61B Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter ORDER CHP REPORT The foflowing incidents are submitted by Quincy CHP as a tentative summary pending the conclusion of the investigation(s). Rush Creek Road, May 14 At approximately 4 a.m., a hit and run traffic collision occurred in the Feather River Canyon on Rush Creek Road. According to the CI-IP report, an unidentified driver of an unidentified vehicle was traveling north on Rush Creek Road, approximately one-tenth of a mile north of Highway 70, at a speed likely less than 40 miles per hour. For an unknown reason the driver turned the vehicle unsafely to the right. The side of the vehicle traveled off the east road edge and collided with a fence, just east of the road edge. The collision damaged approximately 10-15 feet of fencing. It is not suspected there were any injuries sustained as a result of this collision. Highway 89, May 14 At approximately 3:45 p.m., a major injury collision occurred on Highway 89, north of Dixie Canyon Road. According to the CHP report, Delora Lumis, 55, of Bakersfield, was driving a 1999 Ford F-150 pickup southbound on Hwy. 89 when, due to her alleged level of impairment, the Ford exited the west side of the roadway. The front of the Ford collided with a rock wall and the vehicle subsequently rolled onto its left side, coming to rest blocking the southbound lane. Lumis was taken to Enloe Hospital in Chico with major injuries. The report shows that she was arrested. H.ighway 395, May 15 Myron Stanley, 38, of Reno, was towing a travel trailer with his 2002 Chevy Trailblazer on Hwy. 395 at approximately 50-55 mph in the No. 2 lane. According to the CHP report, at approximately 11:55 a.m., a gust of wind hit the vehicle, causing the trailer to start swerving back and forth. Stanley couldn't regain control of the trailer and the whipping back and forth got worse. The vehicle skidded back and forth across both northbound lanes then the trailer overturned and separated from the town vehicle. No injuries were reported. Crescent Street, Quincy, May 15 A non-injury collision occurred in the Subway parking lot at 23 Crescent Street in Quincy. At approximately 1:15 p.m., April Lewis, 37, of Chico, was driving her 2003 Suzuki Vitara in a westerly direction toward Crescent Street and came to a stop to clear traffic before entering. Karen Froggatt, 70, of Quincy, was driving her 2007 Chrysler 300 and was backing out of a stall to the right rear of Lewis' Suzuki. According to the CHP report, the left corner of the Chrysler's rear bumper then collided with the right rear corner of the Suzuki. All parties reported wearing their safety belts at the time of the collision and no injuries were reported. Highway 70, May 15 At approximately 2:59 p.m., Scott J.S. Dulgar, 40, of Chester, was driving his friend's 2002 black Toyota Tacoma along Highway 70 at a stated speed of 35 mph. Dulgar had just passed by the Greenville Wye and was going around a very sharp left hand curve (known locally as "Spanish Falls") when he claimed that an oncoming charcoal colored mid-sized SUV came around the curve "one-quarter to one-third of the way in his lane." According to the CHP report, Dulgar allowed the Tacoma to drift partially onto the south dirt shoulder in an attempt to avoid hitting the SUV. As the Tacoma neared the end of a dirt turnout on the shoulder, Dulgar forcefully turned the steering wheel of the Tacoma to the left in an attempt to get the Tacoma back onto the roadway. The Tacoma entered into a counter-clockwise yaw and skidded across both lanes of the highway. The front end of the Tacoma then impacted with the rock mountainside on the north shoulder. The Tacoma came to rest facing northwest, completely blocking the westbound lane. Dulgar knew that the Tacoma was in a very bad spot with limited visibility. After a cursory look at the damage to the Tacoma, he drove the Tacoma westbound (the way the Tacoma was facing) until he could turn around. Dulgar turned around as soon as he could and tried to continue his trip to Quincy. Dulgar made it as far as the Spanish Creek campground before the Tacoma gave out and could not be driven any longer. Dulgar was wearing his seat belt at the time of the collision and was protected from serious injury. Highway 147 May 15 At approximately 8:30 p.m., Kristy Webster, 34, of Orland, was traveling south on Highway 147 from Susanville, in a 2012 Dodge Avenger. A deer hopped across the roadway from the west shoulder, heading in an easterly direction. Webster left offthe gas, held the wheel at 10 and 2 and hoped for the best. Unfortunately, the left front of Webster's vehicle struck the deer. The deer landed in a ditch to the west of the roadway and Webster stopped to check on it and her vehicle. The deer had expired and Webster didn't note'any hindering damage to her vehicle. Webster continued to drive to Quincy and when she arrived her employer had her contact CHP for further assistance. Webster and her passenger were both wearing their safety belts and were not injured during the collision. Advertising works!

Sierra Park Property Development, LLC 749 Lee Road Suite A, Quincy, CA 95971 (530) 283-9301 Looking for Norman Rockwell. a place to bring longings to life She wandered to small towns -- Silverton, Oregon; Sonora, California; Omak, Washington; Orcas Island, Washington; Genoa, Nevada; Litchfield, Minesotta; Alma, Wisconsin; Nelson, British Columbia. Reveling in small community exploration, she was always looking to see if Norman Rockwell still existed. Not Norman Rockwell in the flesh, of course -- but his way of depicting a life well lived. Spending time at quilting bees, local festivals, pancake breakfasts, county fairs, she longed for and pursued a simpler way of living. Full to the brim of most modern accoutrements, she tired of the stress of acquiring a "lifestyle." She just wanted to live a "life." Keeping in check the desires of her own children in a city of plenty, she often found it difficult to create the space in which to have a relationship with her own spirit. In the city she revisited past inclinations -- taking up horseback riding, as she had done as a young woman. There was a reason she rode out through the pasture, watching the incoming fog play with the setting sun behind oak silhouettes. Wanting to be touched bY the stillness and strength of nature, she stole time from career and family in order to put back the pieces that had fallen apart in "big city life." Finally she made the move -- after children had grown. Because they were not inclined to leave the nest -- she left it -- finding her way to a small town in the Sierra. Purchasing a home, she settled into a place that would allow her time, space and the community with which to rediscover herself. ...... COMMUNITY GREEN PAMELA NOEL Many do not have the luxury of this kind of move. Some, however, have moved to a small community to pursue what this woman did -- finding a place in which to rest into the best of oneself. Finding a way to sustain oneself in a way in which to foster discovery and reduce stress allows one to gain a more reasonable perspective on one's life and purpose. Norman Rockwell has become the icon of small-time idealized life. Silverton, Oregon, pays homage to him by having large "Rockwellian" murals throughout the town. Mostly, Rockwell exists in posters and reproductions of his- Saturday Evening Post renderings. Even though that life may only exist on paper, walls and in our longings, it still influences the way in which we live now. In small-town living we can find ourselves available to "the moment" with others. We can stop. We can linger. We can sit with a friend and a cup of tea. We can get to know one another in ways that big city defensiveness makes challenging. We no longer have to confront long lines of "rush hour" commuting. Our commute here is sometimes accompanied by a pair of Canadian geese -- and little else. Last night, we had an impromptu neighborhood gathering, passing around the field glasses to see a bear that was perched on a branch 40 feet up a pine tree. Small events bring us together. Larger events bring us together even more. We need to find ways to continue to make this work here. 'We need to encourage, see the best in everyone, extend a hand, making life easier for another. We have one opportunity in this life to manifest the best in ourselves and our circumstances. Working together we can sustain this community agriculturally, economically, socially, educationally, spiritually, culturally and in all other ways. We are integral in one another's lives -- even though we may think we are separate. We need each other, especially in these challenging times. So, even though Norman Rockwell is just a vague memory for many and a longing for others, he captures the spirit of what we have the potential to be.
