Some of these vendors do not have the required permits to sell food products within the county, "In order to protect you and your family, and to discourage door-to-door solicitation from unpermitted vendors, be a proactive consumer by doing the following," suggests the county environmental health department. --Do not allow any sales person in your residence. Talk to your children about this. Never allow a stranger into your home. --Do not be pressured into a purchase. Rudeness or intimidation should be a red flag to say, "No, thank you," and close the door. Take your time to ask questions and feel comfortable with the integrity of the company and the quality of the product. --Protect your identity and pay in cash. Do not give credit card or checking account information unless you know they are a reputable vendor. If you feel something is wrong, trust your feelings and call the Plumas County Sheriffs Office at 283-6300 or 911. --Ask for a brochure. Brochures should have the address and phone number of a local or regional sales office. Ask for and verify information about the company before purchasing any products. Meat products are usually sold by the box and brochures should list the price per pound . for each cut and type of meat in the box. --Ask to see a current Plumas County itinerant vendor license. This license is issued by the county treasurer's office and ensures that the salesmen .have been fingerprinted and completed a background check. --Ask to see a current Plumas County health permit. Permits from other states, courties or cities are not adequate. A County bar association awards $1,000 scholarship The Plumas County Bar Association is pleased to announce the winner of its 2014 scholarship competition. A $1,000 scholarship was awarded to Emily Monday at Chester High School. Applicants for the scholarship submitted essays concerning the issue of privacy in our country as it relates to telephone and Internet use, and how the courts have ruled on this issue. The essays were considered by the scholarship committee together with the student's record of academic achievements and activities.

Speaking on behalf of the scholarship committee of the Plumas County Bar Association, attorney Alice King said that the committee thanks the students who applied as well as their teachers and counselors for encouraging their participation in the program. The bar association has given scholarships to local students since 2001. current Plumas County health permit ensures that the vendor meets the state and local health and safety requirements. --Do not purchase products from an unpermitted vendor. You may contact the Plumas County sheriff or environmental health offices if the vendor cannot or refuses to produce the required permits. If possible, write down the company name and vehicle license number with a short vehicle description. If you are confident the sales company is reliable and properly permitted, here are a few more tips to consider before making your purchase: --Read the product labels. Look at the label for meat type (beef, pork, etc.), cut of meat, net weight, ingredients statement, safe handling information and the USDA facility identification number. Individual items without the proper labeling are not legal for sale unless sold by the box. For questions regarding labeling and weight, contact the Plumas County Agriculture Commissioner at 283-6365. --Check for the meat grade and cuts. USDA inspection of meat is mandatory, but USDA grading of meat is voluntary. The highest beef grades by USDA are prime, choice and select. If a company uses other terms, such as "restaurant grade," ask what the comparable USDA grade is. Know your meat cuts so you aren't paying top dollar for a lesser cut of meat. --You have three days to cancel your sale. For purchases made in your home, the Federal Trade Commission cooling-off rule gives you three days to cancel any purchase over $25. The salesman must inform you of your cancellation rights, give you two copies of a cancellation form and an itemized copy of your receipt. Additional information on canceling a sale can be found at the USDA website at "Be an informed consumer. Follow these tips to ensure the safety of you, your family and your food," says the environmental health department. For additional informatiot k. contact the department at 283-6355.
