Jan was born in Pasadena May 7, 1930, to Russell and Louise (Gates) Bailey. After spending much of her childhood in Pasadena, the family moved often due to Russell's construction career, with stays in Washington, Nevada and, Brazil. Jan later moved back to Southern California where she made many friends she often spoke of in later years. While living in Johnsondale, Jan married Gary Moore and started a family. They later moved to McKinleyville, then Willows, where Jan worked for many years at Glenn General Hospital. In 1973, the family moved to Greenville where Jan worked at Indian Valley Hospital as director of medical records.

In 1996, Jan retired and moved to Chico, where she Volunteered at Paw Prints and worked as the ombudsman for Passages. Jan valued hard work and always put 100 percent into whatever position she held. She had an alert and active mind with an excellent memory. She could also be very funny, often by just being who she was, and had a knack for striking up conversations with complete strangers wherever she went. Jan enjoyed reading, knitting, fishing trips, Sunday drives, explorin$ thrift stores for good deals, watching "Wheel of Fortune" and the Lifetime movie channel, people-watching, crossword puzzles and keeping her house in very neat order. She also loved her gadgets. We called infomercials "As Seen by Mom on TV:" Even if a miracle product or device didn't live up to its billing, it was on to the next one anyway. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Jan is survived by two sons, Victor, of Chico, and John, of Artois, and a daughter, Loretta, of Grass Valley.

She was allegedly under the influence of alcohol. At approximately 2:47 a.m. Singh failed to negotiate a slight right-hand curve and lost control of the vehicle. The car began rotating counterclockwise, crossed over the westbound lane and Skidded onto tile north dirt and gravel shoulder. The right side of the Sable then crashed into a large ponderosa pine, causing massive damage to the car, which came to rest facing east on the north shoulder near the tree.

He allowed the right front tire of the Jeep to travel off of the west edge of the road. It struck a basketball-sized boulder and continued south, along the shoulder. The front of the car then collided with a metal reflector post. immediately thereafter, the vehicle hit a rock wall, which caused the Wrangler to roll onto its left side. Because he was wearing his seat belt at the time, said the CHP, the driver sustained only minor injuries. Highway 89 south of Cold Creek Campground, Nov. 24 Garrett Bishop, 18, of Quincy, was traveling northbound on Highway 89 in a 2007 Lincoln MKZ, with the cruise control set at 57 - 58 mph.

After the collision, the driver was able to exit the car and flag down a passing motorist for assistance. Bishop sustained moderate injuries. He was wearing his safety belt and, during the accident, the front and side airbags deployed, minimizing his injuries. Highway 70 west of Massack Rest Area, Nov. 25 Carson City, Nevada, resident Ralph Jenkins, 78, was driving his silver 2014 Mazda CX-5 at an approximate speed of 50 mph. At about 11:55 a.m. a deer ran directly in front of the car. The driver had no time to take evasive action and the front of the vehicle struck the deer.

Cal Fire transitions out of fire season Recent rains and lower temperatures across the region have lowered the threat of wildfires, allowing Cal Fire's Lassen Modoc Plumas Unit to transition out of fir season effective" Monday, Nov. 24, in Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties. As drought conditions continue to have a hold on California, Cal Fire is maintaining staffing that meets the current threat, as well as strategically moving resources to areas that remain at a higher threat level. Cal Fire will also continue to monitor weather conditions closely and officials say they still have the ability to increase staffing should weather conditions change or if there is a need to support wildYre suppression activities in other areas of the state. The 2014 fire season has been an extremely active year, according to the agency.,. Statewide, Cal Fire and firefighters from many local agencies battled over 5,500 wildfires within the state responsibility area that burned nearly 91,000 acres. This number is over 1,000 more wildfires this year than normal. "The Lassen-Modoc-Plumas Unit experienced the Day Fire, which started from lightning on JulY 30 and burned over 13,000 acres," said Acting Unit Chief Dave Junette. "This was one of the largest wildfires the unit has experienced in several years. The residents of Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties worked diligently this summer to be t-we safe and I encourage families to continue in this manner throughout the winter months." Residents are urged to still take precautions outdoors in order to prevent sparking a wildfire. A leading cause of wildfires this time of year is from escaped landscape debris,burning say officials. Before burning, residents need to ensure it's a permissive burn day by contacting the local air pollution control district. They also need to have all required burn permits. During burning, residents should make sure piles of landscape debris are no larger than 4 feet in diameter, provide a 10-foot.clearance down to bare mineral soil around the burn pile, and maintain attendance by a responsible adult at all times with a water source and a shovel.
