I would like to thank the Quincy Rotary membership for taking on community pride responsibility and help- hag to make Quincy a place in which we can be proud for our visitors and ourselves. A special thank you to Quincy Rotary. Shirley Leschinsky Quincy New and fresh We would like to throw our hat in the ring in support of Jon Kennedy for District 5 supervisor. We have known Jon for many years and know him to be a caring and truth- ful individual and very dedi- cated to his family. Jon is a leader, a great listener, and has a desire to do the right thing. His roots run deep in the community and he loves Plumas County. He will be a great addition to the board with new and fresh ideas. Please join us in voting for Jon Kennedy for District 5 supervisor for Plumas Coun- ty. Alan & Linda Williams Cromberg Accuracy In last week's newspaper (Oct. 13), I noticed an inaccu- rate report of a motion I made at a previous BOS meeting Oct. 5, during an agenda item concerning a rate increase for Intermoun- tain Disposal. It was reported by editor Delaine Fragnoli that ! made a motion that "called for a 8 percent in- crease and closure of the site" referring to the Graea- gle site. I did make an initial mo- tion for the 8 percent in- crease, but not for the closure of the Graeagle transfer site. When Supervisor Ole Olsen whose district includes the Graeagle transfer site, made the next motion for a 9 percent increase, to include the closure of the Graeagie site, I seconded that motion supporting SUpervisor's Olsen's recommendation, which was in turn recom- mended by IMD as a cost sav- ings measure to his company and also by Public Works in previous board discussions. I would like to remind the public that the county has in- vested in a new webpage to provide accurate information to the public o'f our BOS meetings. That includes au- dio recordings of our BOS meetings that provide "word for word" accounts of what takes place at the meetings. After reviewing many oth- er counties websites, I found the Plumas County govern- ment webpage was severely lacking in providing current governrrient information to our public compared to the other counties. As an elected official under constant scrutiny, I take full responsibility for my words and actions and need to be held accountable at all times. I fully support government transparency, which was the BEST Burgers in Chester First 111Jrsday of every month "Martini Madness" Almanor Bowling $2 Draft Beer...00 Easy walk00J0000istance . :, 2 Brunswick pool tab es "arcade 37(5 Main St., Chester 258,4300 main reason I supported up- dating our website to provide accurate and timely informa- tion to the public:, I encourage everyone to take a look at the county web- page at and listen in to our audio BOS meetings and continue to contact us with your ques- tions and concerns. Lori Simpson Plumas County SuperVisor District 4 Quincy Welfare? HoW do we wish to promote Plumas County ... as a gor- geous place to come for vaca- tion, recreation, shopping an entertainment with fabulous golf courses, boating, camp- ing, fine dining, great places to stay and great winter sports areas in which to play? Or do we wish more and more state and federal funds with which to promote more and more welfare pro- grams and jump through the endless hoop to keep in con- formity with the conditions of receiving said money? Supervisor Olsen once lamented that he could re- member a time when Plumas County didn't apply for all the grants, etc., and noted that we got by "just fine." At one time in the recent past our county's budget was about $97 million but folks, we only have about 20,000- plus a few hundred citizens. You do the math! At the last Board of Super- visors meeting, a lengthy pre- sentation was made by Mimi Hall, head of Public Health, who explained that more and more requirements are com- ing from the federal govern- ment to make sure everyone is covered with healthcare. To be on the "cutting edge," our health department is tak- ing measures to get as many people enrolled in MediCal as qualify even to automatically enrolling (and their families) all who have signed up for school lunch programs! Guess what! That's not healthcare, that's welfare! I suppose county health is just preparing for what they feel is inevitable bttfave they noticed the huge publf" 0fit- cry against Obamacare? On the other hand, Plumas Corp submitted an itemized request for $19,000 but 100 percent was for administra- tion for tourism/arts. The question from the audience was "What do the taxpayers get for their tourism dol- lars?" The answer? "Well, we've run lots of ads about leaf peeping and worked ex- tensively to promote tourisrh in downtown Quincy"!
