Many are complete- ly irrelevant to life in Plumas County; others are simply ridiculous. A new fea- ture, Errata, wilt present the week's strangest letter, news clipping or press release. The following is not a joke, but a genuine press release we received from Petco last week. A hairy dilemma: Brush up on hairballs for National Hairball Awareness Day Hairballs are synony- mous with the gag reflex and the hairball hacking fe- line isn't the only one gag- ging. Pet parents often find themselves retching along- side their kitties during the delivery of these unpleasant "gifts;" which are not only disgusting, but a frequently overlooked health issue. On April 27, National Hairball Awareness Day, cats across awareness the United States have their paws crossed that pet par- ents will pay close attention to the following hairball preventio n tips from Petco. Hairballs defined: It is im- portant to be aware of the causes and symptoms of hairballs. These sticky, wet clumps of hair are caused during a cat's daily groom- ing regimen. Cats inadver- tently swallow loose hair, which collects in their stom- ach or small intestine and is uneasily digested. This blockage can cause cats to hack, gag or retch until they regurgitate the detritus. Symptoms of cats experi- encing a hairball attack in- clude coughing, lethargy or loss of appetite. Hairball prevention: To prevent cats from hairball attacks, start with proper nutrition. Many different types of food reduce shed- ding and help hair move safely and naturally through a cat's digestive system so hairballs do not form. For example, Hill's Science Diet makes a hair- ball control cat food that contains natural vegetable fibers to help aid this process. For those who have questions on their cat's diet, contact one of Petco's Certi- fied Nutrition Advisors, who can help lead any feline to a hairbalt-free life. Hairball fun: In honor of National Hairball Aware- ness Day, there are many ways to get involved online. Help spread the word by hacking up a virtual hair- ball and sending it to friends on Facebook thanks to Hill's Science Diet. FUR- minator is also sponsoring a celebrity-themed "FUR creature" contest. Favorites include Katie Purry and Gene Simmons from HISS. The best FUR creature will be awarded $1,000 to donate to their animal charity of choice, and up to $250 in FURminator tools will be given to the four finalists' charities. y Satscan Electronics d sh Box 209, Quincy, CA 95971 (530) 283-3800 PO Brings It Down To Earth , , AUTHORIZED RETAILER . . , . .  a Adva pM reee 2`n'fn' eaenent and ref5 qfat`  [    e i e b  e W     m m   lesdres AutoPay lh pa iling  p4,=t fro" 0[$lt E,14ewslet, sr od/e rtdemPlio,-t I I=tsl' li 4 5 d$ If Pro  acUtion, kf d{eable PrOnlnlts) PlOd. 5ttm-sn] Pce wig ap.

FEATHER RIVER COLLEGE 570 Golden Eagle Ave., Quincy, CA Amy Schultz, MBA, SIFE Advisor Director, WIP-Youth Entrepreneurship Feather River College recently started an outreach to the com- munity through the Entrepreneurship Speaker series and the Plumas Business Summit. Feather Publishing has been an excel- lent media partner in helping to promote our events throughout their four Plumas County newspapers. We have been able to attract a different type of audience that don't typically attend college events both for our Entrepreneurship Speaker series and that of the Plumas Business Summit. Increased attendance was made possible through the advertising and the coverage provided through Mike Taborski's Business Scene column.
