Driving this week's activity was a 10- event sequence west of Chester near the junction of HWYs 32/36. It occurred- between Thursday and Sunday. The law gest event measured M 1.8. Felt? A robust earthquake swarm was recoded by the University of Nevada, Reno's Seismological Laboratory in north- ern Washoe County, Nevada near Calcutta (Dry) Lake. It occurred about 15 miles south of the Idaho border in Long Valley. It began the previous week with a dozen events and surged into high gear this week. At least 87 earthquakes have been recorded, including a pair of M 3s and 27 M 2s, and the actMty was ongoing at the end of this reporting period. It is likely the activity is happening on !he Long Valley fault zone, a series of west-facing normal faults that creates a series of linear dry lake beds on the down-dropped side.

Soccer clinic Jeren Seibel, of the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District, gives instruction to the young soccer players of last week's soccer camp held at Feather River College. The camp, for ages 5 - 17, gave 70 young athletes a chance to hone their skills before the upcoming fall seasons start up. Signups for the fall season for 15 and under will be available at the beginning of August. Those interested in enrolling their children in a fall soccer program can call the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District at 283-3278.

Registration is free. The theme of the week is "Living in Community as God's Children" and each day focuses on a Bible story associated with this theme. Daffy sub-themes are as follows: Monday: Trust. Abraham trusted the Lord. Zebra foals trust their community to keep them safe. Tuesday: Love. Joseph and his brothers reconcile. Red colobus monkeys love their offspring. Wednesday: Follow. Jesus calls his disciples and us to follow. Elephant babies and adults follow a single herd leader. Thursday: Care. The good Samaritan cares for a stranger. Meerkats care for strangers, letting other species share their burrows. Friday: Share. Philip shared his faith with an Ethiopian. Giraffes share nursery duty, taking turns caring for young calves. The children will also learn about Madagascar and the baobab tree, which is called the "tree of life" because it is capable of providing shelter. food and water for animal and human inhabitants. Each day, children will be divided according to age group and will participate in a variety of activities: Bible stories, creative crafts, science projects, games, danceable music and snack time. Throughout the week, participants will be collecting change to fight malaria in sub-Saharan Africa (which includes Madagascar). "Imagine No Malaria" is a campaign of the United Methodist Church that seeks to beat malaria once and for all. Money received will be spent on bed nets, communication, health facilities and education. For Bible school preregistration, contact the Community United Methodist Church at 283-1740.
