Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010 15B DAM, from page 1B Plumas Corporation Director John Sheehan explained that 99 percent of the time beavers are beneficial to human and animal water uses, but in rare cases like this people needed to step in, particularly if the beavers weren't reacting to the change in creek flows. In this picture of a smaller dam upstream, the difference in flow rates of water passing around and through the dam is noticeable. The water flow in the foreground is actually increased because less water can make it through the dam. Beavers create their dams to raise the water level of an area because they prefer pond-like envi- ronments, which give them protection and allow them to store food for the winter. They prefer the entrances to lodges like this one--located further upstream--to be deep underwater so predators cannot reach them. Photos by Joshua Sebold Doug Sheehy sings a sweet song at Words & Music Join friends and neighbors Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Chester Words & Music at the Coffee Station. Doors open at 7 p.m. and no-host coffees, teas and liba- tions will be available. Doug Sheehy will be the featured artist. Admission is $3. Sheehy has been perform- ing, teaching and playing music in northeastern Califor- nia for more than 30 years in a variety of environments. He first played in Quincy back in his college days and then returned frequently with his brother Dave, playing primarily at The Loft. Lots of nationwide road- work and performances with different configurations of musicians ensued until he settled in Susanville. He developed a "Performed History of American Music" that he presented to many Plumas and Lassen county schools and began teaching music history, theory and appreciation at Lassen Community College while he continued his performance adventures. Sheehy organized and supervised summer music camps for several years with area teenagers, exposing them to recording studios, agents, college music facili- ties, first-class performance venues, etc. to give them a re- al look at the world of music. "One of the most fulfilling experiences of my life," Shee- hy said of his association with Scattered Blue, an all- original band that included Quincy locals Tom Van Rossum, Roger Tew, Bill Boggio, Dave Hollister and his brother Dave. Doug Sheehy will headline Words & Music when it re- turns to the Coffee Station in Chester Thursday, Jan. 28. Pho- to courtesy Plumas Arts Plumas Arts Executive Director Roxanne Valladao invited Sheehy to be guest artist at Words & Music at Morning Thunder some time ago. In the process, she got him involved in the Lassen County Arts Council, He quickly brought Words & Music to Susanville and be- came a passionate and hard- working advocate of the arts in Lassen County. In fact, Sheehy is now president of the arts council. Along with his teaching duties, both at the college and with private students, Sheehy performs with a host of ensembles of which the most exciting is 8 O'Clock Jazz. The group has become a favorite of Chester residents with its cool blend of origi- nals and Latin- flavored arrangements of standards. A trio of hot horn players anchors it. In addition, Sheehy continues to work with old buddies The Try Tones, who focus on tight three-part harmony and tasty acoustic guitar work. Every summer, Lassen County comes out in force to groove with another show by Penny Lane, the Beatles tribute band of which he is a part. Sheehy also continues to do some solo work. When not performing, he is busy putting together and promoting another arts event. It may be San Francis- co Shakespeare, some edgy music, a documentary film- maker or whatever. In the immortal words of his father- in-law, "Man, for a guy who doesn't have a job, you sure are busy." Words & Music is also a place for musicians and writers to share their talents with a very receptive crowd. Open stage (it is often called open mic, but no micro- phones are used at the venue) will follow the featured set. Any aspiring poets, musi- cians, storytellers, actors or performers are encouraged to sign up at the door for a 5- to 7-minute time slot. All music performances must be acoustic only, with no electrical instruments or sound equipment allowed. Original work is always encouraged. Words and Music is an acoustic music and spoken word program which has been sponsored and facili- tated by Plumas Arts since 1989.
