Democrats discuss disclosure The "Disclose Act," recent- ly reintroduced in the Senate, is designed to provide disclo- sure rules for political groups who advertise during elec- tions. The legislation aims to ad- dress effects of the Supreme Court's Citizens United rul- ing of 2010 and will be the top- ic of discussion at this month's meeting of the Plumas County Democratic Central Committee. Because the Disclose Act of 2012 is more moderate and streamlined than the 2010 version of the bill, Plumas Democrats will be peer-study-. ing the topic, comparing it al- so with the California Dis- close Act. This 2012 version requires disclosure only after a group spends $10,000 or more in aggregate. It does not prohibit campaign spending by foreign entities, TARP recipients and government contractors. The bill also does not require companies to report campaign spending to shareholders, or require lobbyists to report campaign spending. The Democrats will meet Thursday, July 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Democratic Head- quarters at 567 Lawrence Street in Quincy. Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings of the local Democratic Party. Museum features photography Fine art photographer Willie J. Hyman, of Chico, is the featured artist now on exhibit at the Plumas Coun- ty Museum. His artwork, featuring scenes of nature, rural landscapes and studies of railroads and railroad graffiti, will be on display at the museum's Stella Fay Miller mezzanine gallery through Aug. 31. Hyman, now 83, has been a photographer since 1948 and a fine art photographer since 1980. He relies on the use of professional film, pro- fessional cameras and equip- ment, and lots of hard-work and dedication to the craft of lhotography to capture the scenes displayed in his works. He has traveled extensive- ly throughout the western United States and Canada photographing the land- scapes and scenery, captur- ing what he calls the "art of today that may be gone to- morrow." Hyman believes the use of film allows him to capture the realism he strives for in his works and is adamant that he does not, and will not, use digital methods for his photogra- phy. On view now through Au- gust, Hyman's exhibit fea- tures some of the hidden gems he has discovered exploring the historic back- roads in search of interest- ing bits of lost history and recording them on film for posterity's sake, as well as examples of his studies of the graffiti found on trains that run through the Feath- er River Canyon and be- yond. Hyman invites everyone to view his work of rural landscapes, scenery and rail- road graffiti at the Plumas County Museum, which is located at 500 Jackson St. in downtown Quincy. The mu- seum is open Tuesday - Sat- urday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and can be reached at 283-6320 for more information. Museum receives gift of organ "Visited the "Kentuck'.' lately?" ask Kentucky Mine and Museum staffers. "Think it's the same old, same Qld? Think again and get yourself up to the mine museum to see the new/old artifacts we are continually adding to our fas- cinating collection." Right now, employees are proud to display a beautifully carved Miller organ that was recently donated to the muse- um through the "efforts of Frank Lang, of Downievi]le. The organ dates from around 1880 and was used in a home in Sierra City. In addition to being a unique musical instrument from the past, with a little pumping of the toot pedals, it's still capable of making beautiful music. Visitors to the Kentucky Mine County Park nestled in the pine trees just off High- way 49 outside Sierra City are invited to ask about an- other recent acquisition-- an adze. What is an adze? It's the tool that was used to smooth and carve rough-cut wood in hand-woodworking. The in- credible Douglas fir timbers used to build the best-in:the- west stamp mill at the Kentucky Mine were hand- hewn using an adze. To see the.timbers and the adze that created these beautiful giant timbers, visitors can take a tour of the Ken- tucky Mine Park. The park is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tour times are 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. "Come on up to see us because there's always some- thing old that's new to the Kentucky Mine and Muse- um," say employees.
