Musselman was bound over for trial on the three felonies at the conclusion of a day.long preliminary hearing in Plumas County Superior Court. The order was issued May 23 by Judge Ann Rutherford, who considered testimony from nearly a dozen prosecution witnesses, including alleged victim John Bergstrand, be- fore ruling. Rutherford, assigned to hear the case after Musselman filed a motion to remove Judge Alan H. Thieler from handling his case, was told about the string of events that resulted up cab- Farris on up the Sier- exception , arld up a por- Road and raap for more Supervisor B.J. Pearson said he likes the plan, but wants to ensure that he will retain the Nervino Airport in Beckwourth. He also asked for an adjustment which would give him five to seven additional homes near the air- port, and an adjustment which would eliminate some residents from his district on A-23 heading toward Calpine.

Witnesses said Musselman stormed into a health club in Quincy, found Bergstrand in a sauna and beat him, breaking Bergstrand's nose and ribs and causing other injuries. Motion denied Calling the incident "a very sad situation," Rutherford turned away a request by de- fense attorney Richard Young to reduce the charges against the doctor to misdemeanors. Young contended that Bergstrand's injuries were mi- nor, characterizing what took place as "a punch in the nose" and as "a punch in the ribs." Young argued that the inci- dent was nothing more than a squabble between two men in "a love triangle" involving Musselman's wife, Julie. See Doctor, page IOA FRC finishes 4th in Northern Calif.

Supervisor Don Clark sug- gested that the Canyon be re- turned to District 2, instead of being placed in District 4 with Supervisor Ken Nelson. (Su- pervisor Robert Meacher, who represents District 2, was not at the meeting to com- ment.) "Meacher's getting all of the land, just no people," Pearson said. Clark said he was okay with his district's boundaries and would be willing to negotiate with population on the north Devil's Fire forces 300 out By Kevin Mallory Assistant to the Pt~isher mid Dave Keller Staff Writer A blaze on private and fed- eral land has consumed more than 4,100 acres and has forced at least 300 residents near Su~nville to be evacuat- ed. But the blaze---known as the Devil's Fire--was 35 percent contained as the newspaper went to press at about 9 a.m. Tuesday, officials said. The fire moved aggressive ly, reaching within half a mile of the west side of Susanville yesterday, officials said. But fireflghters were able to protect homes and other buildings by launching a sub- stantial defensive attack. The fire scorched land owned by Beatty and Associ- ates and managed by the Bu- reau of Land Management and the Lassen National Forest. Mandatory evacuations oc. curred in the River Roost Mo- bile Home Park, Hillcrest Dri- ve, Miller Road, Cheney Creek Road and Hobo Camp Road ar- eas as well as the entire un- paved part of South Street, paved South Street to West Street and South Lassen to Carroll Street. Schools were closed on Tuesday in the Susanville area because of the unhealth- ful conditions from smoke as well as evacuations. According to a spokesper- son for the Lassen National Forest, nearly 1,300 flreflght- ers have been assigned to the fire, including 14 air tankers, 6 helicopters, 104 engines and more than three dozen crews. Officials say the fire started at about 3 p.m. Sunday seven Fire, page IOA
