Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014 9A Volunteers needed for festival It's year 2 for Groundhog Fever Fest James Wilson Sports Editor The second annual Groundhog Fever Fest, set for Feb. 1, is rapidly approaching and organizers with the Quincy Revival Committee are on the lookout for volunteers who would like to help out during the festivities. The chili cook-off, one of the most popular events of the festival last year, still has a few spots remaining for those interested in competing in the cooking challenge. This year two teams will be declared winners: one for People's Choice and one for Judges' Choice. The cost to compete in the cook-off is $30. Volunteers are also needed to help with a variety of events. A children's area is set to keep young festivalgoers entertained. Adults are needed to help supervise the area. Volunteers are also needed to help with ticket taking, setup and breakdown. The festival will be held in front of the courthouse. In addition to all the popular events from last year, a mustache contest will be featured at the festival. Guys who are growing out their 'staches are encouraged to style them and enter the contest. There will be a prize for the best "faux-stache" as well, so ladies are encouraged to get creative. There is still some space open for vendors as well. A vending booth costs $25 for a commercial booth and space is free for nonprofit organizations. Those interested can go to or call James Wilson at 510-230-9442. Superintendent Micheline Miglis, left, presents Quincy Special Day School preschool student Julian Castillo-Elliston with the Suprintendent's Award on Jan. 9. Teacher Linda Gay, right, told the board that since his enrollment, Julian has made leaps and bounds, progressing from unintelligible speech to being able to speak clearly and communicate with others. Photos by Laura Beaton Special Day School students receive Superintendent's Award Laura Beaton Staff Writer Six-year-old Davis Friden's parents were told by doctors that their son would never walk or talk. At the Jan. 9 Plumas Unified School District board meeting, those doctors were undeniably proved wrong, as Davis stood in front of board members and received the Superintendent's Award from Superintendent Micheline Miglis. Not only can Davis walk, he can run, spell his own name, talk (sometimes more than his teacher would llke), show empathy and compassion, and so much more. Quincy Special Day , School preschool teacher Linda Gay said she was honored to be Davis' teacher. She and Davis; team have helped him make a radical trfinsformation into the vivacious boy he is today. Gay said he has learned letter, sound and number recognition, knows all his colors and is potty trained. A second success story was celebrated as Julian Castillo-Elliston was also honored with the Superintendent's Award. When Gay met Julian in spring 2012, his parents could not understand what their son tried to communicate to them. Julian entered Gay's classroom and received speech services and a language-rich program that turned his unintelligible sounds into words that his Davis Friden, 6, waits to receive the Superintendent's Award at the Jan. 9 school board meeting. Quincy Special Day School preschool teacher Linda Gay said she is proud to be a part of Davis' team, which proved doctors -- who had told his parents he would never walk or talk -- wrong. peers, parents and teachers could understand. Julian became able to express his needs and interact with peers, who Gay said now flock to him instead of avoiding him. Gay praised the boys' families for allowing her to be a part of their children's lives. "Working with your children is my passion and I am able to share this experience with you tonight due to all of the patience, hard work, love and support you provide them when they are not with me." $ (plus Recycle Fee & Sales Tax) * Most passenger cars & light trucks.
