It seems that the California draught now can be blamed on causing a number of things and now earthquakes, according to some news reporter in Reno after a M 3.5 earthquake struck the Incline area on Tues- day, April 7. According to the article, the draw down of the water table in the Sacra- mento Valley will cause earthquakes, and apparently as far away as the Sierra and as deep as this earthquake - some 8 miles be- low the surface. Really? It is troubling when news reporters play scientists and more troubling when they come up with non- sense like this. Sure, earthquakes have oc- curred by both drawing down of the water table and injection of water into rocks. 0il fracking is a prime example of injection causing earthquakes, but it is suppose to do that. It causes fractures to open and oil to flow. Dehydration of the ground can cause settlement of the near-surface lay- ers that can locally cause micro-seismic events. However, not in this cause. Incline is a known area of seismic activity and this earthquake was caused by tectonic forces and not by the California draught. Really!! nts annou Mou John $teffani Plumas-Sierra County Fair ntains The Plumas-Sierra County Fair Foundation and organizers of the 2015 Sweetheart of the Mountains competition are pleased with the caliber of the contestants who will be competing for this year's title. This year's event will go back to the tradition of having the competition at the County Picnic, which will be June 6. It will be held in Serpilio Hall at 6 p.m. and will once again feature these young ladies' talents and poise. The evening will also showcase performances from the Feather River College Star Follies and routines from Rhythm and Grace Dance Studio. Admission is $5 at the door. Each girl will be scored in three categories: talent, poise and fundraising. Talents range from singing to trick roping and always delight the audience. Each girl will be asked aquestion drawn randomly and will be judged on her response. Finally, the contestants have already begun fundraising that includes websites, giveaways and sponsorships. Half of the funds raised goes to the PSCF Foundation, which uses the money to improve and enhance the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. The other half is held for each girl to be used in her education. Last year's competition raised thousands of dollars for the foundation, which has several projects in the works at the fairgrounds. All the contestants that graduated from high school have used their funds to move further along with their education. Each category is scored by a panel of judges with the high-point winner receiving the title of 2015 Sweetheart of the Mountains and a $1,000 scholarship. The first runner up receives a $500 scholarship. Those awards are in addition to the funds they raised on their own. The competition is open to any girl who lives in Plumas or Sierra County. To be eligible,' a girl must be a junior or senior in the school year following the 2015 fair in August or have graduated from high school in the spring of the year the fair is held. Meet this year's candidates: Breeann Taylor-Mays is a 17-year-old senior at Quincy Junior-Senior High School and has a big interest in performing arts.

She is a 16-year-old junior at North Tahoe High School. She is a longtime member of 4-H, receiving a blue ribbon at State Presentation Day.

She plans on attending an out-of-state four-year college and studying science and history. Kaitlyn Wilson is a veteran of the Sweetheart competition, as she was a contestant last year. She is a senior at Loyalton High School with outdoor interests like horseback riding, fishing, hunting and camping.
