12A Wednesday, April 28, 2010 Feather River Bulletin FRC, from page 1A issue for us now," said Taylor. It also ensures compliance with other legal and regulato- ry standards, including Americans with Disabilities Act and Office of Civil Rights, and will help determine AB 540 eligibility. The legislation allows an immigrant student who has gone through the school system in California to regis- ter as a resident and pay in-state fees, "even if they're undocumented, technically." The law is "a fairly com- plex'thing to implement," Taylor explained,and CC- CApply has all of the criteria built into the application so that it's easy for FRC's Admissions and Records department to make a deter- mination. As soon as the admission application has been pro- cessed, FRC can provide the new student with registra- tion, orientation and other information seamlessly. Fur, ther, the system provides links to applications for financial aid. There are add-ons available for additional fees. One that the college will probably pur- chase in the future is the Board of Governors Fee Waiver Application, which determines dependency sta- tus and eligibility based on criteria such as family income or one of the special status designations. Because the college has re- ceived a $15,000 grant, imple- mentation and product costs for CCCApply will be cov- ered. In addition, first year support fees will total $914.79. After that, support fees will total $7,464.60 per year. The benefits of eTran- script, according to Taylor, include "speed of electronic transcript exchange, ease of transaction tracking and reporting, data transfer encryption, security of institution-to-institution ex- change, student convenience, reduced college workload and expenses [and] standardized transcript views and data formats." The system allows for the transfer of student tran- scripts between all of the state's community colleges, state universities, University of California campuses, pri- vate colleges and, soon, to and from the state's high schools. Costs include a one-time in- stallation fee of $5,300. The price of operation and main- tenance, prorated for the April 1 - June 30, 2010 period, is $861.25. The ongoing cost will be $3,656.25 per year. A majority of board mem- bers agreed with chairman Bill Elliot that the two appli- cations were a good long- term investment for a rather small amount of money. Director Leah West, how- ever, who had asked a number of pointed questions during the discussion, main- tained that a new and ongoing purchase of this na- ture didn't make sense when FRC was facing a budget shortfall of more than $400,000. "I'm just thinking dollars. I'm just being conservative. I don't think now's the time to buy anything." The board voted four to one to proceed with both software applications.

For the time being, the clubhouse will only have a grill to serve golfers; Schoff plans to re-open the restau- rant when the economy indi- cates a return to better times. There are already golf experts at the Nakoma, sizing up the task and readying the greens. The challenging course originally was named the Dragon, but plans are to lose the name and some of its more daunting aspects. These changes in the course will not occur until next year. Roy Tremoureux, the new general manager for Nakoma, said, "It will be a great day in the sun when homeowners, tourists and the residents of the area can enjoy a new and milder course." Dan and Leah West are acting in an advisory capacity at the Nakoma golf course and have contracted with Schomac to manage the Feather River Inn golf course this summer. Schomac is enthusiastic about its new venture. David Beveridge, vice presidenL said, "My charge will be to bring Gold Mountain and the Nakoma Golf Resort back to where it can once again shine as a beacon in Plumas County." Schomac pointed out "Nakoma:' ia Chippewa word meaning, "I do as I promise." Perhaps now, Nakoma at Gold Mountain can fulfill its promise. Reno man drowns Joshua Sebold Staff Writer A 27-year-old Reno, Nev., resident, identified to" KOLO-TV as Derek Cahoon, drowned in the Indian Falls area Sunday, April 18. The Plumas County Sheriff's Office reported the young man was swept down- stream while swimming and couldn't be located by friends accompanying him. A PCSO press release indicated Plumas County Sheriff's Search and Rescue, a CHP helicopter, Indian Valley and Crescent Mills fire departments, the U.S. Forest Service and South Lassen EMS participated in searches Sunday and Monday. The release added a kayaker located a body Monday near the "Shoo-Fly" bridge just south of Indian Falls. Sheriff Greg Hagwood cautioned the public against swimming in the rivers this time of year due to high water levels and cold temperatures. He said anyone who chose to swim should wear a life jacket. :! i ::iii i:: :  .: ii!i liii' Early morning & evcningl appointments available All appointments seen promptly Accept all insurance Friendly and knowledgeable staff pl, PHYSICAL THERAPY Kory Felker, MPT 78 Central Ave., Quincy 283-2202
