Why the bonus for doing the job CEO was hired to do? The CEO is getting a salary, is she not? Agenda after agenda, there is one member that seems to spend a great deal of time in Colorado and must attend via telephone. Where does Rich Rydell really live? Then there's Dr. Walls who works for the district and is on the board. I am not sure how that works, but neither of these things seem right to me. I think it's time to get rid of the old guard, including this CEO and start fresh with people that really care about all of the people in the district and our health and can work in a transparent manner. Amy Cleaver Chester Not a one-way If anyone else was eager to get some separation from SoCal when they read: "Decision coming on dividing California into three states," in the Sept. 12 edition from Feather Publishing, I hate to break it to you, but the State Supreme Court ruled against Prop. 9 on July 18. Perhaps you have a faulty Internet connection? The headline and article: "Portola gets good deal on services," in the Indian Valley Record also seemed to be one-sided. It has been nearly 50 years since the City of Portola transitioned from having their own Chief of Police to contracting with the county for law-enforcement services. It was about the same time frame that the Portola Reporter changed to the current format. One aspect of the Sheriffs contract that was overlooked is that the City provides the office, electricity, heat etc. for the Sheriffs sub-station. Deputies in Portola aren't constrained by the city limits; driving time is just 2 min. to Delleker, 5 rain. to Beckwourth, to Maybe it might be 5 rain. or maybe less, and 15 to 20 min. to Gold Mountain, Clio, Graeagle, Mohawk or Blairsden. Please note that properties outside the city limits would pay full price on taxes and are entitled to law-enforcement services. Property owners within city limits pay 51 percent to the county (something I learned from the article) and I assume the remainder to the city. The article seemed to infer that the revenue generated by that 51 percent of property taxes barely covered the costs of maintaining the library and senior meals. Do people read and eat that much more in Portola? Another point to be considered is that one regular LTE writer in the Lake Davis area pointed out years ago that the fees for LAFCo were split 50-50 between the county and the city. In a county with ten cities, each city would be responsible for just 5 percent of the total fees. But in the unique situation of one small city in the entire county it might be to the county's advantage. Gene Nielsen Crescent Mills On the Supreme Court nominee Despite those who proclaim Mr. Kavanaugh to be 'superbly qualified' (which may be true for the type of court desired by these claimants) his legal e pertise is not in question. However, far more than legal expertise will be needed if we are to acquire any respect for this court. The Warren court received criticism for being too politically biased in favor of civil rights and for what became known as a liberal agenda. The Bush/Kerry decision in the 2000 Florida fiasco, and the incredible leap into corporate power enhancement in the Citizens United decision of 2012, has shown us consecutive courts that have been biased in the extreme: PLUMAS COUNTY SUPERVISORS - 520 Main Street, Room 309, Quincy, CA 95971; (530) 283-6170; FAX: (530) 283-6288; E-Mail: Individual supervisors can be e-mailed from links on the county website: PRESIDENT - Donald J.

It was essentially a court that was biased in favor of the people's interest. The current court is a court of sustainment for inequitable wealth and corporate power. It is only within the context of this later court that Kavanaugh's legal expertise could ever be viewed as 'superbly qualified'. Wallace B. Eshleman Quincy Sinking ship Anyone watching the news these days must see the United States government is in crisis. The Trump administration is a sinking ship. It's going to be fun watching these Republican representatives and senators abandoning ship as rats are know to do. Who will be first? The funny part is, the Democratic National Committee put Trump in office when they torpedoed Bernie Sanders in favor of Hilleary Clinton. I believe Sanders would be president today but for that treachery. Anyway it's entertaining watching capitalism coming apart at the seams. Frank Kortangian Democratic Socialist Graeagle Truth Does the truth matter? My mother thought so and she let me know. I tried to teach my kids to be truthful and honest. I thought it was important. But our Republican leaders have another view. KeUyanne Conway said there were "alternative facts"; Rudy Giuliani said, "truth isn't truth"; and President Trump says, "don't believe what you see or read"; and he thinks the news media is the "enemy of the people." Holy crap. These people are leading the country and trying to make fools of us all. We can change that with the coming election. You can vote for Doug LaMaifa and continue the insanity, the fall of America into a cesspool of corruption or you can vote for Audrey Denny and return America to the people. Don McKechnle Sierraville, Social injustice There is a chasm between socialism and social justice. The Merriam Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary defines socialism as "Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods." Although there has been a long history in the western world of attempts to apply any of these theories with substantial support going back to the end of the French Revolution, there is no important progressive politician in recent American politics who is proposing socialism. Bernie Sanders, who cries out for social justice, sees himself as a strong Roosevelt Democrat. Roosevelt instigated many social justice programs that have kept our economy afloat during economic setbacks, kept people from starving and secured the worker's retirement years. He kept investors from losing everything during a banking crisis and helped farmers keep their farms by expanding Hoover's subsidy programs. As an outspoken socialist, Norman Thomas thought Roosevelt was too capitalistic and ran against Roosevelt's Democratic ticket four times, netting almost a million votes in 1932. Thomas also ran against Hoover in 1928 and Truman in 1946. Thomas engaged in a congenial broadcast debate with Barry Goldwater in 1964. Even though the Scandinavian countries are thought of as socialistic societies, the prime minister of the most progressive of the three, protests when his country is called socialistic. Any decent society should have programs that give all its people safety nets. There is no justification for poverty nor justification for suffering from lack of decent medical programs. Salvatore Catalano Taylorsville Plumas County. This portion of the river contains Class III, IV and V rapids, which are only appropriate for skilled paddlers, and not appropriate for tubing. The Rock Creek Reach is the 8.3-mile portion of the North Fork of the Feather River in the Plumas National Forest between PG&E's Rock Creek dam and the Rock Creek powerhouse near Storrie. Prior to the scheduled increase for Sept. 22 and 23, flows in .the Rock Creek Reach will be at about 450 cubic feet per second (cfs). On Saturday, Sept. 22, flows will gradually increase to 900 cfs by 9 a.m. The flows will be held at 900 cfs until about 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 23, then gradually reduced back t about 450 cfs. The recreational flows are done in cooperation with American Whitewater and the Rock Creek-Cresta Ecological Resource Committee and are usually done four weekends a year in summer. PG&E offers the following water safety tips: Sudden immersion in cold water can stimulate the "gasp reflex," causing an involuntary inhalation of air or water. It can even trigger cardiac arrest, temporary paralysis, hypothermia and drowning. When faced with swift water, even the strongest swimmers may be easily overwhelmed. Many unseen obstacles can be lurking below the water's surface. Swift water can make these obstacles even more treacherous. Guided trips for inexperienced paddlers are recommended. Recreating in PG&E canals and flumes is strictly prohibited. Stay out of canals and flumes, which are very dangerous due to slippery sides, sub-surface obstacles, fast moving water and transitions to full tunnels and pipes.
