The prominent location right across the street from the county courthouse has great- ly increased traffic and expo- sure for the works of creative residents. This dynamic space currently boasts a col- lection of the work of 70 re- gional artists. "More and more people are making their way into the gallery each day," comment- ed gallery manager Lori Davis. Many come out of curiosity fueled by memories of the space in its former life as the county's longest continuously running public drinking es- tablishment. All leave as, tounded by, and complimen- tary of, the work that has been accomplished in re-habi- tating the space. The building was built in 1873 and its brick structure allowed it to survive a fire that devastated Main Street. Plumas Arts has served as the catalyst that has brought the historic facility back into spirited community use. Many more programs are planned as ideas sPring to life. For more information about the many programs and projects of Plumas Arts, or to support its work with an annual membership dona- tion, see the website at or call 283- 3402. l'he Capitol Arts Gallery features the work of fused glass de- ;signer Ruth McRoberts, who incorporates quilt patterns into some of her functional designs.

This year's flu season and National Influenza Vaccina- tion Week provides an im- portant opportunity for the health department to tell people how important it is to get an annual flu shot," said Plumas County Public Health Director Mimi Hall. 'Getting vaccinated is the ingle best way for people to brotect not only themselves hgainst flu, but their loved bnes as well." ( Each year, the health de- tartment provides free flu hots to all residents through its annual drive-through flu .Clinic in each community, at school based flu clinics, and' by appointment at the Public Health Clinic The agency vaccinated 1,654 people during its annual drive-through vaccination clinics Oct. 22-26, and more than 713 students received the vaccination the week of Nov: 5. If you have not already re- ceived your flu vaccine, it's not too late. Vaccine isstill available, and getting a flu vaccine is more convenient than ever: Vaccines are available at local health care providers, at many retail pharmacies, and at Plumas County Public Health Agency. While there may be a cost through your local clinic or pharmacy, the county health department provides no-cost flu shots. Flu vaccine is recommend- ed for almost everyone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone over the age of six months receive a flu vac- cine, which offers the best protection against the flu. Thousands of people die and tens of thousands are hospitalized with flu compli- cations each year. People at highest risk of complications from the flu are children younger than 5, adults older than 65, people with certain health condi- tions, and pregnant women. Because the flu virus is constantly changing, it is im- portant to get vaccinated every year. The severity of flu illness can vary from mild to severe. When severe, flu complica- tions can lead to hospitaliza- tion and sometimes even death. Even healthy children and adults can get very sick from the flu. "One of the greatest chal- lenges we face from the flu is the uncertainty of the dis- ease," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the Na- tional Center for Immuniza- tion and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disea Control and Prevention (CDC). "Flu viruses are con- stantly changing. Each flu season, different flu viruses can spread, and they can af- fect people differently based on their body's ability to fight infection."
