) 6B Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter YIR, from page 5B budget consultant, Susan Scarlett, reviewed preliminary numbers for the next fiscal year. Based on anticipated revenubs and expenditures, the county is looking at a $3.3 million budget shortfall. That compares to a $1.7 million shortfall that the supervisors faced a year ago. "I was really surprised," said Supervisor Sherrie Thrall during an interview the following day. "I was expecting it to be closer to what it was last year." When faced with the $1.7 million shortfall last year, the supervisors reviewed the budgets line by line, made cuts wherever possible and implemented furloughs. The supervisors will study the budgets again. "We asked the departments to submit status quo budgets and some of them were off," Thrall said. "I think some had misunderstandings." Scarlett presented mostly status quo budgets supplied by the departments, but many also submitted alternative spending plans that contain additional expenditures for more staff. "None of the scenarios include the additional personnel requested," Scarlett told the supervisors. And that's what concerns Thrall the most. "I know many departments truly need help," she said, but doesn't know how that will be possible. "I think it's going to be pretty grim," she said of the overall budget. The budget shortfall is due to both a drop in revenue and an increase in expenditures. Thrall wants to review sales tax revenues and ensure that the county is collecting sales tax captured by Internet purchases. "Are we getting that sales tax back?" she asked. Those questions and more will be answered in the coming weeks as the supervisors meet with The Clear Creek train trestle in the Feather River Canyon serves as the cover photo for the state's report on oil rail safety, which covers concerns for both urban and rural areas. The Canyon corridor is identified as one of two high-hazard areas. June 25 From pipeline to railcar, the nation's oil companies are making a transition that has federal, state and local officials worried about public safety and environmental disasters. And that worry extends right here to Plumas County where the threat of disaster is literally rolling through town. departmenthaffsiii '=" ....................... 2*he BurIfhgt0n Northern preparation for this Santa Fe is carrying tanks of summer's budget hearings.

Bakken oil, a product obtained through fracking, is considered more volatile than other forms of crude oil. The oil's danger was revealed during last July's accident in Lac-M6gantic, Quebec, where half of the town was leveled and 47 people killed when 63 tank cars of oil exploded during a derailment.

Sierra (Hwy 70), Portola, CA 832-4646 was spilled in rail accidents in 2013 than was spilled in the nearly four decades prior. In California, ,incidents involving oil carried by rail increased from three in 2011 to 25 in 2013, with 24 to date this year. The reasons for the accidents vary, but include track failure, inadequate rail car equipment and human error. Given that more oil is being carried by rail, and incidents involving oil are increasing, jurisdictions are responding. As the United States shifts from external sources of oil, and oil companies embrace the flexibility that rail provides, the amount of oil delivered by rail has increased dramatically. According to the Association of American Railroads, trains transported 97,135 carloads of crude oil during the first quarter of 2018, which wasa 166 percent increase from the first quarter in 2012, and 922 percent more than for all of 2008. As crude shipments have increased so have spills and derailments. According to the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety, nationally more crude oil July 2 From pipeline It looks like Plumas Unified School District Superintendent Micheline Miglis is here to stay- until 2017 at least. The trustees approved an addendum to the superintendent's contract, extending her term until the end of the 2017 school year. Miglis was hired in October of 2012 as superintendent of PUSD. The Plumas County Office of Education board (the same members as PUSD) appointed Miglis to the county superintendent position shortly after she was hired. Plumas County is one of the few in the state that have only a single school district. It is common in such instances that the superintendent of the district is also the superintendent of the county office of education. Miglis ran unopposed to retain her county seat last month and won the PCOE superintendent election with more than 95 percent of the vote. July 9 It would be costly and difficult to haul 7,000 gallons of water a week to the top of Indian Falls, but that's what could happen if the state curtails the Dawn Institute's water rights. The Dawn Garden and the residents of Indian Falls are just some of the many local water users applying for an. exemption from the state's curtailment because a spring is their sole source of water. Terry Schwartz, who is the chief financial officer for the Dawn Institute, has been studying water options since he received a notice from the State Water Board at the end of May. A second notice arrived 30 days later. "we responded appropriately," he said. "This is our only source of water for the garden and residents, and for fire protection." The state-sent notice and questionnaire inquiries about alternative water options including buying bottled water or hauling water via a commercial supplier. Schwartz said residents use 1,050 gallons per day. If that water were to be purchased at the nearest retailer, Evergreen Market, it would cost $2,000 per day. As for a potable water hauler, "there is only one in the county," Schwartz said. "Big Mountain Water out of Quincy." The water would be purchased from the Indian Valley Community Services District and hauled to the 15,000-gallon storage tank at the top of Indian Falls. Schwartz said the 2,000-gallon truck would need to make 3.5 trips to meet the 7,000-gallon per week demand of the garden and residents. "It's roughly $800 per week," for the cost of the water and the transportation. Along with the Indian Falls residents, other small community water systems, seasonal lodges such as Gray Eagle Lodge, and individual homes are all potentially affected by the curtailment. July 16 They came, they partied, and they didn't cause too many problems. Thousands of visitors descended on Plumas County over the long holiday weekend, July 4 - 6. It is annually one of the busiest times of the year for local law enforcement. "I was very pleased with the number of visitors we had to Plumas County and very pleased with the lack of critical incidents," Sheriff Greg Hagwood said. Local California Highway Patrol Commander Joe Edwards echoed the sheriff's sentiments. "There were really no major problems," Edwards said. "It was a very cool weekend. We had a good time."
