Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 7, 2010 3A Anniversary celebration Feather River Coordinated Resource Management group hosted its 25th anniversary celebration June 11-12 in Red Clover Valley. More than 75 people enjoyed the tour and barbecue, including some of the founding fathers of the organization. Another 50 people participated in the nature walks Saturday. The Goodwin family shared the extensive restoration work done on its property over the last 25 years. Some of the original partner representatives attended the anniversary celebra- tion, returning to see their first project implemented in 1985 on Red Clover Creek.

Like many neighborhoods in the area, this one borders National Forest land. That proximity encourages such excursions. The California Department of Fish and Game cautions homeowners to avoid confrontations with wild animals such as bear by limiting their access to food and garbage.

Paid Political Advertisement CAP THE TAX \\; DIRECT QUOTES / Our Mission: Limitation of the Property Tax Levy for the Hospital Bond to $50 per $I00,000 of Assessed Value THESE NEWSPAPER COLUMNS CAME FROM THE FEATHER RIVER BULLETIN AND APPEARED IN THE OCTOBER 14, 2009 ISSUE. THESE ARE DIRECT QUOTES. RICHARD HATHAWAY IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND JOHN NADONE IS THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER OF PLUMAS DISTRICT HOSPITAL. CHUCK LEONHARDT IS THE PLUMAS COUNTY TAX ASSESSOR. Flr'lher, Nadolm said the d isirict had ah'eady pushed the sale of the second set of bollds back to February, and it COIll(t conceivably push the sale to a "March...April time t'Fl}lllt." lie evell, hesihmtly, said the district could "give the molley ba,t:k." According to Hathaway, "between now and next spring, we have the opportu- nity to stop (the project) at any time," tte also admitted to a discussion with Nadone in which they both voiced a "fear (not only for) the next two to three years. It's man. aging the hospital after it's done, making sure that the business continues to thrive. When a piece of equipment breaks, that we can take care of it, and that we haven't done something that's going to jeopardize the future of the hospital." The unexpected higher tax rate has taxpayers feeling btindsided. Since there are so many variables ir)volved in determinh,g just what their tax bill will be during the ;-10 years it will lah e to repay these bonds, they're asking just what is the .'.rue upper limit they can exlct to pay. "We have .o idea," said Nadone. Asked what many tax, payers are asking-..-"Where's the ceil ing?"--Leonha r dt replied, "I don't have an answer to thai. I'd like to know."
