He said nine locations shown here were tagged with graffiti. Some of the graffiti messages were associated with a Mexican mafia prison gang, but the sheriff's office didn't know if this meant a supporter of that organization caused the damage or someone just wanted it to look that way. Webb said anyone with information about the vandalism should contact the sheriff's office at 283-6363. As always, tips may be anonymous. Graphic by Kevin Mallory Counties want travel plan revised Sam Williams Staff Writer Three northeastern Califor- nia counties have joined with the Lassen County Board of Supervisors in ex- pressing their dissatisfaction with the recently approved Motorized Travel Manage- ment Plans for the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta-Trinity national forests as they seek greater recreational access for off-highway vehicle users. In a joint letter from the boards of supervisors in Lassen, Plumas, Shasta and Butte counties, supervisors wrote, "The proposed plans are unacceptable and need to be revisited." Lassen County District 3 Supervisor Lloyd Keefer has complained loudly about the proposed plan and has re- peatedly asked the Forest Service to address his and the other supervisors' con- cerns before making a final decision. "The letter addresses the lack of coordination we had between the Forest Service and the counties' involve- ment," Keefer said. "I think that's the main issue we need to address." But Keefer also noted the differences in OHV use al- lowed on the Modoc National Forest when compared to the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta- Trinity national forests. According to information delivered to the board, the Modoc National Forest allowed mixed vehicle use on 513 miles of road -- 89.2 HAIR CAR00 X ad more X I # I i! ...............................

St, Quincy Wed 10 March 2010 BREAK FREE - WE CAN HELP This year's theme has been developed with smoker them- selves. They told us that they are experiencing uncomfortable internal conflict about smoking .. internal conflict worsened by sense of addiction, powerlessness and feeling trapped. It's not surprising therefore that most smokers want to quit, escape the chains of addiction, and No Smoking Day is here to make sure they stand the best possible chance of success. So that's why this year's theme with it's striking and symbolic image of arms breaking free from a chain of cigarettes, and strap line - Break free, we can help, resonated so much with the smoker focus groups we talked to. The theme is empowering, positive, supportive. No Smoking Day 2009 saw 1 in 10 smokers kick the habit, that's an impressive 900,000 people! And we're expecting even more to take part on 10 March 2010. 0800169 0169 This message is brought to you by these local businesses: SCOTT  TANNER BUSINESS EQUIPMENT (888) 447-2679 (530) 283-1688 IC N.

The Lassen National Forest allowed mixed vehicle use on only 9.3 miles of road -- 1.3 percent -- within its boundaries. Keefer also noted there were 504 "dispersed recre- ation sites with motor vehi- cle access" in the Lassen National Forest prior to the adoption of the new rules when the number plummets to 65. Keefer said the new rules would restrict "those hunters and fishers who have been camping in their favorite spots for many years." Keefer added he saw "another red flag." While the Lassen National Forest identified only 504 such campsites, the Modoc National Forest found 1,168, and the Shasta-Trinity Na- tional Forest identified 1,252. "Did the Lassen really in- ventory all their dispersed recreation sites?" Keefer asked. "That could be an issue there. What Lassen did, out of 504 sites, they're only approving 65." "National forests are part of the local fabric," the super- visors' letter read. "Their roads and motorized trails are used for recreation and access to the forest's re- sources. These pursuits gen- erate revenue for our rural communities. Such opportu- nities need to be maintained by all users, including OHV enthusiasts. This goal should be embraced by all, including the Forest Service. We should work together as neighbors to further community needs. Towards this end, we are re- questing the Forest Service to revisit the proposed Travel Management planning efforts of the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta-Trinity national forests." The letter also criticized the process used by the Forest Service. "The planning process needs to be open, transparent and collaborative, especially when prominent public resources are involved," the supervisors' letter reads. "Unfortunately, the Lassen, Plumas and Shasta-Trinity national forests have only gone through the motions." The supervisors' letter praised the Modoc National Forest for striking a balance between public access and environmental stewardship. Its plan "was developed through extensive public in- volvement and coordination with local agencies," the supervisors wrote. "Our local forests need to embrace that model." 5 Value Menu is Back! 1 Topping Mini Pizza $ 2 Topping Individual Calzone $ Any Dell Sandwich $ 4 Evening Specials Too! -;;--,,:<, .......................................
