Many of the embers that strike the side of the house can fall to the ground and accumulate next to your home. If your neighborhood is asked to evacuate as wildfire approaches, the embers can lie there, glowing unattended for hours or even days. If the embers are in contact with a wood or other combustible material sided house, or something that can ignite in the flowerbed, your home could be in jeopardy• The vegetation, landscape materials and other items located immediately adjacent to your home have critical influence on house survival during wildfire and ember attack• Homeowners living in high fire hazard areas need to create a "noncombustible (or low combustible) area" within 3 -5 feet of their houses. Some of the important "do's" and "don'ts" of a noncombustible area include: Dos... • Do use hard surfaces such as concrete, brick and rock Rich Fire as seen from • Do use green, healthy well maintained lawn Meadow Valley, July 2008 • Do use gravel or rock mulches • Do use irrigated herbaceous plants such as annual and perennial flowers and groundcovers • Do use short, less than 18" in height, deciduous shrubs, but don't locate them in front of foundation vents Dent's... • Don't locate the firewood pile, or other combustible materials such as lumber in this area • Don't use wood, barker rubber mulches • Don't have uncovered garbage cans or recycling bins here • Don't have dried grass and weeds, fallen pine needles and leaves or dead branches located in this area • Don't use ornamental evergreen plants, such as shrub junipers Having a noncombustible (or low combustible) area next to your home is an important part of protecting it from wildfire. Don't wait -- take action now before the embers arrive. ........... "" Watch this paper each week for tips to help you prepare and survive wildfire season. !

Dutch was honorably dis- charged in 1970, returned to the Sacramento area and be- gan working in the building trades. He obtained a con- tractor's license a decade lat- er. In 1986 he relocated to Chester, and in 1996 founded Bailey Creek Builders, a gen- eral contracting firm he ran until his diagnosis forced his retirement last year. As a contractor, Dutch built a rep- utation for quality work, per- sonal integrity and a commit- ment to fulfilling his clients' wishes for their projects. Bai- ley Creek Builders pros- pered, becoming particularly known for the beauty and craftsmanship of its home de- signs; the communities and shorefront roads throughout the Lake Almanor region are graced with scores of such houses. In addition, among its notable projects, Bailey Creek built the Collins Pine Museum in Chester. Three years after moving to Chester, Dutch met Arlie; they fell in love and married a year later. Dutch adopted Ar- lie's two young children and raised them as his own. While he enjoyed and took pride in his work, and had a full share of outside interests, Dutch centered his life around fami- ly. His bonds with Arlie; his sons Chris, Caleb and Michael; daughters Catherine and Jessie; and, in time, two daughters-in-law, Kacie and Kim; a son-in-law, Gregor; and three beloved grandkids, Kaidyn, Jax and Cormac; were all the world to him, the source of his deepest motiva- tions and satisfactions. Outside of work and fami- ly, Dutch had two enduring passions, around which he built many close friendships: a love of the outdoors, mani- fested in countless hunting and fishing expeditions; and sports, which, after moving to Chester, became increas- ingly channeled into a fer- vent devotion to the game of golf. Dutch hunted deer as far afield as Colorado, on trips with friends and, especially, with his sons Chris and Caleb. Their annual trip to Colorado was so dear to him that he instructed a portion of his ashes be scattered at their hunting grounds there. The seashore was another source of natural apprecia- tion and pleasure, and he, Arlie and the rest of his family enjoyed many idyllic vacations, often with friends, in Hawaii and Baja. From his days as a two- sport college prospect, Dutch never lost his taste for athlet- ics, and, till nearly the end, visits of friends were often organized around a ballgame telecast, As for golf, an old saying has it that the game doesn't build character, it reveals it. This was certainly the case for Dutch. Golf for him seemed as much vocation as recreation. Like building a house, like most everything Dutch set his hand to, it was a craft to be mastered with the same zealotry for doing things The Right Way, the same relentless persistence of attention and effort. He be- came a fixture at Bailey Creek, but especially on the range, where he smote such a PGA-worthy volume of striped bails the staff eventu- ally awarded him an exclu- sive dispensation for free buckets. The fruits of these painstaking labors included several course championship titles. At the memorial services, a longtime friend swore he and three of Dutch's other golf buddies, while playing a round the day after Dutch passed, had discovered an ex- tra ball near where their own drives had clustered on the 14th fairway. It was in the first cut, about where a play- er who was, as Dutch had been, a long-hitting right- hander with a tendency to draw the ball might end up. Upon inspection, it was dis- covered to be a Titleist NXT. Need it be said this was the make and model he always played? We will miss you, Dutch, but we rest in the as- surance that your approach to the flag is open, and your aim was always true.

She was an inspiration to hundreds of local scholars since she began teaching at Quincy Elementary School in 1973. She gave her students, over the decades, the most precious gifts: the ability to I Memorial Keepsakes i :' .... ! !i  Have a lasting tribute made :' : ],' with cremation ashes   encased with glass Custom Cremain Beads by Sara Conklin Call 530-836-1762 or emaih read and the ways to see the beauty in the world we get to live in. Generations of young people learned how to make their way with "Ms. Dovl's" tender encouragements. She retired from teaching in spring 2011. Mary was born in Sacra- mento in 1949 to Marjorie and Sebastian "Tom" Dovi (now deceased). As the oldest in her family she helped care for her siblings: Tom, Jim and Susan. She attended Hiram Johnson High School and Sacramento City College. Mary then earned a liberal arts degree at the University of California, Berkeley and her teaching cre- dential at Sacramento State• Her love of the California Golden Bears helped encour- age her three sons -- Terry, Patrick and Brian -- to attend and graduate from Berkeley• She and John Sheehan were married in 1980, receiving their guests at their home in Quincy, which they've since added onto five times. Mary received an honorary title from a Native American friend as "Chief Mother" for her many years and ways of nurturing the community. She spent more than a decade as co-director of the Johnsville Junior Ski Team. Under her tutelage, JJST had its first state junior individual and team ski racing champi- onships. Her sons thrived with state junior and high school individual and team championships. Quincy High won its first state skiing title. Each of her three sons also be- came the captain of the UC Berkeley ski team. Her advice to the skiers, "Ski fast, don't fall,' encouraged all. Mary built her own 14-foot long. boards and regularly raced them at Eureka Ski Bowl. Mary found lifelong joy in the Sierra Nevada at the ski resorts, on the Pacific Crest Trail and at her favorite Ju- niper, Crystal and Bucks lakes. She shared her love for the outdoors. Mary, with her first-graders at Quincy Elementary School and her other colleagues, helped begin the environmen- tal education program on Boyle Ravine. This approach has since broadened to each of the schools in the Feather Riv- er watershed, featuring "Learning Landscapes" See Vitals, page 3B to, established 1929 Monuments.
