"It's my project, but I'm getting a lot of support from her," Edwards said of Segura. She is dubbing it "Be Ready; Success for All." In addition to presenting each student with a binder, complete with dividers, as well as pens, pencils and paper on the first day of school, Edwards hopes to collect enough supplies to help students throughout the school year. While Edwards is confident that she has enough binders and dividers, she is seeking the public's help with pens, pencils and paper -- specifically lined, three-ring punched paper-- that can be put into a binder. "Reams of three-ring paper would be the most helpful," Edwards said. Donations can be dropped off at the high sch6ol office. Debra Moore Staff Writer dmoore@plumasnews.com ency Plumas County supervisors received $245,482 in Title III funds this year, and last week they spent it. Faced with four requests that totaled nearly $100,000 more than they had to give, the supervisors studied their options Aug. 12. Initially it appeared that all four applications would be cut significantly, but then the supervisors ]earned that there was a $75,000 carryover from last year, which could be reallocated, offsetting all but $25,000. Title III funds are part of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000. (See sidebar for more .details.) Following are the entities that were funded: --Plumas County Office of Emergency Services for wildElre prevention: asked for and received $90,000. --Plumas County Sheriff Search and Rescue: asked for and received $25,000. --Plumas County Sheriff OES radio tower and vault project: asked for $130,482 and received $130,541. --Plumas County Fire Safe Council coordination 2016- 18: asked for $100200 and received zero. But it's not as drastic as it appears. The supervisors told Ntis Lander, who was representing the f]re safe council, to apply for the reallocation of the $75,000. The supervisors had contemplated cutting an amount from each of the requests until Lander said the fire safe commun council's request was for future years' funding. Last year the supervisors approved $135,000 for the sheriffs OES communication system, $25,000 for search and rescue, $75200 for OES' wildhre prevention and $37,484 for the senior-disabled defensible space assistance program. While using Title III funds to purchase equipment fails into a gray area, Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia said it's necessary for the success of search and rescue. "It's so important to have radio communication," he said. "If you can't call a helicopter, you might as well wait for the inevitable to happen." Part of the process of updating communication equipment involves acquiring the property to site towers. Canalia explained that mountaintops are in demand because companies want to erect their own cell towers. Plumas has an opportunity to secure a site, but time is critical. "We have been working on this for three years," he said. "It's a unique opportunity." Sheriff Greg Hagwood added that 99 percent of all search and rescue calls are on Forest Service land, so the use of Title III funds would seem appropriate. "I think it's worth the element of risk," Supervisor Sherrie • Thrall said. District wants input on embezzlement case Samantha P.

Reichle said he will be working under the supervision of the district's lawyer, Gregory Einhorn, to help establish restitution against former general manager Leanna May Moore.

She faces 10 years in prison plus fme8 and restitution that are expected to exceed $1 million. Moore, who is free on $100,000 bail, is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 12 in Plumas County Superior Court in Quincy.
