Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, April 22, 2015 1513 i Theatre hosts concert to highlight young musicians Plumas Arts said it is pleased to once again showcase the talents of Plumas County's young musicians at the annual Jazz Night Concert at the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday, April 22, with a 7 p.m. start time. The evening's entertainment features the Chester, Greenville and Quincy High School jazz bands along with the Chester High School vocal choir and offers an inspiring presentation of the creative work of local kids. Plumas County music education programs span grades four to 12, and take students from the rudimentary steps in learning an instrument through eight years of developing proficiency. That skill-building process, and the hard work of dedicated music instructors, is what will be celebrated at the Jazz Night Concert. Admission donations will be accepted at the door. Funds .will help support the efforts of district music teachers. Plumas Arts also encourages community members to advocate for strong arts and music programs in the county's schools.

CORRECTION A quote attributed to Plumas Crisis and Intervention Resource Center Executive Director Johanna Downey was incomplete in last week's paper. Inthe story titled "Mental health training to be held in more communities" on page 5B, the full comment from Downey should have read, "The suicide rate from 2008 to 2010 in the North State Region is 20 per 100,000. If we were to expand Plumas County's population to 100,000, that ratio would be 65 to 100,000." Feather Publishing regrets the omission. AN ALPINE RIDE OF MANY STOPS We stopped at Innsbruck, Melk and Kufstein, too, When going through the Alps of Austria The spring of '60 when the skies were blue Without a cloud nor misty nebuX The town of Innsbruck has a scenic charm So nestled in the midst of craggy tors Which seem to guard its folks from outside harm Where fountains spout in streets in front of stores. In Melk, the abbey's famous for its art Where monks illuminated holy books With skillful hand and patient, pious heart Displayed in cases and surrounding nooks. In Kufstein, gliders soared above the fields, And T-bars took us up above the trees. A stream ran by our room with tasty yields, And all around stretched out the grassy leas. Idyllic are the Alps in spring and summer times And so belie the birth of him of heinous crimes.
