Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014 158 Mountain Harvest Festival to feature musicians with local roots The llth annual Mountain Harvest Festival on Saturday, Oct. 18, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds provides a wide selection of craft beers and organic and sustainable wines for tasting. It is also an event that brings many people home to visit friends and family and enjoy the amazing color of a High Sierra fall, say organizers. This year the event welcomes home a musician that got a solid footing in his music career in Plumas County. Matt Heyden began his adventure as a vocalist in . local shows including The Soul Juke Box, Words & Music and in a number of local musical groups. For Mountain Harvest he brings his new band, The LoLos, to headline the event. The LoLos are an indie rock/pop band out of Chico. The common thread throughout the music is that it's all a bit dark, weird, bold, romantic and tongue in cheek -- just like the musicians. They draw from many genres, including soul, blues, Americana and old-world styles like waltzes, tangos and circus marches. The LoLos released "The Maiden EP" in 2012, and their first full-length album, "XOXO," online for "choose your own price" in 2013. They are currently working on their third release. The LoLos will perform at 3 p.m., right after Stone Soup serves up a dizzying concoction of rock, blues, reggae and funk from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The Mountain Harvest Festival is also one of the primary fundraising events for the multifaceted nonprofit cultural organization Plumas Arts. Tasting passes include event admission and a tasting glass and are $35 general admission or $30 for Plumas Arts members. Non-tasting event admission at the door is $10 or $5 for Plumas Arts members. Tickets are on sale at Plumas Arts or online. Call 283-3402 for more details. For more event information check the website. The LoLos feature Matt Heyden, right, who got his musical start in Plumas County. They will play at the upcoming Mountain Harvest Festival.

We have been trying for 15 years to draw this once-in-a-lifetime hunt. My concern is that the U.S.' Forest Service has closed a big portion of this area because of the Rim Fire and the E1 Portal Fire. Is there anything that the California Department of Fish and Wildlife can do to get these closed areas open? We don't want to exchange our tags for the G37 hunt; we would like the USFS to open the closed areas that are in the G37 zone that burned. We and the other hunters would appreciate whatever CDFW can do for us. Thank you. --Dennis and Brnt S. iAnswer: Urffortunltely,! ' there's nothing we can do to require them to reopen the burned area. The fire closures are implemented whenever the USFS decides they are warranted. The best we can do is to refer you to the USFS district office so you can talk directly to those making the decisions. That might be your best hope. And regarding your tags, even if you did wart to exchange your tags, there are no refunds for deer tags. There are no exchanges for premium tags either. We can exchange restricted and unrestricted deer tags provided the following: 1) the earliest season for their zone has not already started, 2) tag quota for the tag they want to exchange is not yet filled, 3) tags remain in the zone they want to exchange for and 4) you pay the current exchange fee. For more details, please check California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 708.140). Unreturned lobster card Question: I did not return my lobster card last season, and I would like to know how/where I can pay my fine so I can get another card for this coming season. Answer: When you go to purchase your 2014-15 lobster report card, the clerk should tell you that you need to pay your $20 non-return fee first. After paying this fee, you should be able to purchase CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife your new lobster report card. Nonlead for hunting Question: I won a G12 deer tag this year (either sex shotgun only, Gray Lodge Wildlife Area). Because this is a popular waterfowl hunting area, am I legally allowed to use lead slugs or do I need to use nonlead slugs? " Philipp K. Answer: Yes, you may use lead slugs. In 2014, the use of lead slugs to hunt on state wildlife areas is not prohibited. However, this may be the last year that you can use lead ammunition for big game at the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area. In 2013, Assembly Bill 711 was approved by the governor and chaptered into law by the secretary of state. AB 711 added several sections to the Fish and Game Code, one of which, (3005.5(b)), requires a complete ban on the use of lead ammunition when taking wildlifefor any purposes anywhere in the state by July 1, 2019. This section also requires the Fish and Game Commission to develop a phase-in regulation by July 1, 2015, designed to impose the least burden on California's hunters while still implementing the intent of the law. For more information regarding implementation of AB 711, please go to hunting/lead-free. Carrie Wilson is a marine environmental scientist with the California Department ofFish and Wildlife.
