It was the second sin- gle-digit tally in three weeks, the sixth in the last three months and the tenth in the last six months. There were only 11 weeks in 2014 where the atctivity fell be- low the 10 quakes-per-week level. Both 2013 and 2014 also started out on low seismic weeks. 2014 was a relatively calm seismic year, especially considering the moderately strong Canyondam M 5.7 earthquake that struck in 2013. There were a number of brief Canyondam aftershock surges, but nothing to vigorous. In February there was a 35- event sereies near Virgina City, Nevada, a robust micro-earthquake swarm near Grae: agle in late July and early August, and bub- bly earthquake sequequence at Lassen Peak following a 3.9 earthquake on Novem- "ber 11. There were only eight M 3s all year; nothing measured M 4.0 or stronger- the first lapse since 2009. Of particular interest was the ongoing swarm in norhern Nevada. Dr. Mark Satterfield displays the award he received in recognition of his work to ensure that the emergency room at Plumas District Hospital is "kid qualified." Photo by Debra Moore Emergency room doctor honored for pediatrics work Debra Moore Staff Writer Quincy physician Dr. Mark Satterfield has been recognized for his work on behalf of children. Satterfield recently received the second annual VEPeds award for outstanding contribution to quality in pediatric emergency care. Valley Emergency Physicians honored Satterfield for his work in making Plumas District Hospital's emergency room "kid qualified." While the group singled out Satterfield for his efforts, he shared the acknowledgment with the nurses and other staff who enabled the emergency room to achieve the desired certification. "We all took up the challenge to be the first rural hospital to achieve the designation," Satterfield said. That included ensuring that nurses, doctors and paramedics became certified in pediatric advanced life support. Additionally, the hospital had to purchase the necessary equipment and establish protocols for dealing with children. "We knew that we wanted to do the best job we could of taking care of pediatrics," Satterfield said. "Children have their whole futures in front of them." Valley Emergency Physicians provides personnel and programs for emergency rooms in large urban trauma centers, as well as small rural hospitals. Satterfield worked with Dr. Ron Diekmann, the former chief of pediatrics for San Francisco General, to achieve the "kid qualified" designation for Plumas District. Portola's Santa Train receives strong support Ann Powers Staff Writer Western Pacific Railroad Museum officials say the 2014 Santa Train Christmas event, marking its 20-year anniversary, had a banner year thanks to an outpouring of community support. "The Santa Train event this year was a big success," said Debbie Baer, Feather River Rail Society volunteer and event organizer. "We saw lots of young children who were dressed in their Christmas finery for a classic photo of Santa and Mrs. Claus." The annual celebration invites holiday cheer-seekers to visit the Portola railyard to meet Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, tour heated train cars decorated with Christmas flair and enjoy complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, cider and homemade cookies. It also serves as a collection site for Eastern Plumas Community Assistance Network, the local food pantry. During this past season, Santa Train was held the first three Saturdays in December. By Dec. 20, event volunteers had greeted 367 carloads of guests and collected 1,150 pounds of canned goods for EPCAN's holiday food drive, according to Baer. She thanks the community and local businesses and organizations for helping make the festivities a success. "And a special thank-you to "And a special thank-you to Santa (Dave Rudolph) and Mrs. Claus (Linda Knudsen) for lending their expertise and warm laps to 367 carloads of excited children and parents."
