Students from Westwood High School were immersed in theater the first weekend in June when they traveled to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

The fieldtrip was organized by Cecilia Allin, the high school English and drama teacher. Funds were raised in March at a dinner theater billed as “A Night of Laugh Out Loud Comedy Skits!”

Students and their chaperones left Westwood Friday morning, May 31, and went immediately to a prologue on the play “As You Like It,” upon their arrival in Ashland. A prologue familiarizes an audience with the plot of a play and the main characters.

“As You Like It,” one of Shakespeare’s few comedies, was performed in the Angus Bowmer Theatre, which is the largest of the three theaters in which the group went to plays.

According to Carol Ross, a Westwood High teacher and chaperone, “the acoustics were spot on. Even though we sat up near the top, we could hear everything, which was amazing since the actors do not wear mics. We really enjoyed all 3 1/2 hours of it, but afterward we were pretty hungry.”

However, the schedule was tight so there was only time for a quick bite before a scheduled prologue on Macbeth. This play was at the Allen Elizabethan Theatre, which has no ceiling so people are essentially outdoors. Although the theater has four tiers of seats, Westwood’s group was seated on the ground floor. Ross said everyone was engaged in the play even though it was four hours long.

Saturday a modern play called “Mother Road” was on the agenda. It was written by Octavio Solis and inspired by John Steinbeck’s novel, “The Grapes of Wrath.”

“It’s a journey home, of sorts, of the Joad family, back to their roots. The play was raw and pulled us right in. “Grapes of Wrath” fans would love the resolution to the first story,” said Ross.

That night at 8 p.m. the group saw “Alice in Wonderland” at the Allen Elizabethan Theatre. Most of the students read the book by Lewis Carroll before the Ashland trip, either to refresh their memories or for the first time.

“The actors were colorful and funny. This is quite opposite of the Shakespearean plays where most costumes are mute to match the darkness of the play, but here it was a pageant of riot of colors,” said Ross.

Sunday, June 2, some went to a skate park after breakfast and others went to see “Aladdin” before returning to Westwood.

The students who went to the Shakespeare Festival were Austin Heffley, German Holguin, Tyler Melendrez, Isaiah Halcrow, Dayton Duerksen, Justin Boyd, Amelia Peters, Keyonna Walker, Cleta Tirey, Megan Fletcher, Claudia Herman, Haleigh Meeks and Brianna Ortlieb. Chaperones were Allin, Ross, Pam Pettengill, a member of the board of trustees for the Westwood Unified School District, and Joe Johnstun, a parent.

Some of Susanville’s city streets will see a fresh new sheen come September. Others will see an upgrade to their profiles including ADA access ramps and repair to damaged curb, gutter, driveways and sidewalks for pedestrians.

Funding for these projects will come entirely from the State Transportation Improvement Program and no local match from the city will be required. The projects will cost just under $2 million.

The funds will cover the cost of environmental permitting, design and construction work to rehabilitate and maintain the various streets.

Those streets that will receive a new layer of overlay and rehabilitation will be:

Near Riverside Park on Covina Street, from Monrovia to Santa Paula; Laverne Street, from Sunkist to Upland; Limoneria Avenue, from Monrovia to Sunkist; Monrovia Street, from Covina to Limoneria; Orange Street, from Alexander to Laverne; Santa Paula Street, from Covina to Sunkist; Upland Street, from Covina to Laverne.

Near the casino there will be work on Ashley Way, from Barbara to Shawn; Barbara Street, from Cameron to Skyline; Cameron Way, from Numa to Paiute; Gail Way, from Shawn to Skyline; and Renae Drive, from Paiute to the Southerly Cul-de-sac.

In addition to STIP-funded street upgrades and repairs, the city also approved sidewalk repairs and replacement on Main Street at various locations — funded by once-a-year Caltrans allocations, upon request.

The city’s public works department was notified that the $16,000 in funds were available and needed to be spent prior to the end of the fiscal year.

The project was awarded to Impact Construction and Excavating, out of Susanville. According to the contract, the work will commence within 15 calendar days after the notice to proceed and will complete the project prior to June 28, with no extensions allowed.

Lassen News - Lassen County News by Barbara Macarthur, Lacc Firewise Co.. - 2d ago

The members of Lake Almanor Country Club were given an alarming wake-up call in 2012 when the Chips Fire burned into the Lake Almanor Basin. Fortunately, thanks to healthy forest management practices done by Collins Pines Company and Firewise practices taken by the Lake Almanor West community, the fire-fighting teams were able to contain the wildfire prior to reaching the lake itself and the lakeside communities.

We at Lake Almanor Country Club decided to form our own Firewise Community and took the steps to become a Certified Firewise USA Community in 2014 and every year since. We have had many positive outcomes from the Firewise program which provided us with online resources, literature, guidelines for fire safe practices, as well as inspiring articles and videos about what other successful communities have done. It gave us focus on identifying priorities to make our community safer, the first of which was to develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan, which was completed in early 2016.

On Memorial Day weekend each year we have a Firewise booth at the Peninsula Fire Protection District’s pancake breakfast to educate our members. Our committee created a lot cleanup form for our members to report their participation, from which we have good response every year. We have invited county and CalFire speakers to our annual events to educate our members about creating defensible space. We provide regular monthly Firewise articles in our LACC Community newsletter and website Firewise resources.

In the spring, CalFire crews have twice done roadside fuels thinning and trimming in our community. We have also utilized the Plumas County Chipping Program. Both of which were at no cost to our members. Our committee has been an active participant in the Plumas County Fire Safe Council meetings in Quincy. We have been learning from the many participating groups, which includes possible grant opportunities through the Council to do more defensible space work, one of which is a shaded fuel break between our community and a neighboring large land holder. Our committee has also recommended to our board to create a second internal shaded fuel break utilizing our golf course and HOA commons.

If you are interested in learning more about Fire Safe Council assistance, plan to attend the upcoming Plumas County Fire Safe Council meeting on Thursday, June 13, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Plumas County Planning & Building Services office, 555 Main St., in Quincy.

For questions or comments regarding activities of the Plumas County Fire Safe Council, or for information about the next meeting, contact Hannah Hepner, 927-5281.

The Lake Almanor Country Club has also had great support from the beginning from the Fire Prevention Specialist with the Plumas County Office of Emergency Services to guide us regarding emergency preparedness and defensible space specifics.

Colored tomato cages have ruined my life!

During the three-day weekend, I made some time trying to get my garden in order. That’s always a chore, but this year more so.

Last summer, just about the time things were ready to eat in the garden I discovered there was no garden — our rescue potbelly pig had wiped it out.

And I do mean wiped it out. Not only did he eat every living thing we had planted in the various raised beds, he rooted up the soil and nosed through hardy-board sides.

I didn’t do a thing to repair the damaged beds last fall. I left the dirt where it was and the sides of beds caved in or rather out. That was a mistake for a number of reasons. This year after repairing beds, the soil was so scattered and packed down that I had to buy more bags of soil, compost and manure.

That’s all finished except for moving one bed to the garden location. For some reason Gyp the pig chose to leave it alone.

This year I no longer have the Gyp. He has a new home. But my grandson has a dog. And it turns out that Ted loves to dig and dig and dig. The new fluffy dirt was just right for his big paws.

It started with one bed that was ready for planting. That process continued through three separate carrot, bean and pea plantings in two other beds.

So we got wise. My husband put up a fence. Ted went under the fence. Tom added more stakes and Ted went over the fence. Now he’s added extensions to the top of the metal stakes and wire to make the fence taller. Now we should be fine unless someone leaves the garden gate open for Ted.

With fence additions going on I took the opportunity to put in a fourth planting of carrots, rediscovered the chard plants — five instead of the original six — and so on.

This year it was easy enough to decide what to plant where. Aromatic herbs went in with the cabbage and broccoli, basil went with the tomatoes, but it was the darned tomato cages that slowed me down. Just using three yellow ones in a row is boring. Thank goodness I only have yellow, red and blue to consider.

But I would find myself settled in my antique-look-a-like red metal chair stewing over colors. I love bright colors, especially in the garden. So, staring at three freshly planted pineapple tomatoes my brain went wild. Should I do yellow, red, yellow? Should I use yellow, red, blue? Or should I use blue, red, yellow?

I got to the point I was sweating over it. What was I going to do? I know, I finally decided. Jumping up I did yellow, silver, yellow. I stood back. I don’t like it, but I moved on. I planted beefsteak, black krim and a cherry tomato and sat down again.

I was practically paralyzed. Red, yellow, blue? But what about the miss-marked tomato? A potato leaf was misidentified as a black krim, how did I miss that when I was selecting them?
Yellow, blue, red or blue, red, blue? I had beans to plant behind the tomatoes. I wanted the long, yellow pole beans but ended up with purple pole beans because the yellow beans got spilled and I wasn’t sure that they were all yellow.

But what about the cages? I looked around the garden. Cages were still here and there. “Caden, can you get gramma the blue one?” He did. That went over the black krim, no wait, it went over a beefsteak. “Get gramma another one, please.” I put a red one in place. That left a yellow one to put in. I stood back and looked at the various cages in different raised beds. They’re crooked. Well, this is the third, fourth and fifth years for them and I’ve straightened the wire as much as my impatience will let me …

“It’s so beautiful,” Caden exclaimed as he danced and jumped about with a hand tool in one very dirty little hand. “I helped. I made it gigorgeous!”

I’m used to ginormous, but this was a new word from him.

“Now can we go on a picnic?”

“Just a minute, gramma isn’t finished with things here.”

“I wanna go look at wizards.” He means lizards. “Let’s go. Let’s go.”

But now, I have to stand and agonize over the tomato cage arrangements. I really, really don’t like that lone silver one, but what color should I put there instead? Think. Think. Think. Sit down. Think. “Let’s go. I wanna see the wizards!”

That got me moving. I’m just so glad I didn’t find green, orange and purple cages to add to the muddle of my hectic life! We would have never gone to seek lizards otherwise.

The unofficial “kickoff” to summer has historically been Memorial Day weekend and even though this year’s weather felt more spring than summer, it’s still a good time to remember to enjoy the upcoming months safely.
The American College of Emergency Physicians offers top five tips for you and your family for the summer season.

Tip 1: Food safety
Refrigerate all perishable food within two hours, one hour if the temperature outside is above 90 degrees. To guard against cross-contamination of bacteria, keep uncooked meats away from other foods.
To avoid food poisoning, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends cooking fresh poultry to 165 degrees, hamburgers to 160 degrees and beef to at least 145 degrees.

Tip 2: Grill safety
Emergency physicians see firsthand the dangers associated with an outdoor grill. Consumers should thoroughly clean a grill of any grease or dust. Check the tubes leading into the burner for any blockages from insects or food grease that can cause an uncontrolled fire. Replace any connectors that can lead to a gas leak and keep lighted cigarettes, matches or open flames away from any grill. Do not use a grill in a garage, breezeway, carport or porch or near any surface that can catch fire. Also, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions that come with the grill.

Tip 3: Water safety
To prevent drowning, avoid alcohol when swimming or boating. Wear a life jacket whenever you are on a boat. Make sure young children are supervised at all times when near the beach, on a boat, or by a pool or hot tub. Don’t swim alone or in bad weather. Learn to swim and teach your children to swim. We also recommend that you learn CPR in case of an emergency.

Tip 4: Sun safety
Protect against sunburn and heat stroke. Wear sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or higher and apply it generously throughout the day. Wear a hat outdoors and a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes. Drink plenty of water, especially when in the sun or if you are sweating heavily. If you feel faint or nauseated, get into a cool place immediately.

Tip 5: Travel safety
Do not drink and drive or travel with anyone who has been drinking. Take along a traveler’s first aid kit to help you be prepared for common emergencies.
Wear your seat belt at all times. Make sure your vehicle has been properly serviced and is in good working shape before a long road trip. Familiarize yourself with your surroundings if you are in an unfamiliar place and know where the nearest emergency room is. Also, avoid talking or texting on a cellphone while driving.
For more information on ways to stay safe this summer as well as other health-related topics, visit EmergencyCareForYou.org.

Mother Nature provided a surprising sure-fire cure for rheumatism, according to a story published in the Alturas Plaindealer.
Jack Thomas discovered the remedy by accident but it’s one which probably would not be too popular with those affected by the crippling disease. It seemed he was sitting near the stovepipe in his home when it was struck by lightning.
Thomas was knocked senseless, and his wife was considerably dazed. When he awoke, to his surprise, he was completely cured of his chronic malady. Thomas said his remedy is not patented and anyone could use it free of charge. He added, however, he does not want to take another dose of the cure.

70 years ago
Sunset magazine travel editor Barnaar Bates was in Susanville exploring the Three Flags Highway, a popular route from Reno to Canada, for a feature article.
While in the area, Bates visited Antelope Grade, Inspiration Point and Peter Lassen’s grave taking notes and photographs. His article was set to appear in the October issue of the publication, but flash articles ran in the September, October and November issues. Sunset Magazine had a West Coast circulation of 450,000.

45 years ago
The California Division of Forestry officially opened the new Fredonyer Peak Lookout with a dedication ceremony honoring the late Richard R.K. Smith, the ranger formerly in charge of the district in which the lookout was located. More than 100 people attended the ceremony, including Smith’s widow and family.

30 years ago
Milford residents worked to recover from the damage caused by an usual flash flood that buried roads and private property in silt and rock, clogged washes and cut deep trenches along roadsides.
A cloudburst dumped 2.75 inches of rain in 15 minutes, leaving one property owner’s land buried under three feet of mud and debris.
One homeowner reported seeing a two-foot wall of water rushing toward his house. The flooding crossed Highway 395 in several places, forcing closures of the highway for hours. Damage from the 1987 Clark Fire was largely responsible for the runoff, as the ground cover had not grown back enough the hold the soil in place.

25 years ago
A Northern California senator’s bill to regulate the state’s mountain lion population was shot down by the Senate Natural Resources and Wildlife Committee.
The bill by Senator Tom Leslie would have asked voters to give the Department of Fish and Game the power to change the state’s mountain lion policies.

20 years ago
Lassen Community College wrestler Paul Berry, who faced up to five years in state prison following his conviction for marijuana sales and a possible retrial on a second charge, could have taken a plea bargain and spent only a year behind bars in county jail.
But according to his attorney, Richard Murphy, Berry turned down the deal because Deputy District Attorney Dan Howe asked Berry to plead guilty to a crime he did not commit.
That and other actions had Murphy and Deputy Public Defender Peter Bianchi pondering the fairness of the legal system in Lassen County.

15 years ago
Nearly one month after a train/car accident took the lives of two Westwood teens, investigations began on improving the railroad crossing on County A-1.
The goal of Supervisor Bob Pyle and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad locomotive engineer Scott Palmer was to get crossing arms at the location of the accident.

Last year
Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative broke ground on a 2.5 Megawatt solar project for the Sierra Army Depot on May 24.
The solar project is estimated to take five months to complete and is anticipated to wrap up late this fall. The 2.5 MW installation will help the Sierra Army Depot meet its net-zero requirements.

HOW DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO SEE SUSANVILLE?
The city of Susanville has been searching for an overall “theme” that will give the town a proud representation of the community identity. Visit their survey at surveymonkey.com/r6HS63X2 and fill out their survey to provide your input and help shape the city.

A TIP WORTH SHARING
It’s not always easy to be enthusiastic, especially when it seems like you’re the only one with more work than you think you could possibly handle.
Sometimes life, work, family or activities can drain your energy. However, we can keep our enthusiasm at a high. The following strategies should help keep you motivated:
Be enthusiastic: Many times, we condition ourselves to be negative. We are afraid of being viewed as being overly enthusiastic or unrealistic.
Some believe this will soften the blow of any problems or difficult situations that come along. Yet, by simply being enthusiastic, it eventually becomes real. Others pick up on enthusiasm, become excited themselves, and then give their enthusiasm back. It becomes a beautiful circle of energy.
Don’t criticize, condemn or complain, and don’t put up with people who do. Another person’s negativity affects your own. It becomes a negative, ongoing cycle that is easy to begin, but can be difficult to come out of. Don’t fall for it from the beginning. Consciously decide to generate enthusiasm.
