Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 7B The Plumas-Sierra County Fair was a family affair for the Wood family of Quincy. Mom Lucinda, above, won first place, best of division and best of show in the profes- sional watercolor landscape and seascape competition for her "Prince's Plume and Claret" (bottom right) and second place in the same category for "The Unveiling" (middle). Daughter Sylvia, 9, took a red ribbon in the fourth- to sixth-grade painting competition with her water- color snow scene, and also found time to bake a blue- ribbon-winning apple pie. Not to be left out, teenage brother Brian earned first place for junior high poetry with "Let it Burn" and two blue ribbons and one red one with various pencil drawings.
