P t0s by C0 s / By Dave Keller Sta W er A football program would be the best way to stabilize falling enrollment right away at Feather River Col- lege, a new study says. Under the plan, the college would field a team in 2002, with hopes of drawing 50 or more student players to the school. But, before anyone can line up for a kickoff, the pro- posal must get the backing of the college's budget commit- tee, its instructors, President Susan Carroll and the board of trustees. That scrutiny, while seen as essential to softening re- sistance among some of the instructors, could produce some uncertainty if it takes too long. In order to recruit enough players to start the program, a coach needs to be hired no later than January, the study says. According to Paul Thein, dean of student services, the college needs to reverse the decline in enrollment, which has fallen sharply during the past three years. The study, called "Proposal for Core Enrollment Growth Through Athletics," says that using sports as a draw has been effective at other colleges. "We want to bring back the students we've lost," Theln said during a Oct. I0 public meeting. The purpose of the meet- ing was to gauge the senti- ment of the faculty, students and others involved with the college. The proposal has drawn opposition from some of the instructors, who argue that the college has shifted its em- phasis from academics to athletics. Some instructors also are troubled that they will be. asked to alter their sched- ules to accommodate prac- tices. And others are offended that football is being used to boost enrollment at a college r- mU l, Imp l{Nt Office closes Due to a company meet- ing on Wednesday, Oct. 24, the Feather Publishing of- fice in Quincy will be closed fl'om 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. featured Page 48 Page 8B Quincy and Portola renew rivalry See page 1G.

And, if all goes well, an agreement could be reached which means more water and more money for the county. Antonio Rossman, the county's water attorney, met with the board of supervi- sors in closed session earlier this month to discuss the de- taUs of the agreement. In an interview following the meeting, Rossman said he was hopeful that the medi- ated settlement could be ap- proved by all involved by the end of the month, with a final agreement signed by the end of the year. "We need to respond simul. taneously in a matter of weeks," Rossman said. "We" is Plumas County and its two co-plaintiffs, the Planning and Conservation League, and the Citizens Planning Association of San. ta Barbara; and the defen- dants, the Department of Wa- ter Resources and its major water contractors. Plumas County's water saga began in 1995, when at- torney Michael Jackson told the supervisors about the Monterey Agreement--a lit- tle-publicized pact between the Department of Water Re- sources and its major water contractors. The agreement, so named for where the parties met, had serious ramifications for how water was to be allOcat- ed between urban and agri- cultural users. It also promised to deliver water that wasn't available and transferred management of a groundwater bank from the state to the Kern County Wa- ter Agency. Because more water is promised than can be deliv- ered, Plumas County officials feared that area.of-origin rights could be in jeopardy. They wanted assurance in writing that those rights would be maintained. Don Long, a representative of the Department of Water Resources, met with the su- pervisors back in 1995, but said no contract was neces- sary to protect rights that were already "constitutional- ly protected." The supervisors also want- ed the agreement to acknowl- edge the link between the wa- tershed and downstream wa- ter uses. Specifically, the su- pervisors wanted compensa- tion for maintaining a water- shed because a properly maintained watershed means an increase in quantity and quality of water. When the Monterey Agree- ment was not altered, Plumas County Joined with the two environmental organizations and challenged the agree- ment in court. The trio said the agreement should be overturned because the envi-
