Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010 15A Joshua Sebold Staft Writer Tuesday, Dec. 7, the Plumas County Board of Su- pervisors appointed Dale Snook to fill the veteran's service officer (VSO) posi- tion for the next 60 days. The board's unanimous vote also included the cre- ation of a committee to se- lect someone to fill the per- manentposition. "I've worked in the veter- ans office for over 10 years," Snook told the board. "I went out with ill health in June, but my health is better now, so when I was asked to return tem- porarily, ! was glad to keep the veterans in line and keep work going." Indian Valley Supervisor Robert Meacher asked Snook what he thought about the idea of forming a selection committee. "I hate to comment on it because I am going to apply for the permanent position," he responded. "I retract my question from you and direct it to the chair," Meacher said as the crowd chuckled. Chairwoman Sherrie Thrall indicated the board should appoint one veteran from each supervisor's district. County Administrative Of. ficer (CAO) Jack Ingstad re- ported health department di- rector Mimi Hall offered to coordinate the committee meetings. Ingstad added the office has already received several applications for the position. Veterans interested in serving on the selection committee may call the CAO's office at 283-6315. Ingstad said some of the applications were from pea+ pie who weren't certified to be a VSO. Thrall explained, "The thing we discovered with this is that to have access to the veterans' records and a lot of the privacy informa- tion and control that goes on there's a certification process." "That normally takes awhile, but it's a test, it's how soon they can grasp the nlaterial," Snook added. Outgoing VSO Sheryl Austin decided not to apply for the new position after it was downgraded from a de- partment head and moved under the umbrella of public health. Austin also complained of a lack of communication from Ingstad at various times throughout the process. Thrall told the public the board "made the deci- sion to move the Veterans Service Office under public health to provide a little bit better coverage since we were down to one person in the office." "If that person were ill or on vacation or just out of the office doing business, we didn't really have anybody to man the phones or meet somebody that came in the door. "What we're hoping ulti- mately when we permanent- ly fill the position is that we'll have more time for out- reach into the community." Quincy Supervisor Lori Simpson told Han she heard the health department would also be handling fiscal work for the VSO. Hall replied that the board would have to decide who would have that responsibil- ity in the long run, but in the short run her depart- ment would pick up the slack, as that wasn't Snook's area of expertise. American Legion District Commander Marge Goosey, who oversees posts in sever- al counties, including Plumas, commented, "We've really been quite unhappy with what's happened in the last four or five months." Goosey added she would be applying for the position, although she wasn't certi- fied. "So, we can't put you on the selection committee," Meacher quipped. "Is there a veteran who hasn't ap- plied?" After the audience stopped laughing the board voted to appoint Snook and form the committee.

It was the first time that back-to-back weeks of activity this high occurred since June of 2008. Driving the action was the ongoing sequence located about eight miles south-southwest of Reno and four miles north of Galena along the eastern flank of the Sierra. Dubbed the Arrow Creek => 2.3 10:18"a.m. i :0Sa.m. 12/2 2.4 12"35 a.m. 12/3 earthquake swarm, it produced another 41 events raising the two week total to 71 events. Most of the activity was relative- ly small as only two quakes registered in the M Z range. All of the activity occurred at 6-7 miles below the surface, which is typical of activity along the Sierra front range faults. A quake measuring M 2.3 occurred about three miles east of Chester along the Almanor fault zone. Activity has in- creased along this segment of the fault, producing 26 events this year alone, 61 percent of them in the last five months. only six happened here last year.
