6A Wednesday, April 23, 2014 I-eather River Bulletin Sea i for general manager appro/ec Laura Beaton Staff Writer After a lengthy discussion during a special meeting last ' Wednesday, April 16, the East Quincy Services District board approved a subcommittee's recommendation and voted to pursue hiring a general manager. Although the district is in compliance with all licensing requirements necessary to operate safely and serve its customers, the board agreed with the committee's conclusion that, among other benefits, the district would gain from having a licensed general manager who could share field work and on-call pager duties. Next steps include reviewing and approving a revised general manager job description and advertising for applicants. Also on the agenda was a resolution to annex Plumas Rural Services' property at 711 E. Main St. into its district. At a special meeting April 14, the board of Quincy Community Services District approved a resolution to detach the same property from within its district, effectively "correcting a long-standing out:of-service area situation." EQSD approved the resolution to annex the property, on which PRS plans to build. The next regular board meeting is scheduled for May CORRECTION In a story related to East Quincy Services District, we should have said that a board subcommittee reported that operating licenses should be held by the person at the top of the organization chart (general manager).. Also, John Kolb is working for Plumas County Community Development Commission as the project coordinator for the PRS project. Feather Publishing regrets the errors. 13.

Times have changed Back when it was a pageant, judging included criteria of the era like body weight and measurements. The newer version of the Sweetheart of the Mountains eliminates the title pageant, as well as body considerations. The fair is more interested in how a young lady presents herself, how she communicates and how committed she is to her community. Many longtime residents who know former Sweethearts would tell you all those attributes have existed in all the girls from the beginning. How a teenage girl looks in a swimsuit has nothing to do with how good a representative of our area she is. The 2014 edition of the Sweetheart of the Mountains Scholarship Competition will reach its conclusion on the opening night of the fair. One young girl will be crowned Sweetheart on Wednesday, Aug. 13, in the grandstands of the fairgrounds. Competition starts May 1 The competition will begin May 1, when candidates may begin their efforts with community appearances, fundraising events and endless rehearsals. A girl who is a resident of Plumas or Sierra County, who will be entering her junior or senior year in the semester following the August fair, or who has just graduated in the spring of the year the fair is held, is eligible to compete. Candidates must complete an application, available at each high school, charter school or private school. Applications are also available online at Complete rules are available for download, The deadline for 1953 Sweetheart of the Mountains Terry Means shows off her balance on a log raft in the old millpond, where Safeway now stands. Photo submitted applying is Friday, April 25. Completed applications are to be mailed to the address listed on the form. Three competitive categories Ultimately, candidates will be judged in three areas: poise, talent and community service/fundraising. The night of the competition, entrants will have an opportunity to perform any sort talent that "entertains an audience." The evening will also have the contestants answer random questions to gauge how quickly they can think and how clearly they can communicate. Both of these segments will be judged by a panel of judges representing all areas of both counties. The final phase of competition is community service/fundraising. This process will begin the minute a girl announces her candidacy. Contestants are required to attend at least two events in their community as well as the Plumas County Picnic on June 7 at the fairgrounds. The purpose of these appearances is to represent and promote the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. They will also be judged on the amount of money they raise for the fair and its new nonprofit, the PSCF Foundation. Girls can have raffles, car washes, performances and/or seek donors. An interesting aspect of the fundraising is that each girl will be able to use 50 percent of what she raises for her future education. The PSCF Foundation will hold the funds for two years, or longer in some cases, to help Sweetheart contestants pay tuition, buy books and pay for room, board or anything that can help them move forward with an education or career. The other 50 percent will be used to fund improvements at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. Grandstand appearance The show will be held the opening night of the fair and will feature songs and dances by local performers. Past Sweethearts will be on hand to lend elegance to the evening, which will be hosted by former local radio personalities Steve Rusk and John steffanic. Admission to the event is $5, but special discount packages will be available that include fair admission and all grandstand events.
