While living in Seneca, Maxine's father was a gold miner and took other work as it came available. Her mother did baking for the popular summer resort that was in Seneca at the time. Many fam- ilies from cities such as San Francisco came to the resort in the summertime, and Max- ine had many fond memories of the people that she met while living there. She often would say that her family "didn't have much, but they never wanted for anything." Maxine had a very rich and full life. She and her hus- band Joseph Palazzi were married in 1940 and enjoyed their life together every minute of every day. They enjoyed fishing, hunting and dancing -- and working. They did everything togeth- er. They both devoted their lives to their family, friends and home. Everyone was al- ways welcome when they came to the Palazzis' door. Maxine was an incredible cook and spent hours in her kitchen preparing every kind of meal one could imagine. No matter how many people dropped by unexpectedly there was always more than enough food to go around. She was known for her fried chicken and potato salad at the July Fourth rodeo. Every- one would stop by their picnic spot to enjoy the food. She W = tration o Family Law - ..........

Sheriff to increase boating enforcement Dan McDonald Staff Writer Nearly 90 percent of boat- ing-related fatalities could have been prevented if the victims had been wearing a life jacket. With that statistic in mind, the Plumas County Sheriff's Office said it is taking an up- coming three-day boater safe- ty enforcement weekend very seriously. "People are going to see an added law-enforcement pres- ence on the lakes," Assistant Sheriff Gerry Hendrick sai4. "The focus is on boater safety awareness and education. But there will be DUI enforce- ment as well." The national Operation Dry Water awareness campaign -00P00_ANNOUNCEMENTS ].. in Loving Memory Of Wilma, Our 13 1/2 year old Newfoundland..

Hendrick said Plumas County would do its part by stepping up patrols and en- forcement on all of the coun- ty's lakes, especially Lake A1- manor, Bucks Lake and Frenchman Lake, during that weekend. Hendrick said part of the goal will be to "change the mindset" of many boaters. He said that in addition to making sure boaters have the required safety equipment on board -- including proper life jackets -- deputies will make sure people follow the rules of the water. "Oneproblem we see is this: People need to have a license to drive a car or fly an airplane, but they don't need one to dri- ve a boat," Hendrick said. "They are behind the wheel of a boat traveling at a high rate of speed that has no brakes." While it is not illegal to have alcoho} t t boat, i iSil, legal to operate -'boat with' a blOOd alcohbI cSfltnt over the 0.08 limit. It's just the same as driving.a car. Hendrick said boaters could expect safety inspec- tions by sheriff's personnel on the lakes. He added that many people on the water don't realize they need to have a lifejacket available when they are oper- ating kayaks or canoes. "Even a stand-up surfboard with a paddle is considered a vessel," Hendrick said.
