Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 12, 2014 11A Indian Valley starts first Pheasants Forever chapter in county Samantha P. Hawthorne Staff Writer shawthorne@plumasnews.com A group of Indian Valley residents are in the process of establishing a Pheasants Forever chapter in Plumas County: As its first order of business, Indian Valley Pheasants Forever Chapter 0920 is hosting a dinner April 5 to help raise money for club activities. The dinner starts at 5 p.m. in the Greenville Town Hall and is open to everyone in Plumas County. Seating is limited, however, and only 160 tickets will be sold. Tickets will not be available at the door and should be purchased before April 1 by contacting either Beverly Hardesty at 394-7276 or Karen VanZandt at 284-1536. Tickets cost $80 per couple, $50 per person or $15 for each "ringneck" between the ages of 0 and 16. In addition to dinner, tickets include chapter membership for one person. Couple tickets are only eligible for one membership. Additional memberships can be purchased for $35 per adult and $15 per child. Membership includes a quarterly subscription to the magazine "Upland Tales," a membership card and a "personal invitation to get involved in the community." As one of its founding members, Hardesty sai d one of the great things about the organization is that 100 percent of the net proceeds stay within the county. "Every dollar we raise through our fundraising efforts stays right here in Plumas County and goes back into our local businesses, events, schools and habitat projects," she said. The group focuses on supporting local youths and getting them outdoors. Hardesty said the Pheasants Forever motto is "no child left indoors" and by establishing a chapter within Plumas County, she and other members hope to achieve just that within the local vicinity. Since the group is in its first year, organizers are only planning to sponsor two pheasant hunts: one for the Lake Almanor Basin/Indian Valley area and one for the Quincy/Portola area. As the club grows, more events will be offered. Jim Battagin reveals his tendency toward "visions of grandeur" in this photo taken by his brother, "Big Foot" (not shown since his feet are too big for the photo). The two were on a recent trip to Ubehebe Crater in Death Valley National Park.

Rodeo Beach is unique among California beaches in that it is largely made up of coarse, pebbly chert grains, both red and green in color.
