Normally this would be much of an issue but thatwas the day that the Virginia City earthquake swarm roared into action and produced 35 events, including 10 M 2s and a pair of M 3s. Therefore, the weekly earthquake totals have been adjusted accordingly. Interestingly, the swarm stopped, abruptly as no more activity was record- ed after the Thursday noon hour. The end of the seismic activity probably did not come soon enough tp the under- ground miners at the Comstock Mine. There are some reports of small cave- ins and miners were feeling quite un- easy being underground with the ground shaking, but it was the earthly groans that was so eerie. Across the Truckee Meadows Valley and in the Carson Range were three temblors, the largest otwhich registered M 2.1. A 2.6 jolt was felt in the Sacramento Valley near Glenn. Committee plans for Earth Week events Laura Beaton Staff Writer Last year's Earth Week celebrations were a big success. Numerous organizations and individuals collaborated to provide a variety of environment-related activities throughout the county. This year, in addition to celebrating Earth Day, April 22, the nation is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, which begins: "In order to assure that an increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization, does not occupy and modify all areas within the United States and its possessions, leaving no lands designated for preservation and protection in their natural condition, it is hereby declared to be the policy of the Congress to secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness." President Lyndon Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law Sept. 3, 1964, after nine years, 65 rewrites and 18 public hearings. Today almost 110 million acres of wilderness are protected within the National Wilderness Preservation System. The Earth Week Committee held its initial planning meeting Tuesday, Feb. 4, at the Feather River Land Trust in Quincy and discussed possible events such as film screenings, willow planting, land restoration, hikes, bike rides, kids' activities, creek cleanups, exhibits, workshops, tours and more. For more information or to join the committee, email or call Karen Kleven at 283-5758. Valentine's Day perfect time to buy gifts locally Makenzie Davis Staff Writer mdavis@lassen news.tom Valentine's Day is only a few short days away, but the holiday is a great opportunity to not only shower conversation hearts ' and roses on loved ones, but it can also be a time to support local businesses. According to a post on Independent We Stand, a website dedicated to shopping locally, the love-themed holiday is a great opportunity to increase local business. "So this year, when you're purchasing presents for YOUr sweetheart, consider shopping at locall owned flower sholsl 'ard 'shops, chocolate shops, gift shops and other indic businesses," suggested the website. According to National Retail Federation, the average person was expected to spend about $130 on loved ones around the holiday in 2013. Independent We Stand claimed on its website if every family in the country spent about $100 locally near Valentine's Day, roughly $7.8 billion could be returned to local communities nationwide. "By shopping local for flowers, chocolates, cards and other gifts, more of your money stays in the local economy," said Independent We Stand. Since Valentine's Day falls on a Friday this year, couples, singles and groups of friends have a wide variety of options open to them on how to celebrate the day. Call ahead to local restaurants to see if there will be any specials for the night or even 10ok up rec.ipes and snag your favorite ingredients at tegrocery store. Also, local stores offer great gifts ideas like flowers, homemade fudge, candles, jewelry and various other possibilities. Valentine's Day should not just be a holiday for couples in relationships, but a fun day to treat oneself and the surrounding community. Napa buys B of A building Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer The former Bank of America building, which was auctioned off Dec.13, 2013, is now in the hands of NAPA Auto Parts of Portola owner Kyle Porter. He said escrow should have closed Monday. Porter said he was looking for a bigger space to run the business, and when the building went on the market he saw it as a perfect opportunity at the right . location. The building is right off of Sierra Street and just a few buildings down from the current NAPA Auto Parts. Porter said he'd like to have the business moved by the end of spring. However, he monitors the eight other NAPA locations in Northeastern California, so he is not putting a date on it, as there are a lot of other projects also going on. "Moving Portola is our priority," he said. "It will be a good move. We wanted more space and this came up at the right time." Farmers' market needs members The Quincy Certified Farmers' Market is seeking new committee members to bring fresh ideas to the 15th annual farmers' market.
