Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2008 3A REVIEW, from page 2A with Karl Steidel as the de- signer. April 16 Johnene McDonald placed first in the California State Fiddling Championship March 15. The state champi- onship is held every year in Oroville. McDonald placed second in the state division in 2006 and 2007. She has earned the title of Adult State Champi- on six times over the last 12 years, including 1996, 1997, 1998, 2001 and 2002, with sec- ond places in 2000, 2006 and 2007 and third places in 2003 and 2004. April 23 Bob Reed of The Reed Group Inc. presented his re- vised draft of a rate study for Quincy Community Ser- vice District, covering the next five years, at a recent directors' meeting. Addressing the effects of rate changes on the average family, the report claims, "The typical monthly single family customer's combined water and wast,water utili- ty bill will increase from the current $66.55 to $68.40 in FY 08-09 (+2.8 percent), to $72.50 in FY 09-10 (+6.0 per- cent), and to $76.42 in FY 10- 11 (+5.4 percent). Bill in- creases for each customer will depend on customer class, meter size, and water usage." April 30 Members of Soroptimist International of Quincy hon- ored six women at their first awards luncheon. Marilyn Hoffman present- ed the first award to mother and Feather River College student Roberta Linoz. Member Martha Flynn presented the Making a Dif- ference for Women award to Anne Gaudet. Kathy Price was next, pre- senting the Violet Richard- son Award to Breanna Ward, a senior at Quincy High School. The Advancing the Status of Women award went to Kimberly Pilkington, owner of My Sister's Closet. Tiffany Robertson was this year's selection as the Outstanding S-Club mem- ber. The Women in History Award went to Lois Alexan- der. In their race for District 4 supervisor, incumbent Rose Comstock and challenger Lori Simpson gave Quincy voters clear choices at the League of Women Voters fo- rum Tuesday, April 22. Each woman highlighted her strengths in the hour- long question-and-answer session moderated by the League's Joyce Scroggs: Comstock displayed her ex- perience and knowledge of the issues, while Simpson emphasized her ability to work well with people and build relationships. May 7 One local man has a new hero -- his eye doctor. When Robert Venuti, a 12- year Quincy resident, went to his optometrist, Dr. Jonathan Friden, O.D., com- plaining of eye pain last month, he never dreamed that he had a life-threaten- ing condition. Friden, a relatively new local optometrist, began to examine Venuti's eyes arid immediately discovered what he thought was a buildup of pressure behind the man's right eye. "He told me I only had one hour to live," Venuti said about the experience. Four Plumas County resi- dents, including the owner of Morning Thunder Caf6 in Quincy, were arrested for possession of various drugs Friday, May 2. Darold DeCoe, who owns the popular restaurant, was stopped by police at the in- tersection of Highways 70 and 89 near Blairsden. His vehicle, also occupied by Robert Newby and Teddy Walters, was searched, lead- ing to the seizure of methamphetamine, marijua- na, paraphernalia, scales, packaging materials and a loaded revolver. May 21 Jeff Bergstrand's lawyer, Michael Jackson, was in court Tuesday, May 13, ar- guing that the case against his client should be dis- missed. But a judge thought differently, ruling that is- sues of credibility belonged with a jury. Sgt. Ken Nelson recently told District Attorney Jeff Cunan that he remembered a conversation that poten- tially changed the nature of the case against Bergstrand Robert Venuti can't say enough good things about the people at Drs. Friden and Gilman in Quincy. He credits Jonathan Friden with saving his life in April. In Venuti's opinion, people just don't get any better.

When interviewed shortly afterwards Jackson claimed, "The district attorney needs to dismiss the case because he knows Bergstrand is not guilty of the charges. He should do so as soon as pos- sible because he has an obligation to not prosecute an innocent due to the rules of the state bar and common decency." May 28 The QHS Class of 1958, "The Class with Class," will celebrate its 50th class re- union June 7-8. The returning classmates will host the registration table for Quincy High School's third annual all- alumni gathering at the County Picnic held at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair- grounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Later that evening they will attend a formal celebra- tion dinner at the Elks Lodge. June 4 Challenger Lori Simpson has filed a complaint against incumbent Supervi- sor Rose Comstock alleging misuse of the county seal on election materials distrib- uted by Comstock. Because violation of the election code in question is a misdemeanor, Clerk- Recorder Kathy Williams forwarded the complaint Friday, May 30, to District Attorney Jeff Cunan.

Court documents released last week help answer that question and provide a first glimpse into Carrillo's ac- count of the night of May 10- 11. According to the docu- ments, Carrillo was identi- fied as a possible suspect from interviews with those present at the Carrigan home Sunday afternoon, May 11. While interviewing him, officials became more suspi- cious, according to the court documents. June 11 Residents who live near Plumas.
