"Contests such as 'Escribo en Espafiol' allow students to challenge their Spanish writ- ing skills in an exciting and inventive way. Engaging stu- dents in their studies through such activities increases suc- cess rates and an overall in- terest in learning. "Good luck to all those who participate," said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.

But, the project is more ex- pensive because of manage- ment changes in the county's buildings and grounds depart- ment, resulting in a costlier private-sector bid. Dennison said the extra ex- pense "is not a good way of do- ing business." Neither Dennison, nor the other supervisors, was willing to block Frady's request for the furniture. That's most because the probation department has not bought new furniture in near- ly three decades. "I've been pretty frugal over the years," Frady said. The Plumas County District Attorney will not seek the death penalty against Rain Dancer Dickey-O'Brien, who is accused of slaying a Forest Service worker. The motion was filed by Deputy District Attorney Jeff Cunan, who is prosecuting the case. But, the defendant, who has been ordered to answer to a count of first-degree murder, still faces life in prison with- out the possibility of parole. A trial date has not been scheduled, but that is one of the issues that may be dis- cussed during a Jan. 17 pretri- al conference in Plumas Coun- ty Superior Court. Dickey-O'Brien is accused of the January 2000 shooting death of Mark "Jerry" Lev- itoff, whose body was found near Lake Almanor. The defendant was arrested in Utah several days after Lev- itoffs death. At a hearing in November, Cunan presented evidence that links Dickey-O'Brien to the homicide, including the shotgun used to kill Levitoff. reat service. i The Blue Oval Certified Thuml:~dnt represents the commitment of each employee in our d~de,llhip to provide their own unique brar~l of, por$on~ service to meet and exceed your expectations with every purc~e, lem ~ service experience.
