|These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:|
According to his mother, Lorre Wallace of Quincy, United States Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Brenton Beever, a 2004 graduate of Loyalton High School, shares a unique experience with his late grandfather, Graeagle resident Francis Beever — he survived a near miss. Twice.
Beever recently returned stateside to Camp Pendleton after a seven-month deployment to the Sangin Valley of Helmand Province in southern Afghanistan.
The Dr. Wilbur Batson story will be told this year at the Greenville Cy Hall Memorial Museum, where an album with a list of more than 1,000 local babies he delivered will be on display, as well as photos of many of the nurses who worked with him.
The museum will open Saturday, May 28, 1 – 4 p.m. For the rest of the summer season, the hours will be Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1 – 4 p.m. More days and hours will be added if additional docents become available.
Editor’s note: This is the final article in a series about the California Department of Fish and Game proposal to eliminate state game refuges. Previous stories in this series ran on 5/4/2011 and 5/18/11.
Many people of California just do not understand what a game refuge is or was meant to be; that is the finding of the California Department of Fish and Game officials.
In their report to the Legislature about the possibility of eliminating the refuge status, they share many of those misconceptions, as well as provide a comprehensive feel for what citizens are thinking about the whole idea.
Bronwyn Olsen and her mother, Diana Jorgenson, share more than a close, trusting relationship. They have been making art together for their entire lives, as did Diana and her own mother. “My mother was my teacher,” Jorgenson said. “I spent most of my childhood drawing.”
The mother-daughter team of Olsen and Jorgenson will show their photography and crystal window hangings Sunday, May 29, at the Mohawk Valley Artists Guild’s annual Spring Arts and Craft Fair. The juried show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Graeagle Fire Hall, on Highway 89.
The 14th annual Lake Almanor Memorial Weekend Craft Fair will take place this Saturday and Sunday, May 28 – 29, in the Chester Park. The Chester Park is located one block off Main Street along the banks of the North Fork of the Feather River.
This will be the second year the Rotary Club of Chester has sponsored this popular crafters’ event.
