Adding to the activity this week were four more events, including a M 7.2 near Acapulco, Mexico and a M 7.5 in the Solomon Islands, Indonesia. This level of activity is uncommon and is ap- proaching one of the highest seismic periods on more than 20 years. Seismol- ogists know that April is one of the peak seismic months of the year for large earthquake activity and it appears that April 2014 will continue that seismic trend. Up one week, down the next. Regional earthquake declined again, falling by more than half and its lowest level in weeks. The intensity of seismicity re- mained about the same, producing four quakes in the M Z range. Two quakes measuring M 2.9 and M 2.2 were recorded at the CA-NV border, near the Lassen-Modoc County line. h M 25 at Lake Almanor was felt, as was a M 2.7 north of Redding at Lake Shasta. Plumas-Sierra County Fair wants exhibit entries John Steffanic Plumas-Sierra County Fair Manager A county fair is not about corn dogs, a carnival or jugglers. It exists because people want to show what they have made, raised or grown. That is what brought people together from miles around, once a year, all around the world, for decades. Plumas and Sierra counties are no different. Do they raise better sheep in Indian Valley or Sierra Valley? Are the quilts prettier from Lake Almanor or American Valley? Who makes the best apple jelly? All that is settled at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair every year beginning the second Wednesday in August. This year's fair runs Aug. 13 - 17. The first step in declaring bragging rights is getting the annual Exhibit Guide. Some people still call it the Premium Book. This is where all the categories of competition are listed. The book has sections for the Art Barn, floriculture/horticulture, home arts, livestock and horse show. PUBLIC NOTICE Inspection project Plumas-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. It 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- ticos defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are pert 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 personnet require access to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them. Published FRB, PR Feb. 26, March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, May 7, 14, 20141 In each section is a list of divisions. For instance, in the Art Barn, you will find divisions for amateur black-and-white photography and senior high school paintings. Beneath each division are classes, which break down the division further. You will find classes like landscape, selfies and human interest under the amateur black-and-white division. There are guidelines and rules for each section that include deadlines, number of entries allowed in each class and how much it costs to enter. Each class awards ribbons and usually a cash premium for the top three winners. At the back of the guide are entry forms for each section. It includes your contact information and has a place for you to write down' the division and class for each of your entries. Mail or bring those entry forms to the fair office by July 18 with your entry fees and you are entered into the fair! Remember, you don't have to bring your actual entry by July 18, just the entry form. You would bring your jams, quilts or photos in the days before the fair. In the case of vegetables or flowers, you sometimes bring those in during the fair. It's all in the exhibit guide. We sometimes spend our lives regretting not doing one thing or another. Entering something in the fair is just too fun and easy to not do it. It is guaranteed; you will remember winning a ribbon at : the county fair for the rest of : your life. Take a few minutes and look i through the exhibit guide to see if there is anything that piques your interest. Can you gift-wrap a box? Enter that. Do you have a recipe for bread that your grandma gave you? Bring it on down. How about that collection of unusual rocks youhaye accumulated? Everyone who visits the fair would love to see it. The more entries the fair has, the healthier the fair is. Be a part of that. The exhibit guide is available on the fair website,, and is broken down bz section for those of you who still have a dial-up connection. You can pick up hard copies at local libraries, Plumas Bank branches and wherever good people gather. You can also stop by the fair office and get one there. Call 283-6272 for more info.
