Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 11A Portola City Councilman Curt McBride stands beside his car. "Fallen Ones," painted in honor of those who have died in service to their country. He drove the vehicle in the Railroad Days parade and recently was one of nearly 6,000 vehicles on display during Reno's Hot August Nights. He is proud to have received one of the 40 celebrity awards given out at that event. His was given the Washoe County district attorney award. Photo by Debra Moore After the last vehicle parades down Commercial Street Satur- day morning, the crowds shift to Portola City Park for an after- noon of fun, food and games. There were a variety of commer- cial vendors, but the longest lines seemed to form in front of the Lions' barbecue and the Rotary's bounce house.

The intensity of seismicity was about normal, but recorded the first M 3* in six weeks. The largest earthquake registering M 3.5 and occurred at 3:18 p.m. Tuesday afternoon about 52 miles north- northeast of Rung at the northern mar- gin of Pyramid Lake. It was followed by a south of Fernley to north of Pyramid Lake.
