S O N L Y ON L \ By Alicla Higbee indian Valley Chamber of Commerce High school juniors and se- niors are invited to camp out in Greenville for five days during a free Internet Day Camp at the Roundhouse Council beginning Wednes- day, Aug. 22. Each "camper" will be giv- en a free Web site and will learn how to write basic HTML. Campers will also learn how to work with profession- al graphics software, like Photoshop. Lessons will include using a scanner, a digital camera and other computer hard- ware and software. Students will have fun while learning how to maxi- mize their use of the Internet for school work and job searching. The class will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., each of the five days, and will end Tuesday, Aug. 28. The Internet Day Camp will be run by Americorps VISTA (Volunteers in Ser- vice to America) volunteer Daniel Ambrose, a recent transplant to Quincy from the suburbs of New Jersey. Ambrose graduated from Rutgers University, where he majored in fine arts, and he spent a summer studying in the mountains of central Italy His love of creating steel sculpture took a back seat to his desire to work with com- puters, though, and he has just come from two years of developing Web pages in New York City. Although Ambrose is one of those people who loves New York, he said Plumas County is outstanding. He especially noted that the people of Plumas County were more polite than city people as a whole. tte said people in the cities are nloFe likely to be cop,- sumed by their careers than are their rural counterparts, who seem to be more worried about their family life. For now, Ambrose is enjoy- ing his stay to the fullest. He is not only running the Internet Day Camp, he will also be teaching several other computer classes to adults and students throughout the county. As a VISTA volunteer, he is one of many former students who are giving a year of their lives to fight poverty in America. For 35 years, Americorps VISTA members have been helping to bring communities and individuals out of pover- ty. There are about 6,000 vol- unteers serving hundreds of nonprofit organizations and public agencies throughout the country. They work to fight illitera- cy, improve health services, create businesses, increase housing opportunities and bridge the digital divide. And, to help bridge that di- vide, Ambrose is willing to custom-fit computer classes to the communities of Plumas County. Now, it is up to residents to call and tell him or Marlene Multen what kind of comput- er classes they would like to take. For example, one person has already requested a class for adults that is similar to the Internet Day Camp. Ambrose needs at least three more adults who are in- terested in the class, which would probably meet for two hours, one evening per week, for six weeks. Others have expressed in- terest in classes that help them learn to use software, such as Word and Excel. To register for the Internet Day Camp, or to request oth- er computer classes, call 28 6B66. cherokee Country 4 Dr, 4X4 a/c, power windows locks, SALE Windstar Van a/c, power windows, Wheel, cruise, am/fro stereo/ M0y wheels. #248594 SALE .Ranger XLT Supercob a/c, power cass., CO, alloy wheels. #B19792 SALE Explorer Ltd 4X4 , trans.m, a/c, power windows, cr=se, am/fro stereo/ ik A 91"51" , moonroof, SALE Dakota Club Cob 4X4 .v.ans., a/c, power steering, kx:ks, whe, mr./ca=., SALE -'~. w136076 ! ! !
