We have experienced some local tragedies, and now with the horrific events at an elementary school in Connecticut, my heart aches. Dealing with this is difficult as adults, and much more so for our children. Please, hug your children closely, as I will be do- ing with my own. If you find that you or your son/daughter needs extra help or has questions, let us know. We are here to help.

Lic. #453927 (530) 283 2035 General Building Contractor to the 49 counties in which it operates. Plumas County received $1,876,985.38, up $65,865 from last year. This amount, paid last week, is the first of two annual in- Stallments and represents full and timely payment of proper- ty taxes due for the period from July 1 to Dec. 31. "Local governments are fac- ing financial challenges and must address public safety, en- vironmental protection, health care, education and other needs with limited resources," said Mark Caron, PG&E's vice president of tax. "PG&E's timely and substantial pay- ments to local governments for property taxes and other fees help them address those vital community services." The company's tax pay- ments to counties for tax year 2012-13 increased by more than $18 million over the previous property tax year's payments as a result of an increase in as- sessments due to PG&E's in- frastructure investments. This includes upgrades to improve electric and gas safety, relia- bility and capacity, as well as energy generating station de- velopment.
