8A Wednesday, May 30, 2001 County News I I By Terri Nacar Portola Editor The Portola City Council was united in condemning B. J. Pearson and the board of supervisors for its recent deci- sion regarding the use of $70,000 of the Lake Davis set- tlement fund. Former supervisor Fran Roudebush was instrumental in allocating $80,000 of the fund to the Forest Service for improvements to Lake Davis and the construction of a handicap fishing access ramp. The settlement called for those funds to be used for pro- jects which would help the economy of Eastern Plumas County and specifically the area which suffered the most damage from the poisoning of Lake Davis. Since his election to the By Dave Keller Staff Writer A Sacramento man, who al- legedly crashed a stolen vehi- cle into a Quincy resident's yard and then fled, has pled not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon. But Gregory Varlomoff will continue to be held in custody because of an alleged parole violation. Varlomoff faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest and reckless driving and, if convicted, could receive up to four years in state prison. Varlomoff, who has pled not By Dave Keller Staff Writer David B. McNally continues to be held on $100,000 bail in the rape ofa Portola woman.

The scion wood was gath- ered from well-known or- chards, such as the one off Williams Valley Road in board of supervisors, Pearson has been fighting to get those funds returned to the county. His goal was to use the mon- ey for a skateboard park in Portola. During the time Pearson was a member of the council, the council had spoken to the skateboard committee, a group of parents and children who want the skateboard park built, and an agreement had been reached. The committee said it would raise the funds necessary to construct the skateboard park and have it constructed and the city would locate and set aside the property for the park. Pearson approached the council with a proposal that would use $70,000 of those funds for a skateboard park in guilty, was arrested after he allegedly tried to run over two women with a car in East Quincy. Witnesses say Varlomoff missed his intended targets, lost control of the vehicle, drove into a fence on the cor- ner of Redberg and Weldon and then smacked into a parked vehicle on a Quincy resident's private property. Sheriff Len Gardner said Varlomoff then fled the scene and was not arrested until he was discovered hiding out in a cabin eight hours later.

Murphy said that, during the supervisor's meeting May 15, a motion was passed (5-0) setting aside the $70,000 for the skateboard park condi- tional upon the city setting aside an additional $.30,000 within the next 90 days. "The motion further stated that should the city fall to set aside the $30,000, the $70,000 commitment by Plumas Coun- ty would be divided evenly among the other four districts within Plumas County," said Murphy. Murphy asked Pearson, who was going to be the pro- ject manager and owner of the skateboard park, and was told "the city." If the city were to be the project manager of the facili- ty, it would fall under the state defined category of a public works project, meaning "I don't threats and I sor's vote as a thllll~i extortion, sa hYhYhYh come up with Oe~ $30,000 yoU loSe~f-{i $70,000 to the ty," he said. lkll~ Mayor Bill A~ minded the oth l members that, w~ was running for_,'l@a one of his conce JFre the supervisorS~: ing Lake Davis the state regulations pertain- other than EastO~l% ing to engineering, engineer- County, and no~'~tal ing review and prevailing the $70,000 to go t0aq[k~-' wage would apply, causing than his district- even more of an increase in Pearson said l lltt] costs to the project, be elected to helPS== Murphy was also concerned instead of drivi =l that there is no cost estimate tween the counff~, for the proposed facility and now it appears ~.~atL that the $100,000 was going to ing to drive a I~ create a false expectation that than ever betw~ the park should be completed said. . once the funds were set aside.
