Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, June 9, 2010 1111: Feather River Properties: Prc,viding clients a higher standarct :care grown over the years to in- BUSINESS FEATHER RIVER PROPERTIES life, pitching in to help where needed, whether it was for Little League or the Round- house Council. Tom is proud to have been able to take over Feather Riv- er Properties from the late Len Franz, who began the 3.5- year tradition of honesty and integrity in the independent, family owned and operated business. Being a Realto r means something special to Tom; it means he abides by and is governed by a code of ethics, and promises to provide a higher standard of care and value for his clients, both buyers and sellers. "I make the best decisioxis I can because I still want to be in business 35 years from now," Tom said. The Rogers also provide property management ser- vices, which has been a part of the business that has Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor Tom and Reina Rogers moved to Indian Valley in 1993, just missing the record- breaking and roof-collapsing snowstorms. Although they were a little shell-shocked by the sheer amount of snow that greeted them on their arrival, it did not change the coUple's plans to stay and raise their family. Both jumped right into the rural mountain community clude 35 properties at this time. Both Tom and Reina have served on several boards, pro- viding community service on different levels. Tom is currently on the Plumas County Board of Real- tors, Greenville Little League and the Indian Valley Recre- ation and Parks District, while Reina is currently chairwoman of the Round- house Council, is a lifetime member of the Regional Advi- sory Council and works for the USDA as a liaison for Cal- ifornia Indians. She was one of those who helped create the popular Natural Resources Program at Greenville High School. Two of their children have already graduated from Greenville, including Christina, who is attending Butte College with plans to transfer to a four-year uni- versity after one more se- mester, and Tommy, who just graduated last year and is adjusting to life after high school. Their youngest son, Tony, is a sophomore who looks for- ward to playing football this fall. "I think we live in a won- derful time," Tom says of his family and all the modern ways of doing things. "And I worry about how kids will make it, just like my dad did with me." Cowboy ! 13 pert orl I June 25 Larry Maurice is one of the finest cowboy poets perform- ing today. He has spent the last 20 years as a cowboy, horse wrangler and packer in the Eastern Sierra and the high deserts of Nevada. You're likely to find him lead- ing a string of mules into the backcountry, on a horse drive in the Owens Valley or work- ing with longhorn cattle in Virginia City, Nev. Days and nights on the trail, living the rambling life of a cowboy, have filled Mau- rice's soul with the spirit of the West -- that spirit has found a home in the tall tales and songs he brings to every performance. Through poet- ry, song and stories, Maurice is able to transport his listen- ers back in time, allowing them to experience the cattle drives, characters and crit- ters of the old west In July 2000, Maurice re- ceived the Academy of West- ern Artists Coveted Will Rogers Cowboy Award for Cowboy Poet of the Year. His CDs have received great re- views and in 1996, 1998 and 2000 were nominated for Al- bum of the Year by the Acade- my of Western Artists. Over the last few years, Maurice has had to juggle his need to be on horseback with his busy entertainment schedule as a sought-after en- tertainer, not only for his cowboy poetry that speaks from the heart of the day-to- day cowboy, but also for his ability to breathe life into the history of the American West. He may also be found act- ing as an announcer or mas- ter of ceremonies for rodeos, parades, mounted shooting competitions, film festivals or singing the national anthem for the opening of a major sports event. What better place for him to ply his trade than in Sierra Valley, in the heart of ranch- ing country, one of the largest and highest alpine valleys in the western hemisphere. Maurice will perform at the Old Sierraville School on Highway 89 in the Sierra Val- ley Friday, June 25. An equally perfect match of artist and venue will be found Saturday, June 26, when Lar- ry will bring his show to the historic Yuba Theatre in Downieville, a town where the ghosts of the gold rush keep the spirit of the West alive. Both performances start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door: $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students. Cowboy poet Larry Maurice will present two shows, in Sierrav-; ille and in Downieville, June 25 and 26, respectively. Photo cour- tesy Larry Maurice Reina and Tom Rogers came to Indian Valley 17 years ago to raise their family, and since then have bec0me involved in the community on several levels.
