Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015 3A Susan Jacobson Staff Writer The first traces of snow fell on the Sierra this past week, but based on meetings between the Eastern Plumas Recreation District Board of Directors and the Ski Hill committee on Oct. 21, a ea residents will have to keep waiting to ski Jn Johnsville. The need for snow dominated the discussions. The Ski Hill committee said the lack of snow has hindered its progress on every front: Hosting events, seeking sponsor support, attracting visitors, expanding offerings, using the new grooming machine and seeking support to assemble the recently acquired chair lift -- all require proving that the ski • hill average snow fall meets the expectations for sustained use. Progress on the plans to have a fully operational ski area that includes a chair lift, lodge and restroom facilities only lacks the most important element: snow. Financial audit overdue • The EPRD board of directors, which met later that day, said the district has failed to undergo mandated financial audits. County Supervisor Jeff Engel addressed the board during the public comment period regarding the matter. He said the district is two years over due for its five-year audit. Treasurer John Olofson was asked during his report about the status of the audit. Olofson stated his concerns about thecost of such an audit. County Supervisor Terry Swofford suggested that they set up a meeting with the county's auditor, clarify the rules to ensure compliance and prevent further misunderstanding. That meeting took place on Oct. 28. The board also discussed the lack of relevant financial reports. The board requested that financial reports be clear and comprehensive. "I am sorry that this has become an issue, but it would be helpful to understand what we have and what we don't have," said Vice Chair John Rowden. Communications breakdown Directors reported getting, what they considered, "harassing" emails from director Margaret Garner. Additionally, Rowden and Chairman Don Fregulia expressed concern about Garner representing the board without direction from the board. Fregulia gave Garner notice that she should not harass board members or contact outside entities on behalf of the board without official direction from the board as a whole.

This prestigious award is given to a pilot who has demonstrated safe flying abilities for at least 50 years. In their presentation, Harry Smith, center, and Ken Kelley said it has been well documented by the FAA that throughout Moore's flying career he has always demonstrated professionalism, skill and expertise by maintaining safe operations. Moore took his first solo flight in 1959 and went on to become a commercial pilot, flight instructor and FAA examiner. Before returning to Quincy, where he has owned and operated Sugarpine Aviators at the Quincy Airport since 1978, Moore spent the early part of his career as a cropduster in California and Nevada and bush pilot in Alaska. He also authored a book entitled "1 Must Fly," chronicling he and his family's , history in aviation in Plumas County. Moore said the award was "totally unexpected, but very much appreciated."
