Tuesday, April 22 Sunrise 6:1g-Sunset 7:52 " ~ "G~ This earthquake report was prepared on April 13 and since March 10 (33 days), the Earth has been on a literal seismic rampage, producing 13 earthquakes reg- istering M 6.5 or stronger, including four M 7s and one in the M 8 range. The larg- est earthquake measured M 8.2 and oc- curred off the coast of northern Chile on April 1. It was followed by numerous aftershocks including quakes of M 7.7, M 7.1, M 6.9 and M 6.5. More recently and on April 12, was an earthquake register- ing M 7.7 in the Solomon Islands of Indo- nesia. It was followed by a M 7.4 after- shock 16 hours later. More locally and on March 10, a M 6.8 quake triggered off the coast of Eureka, California. With the pro- longed seismic quiescence in California and Nevada for the past 15 years, it may seem now to be a good time to check on those preparedness supplies. Regional earthquake activity jumped again, nearly doubling and hitting the mid 20 quake-per-week level. Driving the action were 14 aftershocks in the Canyon- dam aftershock zone including four M 2s. rums Debra Moore Staff Writer There are three announced opportunities to hear from the candidates for District 5 county supervisor, as well as meet the other county officials who are unopposed in the June 3 election. The League of Women Voters will host the first candidate night Thursday, April 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the Graeagle Fire Hall. League President Lee Anne Schramel described the event format. Unchallenged incumbents for the offices of sheriff, district attorney, treasurer, auditor and county clerk, as well as District 3 supervisor, will be given the opportunity to speak for three minutes at the beginning of the forum and encouraged to stay after the meeting to talk with constituents. The three candidates for District 5 supervisor -- Jeff Engel, Jim Judd and Jon Kennedy -- will follow at roughly 7 p.m. Each will be given two minutes for an opening statement and two minutes for a closing statement. Questions will be solicited from the audience in written format. They will be screened and combined with similar questions. Candidates will be allowed Candidate forums Following are the currently scheduled candidate forums: Hosted by League of Women Voters Thursday, April 24, 6:30 p.m. Graeagle Fire Hall Wednesday, May 7, 6:30 p.m. Quincy library meeting room Hosted by Plumas County Special Districts Association Wednesday, May 7, 12:15 p.m. Quincy library meeting room one minute to answer the questions, with an opportunity to rebut. The League will hold a second forum with the same format Wednesday, May 7, at 6:30 p.m. in the Quincy library meeting room. Earlier on May 7, the Plumas County Special Districts Association is holding a candidate forum at 12:15 p.m., also in the library meeting room. The public is invited to attend. Vote-by-mail ballots are scheduled to be sent out May 5. Election Day is June 3. Partnership seeks to improve health of county residents Debra Moore Staff Writer dmoore@plurnasnews.corn Public Health Director Mimi Hall met some skepticism when she first approached the Board of Supervisors with the 20,000 Lives Living Well campaign. But that was then and this isnow,, "I was sort of skeptical at first," said Supervisor Lori Simpson. "But I like the approach of what we can do to improve people's lives." Hall presented an update on the campaign's progress to the supervisors April 1. The campaign is named in recognition of the 20,000 residents of the county and is the implementation of the 2013 - 15 Community Health Improvement Plan. "We envision a place where everyone has access to health care and preventative services, where we're celebrated for embracing healthy lifestyles and where our communities and neighborhoods are strong and vibrant," Hall wrote in a kick-off letter. PUBLIC NOTICE Inspection project Rumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative will be conducting inspections of its facilities throughout 2014. Specific vegetation man- agement projects planned within the tim- bered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Calpine. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of outages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather conditions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proximity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment, Our vegetation management is conducted following best management prac- tices defined in ANSI AJ00 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI AJ00 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric ser- vice. We will be inspecting electrical equip- ment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require access to all of its facilities including meters, PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them.

She said the campaign will allow local hospitals to fully address the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. While the county's public health department is spearheading the effort, many organizations are meeting regularly to make it a reality. Their progress can be followed in weekly newsletters sent out by the health department, and soon on a new website. To get on the mailing list, call 283-6337. Mini grants Individuals, community groups, nonprofits, for-profits, agencies, businesses, faith groups and other entities interested in promoting public health can apply for mini grants of up to $500. Public health has $15,000 to award through June 30. A new mini grant cycle will begin July 1. There is no fLxed deadline to apply and awards will be given monthly. For more details call 283-6337.
