The purpose of scoping is to deter- mine what will be covered and in what detail, in the environmental analysis. The scoping period wilt end on November 1,2001. The project area is approximately 2 air miles northwest of Portola on National Forest System lands, in Management Area 32 (PetTm~n Peak). It i~ w~'m all 6r parts of T22N, R12E; T22N, R13E; T23N, R12E; and T~N, R13E. Proposed actions include: Reducing the potential for crown fire spread by treating aerial, ladder and surface tuels by the creation of approximately 17 miles ot DFPZ, as described in the Herger-Feinstein Quincy Library Group Forest Recovery Act EIS. Treatments over the approximately 3,335 acres will include biomass harvesting, hand thinning, hand and machine piling, pile burning, and underbuming. Constructing approximately 2 miles ol tem- porary road, which will be obliterated after project completion. Relocation of approximately 6 miles of sys- tem roads, out ol drainages, while continuing to maintain access. A decision on this project is expected by late s~ng 2002. An evening meeting will be held at the Portola Veteran's Hall on November 7, 2001 to acquaint the public with this project and oth- ers in the planning process and to solicit input on project design. Comments can be made in writing, by phone, or at the public meeting.

Published FRB, PR Oct. 17, 2001 way 70 near the railroad tun- nel close to Massack, the heat from the wooden structure was too hot for firefighters to approach. Flames danced to heights of 20 feet, climbed trees, and bit into the wood, as it drew life from not only the old house, but the dry timber and glass. Dividing the job, crews from the Mr. Hough Ranger District took control of the fire, building line and spray- ing water to contain the inci- dent. The railroad tracks were a natural barrier on one side of the fire, and crews chose that as one of the defense areas. Quincy Fire Department firefighters extinguished burning areas in bushes and willow groves. But the house, owned by Gilbert Lumans, was beyond saving by the time they arrived. Lumans didr/'t in the house at the time of the fire, but lives in Quincy. According to Quincy Fire Chief Andy Anderson, the .fire is still under investiga- tion. Fireflghters from two units joined forces once again as they reported to the scene of a house fire that spread to the surrounding forest, it was a deja vu call as they returned to an area off Highway 70 near Massack, that many of the firefighters had reported to early in the summer. Then, no homes were in- volved, but the forest floor was blackened. Photos by Victoria Metcalf II Over 2 million women in th U.S. are breast cancer survivors. Breast cancer can be easily detected in women 40 and older with a low dose X-ray procedure called a mammogram. Mammograms can detect breast cancer early, nearly 2 years before a woman can feel a breast lump. Annual breast exams by a health care provider are an impor- tant complement to mammograms. Breast self-exam is an easy way for a woman to detect any early breast changes Survival rate for women with treatment for early-stage breast cancer is 96%. Schedule your mammogram today. Call 832-4277, ext. 202. Only $60 for a screening mammogram during the month of October. "People Helping People" m Carol Porter, "The Women': Handbook," will speaker at of the Word ence.
