8A Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2012 Feather River Bulletin SHEEHAN, from page 1A In 1997, the Quincy Library Group Forest Recovery Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 429-1. "The key word to John's life with the county is the word 'help,'" Jackson said. "There was never a time in which John wasn't available to help. It didn't matter whether he was paid for the help. It didn't matter whether he was -- in many cases -- even asked for the help. He was just always there. "And without him to help, we are all going to have to redouble our efforts." Sheehan started helping long before he became the head of the county's econom- ic arm, Plumas Corporation, in 1992. After three years with the Rural Housing Alliance in Washington, D.C., he arrived in Quincy in 1978 to become a deputy manager for Califor- nia Rural Development. "I didn't think the best things I was capable of doing would take place in D.C.," Sheehan said."I primarily like to work with organizing groups and accomplishing specific goals." He moved to Dunsmuir as executive director of Great Northern Corporation in 1981. He returned to Quincy in 1984 to become executive director of the Plumas County Com- munity Development Com- mission. When he became the head of Plumas Corporation, Sheehan thought it would be a short stay. "I thought that this job was so high profile and contentious that I would say something mean to someone and get fired within the first year," Sheehan said. Instead, his persistence and disarming personality, coated with a sense of humor, helped Sheehan instill a sense of confidence and determination among county leaders and activists. "I thought that the main thing was •to make sure that everybody here realized that the relationships that we have with the federal government and the state government and large pla/ers in our lives like PG&E don't have to be sub- servient relationships," Shee- han said. ,'We should never be intimidated by these entities with billion-dollar budgets, because they do stupidthings all the time .... Every day. The key is to learn about them and how they work and how they can work best to our benefit." The Rochester, N.Y., native soon put down roots in Plumas County. In 1980 he married Mary Dovi in the backyard of the Quincy home where they still live. They raised three boys who have all earned graduate degrees and are in meaning. ful careers of their own. "I can't conceive of a better place to raise kids," Sheehan said. "The types of opportuni- ties that kids have around here are broad enough that there are a lot of goo d citi- zens that get produced." Sheehan said he plans to remain active in the commu- nity. He wants to continue painting and writing essays. He wants to help the ski hill in Johnsville start operating again "as soon as possible." And he wants to remain active with Quincy Library Group. Sheehan offered his opinion on a number of local topics. He also talked about people who have influenced him. The people Bill Coates, Leonard Ross, Leah Wills, John Schramel and the late Gini Natal! were among those who had a last- ing impact on Sheehan. Coates is one of the Quincy Library Group founders. "He's always been a very wise person who really felt and feels that the role of government is not to be ideological, but it is to solve things and figure stuff out and make it work a little better for a lot of people," Sheehan said. "Leonard Ross has always been a wonderful beacon of wisdom," he said of the former county supervisor. "Bill and I and he worked together early on in moving and restoring the Beckwourth Cabin. "Leah Wills nurtured the Feather River Coordinated Resource Management group from its inception in the 1980s. "John Schramel wrote the book (actually a book) on the visual aspects of forest thin- ning- a good way to trans- mit those complex ideas. "The late Gini Natali led the charge on many projects, including the formation of Plumas Corporation and the Wildwood senior complex in Chester." Sheehan also praised the current staff at Plumas Cor- poration "who actually like what they do, and show it." Quincy Library Group Sheehan said he is proud of his contributions to QLG. "I really was a latecomer to it. And it wasn't my idea. But part of the persistence of getting it done, I think, is what I can take some credit for," he said. Would he consider it one of his biggest accomplishments? "Yeah, I would, And it's not so much the acreage that got done or the people who were employed. It's that we have to constantly restructure the relationship between local government and the state government and the federal government to work better. "The Forest Service just restricts activity so much. And those activities that are allowed are constrained, because there's no private ownership. "The Forest Service has to be constantly reminded of their duties to take care of Sheehan leaves his mark Following are sodqe of the accomplishments and projects John Sheehan has been involved with during his years in Plumas County. Sheehan helped to: • Incorporate the nonprofit Plumas County Senior Citizens Inc., and find financing for the Mountain View Manor senior housing project in Quincy (1980). • Complete public housing project construction in Chester and Greenville ('85). • Move ('85) and restore ('91)the historic Beckwourth Cabin. • Found the Feather River Coordinated Resource Management group ('85), • Organize and carry out the Holiday Tree for the UIS. Capitol effort ('85). • Develop the Feather River Canyon Community Services District ('85). • Develop the Quincy "Main Street" program ('87) and subse- quent county funding for local chambers of commerce. • Take public, refinance and manage the downtown Quincy water system ('90). • Incorporate the nonprofit Almanor Residential Inc., and acquire financing for Wildwood senior housing project in Chester ('91). • Incorporate and broaden the Plumas County Fire Safe Council ('98 and 2002). the place for the rest of the • Write the Quincy Library Group community stability proposal country -- but also to make  ('93). sure that we are able to survive and thrive here." Thanks in part to QLG's efforts the county has earned the Forest Service's attention. "We went past the stage where the Forest Service was ignoring us and not dealing with us seriously," Sheehan said. "The reality for the last couple years has been that all the Quincy Library Group meetings have all three forest supervisors in attendance." Visitors bureau The county supervisors said they are prepared to eliminate the bureau's fund- ing. Sheehan said that would be a mistake. "If Plumas County wants to thrive as a tourism destina- tion, it has to spend money to promote the county," • Stabilize the Antelope Cabin ('93, '08, '11). • Found the Plumas Community Foundation ('00). • Find.funding for three non-motorized trals in the Quincy area. • Write Quincy Library Group Economic Monitoring: the Baseline ('95), Plumas County Fiber Optics Feasibility ('95), Northeastern California Ethanol Manufacturing Feasibility Study ('97), Plumas County Retail and Service Leakage Survey ('00), Plumas County Basic Tourism Infrastructure Study ('02), Plumas County Fuel Reduction Demonstration Project Report ('05), Indian Valley Hazardous Fuel Reduction Project Report ('09). • Develop Ski Hill MOU ('03), Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl Feasibility Report ('05) and state-approved environmental document ('06). • Found the PlumasEounty Economic Recovery Committee ('08): • Serve as Feather River College trustee ('95 to present). Sheehan said. "I believe that a centralized approach is at least partially a good way to go on doing that. "I think it's important that the county find some money to fund the centralized visitors bureau. I think it's important that the county get the help of the local chambers of commerce to visitors bureau) is a money- making operation for the county and should be seen as that. And you don't just walk away from that kind of activity. "If the TOT goes down 10 or 20 percent, like it has in a number of places, we would be in a lot worse shape than we are now."

"People who live in this county understand how wonderful and beautiful a place it is," he said. "But we've got to continue to figure out ways to make a living, and not mess things up around us." Siskiyou Counties.'.' Snyder found the monitor- ing plan for quality of care equally lacking. "At best the monitoring plan creates a potential response after a quality deficiency has been identified." She also thought CHA's "takings" argument had merit. CHA argued that the cuts are an illegal "taking" in violation of both the United States and California consti- tutions. "The rate reductions are going to effectively seize the private property of hospitals without adequate compensation," CHA argued in its complaint. Snyder acknowledged that while a hospital's participa- tion in MediCal was volun- tary, its continued treatment of patient while trying to close or withdraw from MediCal is compulsory. In addition, the cuts postdate an institution's decision to participate in MediCal and change the terms of that participation. In.her analysis of the "irreparable harm" standard, Snyder again found CHA had met its burden of proof and cited the declaration of EPHC's chief executive offi- cer, Tom Hayes, as evidence. In assessing public interest, Snyder weighed the state's concern with its budget against "preventable human suffering." She concluded, "The State's fiscal crisis does not outweigh the serious irreparable injury plaintiffs would suffer absent the issuance of an injunction." With that, she signed the order for the injunction.
