BREAKIIti8 ItlEWS! Hand-cycle endurance challenge set for Sept. M. Kate West Staff Writer The 17th annual Wheel Around Lake Almanor Hand Cycle Endurance Challenge will again take on the 34-mile trek Sunday, Sept. 14. Past WALA chairman Randy Fossom, who has been a ride participant for all 16 years, talks about the sport of hand cycling and the local event. "It's important that we all understand that this is not a race to see who wins -- it's all about the wheelers setting personal goals and meeting the challenge of the 34-mile route." In addition to the Sunday morning endurance challenge, WALA offers a Saturday evening dinner and an event day breakfast for the participants. The purpose of the Saturday night dinner is to establish camaraderie among the riders. "You hear them share about how they accomplish certain tasks or even the attributes of different wheelchairs and hand cycles. It is a good way for them to get together to communicate, compare and learn from each other," Diane Fossom said. The event begins in front of the Old Town Chester location of the Lake Almanor Elks Lodge No. 2626. Cycles will be lined up after the Sunday breakfast and riders will take to the roadways at 9 a.m. What's new for 20147 This year WALA is being chaired by lodge member Terry Parsons and he is working to add multiple rest and refreshment stops for the event participants. ,'I have been thinking about This year marks the 17th year that Lake Almanor Elks Lodge No. 2626 will host Wheel Around Lake Almanor. This 34-mile endurance challenge is open to both hand-cyclists and those who would like to show their support for the wheelchair athletes. Photo by M. Kate West getting local businesses and service clubs involved in rest areas, maybe make it competitive over who has the best rest area -- make it a little bit more fun for the cyclists," he said. Parsons envisions different rest area setups with a variety of foods, music and booth decorations. "I think it will be a lot of fun for businesses and clubs to do it. If they provide the basics of food and water, the rest can be unlimited. "This is all about increasing services to the rider while upping the anticipation level of what will come up next in the ride," Parsons said. Who can ride? While the primary participants are handcyclists, Parsons is encouraging anyone who would like to ride to ride. "Anybody within this readership that knows someone who would like to ride should know they are most welcome to join," he said. Parsons also said that a separate registration form would be made available to any cycler who would like to ride and support the wheelchair athletes. The general cost to the public to join the race is $20. About WALA WALA is a nonprofit fundraiser that supports many local children and families. "The handcyclists of WALA face challenges every day of their lives, whether that is paraplegia, quadriplegia, spina bifada, cerebral palsy or the loss of both legs. But, on one special day of the year, they rise to meet the challenge of riding a handcycle or wheelchair around Lake Almanor," Fossom said. "They do so because they have a deep commitment to helping others" Over the past 16 years WALA has provided support for dozens of individuals in need and to community agencies that provide other needed services in the Lake Almanor area. Pledges made to riders and community contributions, both local and from across the nation, have exceeded $80,000 over the ride's history. Nor limited to September giving, year-round donations can be made to WALA c/o Lake Almanor Elks Lodge, P.O. Box 1329, Chester, Calif. 96020.

Capital credits are unique to cooperatives like PSREC. They represent the margins (capital remaining after expenses) allocated to cooperative members each year. These credits are based on the amount and cost of electricity each member purchased during the year. Capital credits become PSREC's equity.This equity makes it possible to secure loans and maintain facilities and services needed to deliver electricity to each member. PSREC's board of directors decides when the equity is sufficient to return credits to members. Capital credits are reserved for members even if they leave the cooperative and move out of the area. If members are eligible for disbursements, PSREC will make a diligent effort to send them a check by mail to the most current address on file. If the check is returned or unclaimed, names will be published in local newspapers of general circulation and on PSREC's website, If you are a former PSREC member, please keep a current address on file to help us deliver future checks.
