NCDC arid UNR 3/27 "ml%J 411 There is this saying that there are two things you can guarantee in life, death and taxes. You may want to add one more item to that list: earthquakes. It may seem that way up here in Northeast California that we would be immune to earthquakes. But not so. lhis area has its fair share of seismic events. While most of them are small, every now and again we get a siz- able jolt, an earthquake swarm, or just one that creeps up and scares the dickens out of us. Like this week, most of them range between M 1 and M 2. A couple weeks ago we have one in the mid M 3s and two years ago we had a moderately strong M 5.7 quake that rocked the Lake Almanor- Greenville area, causing mil- lions of dollars in damage, but fortunate- ly no serious injuries. Geologists will tell you there are faults that course through our counties capable of creating earth- quakes in the mid M 7s. Recent informa- tion says that these faults may be capa- ble of even larger earthquakes. Now while we ponder that lovely thought, re- member we also have v Greg Willis brings 20-plus years of performing and songwriting to the Words & Music stage in Quincy tomorrow. Photo courtesy Plumas Arts Music educator to play Quincy Words & Music Quincy Words & Music, scheduled for Thursday, April 9, at Patti's Thunder Caf starting at 7 p.m., will bring noted local guitarist and music educator Greg Willis to the stage. As a finger-style and slide guitar player, Greg Willis combines blues, ragtime and bluegrass techniques to get his own unique and highly energetic sound. He has performed at concerts and festivals, and on local ,radio and television programs in California, Oregon and Nevada. Willis said he started as a teenager, learning folk songs from his father, and that his passion for finger-style ragtime and blues was sparked by the family record collection. He began performing publicly in 1991 after being taken under the wing of Mendocino bluesman Rick Blaufeld. After 20 years of performing and songwriting, Willis entered the music program at Humboldt State University. In 2014 he graduated with a BA in music with an emphasis in composition. He now teaches music in Quincy with Johny McDonald at Plumas Charter School, in the community ed program at Feather River College and through private lessons. Scoring nature documentaries for the video production organization Wild Lens has provided a recent burst of music-writing creativity, said Willis. Several of these new pieces will be performed at the April 9 Words & Music. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:15. An open mic sign-up is available to all interested parties and performances begin at 8. Words and Music is sponsored by Plumas Arts and there is a $3 entry charge at the door. Beverages are available for purchase. Words & Music is a program of Plumas Arts, featuring acoustic performances of music and the spoken Word. For more information about this or other programs sponsored by Plumas Arts, call 283-3402, visit or stop by the Plumas Arts Gallery located at 525 Main St. in Quincy. Office hours are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Former Quincy High principal seeks to inspire students with past grads Debra Moore Staff Writer Former Quincy High School Principal Tim Gallagher wants to inspire students and he thinks stories of past graduates' success will help. "I want to let the kids see what others have done," Gallagher said. "That's what started this; a lot of kids have done well." Gallagher envisions bulletin boards on the Quincy High campus -- at least two, but maybe more. Each would feature a dozen or so alumni, with their class photo, a brief summation of their school activities and what they are doing now. The photosand bios would rotate through the school year and feature graduates from recent years as well as those who have long been retired. There are still a lot of details to be determined and Gallagher is forming a committee to get the project underway. "I want people to help," he said. "I'm looking for suggestions and ideas on how to make this work the best." Those interested are encouraged to contact Gallagher via an email established just for this purpose: The number signifies the year that Gallagher began teaching at Quincy High. During his years at the high school he watched students go on to have successful careers in law enforcement, law, medicine, business and various trades, and he thinks seeing their faces and their stories will present current students with options that they may not have considered. Details on how the public can submit alumni names and information will be provided at a later date. Gallagher hopes the project will get underway this summer with the bulletin boards ready for the first day of the new school year. For now, anyone intereste 4 in serving on the committee is invited to contact Gallagher. 1
