DR_6406_815 Water bottle filling station installed at FRC Laura Beaton Staff Writer If you've ever tried to fill up your water bottle at a water fountain or sink, you know that it is a long and often impossible process. Now, however, a brand new eco-friendly bottle-filling hydration station is on campus at Feather River College to make the task easier and faster. The hydration station was made possible by efforts of the Student Environmental Association and its advisor, Darla DeRuiter, director of the environmental studies program. Assisted by several other groups on campus, SEA took the lead and raised funds to purchase and install the combination water bottle refilling and drinking fountain stations. The first station was installed the last week of March in the Science Building and is dispensing pure, filtered water. According to DeRuiter, a second hydration station will be installed in the foyer of the Gallery, the college's largest classroom, and a third station will be installed at Feather River Fitness Center. The academic and classified senates and FRC facilities department contributed funds toward the hydration station project. The stations allow consumers to save money by not purchasing bottled water, create a healthier environment by reducing the number of plastic bottles being purchased and save the energy used to manufacture disposable bottles. A total of $3,600 was raised to purchase and install the coolers, which have a replaceable filter that the facilities department will maintain. You can check out the hydration station on campus during the upcoming Earth Days events scheduled during the week of April 21.

Central Ave., Quincy 283-2110 Paid political advertisement JEF ENGEL SUPERVISOR, DISTRICT 5 The Future of Plumas County As I look back on my past living, working, raising my family and loving it here in Plumas County, I have been so blessed and fortunate to be able to call this area my home. Now, with my children grown, I see them and their friends wanting to live in Plumas County and trying to provide for their families. My focus now is their future and how I can help make a better community of growth and productivity for all our families. I can't help thinking that one of the most important things needed in Plumas County is a strong sustainable economy. As a parent, grandparent and a member of our community, I feel that having a strong sustainable economy is vital. I believe we should strive for a community; a county that our young people can eagerly and proudly be a part of; a county that wants to promote and encourage our young people and their families to find good skilled, well-paying, long-term jobs. Our young people are willing and wanting to invest in their hometown, some may choose self-employed businesses, others may take over the running of their own family businesses, or learning a trade from those who have held jobs for many years and are preparing to retire. We want and need our young people to raise their families here so they can spend their lifetimes here in the beauty and safety of our communities. We are a small hometown community that should offer others the opportunities that were offered to us. As John F. Kennedy stated many years ago, =Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." We need to be here to help our young people, our elderly people and our veterans. We need to ask, "What can we do for others?" I welcome, and would appreciate, any suggestions you may have that we can do together in District 5 and within Plumas County, to help make this a community so that all of our families have the opportunity to live here, work here, raise families here and love it here! "I live here, I've raised my family here, I work here, I love it here..." "We would greatly appreciate your time, helping hands & voice donations." We are trying to Home Grow our campaign. Our committee to elect Jeff Engel consists of me, my wife Jennifer & our family." (530) 836-0257 Paid for by the committee to elect Jeff Engel
