The Cali- fornia Department of" Forestry and Fire Protection is participating in the 2010 national "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" campaign tak- ing place Oct. 25 - 27, in sup- port of cancer awareness. Employees of the Lassen Modoc Plumas Unit of Cal- Fire will join more than 900 fire and police departments nationwide in wearing pink T-shirts on duty to draw at- tention to the cause. The response by unit staff has been tremendous. Not only have staff purchased T- shirts for themselves, they have purchased them for their wives, mothers, sisters and daughters. Many pur- chased their T-shirts in hon= or of a friend or family mem- ber who has battled the dis- ease. The money spent by staff to buy the T-shirts will come back to the Lassen-Modoc- Plumas Unit where it will be donated to a local nonprofit cancer related program or foundation. Plumas County Search and Rescue members Amy Kreth and her rescue dog, Sparkle; Sandy Os- man and Gerty; Lori Powers and Moxie and their ground support teammate, Georgia Knutsen, get ready for a training exercise in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. Photo submitted t PSREC gives back to Search & Rescue One of the seven coopera- tive principles is commit- ment to community. Plumas- Sierra Rural Electric Cooper- ative (PSREC) is committed to the communities it serves. PSREC's telecommunica- tions subsidiaries support lo- cal organizations with dona- tions and a fundraising oppor- tunity through its "We Give Back" referral program. Plumas County Search and Rescue was a recent recipi- ent of funds that will help the organization purchase equip- ment for its search and res- cue teams. Groups such as Plumas County Search and Rescue that rely on donations and fundraisers to finance their organization have a great op- portunity with the We Give Back referral programs of- fered by PSREC's sub- sidiaries. "We Give Back" referral programs give a portion of the profits from PSREC's telecommunications sub- sidiaries back to local groups and organizations in Plumas, Lassen and Sierra counties that refer customers to pur- chase its products and ser- vices. Once organizations be- come participants in the pro- gram, they can earn funds by simply referring customers to purchase Internet or DI- RECTV services from PSREC's subsidiaries. New customers must let the subsidiaries know at the time of sale that an organiza- tion referred them; that orga- nization will get credit for the sale and earn a referral donation. For more information and an application for the "We Give Back" program, visit, or call the PSREC marketing department at 832-4261. BLOTTER, from page 3B call was transferred to the CHP.

CHP reported Keyfel al- legedly became distracted by an unknown object close to hisface. He attempted to re- move the debris and crossed over the solid white painted line to the north of SR-70. Keyfel immediately turned his vehicle to the left, crossing both lanes of traffic. This un- safe turning movement caused the left front of the ve- hicle to collide with the steel guardrail to the south of the roadway. After the collision, the left front of the vehicle remained resting against the guardrail with the rear blocking the eastbound lane of traffic. Keyfel was uninjured. Unsafe speed, Oct. 19 Cody Norberg, 21, of Greenville was driving a white 1987 Buick Skylark northbound on Round Valley Road. According to CHP, Norberg was traveling at an alleged unsafe speed and was unable to negotiate a curve in the roadway, Norberg left the roadway and the vehicle struck a tree, partially eject- ing him from the vehicle. Emergency personnel re- sponded to the scene and ex- tracted Norberg from his ve- hicle. He was life-flighted to Enloe Hospital. [, CA [i I IC 261,559 KE N SWiTZER BROKER: W&W RE LIC 01863253.
