Indian Valley resident Titcomb appeared before the Board of Supervisors on May 7 to ask for the appointment as well as a $500 contribution to the organization that represents eight counties and covers 20 percent of the land mass of the state of California. Shasta Cascade promotes the area heavily in Europe and East Asia, translating its visitors guide into eight languages and distributing it widely. Titcomb said he personally carries the Plumas County Visitors Guide and other brochures to the tourism center offofHighway 5 in Anderson. He has also worked on the county display in Sacramento. Bink Huddleston, president of the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce, complimented Titcomb and said that before he took responsibility to stock the displays, Plumas County was not well represented. The supervisors voted to take $500 from its membership account to pay the dues to Shasta Cascade and to designate Lori Simpson and Kevin Goss as Titcomb's contacts on the Board of Supervisors.
