4A Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2008 Feather River Bulletin Joshua Sebold Staff Writer The last fair board meeting was full of dealings big and small with nary a dull moment. Plumas County Recre- ation and Park Director Jim Boland was on hand to make sure county youth could hold their recreation league basketball practice i.n Ser- pilio Hall as they did in the prior year. He offered a 50-pound bag of grass seed for twice week- ly usage of the building after sundown for two months running.

The board informed him Brett James At age 29, he left us behind How much we miss him so He touched many lives Made us laugh and cry His qualities through us will show Generosity, loyalty, kindness Jesting in his ways We yearn to see him again At this do not be amazed For the promise of the future Holds out better days (Revelation 21:3, 4; John 5:28, 29) Brett James Pilgrim, born 8-22-79 in Santa Rosa, CA.

In the same spirit, Boland responded he wouldn't take no for an answer, "Well as a neighbor that works cooper- atively together we'd be hap- py to donate the grass. We share equipment from time to time." The board concurred and, as he left, Boland comple- mented the fairgrounds staff on assistance with the pro- gram the year prior. Moving on to other cheer- ful news, Interim Fair Man- ager Bill Powers informed the board that approximately $46,000 would be made avail- the state's coffers looking so able by the California Depart- short. ment of Food and Agriculture.

He voiced his opinion a similar situation shouldn't be the case the next time around without more assurance the deal would be good. The board agreed further discussion would be neces- sary on this point, but no de- cision on the matter was made that day.
