Hawthorne Staff Writer The Lake Almanor Basin community is coming together for a night packed with holiday traditions Friday, Nov. 29. Merchants' Night, a time for shopping, laughter and family fun, has been observed throughout Chester on the Friday after Thanksgiving for 27 years. Throughout the evening, Main Street merchants will be welcoming guests with cheerful music, holiday sales and homemade goodies during Merchants' Open House, from 5 to 9 p.m. In addition to complimentary goodies, many merchants will have special in-store discounts available. As a new business to Chester, RJ's Restaurant will be kicking off its first year of participation by serving a variety of free appetizers. Mouth-watering treats such as peppermint ice cream, hot cider and freshly baked cookies will also be found throughout town, courtesy of participating merchants. Dede Peterson, owner of Peterson Place, will light the bonfire, allowing community members to take a break from shopping and enjoy the cool breeze and crackling blaze of the fire. A handful of merchants will also have small fire pits in front of their stores. "Merchants' Night gives community members something to do and gets them in the holiday spirit," said Sharon Henry, owner of Lassen Gift Co. and originator of the annual event. The night will also be host to several mini-events around town including an informal light parade, tree lighting ceremony and a visit from Santa Claus. The traditional Merchants' Night tree lighting ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. and will once again take place at the Almanor Basin Community Resource Center, located at 372 Main St. Santa Claus and his wife will be available for pictures at the ABC center starting at 5 p.m. A variety of holiday goodies will also be available. The line to see Santa is generally pretty long, so be sure to dress warmly. The seventh annual light parade -- a unique, unofficial and unsponsored event '--- is open to anyone wishing to participate. Festively decorated vehicles will make their way through town, starting and ending at Builders Supply. Before making his way to the ABC center, Santa will be hitching a ride on the brightly lit Chester Public Utility District fire truck for a trip through town. A county bus nicknamed "Rudy's Rig" will be transporting shoppers to and from each business, free of charge. Youth forum winners announced Quincy High School students met in the annual Soroptimist Youth Forum to debate the topic of Cyber Monitoring: National Security vs. Personal Rights. The discussions were lively and, at times, heated. The information technology manager of Plumas District Hospital, Brenda Compton, was the speaker. She challenged the students to think about what it means to be monitored by the government or special interest groups. Several community members volunteered to help guide and evaluate the students. Facilitators were Peter Hentschel, Kent Barrett, Sue Gutierrez and Paul Mrowczynski. Judges were Maddy Kaufman; Dr. Kevin Trutna, president of Feather River College; and Doug Lafferty, CEO of PDH. After group presentations were made, the winners were announced. James Oravetz took the grand prize of $100. Ethan Hicks won $75 and Kendal Hicks took third with $50. According to Soroptimist president Joyce Sc.roggs, one of the facilitators observed that some of the students didn't see any problems with cyber monitoring. They had lived with monitoring all of their lives and hadn't encountered any difficulties. The winners of this year's Soroptimist Youth Forum are, from left, Kendal Hicks, Ethan Hicks and James Oravetz.
