Indian Valley Record Fair theme announced Anyone who has taken the time to pay attention to themes of the Plumas-Sierra County Fair, would see that they have been all over the map. Some have reflected the point in time of the Fair; like “150th Anniversary” in’ 2009, or “Come Alive in ’75” for 1975. Others were calls to action. The first modern Fair in 1940 was based on the theme “It’s Your Fair, So Be There.” After that, it would appear organizers didn’t feel the need for a theme until 1952. At that time, there was a close connection between the Fair and the Plumas Chamber of Commerce, the former led by the legendary Tulsa St. Elmo Scott and the latter by Chet Peckinpah, both members of the Western Fairs Association Hall of Fame. The year 1952 featured the first of several themes that promoted the economy and attractions of the County; “Lumbering Progress.” Although the use of themes was still sporadic, later years had similar motives; “Outdoor Glory,” “Natural Resources Plumas County’s Wealth” and “Progress’n Plumas Style.” History had its turn on many occasions. The year 1976 featured “Plumas Pride In Our Past, Faith In Our Future,” followed in 1977 with “The Old West At Its Best.” The 1983 Democrats 'to meet The Plumas County Democratic Central Committee will conduct a regular business meeting, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Feather Publishing Conference Room, 287 Lawrence St. in Quincy. All are welcome to attend. Please contact plumascountydemo for any questions or for more information. theme made a nod to . agriculture and history with “Harvest of History.” And of course, the old faithful rhyming and word play themes seemed to be popular since the ’80s “A Family A-Fair” in 1985, and “Bales, Tails Happy Trails” in 2010. The past few years though, the Plumas Sierra County Fair Board has made choices that have given the Fair an opportunity to address issues that can educate and inspire our community. V The 2017 theme of “Art to Ag” was awarded First Place among fairs with attendance of 100,000 or less on the West Coast, as well as being nominated as one of the top five outstanding programs of fairs of allsizes. . The 2020 fair theme is “Young At Heart.” The road leading to that theme began With the idea of how the Fair could showcase the talent and deep resources of our youth in Plumas and Sierra counties. The Fair board wanted to celebrate the knowledge and accomplishments of the young people in our community. Then it was asked, “What do we consider young?” Just because someone doesn’t know how to operate a cell phone beyond answering a phone call, doesn’t mean they don’t FEEL young. So, after discussing and considering these deep rhetorical thoughts, the Fair board found the obvious phrase we all know: “Young At Heart.” ' Everyone knows people that, despite their age, are truly young at heart. These are the people, along with the youth of our two counties, which the 2020 Plumas-Sierra County Fair is built around. Plans to do just that are in the works, but the Fair invites anyone who has an idea, or maybe knows someone that exemplifies the theme, to contact the fair office and share their thoughts. Look for activities that will help us all discover how young at heart we really are. Getting back to the youngsters, the Fair is planning a Kiddie Land featuring bounce attractions, activities and games. This concept is centered around the idea of creating a fun, safe place where our younger visitors can hang out throughout the Fair. The 2020 Exhibit Guide is scheduled for release around the first week of February. ‘fThe exhibit guide is the portal to a successful fair,” declared Fair Manager John Steffanic. “Last year saw a significant increase in entries and contributed to one of our best Fairs ever.” Steffanic emphasized that the more entries, the stronger the fair. The 2020 Plumas-Sierra County Fair takes place Aug. 12-16. It always begins on the second Wednesday in August. from page 4A held by Frank, Revene, Rasmussen and Susan Terry, who got the last one to win the 24-Hand Pot.

PUBLIC NOTICES: YOUR RIGHT To KNOW Statewide public notices from participating California newspapers can be viewed at www.capublicnoticecom or plumasnelwscom Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Thompson Meadow Restoration and Water Budget Evaluation Project The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and United States Forest Service (USFS) have released a draft Environmental Assessment/Initial Study (EA/IS), and DWR intends to adopt a pro- posed Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND), for the Thompson Meadow Restoration and Water Budget Evaluation Project (proposed project). The draft EMS and proposed MND have been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the California Environmental Quality Act to provide agen- cies, the public, and interested parties an opportunity to review the environmental analysis of the proposed project. The proposed project is located on National Forest System lands within the Beckwourth Ranger District of the Plumas National Forest, approximately 11 air miles north of Portola, CA, in Plumas County. The purpose of the proposed project is to restore chan- nel/floodplain function to 0.68 miles of degraded stream channel along Thompson Creek and 47 acres of degraded meadow in Thompson Meadow to reestablish the his- torical meadow water table elevation, stabi- lize eroding stream banks, improve water quality, attenuate flood flows, and restore meadow vegetation. A secondary purpose of the proposed project is to improve the quality and quantity of woody and non- woody riparian vegetation along stream reaches and to improve wildlife habitat and livestock forage. A full water budget evalua- tion will be conducted comparing pre- and post-project implementation conditions. A complete description of the proposed pro- ject is included in the draft EA/IS. The 15le provides an assessment of the proposed project’s potential significant adverse impacts on the environment. The EA/IS concludes the proposed project would not (have any significant adverse effects on the environment after implemen- tation of mitigation measures. The EMS is being circulated for public review and comment for a period of 30 days starting January 8, 2020. written comments should be submitted and received no later than close of business on February 7, 2020.

Submitting pro- ject specific written comments at this time allows us the opportunity to consider your comments before completing the Environmental Assessment and draft Decision Notice and Finding of No Significant Impact which are expected in March 2020. This EA discloses the comparative analysis of the options being considered to restore the natural hydrologic function of 47 acres of degraded meadow along a 0.68 mile reach of Thompson Creek using a variety of restoration techniques including complete fill of the incised channel, in-channel raised riffle rock structures, and partial fill of the incised channel (commonly known as ‘pond and plug’). The primary purpose of the proposed pro- ject is to restore channel/floodplain function of degraded meadow in order to reestablish the historical meadow water table elevation, stabilize eroding. stream banks, improve water quality, attenuate flood flows, and restore meadow vegetation. A second objective of the proposed project is to improve the quality and quantity of woody and non-woody riparian vegetation along stream reaches to improve wildlife habitat and livestock forage, as well as to conduct a full water budget evaluation before and after ‘ project implementation. Thompson Creek is a tributary to McReynolds Creek, which flows to Red Clover Creek in northeastern Plumas County.
