It was the third tally less than 10 quakes in the last five weeks and the fifth in the last 17 weeks. Between the seismic lows have been robust seismic highs.

This is the fewest at this level since mid July :t5 weeks ago. 0nly six M 3s have been recorded this year, four of them in the last ten weeks. $eismicity has not been this quiet at this level since the year leading up to the moder- ately stronger Canyondam M 5.7 earth- quake in May 2013. The largest earthquake measured M 2.2 and occurred at 5:18 a.m. ThursdaY, October 16, southwest of Reno in the Carson Range. A couple of light tremors occurred in eastern Tehama ounty and a M 1.6 trig- gered northeast of Burney. OBITUARIES Howard Andrew Lyon man with a heart of gold: the jewel that he was. He will be missed by all. An opportunity to express condolences to the family and sign the memorial guest register is available online at Terry Lawrence Owens Howard Andrew Lyon was born Nov. 25, 1934, on the Parrot Grant Ranch outside of Chico in Butte County. He passed from this life Oct. 18, 2014, at Quincy Nursing and Rehabilitation. Howard was raised on the ranch until the family moved to Willows, where he attended school and graduated from Willows High School. At age 18, Howard joined the U.S. Navy where he became a cook, a talent that served the family well later in his life. Upon his honorable discharge in 1957, Howard worked at a variety of jobs until he became a journeyman meat cutter, a profession he was most proud of. He was employed at the former Boyd's Market until, 1974 when his wife Darleen convinced him that working 6-1/2 days a week was too tough on the marriage. He then went to work for Cal Gas and later Coast Gas before retiring. Not one to sit idle, Howard could be found driving the senior bus as well as the veterans transportation van. Along with his parents, Howard is preceded in his passing by a son, David; his second wife, Darleen; and brothers and sisters. In passing Howard leaves his daughters, Debbie McKinney and husband Walt, and Donette Lyon, as well as his daughters from his second marriage: Virginia Windle and husband David and Laura Lazenby. Additionally he leaves behind three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Howard's family wishes everyone to remember him as a hard-working, fun-loving, little rough-around-the-edges Terry Lawrence Owens, 76, of Quincy, passed away Oct. 26, 2014. She was born Aug. 3, 1938, in Altadena, to Melbourne Lester Means and Phyllis Carolyn Means. Terry had three younger sisters: Tomlin (deceased), Tony and Toyal. She and her family moved to Quincy in 1952. Terry was crowned Plumas County's Sweetheart of the Mountains in 1953 and graduated from Quincy High School in 1956. Terry married Bill Wattenburg and then moved to Chico and subsequently to Berkeley to follow Bill's education. She graduated with a BA in education from San Francisco State University and became an elementary school teacher. Bill and Terry had three children: Eric, Tanya and Kira. Terry moved back to Quincy in 1980 and married her loving husband Tom Owens. She was a planning technician for Plumas County and retired in 1993. Terry was a very private person who enjoyed homemaking, reading, gardening and travel. Her family was the most important aspect of her life. Terry is survived by her husband Tom, her three children, seven grandchildren and two stepsons, Doug and Matt. Terry wanted her friends and family to simply remember her as she was. Terry requested any donations be given to the charity of the giver's choice. She also requested no services.
