reamer Kwer Uulietm Wednesday, May 21, 2014 A Intern showcase highlights growing real-world work experience Laura Beaton Staff Writer The seventh Internship Showcase took place at the Feather River College Gallery on May 16. About 20 successful interns, their mentors and instructors gathered to celebrate another successful Business 171 class. This semester's internships were in the fields of culinary arts, technology, organic farming, greenhouse cultivation, radiology, radio, arts, forest preservation, Maidu culture and a succession planning pilot project. The latter paired three businesses with three possible successors to those businesses. In small communities such as Plumas', a business that closes its doors can devastate the local economy. The pilot program explores ways these businesses can continue. Another presentation was given by the student group Enactus regarding the group's upcoming trip to Uganda to continue its water project. In 2012, members of Interns and mentors gather in the Gallery before the start of the seventh Internship Showcase on May 16. Nearly 20 interns gave brief presentations highlighting what they accomplished during their internships. Photo by Laura Beaton the group traveled to Mabare, Uganda, and worked with a local aid group, Rumiso, to install a 2-kilometer water pipeline and six taps for villagers' use. Enactus also helped local entrepreneurs start up three businesses: a soap-making business, a small-animal farming business and a revolving loan fund. When they return in early June, another kilometer of waterline will be installed to provide water to a village beyond Mabare. Before the pipeline, villagers had to fetch their water at the well 2 - 3 kilometers away. In addition to installing the pipeline in 2012, Enactus members taught villagers about health and hygiene to help reduce disease and malnutrition. Rajinder Gill, coordinator of the internship program, said her goodbyes to students and colleagues at the end of the showcase as she is moving to Oregon. A luncheon and tour of the FRC greenhouse followed. OBITUARY Retha G. Selby Retha G. Selby, 86, earned her angel wings on May 14, 2014, at Enloe Hospital in Chico. Her final days were spent with family and friends that Retha had touched in many ways throughout her memorable life. She gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us that faith and love are a precious part of life. She was born May 2, 1928, in Elizabeth, Ark., to Jonathan and Flora Harris. Jonathan preceded her in death in 1956 and Flora preceded her in death in 1980. Retha was a sister to her twin brothers Winfred and Wilburn. Wilburn preceded her in death in 1961.

They had four children, Arlen, Elaine, Shelah and Alan. Arlen preceded her in death in 1978. She remarried in 2001 to Carl Selby. Carl preceded her in death in 2005. She loved to sing, read, quilt, sew and travel. Being with her family, friends and her dog Gypsy always made her smile. Retha was a strong Christian woman all of her life. She shared her faith with others by teaching Sunday school, singing, playing the piano, guitar and singing praises of the Lord. Her faith and love for her family, friends and the Lord is an inspiration to us all. We are blessed to have loved and known such an amazing woman. She worked 16 years for Essex Lumber Company, 10 years at the California Almond Growers. She worked 17 years at the Quincy Convalescent Hospital. Retha received her LVN license at the age of 54.
