2A Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Writing the rails Norman Holmes, a founder of the Feather River Rail Society and author of many books on railroads and trains, has announced the publication of his latest book, "California's Tidewater Shortlines." The new book takes him farther afield from local trains to the tidewater region stretching to Stockton from the Bay Area to the Sacramento Delta. He limits the scope of his book to short lines that had a connection to or touched the Western Pacific line. The book is filled with pictures that will delight rail fans and anyone partial to old pictures of wonderful- ly quaint locomotives, antiquated stations and days gone by. The book will be available at the Western Pacific Museum of Portola, or call Norm at 832-4737 for more information. A copy is also available at the Portola public library.

Conservation cost-share programs provide financial and technical assistance to farmers and ranchers for nat- ural resource improvements. Two parts of EQIP have an extended sign-up period, the organic initiative and combus- tion engine emissions reduc- tion initiative. These two facets of EQIP are only in their second year, and produc- ers may need extra time to enroll. The engine emissions reduc- tion portion has $13.4 million available and the organic ini- tiative has $2.4 million avail- able. Sign-up is open until Jan 29, for both initiatives. 'tall farm bill programs pro- vide agriculture producers an incentive to improve the envi- ronment and the functionality of their operations, but EQIP is our flagship conservation program," said NRCS State Conservationist Ed Burton. "Combined with technical assistance and conservation planning, EQIP has had a cru- cial impact on California's farms and ranches."
