Earthquake activity increased slightly following the previous week, creeping back into double-digit figured for the first time in four weeks and since the robust earthquake swarm following the M 3.9 jolt at Lassen Peak. The Lassen swarm pro- duced 235 quakes, including the M 3.9 and 42 M Zs. Most of the activity occurred be- tween 1-3 miles below the surface but some were very close to the surface and other nearly 8 miles deep. Volcanoes can be con- sidered as cracks whereby magma can find its way to the surface. This earthquake sequence showed that the "crack" had abundant movement throughout its length to the magma chamber. There was no " word from Park officials if the hot springs responded to the activity. The swarm died out on November 20, but a lone M 1.1 this week indicated it may not be over yet. The earthquake swarm in northern Washoe County, Nevada continued, pro- ducing another 93 events, including one as large as M 4.0 on December 10. Two quakes registering M ;'.0 occurred in the wee hours on December 8 and 9. il ro inues MR Debra Moore Staff Writer "You're lying to me," Supervisor Kevin Goss told representatives of Frontier Communications, as he strove to prove that the company had been notified in a timely manner of plans to underground utilities through Greenville. "We did search all of our records and didn't uncover any documentation," said Charlie Born, the manager of government and external auairs tor Frontier. But whether representatives had been alerted to plans may be a moot point, because utility company officials maintain they can't justify the expense of undergrounding lines for so few customers. If the full plan were to be implemented, Frontier's cost would be approximately $1.2 million; the new scaled-back version would cost Frontier about $275,000. "With 10 working lines, that's about $27,000 per line," said Born. "It's never going to pencil; it's whether the company will do what's right," said Board Chairman Jon Kennedy. The exchange came during a public hearing that had been continued to the Board of Supervisors' Dec. 16 meeting. "This chunk of money is a hard pill to swallow," Born said. "We choose to put our money into improving services." Placing the utility lines underground is part of Greenville's beautification effort designed to coordinate with Caltrans' work in 2015. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is prepared to place its lines underground and has the money earmarked for the project, but can't use ratepayer dollars to pay for another utility's lines. And if Frontier's lines remain above ground on its poles, PG&E can't participate either. Public Works Director Bob Perreault, who has been coordinating the project, hopes that the California Public Utilities Commission would weigh in on the situation, but that hadn't occurred by the Dec. 16 meeting so the public hearing will be continued to Jan. 20, 2015. "We've had no feedback from the California PUC in regard to our concerns with Frontier not financing," Perreault said. "PG&E is in a holding situation and is supportive of the county."

Help preserve natural habitat by collecting seeds, planting, helping maintain trails and weeding introduced OBITUARY Jana Lynn Burgess Jana Lynn Burgess passed away in her home with Doug Kotterman on Jan. 1, 2015. Jana was born JulY 14, 1962, in Eureka. Jana loved being around family and friends, especially her son Troy Madden, Rachael and their children Iris, Mercedeze and Grady, who all loved calling her Nana Jana. She spent most of her adult life in the Quincy area. Jana loved the outdoors from the beach to the forest and everything in between. She loved sunshine and snow, and especially loved snowmobiling. She loved telling stories about her adventures from California to Arizona to Hawaii. Jana was a true champion for animals, and she especially loved stray dogs and exotic birds. She fostered many animals in Quincy and loved to do volunteer work. If you were a friend, you became family and you knew you were loved. Jana was fiercely loyal, protective and your biggest fan. She loved to brag about everyone she loved. If you were family or a friend and someone needed help, just because you were part of their family she jumped right in and did what needed to get done. People who knew her loved her quick smile, laugh, hugs and how she always said goodbye with "love ya." So be quick to smile, laugh and say "love ya." There will be an informal potluck gathering at the Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn in Eureka on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 11 a.m. to share stories and her joy of cooking with those who loved her. For more information, call Doug at 707-442-2358. There will also be a gathering in Quincy in July. ,I ;i
