10A Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014 Feather River Bulletin II Central Plumas Recreation and Park District's youth basketball league sign-ups are currently underway. This league is open to boys and girls in grades three through eight. Volunteer coaches will teach basketball skills and concepts while promoting teamwork and good Sportsmanship. "The format for the leagues has changed a bit this year," said sports coordinator Jeren Seibel. "The third-/fourth-grade league will be the same as always, with practices and games on weeknights at Quincy High School. The fifth-/sixth- and seventh-/eighth-grade leagues, however, will now be reg= competing in a league with Portola, Loyalton and Indian Valley. "They will practice on weeknights at Quincy High School, and play games on Saturdays at one of the four participating sites," said Seibel. Teams will practice throughout the month of December with games beginning in January and lasting through February. Volunteer coaches and assistants are needed in all divisions. The deadline to register is Friday, Nov. 21. "There will be a reinforced focus this season on the balancing of teams," said Seibel. "The recreation district will no longer be able un to accommodate requests for players to be placed with certain coaches and/or friends." In addition, first-/second-grade basketball program registrations are also underway. This program meets once a week, Wednesday evenings, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, and focuses on introducing kids to the basics of basketball. It is run in more of a clinic format. To sign up their children, parents can go to the recreation district office at 34 Fairground Road in Quincy. For more information call the district at 283-3278. EPHC Auxiliary awards schola hip Ann Powers Staff Writer apowers@plu The Eastern Plumas Health Care Auxiliary has awarded four continuing education scholarships to hospital staff looking to further their medical education and become a greater asset to the community. The volunteer group awarded nearly $2,600 in scholarship funds to Eliza Eisenman, Amber MaY Wilson, Shannon Trenchard and Regina Martinez. Eisenman, who received a $1,000 scholarship, plans on using the money to finish up her studies in Feather River College,s licensed professional nursing program. From there, she wants to pursue a registered nurse degree. "I was really excited," said Eisenman, age 20, from Quincy. "My m0m even got a little teary eyed. She was really happy." Over its lifetime of years, the Auxiliary has contributed about $2 million to Eastern Plumas Health Care, according to Auxiliary Treasurer Kim Burnett. Its primary volunteer focus is the Nifty Thrifty store in Portola. The volunteer group also hosts two annual blood drives, and administers a memorial fund benefiting the scholarships. Other recent donations include an ambulance-to-emergency room EKG transmission system, contributions to help pay for the hospital's electronic health record system, digital mammography equipment and ultrasound equipment. The Auxiliary also assists with hospital outreach events and provides volunteers at the skilled nursing facilities in Portola and Loyalton.
