The story, "Annual jazz lest enlivens theater" by Kayla Wohlford, called the QHS en- semble's performance of "Sing, Sing, Sing" a lively, strong beginning to the show. The group also performed "Blue Moon," featuring the vocals of Natalie Kepple, who will sing for Plumas audi- ences as one of the Dyna- mites in Feather River Col- lege's upcoming production of "Hairspray." Wohlford quoted a Chicoan, John Williams, who was impressed by the Quincy group. "The Quincy band was areally great, impressive small-town production," he said. Tanner Johns, music direc- tor for Quincy High, is a Chico State grad. He holds a degree in music education and a teaching credential from the school. Johns will conduct the orchestra for "Hairspray." He told The Orion that even though QHS is a small school, students get "to par- ticipate in a wide range of ac- tivities," which "helps to pro- duce really well-rounded stu- dents." As if to prove his point, the Quincy High jazz band also rocked the house last Wednesday night, April 25, during the all-county Jazz Night at the Town Hall The- atre, sponsored by Plumas Arts. You can catch these talent- ed young musicians Wednes- day, May 30, for Concert on the Green at QHS, starting at 5p.m. ' Giant ya00d sale The East Quincy Merchants Association has announced its annual giant yard sale will be May 19, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. In addition to a bargain shopping opportunity, the merchants group will provide food and music at the Sav-Mor parking lot.

The focal depth was shallow, only two miles below the surface, which is probably why it was locally felt. People reported a mild jiggle that briefly shook the windows. One resident reported their dog barked. A series of four quakes were recorded west and south of Chester. The largest measured M 1.8 and occurred in the Solider Meadows area.
