Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014 11B ARTS E ,,; NTERTAINMENT ~_.~ ~ 1_ %- ntly di Calin Turcotte Special to Feather Publishing I rs un rh The year is 1919. World War I finally ended, but the countries involved amassed large debts. Britain attempted to support its allies during the fighting, but, accumulating its own debts, asked the United States to send money. The United States soon found that its own involvement in the war, on top of supporting other nations, was very expensive. The United States needed to raise money fast, but did not want to raise taxes. Instead, the United States asked civilians to buy war bonds. With war bonds, citizens sent the government money to help the country with its financial difficulties. War bonds were first sold during the war and continued to be sold for a long time afterwards, as the debt didn't disappear after the war ended. Many citizens on the home front helped sell these war bonds. When the war was over, the company that produced and sold war bonds changed its title from Liberty Bond to Victory Liberty Loan. Victory Liberty Loan was a large company, and made sure each state had its own chairman as part of the larger national committee. A state chairman was in charge of the county chairmen. The county chairman was in charge of the town chairmen. The most active salespeople were women. This is where Josephine Dotta and Fay Miller come in. Both these women were a part of the Women's Victory Liberty Loan committee, and Miller was the chairman for Plumas County. In April 1919, Miller informed Dotta4hatshe was to be the new chairman of Chilcoot and explained all the responsibilities that were involved with the title. Dotta, 20 at the time, was asked to raise at least $2,000 for Victory Liberty Loan. Dotta went beyond expectations and raised at least $6,700 for her country. She raised the most money in her county, and made Plumas County one of three counties This German kepi is currently on display at the Plumas County Museum, As recently discovered in letters, Fay Miller gave Josephine Dotta the kepi as a gift for raising the most war bonds for Plumas County at the end of World War I.

I NEVER MET A MAN I DID NOT LIKE (WILL ROGERS) We make our evil demons from afar Where then they're only names that have been tarred With hyped-up hate to be our worst bete noire, Equipped with horns and hooves and evil-scarred. We've made a demon of the adverse journalist Who sees the news from only left or right; We've made a demon of the activist, Who agitates for change to his own light. We demonize well-known celebrities Who lend support to causes they embrace And demonize elected entities Whom we would like the ballot to replace. But when the demon stands before our very eyes And we can see no horns nor hooves, the hate then dies.

We are doing our very best to avoid this, but it seems to be out of our hands right now. We also have a very limited selection of new releases on film and we need to book many weeks in advance to get classic titles. This is also making it very challenging to produce a definitive monthly movie schedule with so many choices are tentative bookings that can only be confirmed the Monday before the Friday that they are scheduled to go on screen. We will keep the public informed in the following ways: our weekly ad in the Feather River Bulletin papers, our movie line at 283-1140 and on our websites and the Town Hall Theatre link on As it turns out we could not have waited any longer to make the transition to a digital projection system. And as such we are extremely grateful that out community miraculously donated the funding that we will need to remain open and viable to do business. Here are our plans (some tentative) for November... THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU is tentatively scheduled for FRIDAY to MONDAY: November 14th to 171h When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately recon- nect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide--driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves. Based on the novel by the same name. Cast includes: Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Jane Fonda and Rose Byrne. This 103 minute Comedy is Rated: R for language, sexual content and some drug use. TRAIL STEWARDS OF THE LOST SIERRA plays One NIgM 0nlyl THURSDAY November 201h $5 ADMISSION Presented by the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, this documentary, pro- duced by Hunter Sykes and Coldstream Creative, chronicles the story of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship through interviews with its leadership, providing an inside view into the shared passion of likeminded individuals striving to enact positive changes in their own backyard. The film brings to light the dedication, the hard work, and the humility needed to perse- vere in an often difficult environment, and also illustrates the rewards gained from such dedication and the sense of family that the stewardship builds along the way. Shot and set entirely in Plumas and Sierra counties, and featuring scenes from the Downieville Classic mountain bike race and the Lost Sierra trail run, Trail Stewards Of The Lost Sierra is an engaging and honest look at some regular people achieving extraordinary things. /'Adults .................... s8 J~] TOUlH I I"""~"~n'~ ...........
