4A Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 Feather River Bulletin PUSD announces Fresh Start Program Because of ongoing challenges with outstanding lunch account balances, Plumas Unified School District is offering all families with an outstanding balance as of Aug. 13 a one-time-only option to participate in the Fresh Start Program. This year only, 50 percent of such balances may be forgiven if families complete a 2014-15 free and reduced-price meal application and submit it with their payment. The application and payment are due to the food services office by Sept. 30. District personnel understand that large balances owed may be difficult to pay in full so they urge affected families to take advantage of this one-time-only opportunity. Those who continue to accrue charges without making payments will have their accounts referred to the Plumas Unified School District Collections Department. Personnel strongly encourage payments be made by check, as it is the safest way to ensure the correct payment gets applied to the student&apos;s account. Requests for help in Calculating the 50 percent rate may be directed to the food services department. The department wants to help bring all accounts up to date as quickly as possible. The 2014-15 free and reduced-price meal application can be downloaded at or picked up at either the district office or the front office of any school.

Manager Composing Manager m i +=+1 <+ Member, California Newpaber David Beavers has been extended to.Oct. 30. The fundraiser was scheduled to end in September; however, Beavers' injuries have made it impossible for him to return to work. Beavers, a Ferrellgas technician, suffered second- and third-degree burns on June 2 after a routine gas tank exchange resulted in a massive explosion. The tragic event prompted community members to host fundraising events and set up donation accounts to aid in his recovery. Beavers has been using the donations to pay for medical garments not covered by the Division of Workers' Compensation. Only two-thirds of his lost wages are covered, and according to his mom, Denise Sassman, Beavers will soon be relying on donations to help him cover his daily expenses. Beavers does not know when he will be physically capable of returning to work. Donations can be made online by searching for Beavers' name at, or by emailing his mom at blondedj_1961@yahoo .com. Sassman and Beavers thanked the communities of Lassen and Plumas counties for all their support during this difficult time. "It is so heart-warming to see the community come forward and help my son," said Sassman. "David and the family feel truly blessed. Being a single mom there is only so much financial assistance I can extend, and the community has helped lift some of the weight from naY,shoulders i  so I can concenfrate on helping him through his recovery."
