Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014 9A .: Throngs of people discover Plumas at L.A. showcase Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer More than 32,000 people got a glimpse of Plumas County on Feb. 8 and 9 at the Travel and Adventure Show in Los Angeles. Because of the hard work of Audrey Ellis of the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce and Trish Wilburn of Greenhorn Ranch, thousands of adventure-seeking tourists have discovered a new place to visit. With donations and funding from the community, the chamber and Greenhorn Ranch, Ellis and Wilburn got the money to attend the show, which is now the largest showcase of its kind in the country. "It was absolutely awesome," said Ellis. "I never expected to see so much interest in Plumas County. People didn't know where we were and now they do." Ellis said these types of shows are for people who enjoy traveling and are looking for new places to go. She said the spectrum of attendees at the show was vast. Among the crowds was a multitude of people from foreign countries and hordes of families and couples. J "1 never expected to see so much interest in Plumas County." Audrey Ellis, Director, Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce A booth at the show cost more than $4,000, but Greenhorn Ranch split the cost with the self-funded chamber. Ellis said businesses that wanted to be represented at the show contributed to the cost also. "To me it was money well spent," she said. "I know I connected with thousands of people." When they left the county, the Greenhorn Ranch SUV, complete with horns on the bumper, was loaded with 1,500 brochures, visitors guides, dining guides and free giveaway bags, as well as material to promote the Painter Margie Miller instructs Quincy Elementary students in the art of painting, courtesy of the Mohawk Valley Artists' Guild, in honor of late Iongtime teacher and art supporter Mary Dovi. Quincy El receives grant in memory of Mary Dovi I.ntnn'antorw Staff Writer The Mohawk Vhlley Artists' Guild presented Quincy Elementary School with a grant to bring Nevada City painter Margie Miller into each K-6 classroom. Each class receives a haft-day painting lesson, learning new techniques while using professional artist supplies. Each lesson ends with a completed painting. This grant is awarded in memory of longtime Quincy educator and art supporter Mary Dovi, who died in 2012. Margie Miller has been teaching painting to children and adults for more than 25 years. An award-winning art educator, she is a frequent workshop presenter at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento and a project developer for the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Her paintings hang in public and private collections and most recently were displayed at the Sacramento International Airport.

They promoted every Plumas County asset from golf, fishing, hiking and mountain biking to the newest development in fiber optics and high-speed Internet coming to the area. Ellis said all the chambers in the county were involved in getting them to the show. They brought information on Lake Almanor and the northern part of the county as well. She got an estimated 11,000 email addresses from the show. Most of them were Lions 00tigers and , , , acquired via a drawing for a Plumas County vacation gift basket, valued around $1,100 and donated by local merchants. Ellis said she would use the emails to send. Eastern Plumas County notifications and updates. Their booth's popularity was also attributed to their prime location at the showcase, as they were located right next to the London and Hong Kong booths. "I was very pleased," Ellis said. "I know it's a lot of cost i and a lot of work, but I do believe it benefits the county." a dentist E Costumed workers help make visiting the dentist a little less scary.

Specific vegetation man- agement projects planned within the tim- bered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Calpine. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of outages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather conditions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proximity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment. Our vegetation management is conducted following best management prac- tices defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric ser- vice. We will be inspecting electrical equip- ment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require access to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them.
