She was moving slowly enough that I was reminded of a sloth. I knew she wouldn't know what that was, so as I walked by, I said, "You're like a monkey moving around on those bars! .... Nooo", she replied slowly, "Todaaay I aaam being aaa slooooth." Lesson learned; don't underestimate what second graders know. We want you to know that in two weeks we will have a haz- ardous materials drill. On May 18th, we will practice in case there is an ammonia spill at the mill. The drill will take place at the worst possible time, during recess, so that everyone will know what to do. Students will go directly to their classrooms and outside ventilation will be stopped. My final message this week is about requesting classes. Al- though class lists won't be posted until mid-August, we will start working on tentative lists later this month. We need to keep classes as balanced as possible, so sometimes we cannot accommodate requests. However, if you would like us to consider yours, we will need to receive it by May 21st. We will do our best to comply. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary May is Free Child Immunization Month at Plumas County Public Health Agency.

Hazard drill planned at SPI The Plumas County Office of Emergency Services will conduct a drill at Sierra Pa- cific Industries May 18, be- tween 1 -9 p.m. Simulation of a hazardous ammonia leak and its possi- ble impacts to residents and neighbors within a one-half mile radius in the East Quin- cy area will be tested. Emer- gency personnel will be on scene practicing their re- sponse plans. Sierra Pacific Industries was asked to host this drill at its Quincy facility. This drill has given SPI the opportunity to train their employees and supervisors in proper proce- dures in case of a real emer- gency. OES and emergency part- ners have been working closely with Plumas Unified School District and Sierra Cascade Head Start. In the afternoon, schools testing their Emergency Op- erations Plans will include Pioneer Elementary, Plumas Community School, Plumas Charter School and Quincy Head Start Preschool. Stu- dents at these facilities will be taught how to shelter in place in their classrooms to avoid the simulated ammonia inhalation hazard. This part of the drill should last for ap- proximately 20 minutes in their classrooms. Additional partners partici- pating include: Plumas Coun- ty departments of environ- mental health, sheriff, haz mat team, public works and social services; California Highway Patrol, Northern Sierra Air Quality; Quincy Fire Department; Plumas Dis- trict Hospital; Radio Ama- teurs Civil Emergency Ser- vice; and American Red Cross - Quincy Branch. Later that evening, the agencies will practice a vari- ety of emergency response skills and informing the pub- lic of what to do in case of a real ammonia release at this facility. Don't be alarmed that this exercise will cause a lot of ac- tivity in East Quincy. Partici- pating in disaster drills helps communities be better pre- pared to respond to an actual disaster. Working together to improve coordination as com- munity partners prepares for events of public emergencies. Be alert and aware of emer- gency personnel and vehicles in the East Quincy area dur- ing the exercise. Public forum set learning system public comment forum.

But are you preparing your most important piece of equip- ment? The most important piece of equipment you have is not your driver or your putter (or your golf cart...), it's your body. Look at the top male and female goiters of the world; they are preparing their bodies specifically for their sport, and it shows on the course. Golf is the only sport that I can think of that requires virtually the exact same motion over and over again. (Perhaps a baseball pitcher could be included with golfers). The repetitive action, the asyrnmetry of the golf swing and the physical exertion required pretty much guarantees that a golfer will injure thernselves at some point. By the way, 50% of all golfers have some kind of chronic low back complaint, and that's not even the most common injury. So if you have a re-occurring injury or you simply want to improve your game, I can help. How can ! help you? 80% of professional golfers see a Chiropractor. Why is this? Chiropractic concerns itself with the function of the body. lfthe nerves, joints and muscles of the body are functioning correctly, flexibility is improved, range of motion is improved, and posture is improved; this translates to improved swing mechanics - you hit the ball further, you hit the ball more accurately - your game improves. The next time you play, you will not have to look far to find a golfer on one of our local courses that is receiving benefit fi'om Chiropractic. Ask, you may be surprised. If you suffer with physical complaints stemming from your golf game, or simply want to improve your golf game thorough improving your body's functional capacity, call for an appointment: 832-4442. 4 Generations Of Local Family Farming Be Habla :/--  Sod Pavers EspaFol :::/ --" \\; Supplies ..................... ii '   ............
