Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 9A 2014, from page 8A Big Dan Leonhardt," senior Shawn Hughes sang the country song titled, "These are my People." In her address, salutatorian Claire Kepple said, "Our class will do great things wherever the road may take us." July 2 After reading the local newspaper story about millions of gallons of water gone missing from East QuincyServices District on, DanieUe and Jesse Frid put two and two together. They had noticed on several different hikes in their neighborhood that water was gushing out of an overflow pipe near a water tank off Clough Street in their East Quincy neighborhood. In EQSD's search to locate the water leak, which appears to have been occurring for the last couple months, district staff checked all of the district's wells, tanks and valves, but could find no leaks. When the couple called June 24 to say, the water was gushing out right then, staff went to the site and determined there was a problem with the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system and a discrepancy in the levels set. Based on the amount of flow gushing from the overflow pipe, the district determined that it was indeed the source of its missing millions of gallons of water. Staff worked with Sierra Controls and fixed the problem last week, interim general manager Shawneen Howe said. HEA NG" COOL N ELECTR July 9 The quiet, sleepy town of Quincy woke up last week, and stayed up all hours of the night. The High Sierra Music Festival returned to the Plumas-Sierra County ..... Fairgrounds for its 16thyear:- in Quincy and its 24th year overall last weekend, and brought an estimated 10,000 festivalgoers along. The festival brought some big acts this year, including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Beats Antique, Widespread Panic and Lord Huron. Music was playing practically nonstop with artists rotating between three stages. Campers filled nearly every vacant spot in and around the fairgrounds, creating tent Cities overnight. Many camps decorated their canopies and tents to match certain themes. Impromptu parties and jam sessions popped up all over the fairgrounds. Different ethnic food, normally not attainable in Plumas County, was served up in the food court. People lined up to chow down on gyros, paella, crepes, Thai food and Afro-Caribbean cuisine. For a crowd of 10,000 people, there was surprisingly little trouble. The festival took precautions and hired its own security team and had a medic tent set up in the fairgrounds to take care of minor injuries. Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood praised the organization of the festival. "We haven't had any major issues," said Hagwood. "Everything's gone smoothly so far. I'm really happy with how it's going." Hagwood wasn't the only local personpleased with the arrival of the festival. Businesses all over town reported booms in business before and during the festivities. Raj Singh, owner of the Relay Station, had nothing but good things to say about his out-of-town customers. "They're all wonderful people. Everybody who came in was happy, and that made us relaxed. People call this the hippie fest, but they should call it the happy fest," Singh joked. July 16 Patients of Dr. Jeffrey Kepple who were waiting for him to return to private practice are going to be disappointed -- at least for another 12 months. " His three-month contract to serve as Plumas District's Hospital interim chief executive officer has been transformed into a one-year contract with the modifier "interim" dropped. "The most difficult part of this decision is letting go of nearly twenty years of an incredibly rewarding practice in Family Medicine," he wrote in a letter to his patients to be distributed this week. Kepple explained that he sought a one-year contract, rather than the more typical three-year time period, to. "keep the door open to return to my practice in some form." He isn't eliminating all patient contact. Kepple will continue to see a limited number of obstetric patients one half-day per week and practice some dermatology. July 30 Due to an emergency regulation for statewide water conservation mandated by the State Water Resources Control Board, customers in Quincy are now obligated to restrict their outside water usage. The Quincy Community Services District board adopted ordinance number 53 at a special meeting establishing mandatory water conservation measures for its customers effective immediately. In essence, the ordinance restricts outside watering to three days per week for all QCSD customers, according to their street address. Aug. 13 It's official -- Mike Green has accepted the position of general manager for East Quincy Services District. The decision to hire Green was made at a special board meeting.
