For one Quincy resident, however, it's just a normal day. Lynn Dow, co-owner of American Valley Baking, has biked to work every day for the last eight years. The only times Dow said she did not bike to work was when the road conditions were too icy. Those days, she walked. Dow, who lives about a mile from work, started biking when her son kept borrowing her car. After she unwillingly biked to work a number of times, -',i she grew accustomed to it.

They know they should be prepared to evacuate their homes at any time on short notice, but are they? This is Wildfire Awareness Week in California and Sue McCourt, the county's fire prevention coordinator, urges residents to prepare. "This could be a severe fire season," McCourt said. "We need to be ready." McCourt admitted that, even being in her line of work, she wasn't as prepared as she should be. But reading "Surviving Wildfire: Get Prepared, Stay Alive, Rebuild Your Life" forced her to take action. Colorado resident Linda Masterson wrote the book after she and her husband lost their home and 72-acre tree farm in a 2011 fire that ravaged their area. "My husband and I lost everything but each other. On the road to recovery we had to come to terms with all the things we should and could have done that would've made starting over much easier," Masterson said when she released her book. "I wrote 'Surviving Wildfire' so no one else will have to learn those lessons the hard way." The first lesson she learned was the need to have adequate insurance. In her book, she explains the difference between replacement cost and actual cash value, and the importance of documenting everything that is in one's home. "Many people are underinsured and do not have adequate documentation of possessions," she wrote. After reading the book, McC0urt assessed her own situation. "This book made me pull out my insurance policy and call my agent," said McCourt. "Next on the list is updating all my digital photos." Another portion of the book is devoted to recommendations on making homes more resilient to wildfire, such as using gravel mulch and nonflammable deck furniture.

Biomass presentation to be held Biomass and woody renewables are getting quite the buzz around town, particularly with the news of the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment being awarded a $2.6 million grant from the California Energy Commission to construct a woody biomass boiler project based in Quincy. Meanwhile, the Sierra Institute is forging ahead with a woody biomass-powered combined heat and power facility to be located in Crescent Mills. Proponents said projects like these create jobs, protect drinking water, restore forests and keep communities safer from wildfire. The Sierra Institute will be present at the Indian Valley Community Services District board meeting May 13 to provide a brief presentation on why woody renewables are feasible and an opportunity for Greenville to explore. The presentation will be followed with time for questions and answers.
