2A Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010 Feather River Bulletin FRC student competes for big stage spot Susan Meeker Colusa Sun Herald Morgan Bressler, a fresh- man at Feather River Col- lege studying agriculture and working toward a de- gree in equine studies, has been chosen to compete in the finals for the National FFA Organization. Morgan Bressler is a 2010 Colusa High School graduate and one of only 10 people chosen to compete for the National FFA Proficiency Award in grain production- entrepreneurship. "I'm pretty excited about go- ing," Bressler said. "I've com- peted at the national conven- tion before, so it's an honor." The National FFA Organi- zation was previously known as Future Farmers of America. It's 83rd national convention, held Oct. 20-23 in Indianapolis, is one of the largest annual student con- ventions in the country. Bressler was a member of the Colusa FFA Chapter all four years of high school, which he said was tremen- dous in preparing him for leadership and a career in the science, business and technology of agriculture. "FFA has really given me the knowledge to run my own business," he said. Bressler has been farming rice and corn on his own the past four years. During his freshman year in FFA, Bressler farmed 60 acres of milo, a grain used in the U.S. for livestock feed. Bressler became eligible for the national award after winning the California FFA competition earlier this year. The grain production en- trepreneurship award is one of 47 proficiency program ar- eas FFA members can par- ticipate in to develop valu- able experience and leader- ship skills at the local, state and national levels. The proficiency awards recognize outstanding stu- dent achievement in agribusiness gained thor- ough the establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or gain- ing hands-on career experi- ence, according to the Na- tional FFA Organization. About 55,000 FFA members and guests from across the country are expected to at- tend the national convention. Members participate in general sessions, competi- tive events, educational tours, leadership workshops, volunteer activities and a ca- reer show and exposition. Bressler, who believes he will be the only competitor in rice production, said he will spend the first day of the convention in personal in- terviews, and must be select- ed into the top four to com- pete on stage. Bressler is the son of Terry and D'Ann Bressler of Colusa. Reprinted with permission from Tri-County Newspapers. SEPTEMBER STOREWIDE .

A workshop will take place Thursday, Sept. 30, in Zivnus- ka Hall at the U.C. Forestry Camp in Meadow Valley. The workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. The workshop will feature presentations by foresters, wildlife biologists and envi- ronmental specialists who will describe prescriptions and best management prac- tices for achieving reduced forest fuel load while main- taining and potentially en- hancing habitat for wildlife. General wildlife considera- tions will be covered along with the special needs associ- ated with animal and plant species listed as Threatened and Endangered or otherwise sensitive under state and fed- eral regulations. A field trip to observe and discuss alternative manage- ment treatments will be in- cluded during the afternoon of the workshop. The workshop is intended for foresters, contractors and agency personnel in- volved in the planning and implementation of fuel man- agement projects. Fire Safe Council staff or members developing or imple- menting Community Wildfire Protection Plans will benefit by learning ways to incorpo- rate wildlife best management practices into their Communi- ty Wildfire Protection Plans. The program will also be of interest to landowners who are considering or already un- dertaking fuel reduction treat- ments on their properties. There is a program fee of $25 to cover refreshments and handout materials. Pre-registra- tion is required before Sept. 24. Registration is limited to the first 40 people, so early registration is recommended. Register online at: or call 283-6270. Call Cooperative Ex- tension Natural Resources Advisor Mike De Lasaux at 283-6125 for more information. The workshop is sponsored by the University of California Cooperative Extension, USDA Forest Service State and Pri- vate Forestry Program, Sierra Nevada Conservancy, Depart- ment of Fish and Game, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Northern California Coop- erative Extension. 00lmanor organizes Blue Star Morns M. Kate West Chester Editor "We are looking for moms, families and friends who have loved ones in the military to join the new chapter of Blue Star Morns we are forming in Chester to serve Plumas County and Westwood," said Ann Cordero. She said a more formalized group would provide an opportunity to not only sup- port one another and loved ones in the military but veter- ans as well. She said the basic premise of the chapters is support and service. "Wives, other family mem- bers and friends are also wel- come to join the chapter as as- sociates," she added. Chapter activities could in- clude welcoming soldiers re- turning from overseas at the airport; sending care pack- ages; participating in parades and showing support for the troops; collecting Christmas and other holiday cards to send to the troops; adopting individual soldiers and units stationed overseas; participat- ing in American Legion and other veterans' organization; and supporting wounded sol- diers and their families. The new chapter would be called Blue Star Moms of Almanor. The first meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. in Chester Memorial Hall, on the corner of Stone and Gay streets, one block off Main Street in Old Town Chester.
