School I-Iealth Mert This is to let you know that we have at our school a few children who are "immune compromised" or that have a younger sibling in the home that is immune compromised. This is due to a chronic illness or due to chemotherapy that the child is receiving. Illnesses such as chicken pox, measles, flu, whooping cough and strep throat are dangerous to these children and can quickly become life threatening. C! iqken Pox (varicella) in particular is very dangerous and life threatening to these children. It is important that you notify the school nurse if you suspect that your child has chicken pox. With your help we hope to help protect these children from serious illness.

National Science Foundation funds local astronomy project For the past year and half three Plumas County communities -- Greenville, Quincy and Portola -- along with 11 other communities in California and Nevada, have been participating in the pilot of a citizen-science research project aimed at exploring the outer solar system. The Research and Education Cooperative Occultation Network project involves teachers, students, amateur astronomers and community members in conducting coordinated telescope observations to measure the sizes of objects from a region of the solar system beyond Neptune called the Kuiper Belt. Based on the achievements of the pilot project, the National Science Foundation has awarded a five-year grant to expand RECON to include over 40 telescope sites stretching across the entire western United States from the Canadian to the Mexican borders. Observations from this expanded network will shed new light on the size and compositions of these distant objects to help better understand the origins of our solar system. For more information about the RECON project visit Those in Plumas County who would like to learn about the RECON project can enroll in an eight-week community education course at Feather River College that begins Thursday evening, Oct. 2. Participants in the class will learn how to use the telescope and the other observational equipment, and they will be able to participate in the ongoing research. The class will be led by Charles Arrowsmith, the astronomy instructor at FRC, with assistance from the participating Quincy, Greenville and Portola high school teachers who have been actively involved in the project. Registration for the course is $20; forms and information are available online at community-ed.cfm. Feather Publishing has an immediate opening for a full-time sports editor.
