"This school is one of the best things I've had in my life," Shea said. "Every organization has cycles, and in a sense I amglad for this new chapter because it will help grow and gather the school's most precious and vital resource -- parents who are .interested and actively involved in their children's education." Plumas Christian held a special gathering Wednesday morning to discuss the decision with students. Through tears, senior BreghAnne Turner encouraged her younger Dahle visits Quincy Assemblyman seeks common ground as he did in QLG Debra Moore Staff Writer Speaking in the Quincy library meeting room, state Assemblyman Brian DaMe told the audience that the setting had helped shape his approach to government. "We should look for opportunities to work together where we can," DaMe said. "I learned that right here in this building with the Quincy Library Group." Dahle told the two dozen citizens gathered for his townhall meeting March 6 that he seeks common ground in the Assembly. "I will run bills that I think can be signed into law," he said. "It's reaching across the aisle and trying to get things done," He thinks the opportunities will arise more often because of the open primary system. He explained that in a closed primary, a Republican had to "out-right" the other candidate and a Democrat had to "out-left" his opponent, which resulted in "extremes in the Assembly and the Senate." And because of the way term limits worked, the average assemblyman had a " tenure of just 3.6 years, not long enough to really know the job. Now, an assemblyman can serve 12 years, and because the primary system is open, more moderate voters are entering office. Discussing the 41 freshmen members of the Assembly, DaMe said, "We talk differently." He estimates that it will take just two more election cycles for the dynamic of the Assembly to change. Plumas County Supervisor Jan Kennedy, who was in the audience, applauded DaMe's approach to the job. "I really appreciate what you do and how you do it," Kennedy said. "You don't see 'D' and 'R' (referring to Democrat and Republican)." State of Jefferson Attorney Robert Zernich a.sked DaMe about his sentiments regarding the state of Jefferson, and whether he supported the effort to form another state. "No," Dahle said and went on to explain why it would be difficult for northern counties to survive as an independent state, largely because so much of the land mass is federally owned. "I like to focus on things that I can accomplish," he said. GMOs Resident Pat Terhune asked DaMe for his opinion on genetically modified organisms." "I'm a seed farmer," DaMe said. "GMO has a place: We won't feed the world without GMOs." For DaMe, proper labeling of products is what needs to be discussed. SPI settlement Quincy Library Group member John Sheehan asked DaMe about his reaction to the "hand slap" that the state attorney general's office and department of forestry received for falsifying information in the lawsuit against Sierra Pacific Industries. "I'm ashamed that people in the public sector knowingly did that," DaMe said. "I think we should take a firm stand and fire them." CalFire fee In response to a question about the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association lawsuit against the CalFire fee, DaMe said he thinks that it will succeed. He also introduced a bill that would exempt people m Dinner Doctor Care and Treatment of Varicose Veins Wednesday, March 26 Doors open 6 p.m. Dinner served 6:30 p.m. St. Johns Parish Hall 162 Lawrence St., Quincy Enjoy a healthy dinner and presentation on the care and treatment of varicose veins by general and vascular surgeon Dr. Lawrence Milne.

Each upper-grader is paired with one or two lower:graders through a "little-buddy" program that creates close-knit inter-grade relationships and positive role-modeling for the elementary school. One parent said her daughter cried through most of the night knowing her big buddy will not be at school next year. Plumas Christian School first opened its doors to elementary students in 1986, growing the upper grades one year at a time as students .graduated from elementary school. Brian Dahle stands in front of the Quincy library March 6. A former member of the Quincy Library Group, Dahle said he based his leadership style of finding common ground on what he learned as part of the QLG. Dahle was in Quincy to conduct a townhall meeting. Photo submitted whose homes were burned in a fire from having to pay the tax. About schoolchildren Plumas Unified School District Superintendent Micheline Miglis delivered an impassioned plea for relief from being held to the same standards as large school districts without being given adequate resources. Dahle said he understood the plight of small school districts, noting that his wife, Megan, is the president of the school board in his hometown of Bieber. i, "I will always be engaged in that fight," he said. "I have three kids." "I have 1,700," Micheline responded. Other issues DaMealso addressed questions pertaining to fracking, groundwater quality, diesel truck requirements and good forestry. "I'm an environmentalist; I'm a good steward of the land," Dahle said, and became a little emotional as he talked about his desire to preserve his land for his childrefi. DaMe brings his colleagues to his district to educate them about rural northern California. "Some of them have never been north of Sacramento," he said. He referenced one Southern California assemblyman who, when asked where his water came from, responded "from the tap." "I intend to show him where his water comes from," DaMe said. His missioq ,,,.,.., ....  "I took arp,lt to go to, Sacramento and I'm away from my wife and kids," DaMe said. After a year in office, he and his wife discussed whether he should run again. (DaMe is up for election this year.) They decided that he would because they believe that he can make a difference. "It's one year in and the kids have adjusted well," he said.
