"That puts us nearly past the halfway mark," relays Roxanne Valladao Plumas Arts director. "Final cost estimates make it look like it will cost us closer to $80,000, a bit more than we originally thought." Diego Lozano produced a video that has been making its way around Facebook and YouTube. It can be viewed at http://bit.ly/lnXEynr. "It truly speaks to our case," adds Valladao. "The public is invited to pass the video around to help in the collection of more donations."

The nonfiction will be separated by subject category, and volunteers will be available to assist shoppers during the sale. Gently used book donations are always appreciated.

Since the fair was expanded to five days, we have tried to have the carnival open in the evening. Due to a variety of reasons, includin labor laws, the carnival will not operate on Wednesday. On Thursday, the carnival will open at noon for Kids' Day and all kids 15 and under will receive a two-for-one coupon for soda or cotton candy from the carnival food booth. Those coupons will be handed out at the front gate.

NANCY You wear a hat decked out in daisy chains Now freshly picked before the morning sun Had time to dry the drops of recent rains That grace the petals, each and every one. Your face beneath the hat is china white But roses blush your cherub-rounded cheeks And with your laugh, there is no earthly light As bright and voice so mellow when you speak. Your gown is but a loosely fitted dress That shimmers when you take a step to me, And when you open up your arms to press Against my heart, I know eternity. I feel the beauty of your tender, perfumed skin, But sense the greater beauty of your soul within. Salvatore (Sam) Catalano Written for her birthday on September 13, some Unknown yearsag. ..........
