Two quakes registered in the M 2 range and both occurred in the Lake Almanor- Lassen Peak area. The largest measured M 2.3 and occurred at 10:44 p.m. Thurs- day, August 15, at the base of Mount Harkness in Warner Valley. Earthquake activity along the Warner Valley fault zone has increased since the Canyon- dam M 5.3 earthquake in May 2013 and this is the strongest in a few months. A quake registering M 2.1 was recorded at 3:50 a.m. Thursday morning at the southeastern shore of Lake Almanor. It occurred in the Canyondam aftershock zone. A number of small quakes were detected along the Calif0rnia-Nevada border between Doyle and Lake Tahoe, including a series of five events north- east of Truckee in the Carson Range. The Northern Washoe County earth- quake swarm increased substantially. Rev. Stephen Borlang reappointed pastor of St. John's Parish Laura Beaton Staff Writer The Rev. Stephen Borlang was reappointed pastor of St. John's Parish in Quincy and the mission parish, St. Anthony's in Greenville, on July 1. He previously served the two churches 17 years ago. Borlang was born and raised in a small mountain town not unlike Quincy in northern New York state in 1952. At age 18 he converted from Lutheranism to the Catholic faith, graduated from high school and attended one year at Adirondack Community College. After learning Norwegian, he spent some time working in Norway followed by a year at the bishop's residence in Reykjavik, Iceland, discerning a vocation to the priesthood. One year later, he began six years of philosophical and theological studies at St. Patrick's Seminary in Thurles, Ireland. He was ordained a deacon in 1985 and finished a year of deaconate formation at St. Ansgar Church in Niendorf, Germany. Borlang was ordained a priest in October 1986 at the The Rev. Stephen Borlang Cathedral of Christ the King, Reykjavik, Iceland, and served that parish until his commissioning as a U.S. Air Force chaplain for 13 years. He served in Operation Restore Hope (Haitian refugee work) in Guantanamo, Cuba, and Somalia. Returning to the Diocese of Sacramento, he has served the past 11 years as pastor of St. Vincent's Parish, Vallejo. Borlang says, "It's great to be back in Quincy and I look forward to meeting everyone!" All are invited to attend an ice cream social and meet or reacquaint themselves with Borlang in the parish backyard following the 5 p.m. mass Saturday, Sept. 6.
