6A Wednesday, April 9, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Workday planned at fairgrounds John Steffanic Special to Feather Publishing Sometimes, epic events cannot be replicated. There was no sequel to the movie "Ben-Hur." There's really no good reason to bring back the mullet. There is, however, one event that should, and will, be brought back: the Mother of All Workdays II at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. The original event held last spring brought together hundreds of volunteers who invested hundreds of hours of work. They painted, raked, swept, repaired and then ate lunch. Why not do it again? Saturday, April 26, will see the return of those who value the fairgrounds in Quincy and are willing to show their feelings by helping to make the grounds look great. The list of tasks is long, so the more the merrier. Horse stalls need painting, livestock barns need cleaning and repairing and gopher mounds need to be knocked down. Of course, there are always areas to be swept, windows to be cleaned and rocks to be picked up. Flower beds need to be weeded and walls scrubbed. Plus, if anyone in the community has a particular skill he or she think the fairgrounds could use, please call the office at 283-6272. There is always a need for electricians, landscapers and locksmiths. If you, your family, or your organization wants to come spend a morning helping out the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, call the office and let fair manager John Steffanic tell you what kind of tasks need to be assigned. If You want to receive a coveted Mother of All Workdays II commemorative T-shirt, you must call ahead and let the fair know you are coming. Be sure to tell them what size shirt you need. Volunteers are asked to check in between 8 and 9 a.m. Work proceeds until noon or 12:30 p.m., when everyone sits down and enjoys a delicious barbecue lunch.

Committee to discuss L-FCo 1 es Debra Moore '3A/e're Staff Writer clmoore@plumasnews.corn Portola Mayor Phil Oels and Councilman Bill Powers visited the Board of Supervisors on April 1 to discuss an equitable way to split LAFCo fees. Currently the city and county split the fees equally -- each paying $51,000-- which has some Eastern Plumas County residents calling foul. "This has been an ongoing discussion for some time now," said Supervisor Terry Swofford, who represents Portola and the far eastern portion of the county. "A member from my district brought it up and I tend to agree with him." Swofford said he thought the fees should be split between the city, county and special districts, but since the . slecial districts rejeCted that idea, he proposed that the county pay two-thirds and the city pay one-third. LAFCo, the Local Agency Formation Commission, is responsible for reviewing and approving proposed 10 percent of the population and we're picking up 50 percent of the bill." Phil Oels Mayor of Portola jurisdictional boundary changes, including annexations and detachments, and formations of cities and special districts. Supervisor Sherrie Thrall asked to hear from the city representatives in the audience. "We're looking for a means of negotiating an inequity," Mayor Oels said. "We're 10 percent of the population and we're picking up 50 percent of the bill." "This is a typical state mandate where one shoe fits all," Swofford said. In counties where there are. multiple cities, the division of fees is more equitable. Councilman Bill Powers said there are different approaches to take and thought it might be prudent to contact state legislators. Chairman Jon Kennedy Jim Judd 530-836- 7311 Paid political advertisement Fresh Effective Leadership Expand Economic Opportunity I.tegrity & Accountability "Meet & Greet" Jim at Graeagle Restaurant Friday, April 11th 5-7 pm. Hear Jim on KNLF radio 95.9 FM "That's What You Think" Wednesday, April 16 9 - 11am Paid for by the Commitee to Elect Jim Judd said he didn't know what the answer was, but that it was important to remember that it's the citizens of the entire county who reap the benefits. "I don't like the per capita approach," he said. He used Greenville High School as an example of an entity that, because of its small population, would be closed if its existence weren't subsidized by the rest of the school district. While Kennedy didn't support dividing it strictly per capita, 10 percent for the city and 90 percent for the county, he thought there could be another solution. "I appreciate the city of Portola taking a more logical approach than the advocate," Kennedy said referring to an Eastern Plumas resident who initiated the issue. It was decided that Swofford and Kennedy would represent the county in working with the city representatives.
