Taking a cue from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Quincy residents Jeb Heiman and Lindsey Kimzey adopted someone from out of the country. This isn’t your typical adoption, however. The couple adopted a dog named Intore from Rwanda.

Kimzey saw a photo of Intore posted on the Facebook page of a foster home for dogs in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali. Kimzey instantly fell in love with the pup and made the arrangements for the adoption.

Last Saturday, Kimzey and Heiman picked Intore up after her long flight to Los Angeles International Airport and brought her back to her new home in Quincy.

Some of the visiting Masons had been in Sacramento to oversee the laying of the cornerstone for the new Kings arena, and then continued the journey north.

The dignitaries, local Masons and their wives enjoyed a dinner served by the Rainbow Girls before proceeding upstairs for the ceremony.

Just after everyone’s attention focused on an earthquake swarm in Northwestern Nevada, a new earthquake swarm hit closer to home just beyond the boundary of Lassen Volcanic National Park.

According to a Wednesday, Nov. 12, email from Dr. Margaret T. Mangan, the scientist in charge of the California Volcano Observatory, the agency is “tracking an earthquake swarm located at the Tehama County-Plumas County border within Lassen National Forest. The swarm is about 24 kilometers west-northwest of the town of Chester and about 1 mile south of the Lassen Volcanic National Park boundary near the Twin Meadows Trail at Patricia Lake.”
