His route covers Quincy Junction, Chan- dler and Lee roads, and all the way down to Keddie  50 miles and over 500 deliveries a day. Everything you've heard about rain, sleet and snow not deterring the mailman is true. Beynon said it could get stressful when he has to get his route finished in an old jeep (no four-wheel drive, either) in the snow, in time to get outgoing mail onto the 5 p.m. truck. He's slid off the road on several occasions. Recent years have seen a few helpful changes. Beynon no longer provides his own vehicle, and a machine now sorts his letters. He still sorts magazines and flats for his route, though. He says he now averages an eight-hour day; it used to be 10. According to Beynon, people have no idea what it takes to get the mail out every day and would be surprised at "how much stuff we handle." Beynon has "all the cliches." He's looking for- ward to fishing, cutting wood and visiting the grandkids. He has really enjoyed delivering mail to the people of Quincy, and made lots of good friends along the way. Now, howev- er, he's ready to retire! Photo by Linda Satchwell COMMUNITY CORNER COMMUNITY CALENDAR Note: Due to the holidays, some of the following events may not be held.

Not since the first week of May has earthquake activity fall- en to single-digit levels. The intensity of seismicity also waned as no activity registered M 2.0 or stron- ger. It has been five months since a week passed and no M 2 activity occurred. Activity continued northwest of Lassen Peak in the Latour State Park, this week producing another four small tremors. Two measured as large as M 1.8. The Las- sen Volcanic Center has shifted around over the last three million years and the older known center is in the Latour area. Volcanic rocks there are between 3.5 and 2.5 million years old. They are just the remnant roots of a once vigorous volcano. The other volcanic centers are: Yanna (2.5-3.1), Ditmar (1.4-Z.3 my), Maidu (0.8-2.2 my), and of course, the current Lassen Volcanic Center. m A quake measuring M 1.9 occurred north of Portola at Lake Davis.
