decades later.

Their success began to ebb, however, after another huge international hit with "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" in 1971. The single "Run to Me" made the Top 20 in 1972, but the album To Whom It May Concern was forgotten almost instantly after a brief chart run. Their fortunes continued in reverse during 1973 with Life in a Tin Can and the single "Saw a New Morning" -- despite a move to America and a heavy promotional push, the song never made the Top 40 and the album stalled out.

The trio was falling into a deep creative and commercial hole. Rescue came from a suggestion by Eric Clapton that they try recording at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida, where he had just cut an album. The Bee Gees took his advice and came back with Mr. Natural (1974), produced by Arif Mardin. This record was a departure with its heavily Americanized R&B sound, and the following year they plunged headfirst into the new sound with Main Course -- the emphasis was now on dance rhythms, high harmonies, and a funk beat. And spearheading the new sound was Barry Gibb, who, for the first time, sang falsetto and discovered that he could delight audiences in that register. "Jive Talkin'," the first single off the album, became their second American number one single, and was followed up with "Nights on Broadway" and then the album Children of the World, which yielded the hits "You Should Be Dancing" and "Love So Right." Then, in 1977, their featured numbers on the soundtrack to the Robert Stigwood-produced Saturday Night Fever, "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love," and "Night Fever," each topped the charts, even as the soundtrack album stayed in the top spot for 24 weeks. In the process, the disco era in America was born -- Saturday Night Fever, as an album and a film, supercharged the phenomenon and broadened its audience by tens of millions, with the Bee Gees at the forefront of the music.

It was a profound moment although, ironically, there wasn't that much difference in their sound. Amid the dance numbers, the Bee Gees still did a healthy portion of romantic ballads that each offered memorable hooks. They'd simply decided, at Arif Mardin's urging, to forget the fact that they were white Englishmen and plunged into soul music, emulating, in their own terms, the funkier Philadelphia soul sounds that all three brothers knew and loved. In one fell swoop, the group had managed to meld every influence they'd ever embraced, from the Mills Brothers and the Beatles to early-'70s soul, into something of their own that was virtually irresistible. Spirits Having Flown was their crowning commercial triumph, topping 30 million in sales and yielding three more number one singles.

By the end of the '70s, however, the disco era was waning from a combination of the bad economy, political chaos domestically and internationally (leading to the election of Ronald Reagan), and a general burnout of the participants from too many drugs and profligate sex (which would precipitate an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases and herald the outbreak of AIDS in the United States). There had already been an ad hoc reaction against the group's dominance of the airwaves, with mass burnings of Bee Gees posters and albums organized by DJs. The Bee Gees themselves helped contribute to the end of the party with their participation (at Stigwood's insistence) in the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, "inspired" (if that's the word) by the Beatles album. The movie was a commercial and critical disaster, and an embarrassment to all concerned.

In America, the Bee Gees were virtually invisible for most of the '80s. Instead, Barry Gibb pursued work as a producer for other artists, creating hits for Barbra Streisand and Diana Ross. By 1987 and the E.S.P. album, their sales had rebounded everywhere but the United States, yielding a number one single (outside of the U.S.) in "You Win Again." Their 1989 album, One, got a good reception around the world and generated a Top Ten U.S. single. And in the '90s, PolyGram Records released the four-CD anthology Tales from the Brothers Gibb, which sold well around the world. The trio's 1997 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame led to a resurgence of interest, which heralded the release of the live album One Night Only (1998), cut at their first American concert in almost a decade.

The Bee Gees remained active until the January 2003 death of Maurice from cardiac arrest during surgery. Following his death, Robin and Barry decided to cease performing as the Bee Gees. Their recorded legacy, however, subsequently became more visible than it had been in decades with the move of their catalog to Warner/Reprise. The latter company began the long-awaited upgraded CD reissue of the Bee Gees' post-1966 library, including the first-ever release of outtakes and rehearsal versions of songs. Robin was diagnosed with and underwent treatment for cancer in 2011. He died in London in May 2012 due to complications from cancer and intestinal surgery he was 62 years old. Given the previous deaths of Andy (who had several number one hits and who died of an inflammatory heart virus in 1988) and Maurice Gibb, Robin was the third Gibb brother and second member of the Bee Gees to pass away. In the wake of tragedy, Barry kept working, appearing on other people's records, playing concerts, and releasing a solo album titled In the Now in 2016. The next year the Bee Gees were honored at the 2017 Grammys then their music was featured in the star-studded concert Stayin' Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees, which was broadcast by CBS in April.
