More residents face evacuation

By AMY GITTELSOHN

Conditions have been in flux for Trinity County residents living near wildfires that flared over the past week. As of Tuesday, residents of several communities in western Trinity County were under voluntary or mandatory evacuations, while others had been told to prepare for the possibility. From the Trinity County Sheriff’s Department, EmergencyOperationsPublic Information Officer Lynn Ward said residents who have evacuated have been finding shelter with friends and family, and no shelters are open at this time although they are on standby. Many residents are staying put. “Not many people are

Groups mull increase in ‘bed tax’

By SALLY MORRIS

The organizations that receive a yearly share of Trinity County’s transient occupancy tax revenue collected from the patrons of

local hotels and resorts have teamed up in an effort aimed at increasing the tax rate from the current 5 percent to

10 percent. “We’d like to open it up for

a dialogue,” said Pat Zugg in

her dual role as vice president of the Trinity County Chamber of Commerce and president of the Weaverville Chamber. She was joined by the Hayfork Chamber of Commerce treasurer, Charlene Dunaetz of Hayfork, who noted that the tax rate has been at 5 percent since 1965 and even at 10 percent,

“we’d still be the lowest in the state.” Also known as a “bed tax,” the transient occupancy tax generated just over $190,000 in 2006/07. Trinity County takes 10 percent of the revenue for administration of the fund and though it’s

a general tax, the board of

supervisors traditionally distributes the remainder to

various organizations whose activities promote Trinity County tourism. Annual recipients are the three chambers of commerce, the Jake Jackson Museum in Weaverville, Trinity County Arts Council, Trinity County Fair Association and the Humboldt/TrinityRecreation

Alliance in Southern Trinity County.

Previous efforts to gain voter approval for an increase in the hotel tax rate have failed. The last ballot measure to raise the rate and declare it a special tax for promoting the county and for law enforcement failed to garner the two-thirds majority of votes required for passage of a special tax.

A general tax increase only

requires a majority of votes plus one, but that wasn’t successful either. As costs go up and competition for the funds intensifies each year, the various recipients of hotel tax revenue have been discussing possible ways

of approaching another attempt to raise the rate to

Grants awarded for children’s programs

First 5 Trinity County has

announced grant awards to- taling over $280,000 for fis- cal year 2008-09. The First

5 Commission approved the

grants to local programs that promote early childhood de- velopment through educa- tion, health/medical and childcare services. The Human Response Network’s “Welcome Baby” program received $50,000. The program provides home visits and early interven- tion services to new parents. Funds are used to provide weekly home-based servic- es to parents focused on each family’s needs, including budgeting, cooking, child de- velopment, discipline, etc. The Northwest Region Resource Conservation and Development Councils “Chil- dren’s Garden Project” re- ceived $20,000 to provide a hands-on learning experi- ence for young children fo- cusing on where food comes from, healthy eating habits and physical activity. The Water Safety Pro- gram at Lowden Park Pool received $15,000 and the Hayfork Valley Park and Recreation District’s Wa- ter Safety Program received $6,610 to continue providing swim lessons to young chil- dren. Other programs that re- ceived grant funds are Trini- ty Life Support, $5,610 for pe- diatric emergency training;

North Trinity Lake Area/ Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire Department, $2,653 for pe- diatric emergency supplies;

Trinity Center Volunteer Fire Department, $11,000 for pediatric training equipment

that will be shared with oth-

er county emergency servic- es departments; the Under 6 Playing league, $2,870 to teach young children soccer, the importance of physical activity and sportsmanship; Weaverville Parent Nurs- ery School, $15,000 to con- tinue its Character Counts Program; Wee Care Drama Program, $5,645 to teach nutrition and dental health through the use of puppets and role playing; More Pre-

school, $17,762 to assist “over income” parents to pay for preschool; the Breastfeeding Promotion Project, $5,330

to continue its work in edu-

cating about the importance of breastfeeding; the 18th annual Children’s Festival, $3,000 to support this popu- lar community event. Eight mini-grants total-

ing $4,000 went to local child- care providers for curriculum purchases. The School Read- iness program will receive $100,000 and the CARES program will receive $8,000. First 5 Trinity County re- ceives its funding as a result

Stomp still in limbo

Trinity Tribal Stomp organizer Drew Franklin is scrambling to find a venue for the annual musical event. It will not be held at the Junction City Park this year as originally planned because the park is being used as a fire camp. Franklin had been working with the U.S. Forest Service in hopes of locating the Stomp at Ripstein Campground and meadow up Canyon Creek Road, but the interim Forest Service ranger has decided against allowing the event there. Franklin said he understands the decision given the fire season the county is experiencing, but he wished that the park

could have been kept free by setting the fire camp up elsewhere, such as private property across the highway which has been used for that purpose in the past. However, he added, “I can’t say anything would have worked with the condition of the fires.” The Stomp was to be held July 26 and 27. Franklin has not given up yet. He is considering holding evening concerts on those dates with the two top bands, Hot Buttered Rum and New Riders of the Purple Sage. There would be no overnight camping. Lee Fong Park is a possibility he is looking into, Franklin said.

‘Secret agents’ wanted for Vacation Bible School

Calling all “secret agents”:

The First Baptist Church of Weaverville will be hold- ing its annual Vacation Bible School this month with the theme of “Mission Possible.” The free event is for children in preschool to sixth grade.

Old fashion summer time fun for all the Camp Kimtu 4-H kids

4-H summer camp fun

4-H members started off their summer with a bang by attending Trinity Coun- ty 4-H Summer Camp June 17 and 18. Thanks to a mini- grant from the Trinity Trust, over 30 members of 4-H from all over the county were able to spend two days at beauti- ful Camp Kimtu. There was never a dull moment for the kids as they spent their time in activities such as wood burning, tie-dye, beading, fun lawn games, plus story- telling and s’mores around the campfire. Many thanks to all the 4-H leaders, and community members who helped make it happen:

Rhonda Noland and Heidi Jarnaghan for tie-dye and other craft supplies, Roger and Angie Brown for bead making and wood burning materials, Claudette McM- anus for providing a salm- on roast over the campfire, Cecile Cody for food pur- chase and being head camp cook, Damon and Sum- mer Brown for game sup- plies, Overburden Mining for wooden slabs, Caltrans for ice, Southern Trinity 4-H Club for donation to- ward craft supplies, Willow Creek Community Services District for reduced rate on camp rental, Sierra Brown for leading the lawn games, Trinity Livestock Barbecue

for donation of sausage, and the Trinity River 4-H Club for donating hours of com- munity service to help re- duce our camp fees. The Trinity 4-H program proudly announces the se- lection of senior 4-H member Jessica Cody of the Grass Val- ley Creek 4-H Club as a 2008-

2009 All Star. The rank of All Star is a working honor and

is the highest recognition that

a 4-H member may attain at

the County level. 4-H mem- bers who show growth, lead-

ership, and who have reached

a high level of achievement

in their 4-H career are eligi-

ble to apply for All Star. Jes- sica will implement her All Star project and be lending

a hand at 4-H County events

in the coming year. Welcome aboard, Jessica! Grass Valley Creek 4-H member Aren Lane complet- ed his 2008 Emerald Star Project and presented it to the 4-H Council on June 4. Aren spent four months se- lecting and editing 120 of Trinity County’s 4-H Favor- ite Foods Day recipes from the past 30 years, and then compiling them into a reci- pe booklet. His intention for doing this project is for the recipes 4-H members have come up with over the years to be remembered and used for years to come. Aren sug-

gested the 4-H Council could also use his booklet as a fund-raiser. His project will be on display at Achievement Day where he will receive his Emerald Star. Aren also par- ticipated in the 4-H Interna- tional Exchange program this summer, and spent one month in Finland living with a Finnish 4-H family on their working farm.

4-H members around the

county are spending the re- mainder of their summer in preparation for the Trin- ity County Fair Aug. 22-

24. Please help support the kids by coming to the Junior Livestock Auction on Satur- day, Aug. 23, at 2 p.m. in the Joe and Mary Borden Ju-

nior Show Ring at the Fair- grounds, or just come to the fair to admire the many oth- er exhibits the 4-H members will have on display in the exhibit halls. The next 4-H Council meeting will be Friday, Aug. 22, at 9 a.m. at the 4-H office conference room in Hayfork. If you are interested in join- ing a 4-H club, would like to become a 4-H leader, or have any questions about the 4-H Program, call Program Rep- resentative Audra Lane at the Trinity County Coopera- tive Extension Office at 628- 5495, open Monday-Thurs- day from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

As the River Flows

By TERRI LEACH & BECKY HALL hyampomer@earthlink.net Box 43, Hyampom, CA 96046

The fires rage on and eyes and throats are not the only things that are being irritat- ed. Folks are beginning to get a little snappish (though, no one has gone postal yet!). And then, with the lack of ox- ygen, some very odd things have gone down. For exam- ple: the road is open, the road is closed, the road is open; fire camp is in, fire camp is out; people ride their horses back- wards; and has anybody seen Alexis’s pink purse? A new “Structure Group” arrived in Hyampom on Sunday. They came to the fire hall to get oriented and are currently scouting the area. With them are five wa- ter tenders, three Type 3 fire engines, one Type 4 fire en- gine, and two Type 6 fire en- gines. They stopped by the General Store to assure us that their presence does not mean that we are in danger. Don’t panic! The Air Quality Board update says that air quali-

ty in the 299 corridor, and most of Trinity County in- cluding Hyampom, Hayfork and Weaverville is currently “Very Unhealthy.” Residents are advised to stay indoors with the doors and windows closed. Limit outdoor ex- posure. People with chron- ic lung or heart disease are advised to consult their phy- sician or leave the area. The Air Quality Board update phone number is: 1-866-287- 6329. For road condition up- dates, call CHP Road Condi- tions at 1-800-427-7623. We are informed that the Grouse Fire and the Hell’s Half Fire have merged, and it is now the Hell’s Half Fire. For more in- formation, call the Hell’s Half Complex fire information of- fice at 530-629-2184.

Information Center Web site www.jointinformation. com. The Hyampom Gener- al Store would appreciate it if you would call these num- bers for information; they are overwhelmed with calls. We can’t help but wonder if all of this smoke and ash is blocking the good rays that make the gardens grow. We can see some of the gardens from the road, and they still look good to us. Smoke or no smoke, our palates are still ready for some good old tasty home grown tomatoes! We’ve been in the beer garden, too, and the flowers are all look- ing real nice. From what we can tell, it all just seems to be affecting the people and the animals. Upcoming events seem to be on hold for now. All we can do is hope for these fires to be contained. We have heard that by the end of the month full containment is expected. It all depends on wind and weather.

Behavioral Health meeting

Trinity County Behav- ioral Health has announced

that on July 23 there will be a presentation and public hear- ing at the regularly sched- uled Mental Health Adviso- ry Board meeting of the new Community Services and Supports Plan for fiscal year 2008/2009. This meeting is

a timed item for 12:30 p.m.

at 1450 Main St. in Weaver- ville. The original plan was ap- proved by the state Depart- ment of Mental Health in February 2006, and modified in FY 2007/2008 to include an additional $79,000 in new resources. The plan to be reviewed on July 23 will include $150,000 in new funds to be spent pri- marily on direct services for clients with symptoms of

chronic and persistent men- tal illness. The infusion of new revenue into Trinity County due to the passage of the Mental Health Services Act has been a boon to local residents. The new plan will cost $605,600 to implement annually. Voters passed Proposi-

tion 63 in November 2004, and this review will give de- tails about the efforts these new resources have brought to Trinity County, specifical- ly related to the new drop-in centers, and to the full ser- vice partnerships that have been created. Nancy Antoon, director of Trinity County Behavior- al Health Services, will fa- cilitate this presentation and will answer questions from the public.

Winner announced in Gateway raffle

The winner of the wood raf- fle that benefits the Weaver-

ville Gateway Project is Rob- ert Radke of Junction City. The Weaverville Chamber of Commerce received five cords

of wood from the Weaverville

Community Forest, four of which were sold and one that was raffled off. Sierra Pacific has contrib-

uted two large granite boul- ders and has made a mon- etary donation toward the

project. The Gateway Com- mittee plans to proceed with moving the rocks in the near future. More funding is need- ed to purchase the metal for the creation of the trees and the “Welcome to Weaverville” signs, which will be installed on the east and west ends of town. To donate to this proj- ect, contact the Weaverville Chamber of Commerce at

623-6101.

One killed, one injured in rollover crash

The man who died in a ve- hicle accident near Del Loma on July 8 has been identified as 37-year-old Adam Arthur Buchan. Buchan was in the pro- cess of moving from Mis- sion Viejo to the Del Loma area. His girlfriend, Angela Marie Freeman, also 37, re- ceived moderate injuries in the collision. The California Highway Patrol said Buchan was driving a pickup westbound on Highway 299 west of Del Loma at 3:45 p.m. just be- fore the crash. The pickup went off the road in a down- hill left-hand curve, going off the north roadway edge and over a dirt and rock area until it slid sideways and began to overturn as it re-entered the road. The vehicle rolled several times, and Buchan, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected onto the pavement. The vehicle came to rest upright, blocking the east- bound lane. Buchan received severe injuries and died as an am- bulance was transporting him to a U.S. Forest Service helicopter landing zone. Freeman remained seat- belted in the vehicle and received moderate injuries. She was taken by Hoopa Ambulance to Mad River Hospital in Arcata and has since been released.

The Fourth of July pa- rade included some very special people this year. They are the young men and women of People First. This was a real highlight of the holiday for these young peo-

ple who had a great time. We’re always proud to see Paul Adams working with these kids and enjoying ev- ery minute of it. You weren’t seeing many people out in Junction City these past few weeks unless they were firefighters. The smoke has been a constant thing with us not being able to see the mountains around us most of the time. The Madrone trees are all losing their leaves and look- ing very bad.

It seems I had a never- ending birthday this year. Last Saturday, Carol Ar- thur gave me a birthday party in Douglas City. It also included a rafting trip. How surprised we were to see we could be on the river where there was no smoke. We had a small raft that Kim and I rode in. About a half mile before the end of the trip, the bottom broke on our raft. Thanks to Dave Wallace and his crew who towed us to the Draper’s to get out. We all then went to

the Arthur’s where we could sit out in the back yard and enjoy an evening without smoke. Nineteen people en- joyed this time on the river and around 22 attended the birthday party. Carol is the perfect hostess and the only downer was having to come home to the smoke. We still give all of our thanks to the firefighters who are out on the line do- ing their best to keep us all safe. Be sure to wave at the fire personnel and let them know how grateful we are.

Blazes present ‘enormous job,’ residents urged to prepare

FROM WILLIAM K AAGE INCIDENT COMMANDER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA INTER- AGENCY MANAGEMENT TEAM II

Long days will continue for

firefighters in Northern California. On June 20, this year’s summer solstice brought an extraordinary dry lightning storm that ignited nearly 1,000 fires across Northern California. The longest day and the shortest night of the year may have occurred on June 20, but

for firefighters, the days won’t be

getting shorter any time soon.

Northern California Interagency Incident Management Team

II (NorCal Team II), a Type-2

interagency incident management team, was brought in by the Shasta- Trinity National Forest to assist with managing the large number of fires that started on the forest as a

result of the storm. After intensive initial attack by the forest’s fire staff, NorCal Team II was delegated to manage

over 70 fires on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest’s South Fork Management Unit, an area of 781 square miles. This group of fires was named the Lime Complex. Shasta-Trinity National Forest firefighters continued to work with the additional firefighters brought

in by NorCal Team II, and within 48

hours, 25 of the fires were contained, leaving 45 still burning. Several fires received the highest priority, based on the protection of lives and property. As a result of

aggressive fire fighting, there are far fewer fires burning, but even

with about half of the fires out, there

is an enormous job ahead. Many of

the remaining fires are expected to grow together, as they are in

close proximity, making individual suppression efforts unsafe. The first day of summer in 2008 marked the beginning for many fires that may burn until the snow falls and challenge even seasoned firefighters by redefining success for wildland firefighting. What is most important is for communities to be alert and prepared by having an evacuation plan, and for all community members to know where their safety zones are located. The fire organization on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest is highly skilled and extremely professional. They will have the assistance of various incident management teams and firefighters from all over the country this summer. But we must remember

the limitations of human beings when confronted with extreme forces of nature.

Firefighters appreciate support

FROM PAUL BROYLES INCIDENT COMMANDER GREAT BASIN NATIONAL INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM

As Incident Commander of the Iron and Alps Complexes, I want to express sincere gratitude for your steadfast support while we have managed these fires over the last three weeks. As Trinity County residents,

I know many of you have been

through this before, but I also know experience doesn’t make it any easier. The fires have disrupted

your daily lives, your peace of mind, and your livelihoods. Yet despite your concerns, you have offered us hospitality and encouragement, always expressing consideration for

the welfare of the firefighters.

I hope you will continue to

support incoming fire managers. Like you, I am concerned that your fire season started so early this year, and I realize it will be difficult

Library not at fault

FROM VERONICA GRAY LEWISTON

In reply to “Books missing in Lewiston” (Feedback, July 9):

First and foremost, consider this.

A donation is a “donation.” Once you

give, does it matter where it goes from there? If a donation of a book was

not meant to be given, I would say

that is the giver’s “mistake,” not the Lewiston library’s. The donors of the library put so much of their life into running this community “nonprofit” service for it to be slandered in such

a way. I am horrified that this type

of petty malice is directed toward

this historical structure. What a

shame!

Gives thanks to responders

FROM JUDITH DAYE LEWISTON

In the midst of fire, smoke and

long hours, the Trinity emergency team came to my rescue. My husband had died and they were there at my house before dawn

in less than 15 minutes. They

were efficient, kind and extremely professional. They knew what to

do to make a distressing situation

less chaotic. They were truly great neighbors. They are what make our little county outstanding. Thank you with all my heart, especially Sissy, Katie and Mel. I love you all.

On behalf of the Grass Valley Creek 4-H Club, I would like to

thank everybody who supported us

Again, we on the Great Basin National Incident Management Team thank you for your understanding and courage through this incident. We appreciate your concern, we value your support, and we will keep you in our thoughts as we move through the balance of the 2008 fire season.

‘Adopt your neighbor’

FROM BARBARA STORTZ, CAPTAIN, TRINITY COUNTY SHERIFFS POSSE

I don’t know what will be

happening with any of the fires by the time this letter is printed. I do know that, as it is written, we are

in a state of emergency. A lot of our volunteers have been out there since day one or day two. Lots of people’s health is suffering. This is first and

foremost a plea to all who are in harm’s way to adopt their neighbors. Check in on people, see if they need any help, especially the elderly. Most of our seasoned citizens are real

troopers, hanging in there well past their limits. Their health especially needs to be safeguarded. Just check in on them. If they need help, make

a simple call. And since I actually have a moment, I do want to acknowledge the hard work of the fine folks of the Trinity County Sheriff’s Posse, among many other outstanding groups helping. Plus, Bill Murphy, Dave Johnson and Larry Crothers stepped up with applications in time to help fulfill the Posse’s obligation to the community for the Fourth’s Destruction Derby pit security. They

are all fine additions to an already outstanding list of volunteers. Since I’m taking this precious

time to write, I did get a little sidetracked in my intent to write in and compliment the people who made the Lewiston Peddler’s Faire what many said was the best ever. The whole community seemed to be pulling together to pull it off. I think we worked with the Loyal Order of the Moose in affiliation with the Lewiston Merchants’ Association, but I saw all sorts of other volunteers out there helping too. I just loved the carload of De- Litter Bugs who announced they were there to work. Of course, I am biased and my favorite part was the folks who stopped to say thanks for

the work the Posse does. Bless you! If you aren’t already out there helping and want something to do, adopt your neighbor (please!). Guard your own health and take an active interest in guarding the health of those around you. We really are all in this together. And I’m putting my money on the people of Trinity County every time. Please, God, keep us safe and somewhat sane.

Faults Bush for fire response

FROM JOHN RAPF HYAMPOM

It’s not surprising that Jim Fattig

has tried to capitalize on the current fires to spread his propaganda (Feedback, July 9). Every time there is a major fire, Jim or someone like him jumps on the opportunity to blame everyone but himself and to promote his narrow log-it-all approach to forest management.

If Jim really knew and cared

for these woods as he claimed in

his recent letter, then he would

know that fire is as much a part of

a healthy forest as rain, wind and

sun. He would acknowledge that the

well-intentioned, 100-year policy of putting out every forest fire was a tragic mistake and we are likely to

face a generation of fires like we are experiencing now before we get back

to a normal healthy forest. The truth is we had an unusual but

natural lightning event that started these fires. My experience from walking the woods of Butter Creek and in talking to the firefighters is that the fires have for the most part been low to the ground, slow-burning fires that will leave the forest far healthier than before. Like most of us and the firefighters themselves, I wish we could snap our fingers and put them

out. However, a government led by George W. Bush, John McCain and Wally Herger has left us with our own Hurricane Katrina. Thanks

to folks like Jim Fattig, who no doubt voted twice for Bush, we are left with a government that cannot respond effectively to emergencies of this scale. So, Mr. Fattig, before you point your nasty finger at others, do what real mountain people do

FROM JACK SCRIBNER AND THE FRIENDS OF THE OLD LEWISTON SCHOOLHOUSE LIBRARY AND MUSEUM

In our 15 years of service to the general public, the Old Lewiston Schoolhouse has been the recipient of countless donations. These have come in the form of historical arti- facts for our museum, cash dona- tions for our treasury and, of course, books for our library. In respect to the latter, we have seen some tens of thousands of books that came to us in the form of library donations over the years. Only about 6,500 of these have end- ed up in the library proper, fully ac- cessible to our patrons for check out or reference. Space limitations are the primary reason for this, as one might imagine, but our fairly rigid criteria for accepting books and oth- er materials for inclusion in our li- brary come into play as well. These criteria include the new- ness and/or currency of the item, the popularity of the author or title and the relevance of the subject matter and how it pertains to the reading habits of our patrons. Unlike many small libraries, we have instituted a rather liberal ac- ceptance policy regarding donated materials. We’ve even taken Read- er’s Digest condensed books, outdat- ed textbooks and esoteric techni- cal manuals—items most libraries would refuse. All rejected books are re-directed towards other worth- while endeavors; and no books are ever put to waste. We regularly donate some of our “library discards” to other north state libraries and institutions, both public and private, that accept such donations. A few, mostly classics and collectible books, are stored lovingly in our archive, for the sake of preser- vation, never to be stamped or card- ed, and rarely handled. Many more books that come in are sold by us, the proceeds of which benefit our orga- nization exclusively. Still more, and indeed the majority, are sent to the nearest book recycling center to be turned back into reading materials. Absolutely none of our discards are ever disposed of in a landfill. We’ve taken pains to make these policies clear to our generous donors. Another policy we publicize: Any donor uncomfortable with the possi- bility that their donated items may not end up in our library has the option of receiving them back once we’ve rejected them, as long as we know their wishes at the time we re- ceive the items. By the same token, in the rare instance a donation is re- ported as “accidental”, every reason- able effort will be made by library staff to retrieve that item and re- turn it to its owner. Therein lies a formidable prob- lem. Our library sees, on average, a figure in the triple digits each week of books, videos and audio books that are left as donations “for our li-

brary.” As most of these are, for one or more reasons, considered unsuit- able for inclusion in our library’s stock, they promptly are boxed and stored, usually on the same day they’re received, for transport to other destinations, as cited above. The volunteers who staff the library simply don’t have the time or energy to unpack and repack dozens of un- wieldy boxes whenever a book turns up missing AND proceed with con- ducting the day to day business of the library. As a palliative, some of our vol- unteers have, at their own expense, purchased books from online book sources, only to donate them to the Schoolhouse Library, in order to supplement library stock. These ma- terials are acquired to replace items that have been checked out by pa- trons and never returned, as well as to address patron requests for spe- cific titles that have never come in as donations. This “service” is available to any patron who has a legitimate claim of having requested the return of their donated materials that we were un- able to locate. All we need is the ti- tle, author and publication date, and, if the item is available and the

purchase is not cost prohibitive, i.e. rare, collectible or antique books, we can have a replacement copy within

a few days usually, all at no cost to

the individual. For the record, we’d like to stress the importance of patrons refrain- ing from leaving donated items in our book return receptacle behind the building. All donations should be brought into the library during patron hours, Thursday through Monday, 2 to 5 p.m. (except Satur- day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), or call us, 778-0111, to arrange pick up of do- nations. We cannot be held responsi- ble for non-library materials depos- ited there outside of working hours. This policy is clearly posted on the door of the book return. Recent concerns expressed by one of our patrons about our proce- dures have necessitated this letter to the editor.

Those of us who’ve dedicated our- selves to public service through our volunteerism with the Old Lewiston Schoolhouse Library and Museum have always worked toward main- taining a fully-functioning, high quality institution that caters to the needs of everyone in our community. With the sorry state of affairs we’ve all witnessed in our nation- al economy, combined with the cut- backs in public library funding by government, now more than ever do we need the services of our nation’s small rural libraries. Please help support our library and museum with your continued donations of quality books and videos, historical artifacts and the necessary funding

it takes to serve such a generous and

deserving community. We’re count- ing on your help. And please know that you can keep counting on us.

Trinity’s Lively Arts

By JANE M. BELDEN (530) 623-5319 Jstewartbelden@dcacable.net

Weaverville’s July 4th cel- ebration went off without

a pause excepting the fire-

works that were canceled. This weekend was the first chance I had since the June Art Cruise to take part in the

art activities. I’m glad to back sitting at my computer doing my job as columnist for Trini- ty’s Lively Arts. I started out on Thurs- day evening July 3 by attend- ing the Melodrama, “Egad! The Woman in White” at the Trinity Alps Performing Arts Center. It was really enjoy- able and the cast did a fine job, helped along with a su- perb set and an unforgettable wall that followed the actors across the stage and back.

It was designed and built by

Marty and Richard Parachi- ni. The costumes were mostly remodeled and fitted from the

Player’s costume collection by Karen Hidey who also de- signed and made the charm- ing hats used throughout the production. Director Marilyn Cook and producer Jackie Rae- Travers really worked hard

to pull together the produc-

tion in spite of difficulties that arose during rehearsals from personal problems and the fires. The fire kept some

of the audience away, but a

small profit was made for the Players. Profit from pro- ductions helps keep the the- ater on its feet financially. So when you support the produc-

tions and musical events you are supporting the efforts of

the Board of Directors, the cast and crews to keep this wonderful theater going. Friday there was much going on at the Highland Art Center with the annu- al Art and Craft Faire in the Meadow. They booked in 45 booths this year. I would say the crowd was only about 10 percent down from a normal year, with the Congregation- al Church Ice Cream Social next door and the parade with the marching Commu- nity Band which started out playing at the bandstand for the bell ringing then lined up for the parade. A group of bagpipers marched in the

parade and then played at one of the bars. They kept that part of town active most of the day. Even the smoke cooperated and blue sky and puffy white clouds added to the day. In the meadow, the Free Box Band entertained all day. Inside the gallery was “Trial by Fire - Exploitations of the Vessel,” a fabulous pot-

tery exhibition by Dan Moly- neux who returned to Trini- ty County from the east coast to present his work. On Sat- urday night, the reception was filled with his support- ers and many patrons bought his pieces. Dan’s work shows that he makes the best use of his own studio time to do his own fine art work. High-

land reported that the work is selling fast. On The Art Cruise Sat- urday night, Mike Schardin showed his son, a friend and the boys’ teachers from Costa Rica, who traveled to Weaver- ville for the Fourth, through the galleries. At the 5 Windows Gal- lery, Betty Pestoni was the featured artist. Her paint- ings are special and the com- ments positive. This is a show that you won’t want to miss. It is beautiful. At Umpqua Bank, Vickie Hazard is the featured artist and at the Chamber of Commerce Kar- en Hammer and Don Brad- bury are featured. At Picture Perfect, artist Allison Tal- bott has her work displayed. Main Street Gallery has an eclectic display honoring Red White and Blue. On July 4, Mamma Lla- ma had Deeta Pasero Belly- dance perform. On Saturday night, July 12, Dorian Mi- chael and Kenny Blackwell played at Mamma Llama. They were fantastic and the audience didn’t want them to leave. They were driv- ing back to Paso Robles af- ter the concert so had to be on their way. I bought one of their CDs, “All Dressed Up.” My favorite song is “Red Haired Boy.” Next week, the concert at Mamma Llama is a group called Molly’s Re- venge Celtic Music on Fri- day, July 18, at 8 p.m.

From the North 40

By BETTY EYMAN (530) 266-3440 bettyeyman@tds.net

When I was working in the corporate world, someone once advised me if I were to

make a mistake, make it large enough to be easily caught.

I took it to heart then and I

practice it still to this day. My most current mistake was SO HUGE Lion Bernie found

it even before the ink dried. I

gave John Wagner credit for

a triple honor at the initiation night at the Trinity Lake Li- ons Club recently - which I am sorry, John, was not true.

I would have given it to you,

but in the process I would not be acknowledging the people who truly earned the credits. I know that it looks like I have skipped town in shame and afraid to face the wrath of the Lions Club, but that is not the case. I am in San-

ta Rosa for reasons that span across the board: my grand-

daughter’s wedding recep- tion, my second daughter’s birthday and funeral services

for one of my favorite cousins.

I am coming home Tues-

day, that is if I can get up SR 299. I will get the correct in- formation for the Lions in-

stallation and have it in next

week’s column. The CCVFD Fireflies

want to invite you to the Pan- cake Breakfast on Sunday, July 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be at the CCVFD Fire

Hall where pancakes, eggs, sausage, orange juice and cof- fee will be served. Uncle Dick- ey and I have been at the last two pancake breakfasts, and they were wonderful.

I will have a full column

next week, correcting mis- takes (sorry Lions) and cov- ering all our needed calendar information.

It’s Been Fun!

The Garden Bed

By CHRISTINA JOHNSON, 623-0233

Herb of the Week - St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum): St. John’s Wort is one of my favorite herbs. Internally, I use it to calm my nervous system, to increase my ability to han- dle stress. Externally, I use it for dry skin, lips, dry crack- ing hands and feet, cuts, sun- burns and other burns. St. John’s Wort, as a tea or tinc- ture, has been used for cen- turies as an herbal mood el- evator specifically affecting the nervous system. It may help with nerve-related prob- lems such as stress, stress- related headaches, anxiety, tension, restlessness, insom- nia, depression, melancholy, pain, grief, chronic fatigue and sciatica. In extensive historic as well as more re- cent studies, St. John’s Wort has been found to be an effec- tive option for management of mild to moderate depres- sion. It has been shown to increase one’s ability to con- centrate, to act as a nerve re- generative and to help in the inhibition of the AIDS virus. St. John’s Wort, used exter- nally, as oil, has also been used for thousands of years for treating trauma to mus-

cle or nerve tissue. It has an- tibacterial agents and reduc- es inflammation. St. John’s Wort oil is healing for cuts, scrapes, wounds, mild burns, sunburns, bruises, sprains and injuries to the nerves, especially in the fingers and toes. It can also be effective in relieving rheumatic pain. I have a friend who had a se- rious wound from compound fractures and nerve damage. The wound would not heal on its own or with any drugs or ointments from the doctor. She tried St. John’s Wort oil and within five days it was clear that her wound would heal and the pain was dissi- pating. Herbal Alternatives - Sciatica: Sciatica is defined as pain along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body that goes from the lower back to the thigh. Pain is usually due to the sciatic nerve being irritated or com- pressed, often by a herniat- ed disk of the lumbar region of the spine. Sciatica is usual- ly treated with pain relievers or anti-inflammatory med- icines, injections of anti-in- flammatory steroids or sur-

gery. Alternatives include supporting your immune sys- tem and using specific pain relieving and anti-inflamma- tory herbs that help to relieve sciatic pain. Herbs that grow locally that may help include:

1) St. John’s Wort used inter- nally as tea or tincture or ex- ternally as an oil; 2) Two ta- blespoons of elderberry juice taken twice a day; 3) Mug- wort leaf tea; 4) Elecampane root used externally as a poul- tice; 5) Flogging (urtication) with fresh nettles external- ly; 6) Garlic. Other herbs that may be helpful but don’t grow locally include Black Cohosh dried root as tea or tincture, and Wintergreen and/or Tea Tree oil applied externally.

Trinity County Fair Board of Directors will hold its regular monthly meet- ing Thursday, July 17, in the board room at the fair- grounds at 6:30 p.m. Every- one is invited. The fair will be Aug. 22, 23, and 24. The tractor pull for the children is free. Bob Hildebrand and family are busy working on some new buildings for the Homestead area. Elsie Glass was out to lunch at Irene’s the oth- er day, accompanied by Bob and Sherry Brownlee, Sarah Sharp and her two children Adelyn and Cooper. Adelyn was very excited as she was going to go to Uncle Larry’s store, Ernie’s Department Store, to pick out a new toy. Sarah and her two children visited her parents in Lewis- ton while Keith was working long hours in Burney. That was four generations of the Glass family having lunch. Mike and Shirley Arm- stead recently flew back to Wisconsin to see their son Jay, and his family off to Is- rael. They will be serving in a humanitarian ministry while over there, plus learning He- brew for the purpose of doing some translation work. Israel has just started some football teams, so Jay, Nathan and

Jason are hoping they can somehow get involved in that. They will be there for about 2 1/2 years. A Celebration of Life was held at the L & M Ranch for LaVerne Laffranchini. It was July 13 and LaVerne would have been 101 years old. Last year she was the parade mar- shall for the Trinity Coun- ty Fair Parade. She wanted to live to be a hundred and she did. La Verne was a great poet and many of her poems were read. Many fond memo- ries of her living on the ranch were recalled by friends and family. She was a very ac- tive square dancer for many years. Several will remem- ber LaVerne for her beauti- ful penmanship. Her mind remained sharp and she en- joyed showing friends and family her wonderful pic- tures. She always remem- bered to call friends and fam- ily on their birthdays. She was a great volunteer, hard worker and a historian. She will be greatly missed! The fires and the smoke they bring have curtailed many of the activities in Hay- fork. Summer in the Park at- tendance and vendors were down. Those in attendance enjoyed the entertainment, from Habibiyyat al Jabal of

Hayfork to the Code Violators band from Southern Trinity. Donna Tamaddoni is out of Mexico for three months. She was visiting with her daughter April and grandson Isaiah in the Bay Area. We were visiting with Dave Godfrey and he told me how his daughter Danell Bagnaschi had been doing some research on his saddle. I looked up www.paradesad- dlearchive.com/silverdollar. htm and it has pictures of Dave Godfrey, his silver sad- dle, his horse and his mule. I also saw a picture of Danell riding in the Weaverville pa- rade. Take a look and see for yourself. Dave Godfrey has been in many parades with his Ted Flowers saddle and silver dollar jacket. The power was off two dif- ferent days here in the Hay- fork Valley. That seems nat- ural in winter but not in summer. For you that live out of state and read this column, we have a Red Cross Cen- ter set up for evacuees. The smoke here in the valley is bad, but many feel that it was worse during the 1987 fires. Various roads have been closed off and on, but those that have lived here for a few years are aware of alternate roads that lead to Hayfork.

Program on fragrant plants at Garden Club meeting

Members and guests of the Trinity Garden Club will meet at the home of Bill and Judy Derryberry on Thurs-

day, July 17, at 9:30 a.m. for a potluck brunch. Virginia Up- degrave will give a short pro- gram on the history and cul-

ture of fragrant plants. For more information, call Pres- ident Rusty Lester at 623-

Douglas City Diggins

By SANDY EVANS 623-2117 saltflat@snowcrest.net

FLOAT PARTY: The “Douglas City-Junction City Flotilla,” led by Jane Draper, formed up, putting 13 rafts and kayaks into the water of Lewiston’s Bucktail Launch Site last Saturday. Carol and Dennis Arthur, with Jim (al- ways faithful) Farmer were the organizers. Steve Eck- hardt led the way in a bright red kayak while most of the real crazies, including Bev and Jim Martin, Bev’s wild sister Jeanie from Utah, and 12-year-old Haley were in a blue raft. Dave Wallace liter- ally trolled (towed) Kim and Sue Rasmussen’s raft along behind like fish bait. The group celebrated Kim’s birth- day and wanted to give her something special this year - like being drowned! That awful Karen Ashley was also there spreading discord, squirting everybody with her water-blaster, laughing so hard she got hiccups. June Farmer and Lynn McElroy as always were sneaky lit- tle critters who would creep up behind innocent people with blasts of their water- guns. Dan Davenport, on his new cat/fisher, and Marleen Barnes, who is really getting

to feel comfortable in her kay-

ak, were having a great time. We pulled ashore at the Ar- thur’s beachfront to enjoy

a barbecue in Sue’s honor.

Jane says that Dave Wallace was hilarious, keeping every- one entertained during the 2 hour 40 minute float. (Re- garding this story: I asked Dave to write it up in his fun

and lively style after spotting the group float by last Satur- day. Thanks Dave.) WATER TOWER; We are

Jan Burger of Deerlick Springs Road met firefight- ers, men and women who had flown in from Fairbanks, Alaska. They were in two buses that had stopped at the Douglas City Store before continuing to the Deerlick Springs Lime Fire. They said it was like leaving a refrigera- tor and entering an oven. Tom Kempton, a battalion chief in Anchorage, is serving as Pub-

lic Affairs spokesman. Their group is one of 17 “National Type-1 Incident Management

Teams.” They have worked hurricanes, wildfires and “9/11” as experienced crews. “The Alaska Inter-Agency

Type-1Team did take com- mand of the fire on Monday, based at the Incident Com- mand Post in Hayfork Fair-

grounds. A total of 56 fire pro- fessionals flew in on July 4th from Fairbanks to Redding.” Somewhere between 230-260 National Guard personnel are expected this week. Gay Ber- rien says our Trinity firefight-

ers have gone long distances

to fight fires as well.

WATER: Oh how we ap-

preciate water! There is a new business in our town named Trinity County Oasis, LLC. The truck has a huge white water container which carries potable water. There are people who live in areas where they’ve run out of wa- ter and the Chancellors de- liver it to them. The owners would like to get contracts like the food service at the fires, bringing drinking wa-

ter in large quantities. Cur-

tis Chancellor does the heavy work and Tina Chancellor is the bookkeeper. The fam-

ily lives along the riverfront where their sons Alex, Adam and Aaron enjoy the outdoor life. They are reachable at 623-4848, or cell (530) 623- 4848. Watch for the white truck with a blue and green logo on the door and say hello to our new neighbors. LOG CABIN: A firefight- er at the D.C. Firehouse con- firmed the existence of the log cabin a long way out on Deerlick Springs Road. The family has had a tradition of coming for the Fourth of July for many years.

NOTIFICATION OF EVIDENTIARY HEARINGS REGARDING PROPOSED RATE INCREASE JOINT FILING OF PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY (APPLICATION NO. 07-12-006)

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is reviewing a Joint Application by Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), San Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) which was filed on December 11, 2007.

Evidentiary hearings for the above referenced matter are scheduled for July 21, 2008, at 10:00 a.m. with additional hearing dates of July 22-23 if needed. All hearings will take place in the Commission Courtroom, State Office Building, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, California.

Evidentiary hearings are where parties of record present their proposals in testimony and are subject to cross-examination before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). These hearings are open to the public, but only those who are parties of record are allowed to present evidence or cross-examine witnesses during evidentiary hearings.

Below please find “Summary of Utilities’ Proposal” which provides an overview of this application filing.

SUMMARY OF UTILITIES’ PROPOSAL

The Joint Application proposes a modification to the methods currently used to allocate costs of natural gas public purpose programs and other state-mandated social programs among customer classes. State mandated social program charges currently include, among others, costs associated with the following programs: California Alternate Rates for Energy (a program offering rate discounts to low income customers); low income energy efficiency; energy efficiency; research, development and demonstration; state Board of Equalization administrative costs for collecting and disbursing funds for the programs listed above; a self-generation incentive program, the California Solar Water Heating Program, and administrative costs to maintain these programs. These state-mandated natural gas social programs are public benefit programs which are funded by customers through natural gas rates, and are currently based on the amount of natural gas consumed.

This Joint Application does not request any change to the programs themselves, the level of funding or the amount of assistance or benefit provided under these programs. This Joint Application only proposes that funding be based in proportion to what each customer class pays for basic gas service. The utilities assert that this Joint Application would reallocate the costs of the programs among customer classes in a straight-forward and fair manner.

The request does not ask for an increase in overall rates, merely a reallocation of current rates. For PG&E, this proposal, if approved, would result in an estimated increase in an average residential gas customer bill of $0.67 per month, spread over the next three years. Therefore, the bill impact in the first year would be $0.22. The proposed effect on customer rates by customer class would be allocated as follows:

The Lowden Aquatic Park Project (LAPP) and the Weaverville/ Douglas City Parks and Recreation District began construction on the new Lowden Park Pool with a ground- breaking ceremony on Thursday. Man- ning the shovels are Brandt Gutermuth of LAPP, Turner Jones of the recreation district, Graham Matthews of LAPP and Alan Paul of the recreation dis- trict. The new pool will be constructed next to the existing pool so the current season will not be disrupted.

Kathy Milovich and Stephanie Rumley of Coast Central Credit Union present a $13,000 donation for the pool project to Graham Matthews, president of LAPP. The organization has raised most of the money for this project from local donors and grant funds.

Fishing Report

By E. B. Duggan (530) 629-3554 yen2fish@yahoo.com

Trinity Lake is 63 feet be- low the over flow and 63.6 per- cent of capacity. Average in- flow to the lake is 497 cfs and 1,474 cfs is being released to the Sacramento River. Water Flows: Trinity River at Lewis- ton is 973 cfs water temps of 49.6; air is 85 degrees at 12 p.m. Limekiln Gulch is 936 cfs at 5.4 feet. Douglas City is 980 cfs at 3.2 feet water temps of 52.2, air is 88. Helena/North Fork is 1,270 cfs at 10.8 feet water temps of 55.7, air is 86. Cedar Flat is 1,300 cfs at 4.7 feet. Willow Creek estimated at 1,406 cfs water temps of 59, air is 78 degrees. Hoopa is 1,820 cfs at 13 feet water temps of 62 de- grees. Mouth of Trinity River at Klamath is 4,220 cfs wa- ter at 64 degrees. Klamath River releases at Iron Gate are 1,020 cfs. Seiad Valley is 1,340 cfs at 2.3 feet. Happy Camp is estimated at 1,360 cfs. Somes Bar estimated at 1,850 cfs. Orleans is 2,400 cfs at 4 feet. Klamath at 101 is 5,080 cfs at 9.6 feet water temps of 67 degrees. Last week’s temperatures for the Trinity Valley were 100/58 degrees with no rain for the week, with smoke and morning overcast; total rain- fall for the season 78.65 inch- es. Forecasts for next week are for 89/53 with smoke and some morning fog through the weekend. Cal Fire and USFS are able to get some of the fires under containment, but others are flaring up. The smoke from Cedar Flat through Hoopa has been horrible; helicopters have not been able to fly out of Wil- low Creek except in the late af- ternoons because the smoke is so thick in the mornings I can’t even see across the river most of the time until after noon. Friday they were grounded all day. If you were to catch a salmon, all you would have to do is gut it and hang it up and by morning it would be smoked for you. The Upper Trinity is see- ing some fresh springers around Douglas City, but be- cause of the $5 per gallon of gas and the fires and smoke, fishermen are not coming up to fish. I agree that the smoke makes it very hard to stick around and fish when it is hard to breathe, but if it is halfway clear and you do come up to fish, you will

have the river practically all to yourself. When you can lo- cate some salmon between the South Fork of the Trinity and D.C., you will hook some nice ones in the 7 to 15 pound range. Roe seems to be doing the trick. On the Lower Trinity, we are somehow being graced with hatchery steelhead that are being landed anywhere from 11 to 16.5 pounds. I know of two steelies that were 9 and 12 pounds caught on spinners down in the Hoo- pa area. I also know that a 16.5 pound, gutted and gilled steelie was landed just before you come into the Pearson Hole using a Bud’s spinner. That was one of the biggest hatchery fish I know of be- ing taken on the Trinity Riv- er. I would estimate it to be around 18 pounds if it had not been cleaned and gilled. The bad part is that there were no pictures taken of it. This is telling me that there are going to be some powerful large iron heads in the Trin- ity this year and some are already here. With the con- dition of the river and the wa- ter flows dropping, the Saly- er to Hoopa section of the river is ready for some great steelhead fishing right now. Spoons and spinners would be the best hardware, but you might be able to use roe and have a chance to hook a salmon. If you are fishing be- low the mouth of the South Fork, you will NOT be able to keep the salmon, but you can take a pic and release it. Any hatchery steelhead you land you may keep. Down in the Weitchpec area on the Klamath, there has been some fair to good steelhead fishing as well as some good spring salm- on being hooked. My contact down at E NE NUCK camp has landed some nice iron heads 9 to 13 pounds. John sent me a picture of his 13- pounder and was it a beau- ty. Farther up the Klamath, some fair to good trout fish- ing has been on the menu for those able to take the smoke. When fishing the Klamath around Happy Camp, you have to make sure that there are no road closures from the fires so you don’t get stuck in the wrong area. You want to be sure that you are fishing close to your car just in case.

Afternoon closure at gun range

Due to the unusually high risk of wildland fire, the Lewiston Gun Club will voluntarily close all three of its shooting ranges at noon every day, until further notice. This applies to club activities as well as public use. This action does not cause cancellation of any events on the current schedule. The starting time for all club events will remain at 9 a.m. Earlier starting times for some events may be activat- ed if necessary. Any changes in the schedule will be posted on the club’s Web site, www. lewistongunclub.org.

The club established a voluntary, ongoing fire pre- vention plan with the United States Forest Service and Cal Fire. Crews spent two days in mid-June, before the cur- rent fires broke out, working on fuel reduction at all three ranges. Hours for use by the gen- eral public are 7 a.m. to noon weekdays and Sundays. Shooters are asked to exer- cise extreme caution while using the ranges. The club does not permit the use of tracer ammunition, ammuni- tion with steel, steel-tipped or steel-jacketed bullets, or shot- shells with steel shot.

Evacuation notices in west Co. Bed tax mulled

(Continued from page 1)

between Buckhorn Summit and Redding due to burnouts related to the Motion Fire in Shasta County. From the Iron Complex of fires, Fire Information Officer Bill Paxton said “red flag” conditions in Trinity County over the past week have made things difficult for firefighters, particularly on the Cedar and Eagle fires as both crossed containment lines. He said toward the end of the week the Cedar Fire had a crown run in the treetops, and there was a similar situation on the southeast flank of the Eagle Fire. “We had to make a bigger box around the fire,” he said. “Move back to a strategic location and try to hold it.” More resources are coming this way as fires are controlled elsewhere, he said, and firefighters are making progress. Trinity County, Caltrans and the national forests have websites and phone numbers that provide current information (see info box). On Tuesday, the status of the various fires burning

in Trinity County was as follows:

Iron Complex The Iron Complex now includes the Alps Complex fires, and together they have burned 45,257 acres and are at 45 percent containment

overall with full containment expected Aug. 15. Due to the 10,016-acre Cedar Fire in the Iron Complex, there are mandatory evacuations for Cedar Flat

and nearby Friedrich Road,

and Corral Bottom. Swede Creek is under a voluntary evacuation and there is an evacuation advisory for Del

Loma. The Cedar Fire is only 15 percent contained. Also in the Iron Complex,

the Zeigler Fire is at 1,999

acres and is 90 percent contained. Due to the

Zeigler Fire there are is

a voluntary evacuation

for Trinity Village and

advisory evacuations for

the

remainder of Hawkins

Bar

and Denny. Mandatory

evacuation orders for Fisher Ranch Road from the Colony to the end of the road have been lifted and those residences are now under an

evacuation advisory. Also on the Iron Complex, the Eagle Fire is 11,762 acres and 50 percent contained, and the Ironside Fire is 12,720 acres and 92 percent contained.

Hells Half Complex The fires southwest of Burnt Ranch cover 9,698 acres in eastern Humboldt County and western Trinity County, and the Grouse Fire and the Half Fire have merged. Containment is at 29 percent. The heavy smoke inversion that has blanketed areas surrounding the complex began to slowly lift on Monday, improving visibility. With the change in weather, fire managers expect fire activity to increase, but say this will allow better use of aerial resources. The most active areas of the

fire were in the northwestern corner near Mingo Creek and south near the western side of the 2006 Panther Fire and the South Fork of the Trinity River. As a result of these fires, there are mandatory evacuations for an area northwest of Hyampom,

starting at Manzanita Ranch Road to west of the South Fork of the Trinity River to Big Slide Campground, and from there west to the Humboldt County line and north back up to Manzanita Ranch Road. A Hyampom community meeting about the Hells Half and Lime complexes has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, at the Hyampom Fire Hall.

Lime Complex These fires have burned 77,488 acres and are 59 percent contained with full containment expected Aug. 15. California National Guard crews have provided support to firefighters on the Lime and Telephone fires in the complex. Several fires have grown together. There are currently no evacuations associated with this complex.

Mad Complex Located on the Six Rivers Forest in the Mad River Ranger District, these fires burned 3,705 acres and were 100 percent contained on July 12.

10 percent. Representatives of the chambers of commerce recently requested that the board of supervisors consider placing a rate increase on the November ballot. Though not scheduled as an action item, the group’s proposal was presented to the board as an informational item during its first meeting in July. After hearing a number of divided viewpoints during that presentation, the group has since decided to hold off on the ballot request for this year and conduct more community discussions about how to proceed for the future. The proposal presented to the board would seek voter approval to raise the hotel tax rate from 5 to 10 percent and convert it to a special tax to be used solely for promoting the county and for public safety. It would allocate 10 percent of the revenue to the county as an administrative fee and distribute a locked-in percentage of the remaining funds as follows: 40 percent to the Trinity County Chamber of Commerce; 5 percent to both the Weaverville and Hayfork chambers of commerce; 12 percent to the museum and arts council; 9 percent to the fair; and 3 percent to the Humboldt/ Trinity Recreation Alliance. The Trinity County Fire Chiefs Association would be added to the list and receive 14 percent of the revenue. The concept drew a mixed reaction from board members. Supervisor Judy Pflueger said she was glad to see movement toward increasing the rate to at least 10 percent which would still be one of the lowest in the state, but asked for more details about the group’s intent and direction for using the money. “I’m concerned that spreading it so far and thin to so many parties isn’t going to accomplish what we all want which is to promote the county as a whole, all working together,” she said. Furthermore, she argued that listing the specific recipients is restrictive and doesn’t leave the door open for new ones who might have good ideas for promoting the county. PatZuggsaidsheagrees“it would be nice to concentrate it all into one, but I don’t think it will pass that way. We’ve all worked hard to get this passed before and it hasn’t. This is the first time I’ve seen everybody coming on board and the way to do that is to guarantee that everybody will get some of it.” Supervisor Howard Freeman suggested that the effort might be more successful if it starts with circulating petitions to place

the item on the ballot rather than asking the board of supervisors to put it there. “If we do it, it comes across as government putting its hand out which isn’t as successful,” he said. Supervisor Jeff Morris thanked the group members for taking the lead in the effort, but said he also is concerned “we’re just continuing to split the pie in the same small parts and we don’t have the economy of scale to really do something.” He added that he is fearful of any proposal that would lock in the percentages “and accountability if someone isn’t performing. How do we deal with that?” From the audience, Gail Goodyear of Weaverville said she is also concerned about the lack of accountability that could result from guaranteeing the recipients a specific annual percentage of the revenue. She suggested that each recipient should be required to prove eligibility and present an annual plan for the money as well as a full accounting of how the previous year’s allocation was spent. “I’m really concerned about the percentages and locking something in forever and ever,” she said. Howard Freeman shared the same concern, saying “it’s not that I don’t trust people to try to do the right thing with the money, but all these organizations have had challenges — memberships fall off, but the dollars stay the same and from a voter’s perspective, there’s no assurance.” Bill McCoy from the Trinity County Historical Society defended the percentage concept, saying the groups are accountable to their members “and if we don’t perform, we suffer the consequences. Percentage is a good thing — it lets the voters know what they’re voting for and won’t create another bureaucracy to administer it aside from the one we already have with the county.” Time is short to circulate petitions for a November ballot measure and Pat Zugg said she feels more discussion is needed with all the entities involved “to decide whether to go for signatures or what and to address the accountability portion. Maybe we need to wait until next year. I don’t want to put the effort in just to see it lose again.” Board Chairman Roger Jaegel said he thinks the discussion is very useful “and it’s time we did this. We are the lowest in the state — most counties are up around 12 or 13 percent.” “And we’re the most beautiful—there’ssomething wrong with that,” Morris said.

It was a beautiful day last Saturday here in Lew- iston. The smoke had been blown to other parts of the world, so the 18 members of the Lewiston De-Litter Bugs had a great time at their lit-

ter cleanup around Lewis- ton Lake. It was just a really nice morning - picking up lit- ter as we sauntered along the shore and enjoyed the light breeze. Following the pick- up, we all savored some deli- cious hot dogs cooked up by Louise Bigham at Pine Cove Marina. Many of those who showed up stayed for anoth- er hour or so, just socializing, and being thankful that we live in such a beautiful place. All in all, the Bugs picked up trash on about 16 miles of roadway. Thanks go to Kris- ten and Tom Barnes, Billie Jo Bonk, Jenni, Lindi and Josie Brookins, Alsah Bundi, Mel Deardorff, Judith Daye, Rachael Eddis, Lynda Finley, Collin and Chance Godbe, Barbara and Rob Jud, Bob Mordecai, Katie Quinn and Mary Trancho. Others who could not attend, but picked up on Trinity Dam Boule- vard a few days in advance were Dave and Karen Orella- na and Virginia Vanderwall. Louise Bigham had this to

say about Saturday’s Feed the Fish Derby: “We had a great time on Saturday; it was a small turnout but a huge suc- cess. The winner was Alex Rueda, Laurel Edward’s nephew, who entered at the last minute! He caught a beautiful 19 inch 3-1/4 pound trout. Second place went to Larry Sargent with a 20 inch 2-9/16 pound rainbow, and finally Brad Hurt caught a sweet native that measured 17 inches and weighed 1-1/2 pounds. There are still a lot of fish out there and the lake is nice and cool.” Come on down to the Trin- ity River this Saturday, July 19, for some good old-fash- ioned rock ‘n’ roll! Starting at 6:30 p.m., the RetroFits dance band will be playing at 330 River Rock Road, just off Goose Ranch Road. In ad- dition to live music, teams from the Relay for Life will be selling beer, wine, baked potatoes, hot dogs, chicken teriyaki, cookies and more! Entry donation is just $10 and comes with a compli- mentary bottle of water. Parking is available along Goose Ranch Road and Riv- er Rock Road. Call 778-3307 to reserve a table and chairs, or bring your own.

Calling all Bakers! The annual Ice Cream Social, sponsored by the Old Lew- iston Schoolhouse and Mu- seum, at the Lewiston Ele- mentary School gym is just two weeks away on Sunday, Aug. 3. Better start thinking about what you’re going to be cooking up to enter into the Cake and Pie Auction, which also includes cookies, candies, jams, cream puffs, etc. Many of these baked goods go for top dollar. Frankly, the bidding wars for the baked goods are great fun! You really need to plan on being there. Call 778-

3701 for more information.

The Plug ‘n’ Jug is now carrying tickets for any plays that are put on by The Trin- ity Players at the Trinity Alps Performing Arts Cen- ter in Weaverville. This can save you a few bucks by buy- ing your tickets here in Lew-

iston instead of “at the door” in Weaverville. Judy Maben is offering free ballroom dance lessons at the Moose family Center on Monday nights starting at 7:30 p.m. You do not need to be a member of the Moose to come down and join the fun. Beginners to experts are all welcome. Call Judy at 778-

Golden Age Center News

As the smoke may be con- tinuing for some time and you may experience breath- ing problems, if you do not need to go outside, please re- main indoors. We have re- ceived a number of respira- tor-type masks and also the Red Cross has given the cen- ter some filter masks, so if you need one, pick up one when you stop by the center for your wonderful nutrition- al lunch. We have had the one sit- ting for lunch since July 1 and continuing through the present. I am pleased to re- port things appear to be working quite well. We will continue to evaluate the one- sitting concept and keep you apprised. I would like to remind ev- eryone in Trinity County that our sales from the Blue Barns

help supplement the income for the continued operation of the Golden Age Center. We are, however, experiencing an increase in merchandise that cannot be sold because of be- ing ripped, torn, dirty, or in otherwise unsalable condi- tion, which means we must take it to the dump and pay fees to dispose of it. We are a nonprofit organization that must rely upon donations for our operation and cannot af- ford such extra fees. So please take your items to the dump yourselves. We do not have facilities for handling furni- ture, therefore we cannot ac- cept furniture or appliances. Also, please bring your dona- tions when the thrift stores are open, and someone is there to receive them, which is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

W e who served with Les Daye on the 2007-2008 Trinity County Grand Jury were

We who served with Les Daye on the 2007-2008 Trinity County Grand Jury were very saddened to hear of his passing. Les was a very dedicated and knowledgeable Grand Juror. His expertise and guid- ance were greatly appreciated by all members of the Grand Jury. We will always remember Les for his attention to detail and accuracy. We will miss Les as we continue on in life, but will never forget the man that he was. We extend our sympathy to his wife Judith and their entire family. With sincere regards, Members of the 2007-2008 Trinity County Grand Jury.

P.S. Les, as you watch from above, could you please edit this one last letter for us?
