Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 21, 2014 7A Voters to weigh in on propositions and races Debra Moore Staff Writer dmoore@plumasnews.com For most Plumas County residents, the June 3 primary ballot contains unopposed candidates for county offices, a host of state offices, two state propositions and one congressional race. Registered voters in District 5 face the biggest choice: four candidates for supervisor including one who no longer wants to win, and a write-in who announced her candidacy last week. Clio resident Alice Berg hopes it&apos;s not too late to wage a campaign for supervisor. Berg will rely on social media, including her website votealiceberg.com, to reach constituents. Her name will not appear on the ballot, so voters will need to write it on the appropriate line. Counting those write-in votes can be time consuming. "We have to hand count all of those ballots," said Kathy Williams, the county!s chief elections official. "We physically remove all of the write-ins; we won't know how many votes she receives until the next day." Berg will be hoping that she will be one of the top two vote earners and win a place in the November runoff. It's possible that one candidate could receive 50 percent plus one vote, the amount needed to win the election during the primary, but in a field of four candidates that is difficult. The three names on the ballot are Jon Kennedy, the incumbent who plans to relocate at the end of his current term, and Jeff Engel and Jim Judd. The other county races will be easier to tabulate as they are unchallenged and there are no official write-in candidates. Sheriff Greg Hagwood, District Attorney David Hollister, Treasurer Julie White, Auditor Roberta Allen, Assessor Chuck Leonhardt, County Clerk Kathy Willins, Superintendent of Schools Micheline Miglis and District 3 Supervisor Sherrie Thrall are running unopposed. Multiple candidates are running for the state offices of governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, controller, treasurer, attorney general, insurance commissioner and board of equalization. Congressman Doug LaMalfa is being challenged by fellow Republican Gregory Cheadle, and two Democrats, Heidi Hall and Dan Levine. Two state measures, Propositions 41 and 42, are also on the ballot. Prop. 41 is a bond act for veterans' housing, and Prop. 42 eliminates state reimbursement for public meeting costs. CAL FIRE, from page 1A and leaves from your yard, roof and rain gutters. --Trim branches 6 feet from the ground. --Landscape with fire resistant/drought tolerant plants. Residents and visitors are also warned to take steps to prevent wildfires by remembering that "One Less Spark Means One Less Wildfire." --Use trimming, mowing and powered equipment outdoors before 10 a.m. --Check to ensure burning outdoors is allowed in your area. Cal Fire has banned outdoor burning in many areas or has required a burn permit. --Completely extinguish RESTRICTIONS: Some from page 1A Woodcutting Woodcutting is currently allowed within the Plumas National Forest (public land) ff the daily fire indices permit. To determine if woodcutting is permitted on a given day, call 800-847-7766 prior to cutting wood. A recorded message will notify woodcutters if the next day is hoot-owl (no cutting after 1 p.m.), open all day (no restrictions) or no woodcutting allowed that day. Note: Call before 4:30 p.m. on the day you plan to cut as the message is updated for the following day at about that time. Hot and dry weather is expected to continue through summer and early fall, resulting in increased fire danger. Woodcutters are urged to cut firewood now while conditions permit. Questions about fire restrictions, designated recreation sites, motor vehicle use and firewood cutting on the Plumas National Forest (public may be exempt land) may be directed to local Plumas National Forest offices: Supervisor's Office, 283-2050; Beckwourth Ranger District (Portola/Milford area), 836-2575; Feather River Ranger District (Oroville/Challenge area), 534-6500; and Mt.
