PAGE 2 • THE INTERMOUNTAIN NEWS • OCTOBER 28, 2009 By BILL CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org Biker Bill HOSPITAL RECEIVES NEW EQUIPMENT “Awesome,” exclaimed Sherry Wilson, referring to equipment donated by Shasta Regional Medical Center (SRMC). Wilson is Mayers Memorial Hospital District’s (MMHD) chief nursing officer for long-term care. The nursing homes received floater beds and bedside tables, miscellaneous lobby furniture and soon to arrive, four medication carts. The 10 beds and tables were split between the Burney and Fall River Mills campuses. The beds are used by long-term care residents who are especially susceptible to pressure sores. The floater bed mattress is filled with air, which better cushions the resident. SRMC responded to Wilson’s call to donate equipment to upgrade the long-term care facilities equipment. The Redding hospital’s response is an example of the “strong working relationship that exists between Mayers Memorial and other hospitals in the Redding community,” stated Jeanine Masciola, grant writer for Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation. “As with many critical access hospitals, MMHD is more than simply the local hospital – it is a lifeline to critical care for elderly residents or those with chronic medical conditions,” she said. “It takes multiple partnerships throughout the region to help the District meet its goal of providing whole life health services in a professional, personal and progressive manner.” CHANGES IN STATE BURNING RULES Burning permits on State Responsibility Area Lands are not required between 8:00 a.m., beginning Monday, Nov. 2 through May 1, 2010. However, burning is restricted to permissive burn days. State responsibility lands exclude property under federal and local jurisdiction. The latter varies between communities and depends on various factors, including zoning. The common thread is most local fire districts follow California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) time frames. If you have questions, call your local fire district. Acceptable burnable fuel includes residential brush, tree trimmings, pine needles, leaves or vegetation, in Cal Fire areas. Air quality determines permissive burn days. The daily report, updated by 9:15 a.m., can be obtained by calling 800-411-8728. Often, a permissible burning location is determined by elevation. For information on winter safety tips, visit the state agency website at www.cdflmu.org or www.fire.ca.gov F.R. COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT The 2008-2009 financial audit should be available soon, reports Barbara Briggs, board secretary. Briggs states the current financial picture is positive because the board has closely monitored expenses, pursued collections and saved money with the vacant manager’s position. Additional savings are expected when the organization changes health insurance carriers in January 2010. The organization expects to receive district assessed tax revenue for this fiscal year. As previously reported in this column, the district received $14,000 non-operating revenue for reimbursement of water used to fight last August’s local fires. The tax revenue, expected to be near $40,000, combined with the reimbursement and previously banked funds brings the total reserve account to nearly $65,000. Board members Bill Estes and Rich Hall are resigning. Estes plans to resign once a new manager is employed. Hall plans to stay until a replacement is identified. When appointed, both members “were very clear that they wanted to only be interim board members, were pitching in to help stabilize the District, and would consider being replaced once we had things under control,” Briggs stated. LEARN A NEW SKILL Blacksmithing, an old trade, may become your newest skill. Beginners are welcome to participate in the wintertime Fort Crook Museum classes. Burney resident Chuck McCulley and Fall River Mills resident Ron Shannon combine their talents to demonstrate and teach the art of crafting metal using the forge, anvil and a wide variety of blacksmithing tools. Students learn to make steak turners (for right and left-handed people), three-tine forks and dinner bells. Board member McCulley teaches students the art of making a copper rose. Workshops begin Sunday, Nov. 1, continuing on the first and third Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. through March 31. Classes are taught in the blacksmith shop located behind the equipment barn on the museum’s campus. Contact McCulley, 335-4092, or Shannon, 336- 5046, for additional information. A $5 per class donation by each student is suggested. Public donations of flat iron to forge the artworks and cash to purchase coal for the forges are encouraged. HAWES FARM IN PALO CEDRO You’re never too old to be a kid, again, at least for a few hours in celebration of the season. I maneuvered my six-foot frame into the cow shaped, painted barrel. The bell on the narrow gauge train engine rang as my wife and I boarded. We meandered through the 10-acre corn maze solving periodic “corny” riddles. The best fun was shooting pumpkins from a cannon. Sometimes a wayward pumpkin missed the metal target and scarred a cow in the distant pasture. The fun ends Sunday, Nov. 1. Check www.hawesfarms.com for hours. Oh, yes, the day was topped with a palate-pleasing cherry shredded ice. Please, don’t tell my dentist.

Bosenko was elected as Sheriff in 2006. He was appointed early to the position in August 2006 to finish the term of Sheriff Jim Pope who retired in 2005. Bosenko points to his accomplishments: • Increased enforcement against illegal drugs and illegal marijuana production to get drugs off our streets and out of our communities. This has resulted in record numbers of arrests, seizures, and national recognition and awards. • Increased enforcement against sex offenders. This has resulted in arrests and gained improved compliance with the registration of sex offenders. A grant for the northern California counties was obtained to address sex offenders in our region, just not Shasta County. • A system to notify citizens if a registered sex offender lives near them. • A system to notify victims of crimes if the criminal is released from jail. • Continued efforts against gangs in Shasta County and the north state counties. • Improved and updated radio and computer communication equipment. • New equipment, including items to respond to emergencies and disasters, mobile command and communications center, bomb robot, improved boats for response on the lakes and river, improved dive equipment for the safety of divers and the recovery of evidence and drowning victims. Bosenko plans to hold fund raising events in the future. Persons or groups wishing to host an event may contact him or his committee at votebosenko@yahoo. com .

The project was supported by the Shasta Resource Advisory Committee, and funded through the Lassen National Forest. The Burney and Hat Creek watersheds total 364,250 acres and include the communities of Burney, Johnson Park, Hat Creek, Cassel, and Old Station. Fifty-eight percent of the land in the project area is in the Lassen National Forest. Another 29 percent is owned by large private for- The Veterans of Foreign Wars Burney Post 5689 and the Ladies Auxiliary will sponsor three scholarship contests: • A Patriotic Essay Writing Contest for students in grades 6 thru 8; The theme– “When Is The Right Time To Honor Our Military Heroes? • A Patriotic Audio Essay Competition, “The Voice of Democracy”, for students in grades 9 thru 12: The theme- ”Does America Still Have Heroes”? • A National Citizenship Education Teacher Award contest for teachers of grades K thru 12, recognizing teachers who care about America.: The theme - “It’s About Service”… Describing the “teacher’s innovative estland owners and four percent by large ranches.

The RCD is working with the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment out of Plumas County (Taylorsville) on a needs assessment for this project. At the Sept. 23 RCD board of directors meeting, Jonathan Kusel and Ann Moote from the Sierra Institute presented plans for engaging the community in identifying key environmental and socioeconomic issues of concern in the project area. This will include interviews and meetings with community members to clarify local goals for the watersheds and the communities. Community meetings are planned for early November. The board is enthusiastic about this project because it offers opportunities for improving forest health and recreational opportunities in the watersheds and for supporting local businesses.
