2A Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2012 ' Indian Valley Record Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor New Greenville and Tay- lorsville elementary principal Dr. Gary Stebbins brings a wealth of experience in ad- ministration and teaching with him. Not one to be trapped behind a desk all day, Stebbins enjoys spending time outside and in the classrooms with students, teachers and staffmembers. Originally from the Santa Cruz area, Stebbins and his wife, Maureen, retired to the Lake Almanor area after many years of family camp- ing vacations there. He was a teacher and ad- ministrator in the San Jose area for many years, a teacher for the Santa Clara County Office of Education, a middle school principal and a principal for juvenile delinquents. Most recently he was a San Jose State professor of educa- tional administration, where he taught future principals. He also coached new princi- pals through the New Teach- ers Center, a nonprofit orga- nization affiliated with the Association of California School Administrators. After all that, and his wife's 30-year career as a child day care provider, they were ready for the retirement to Plumas County that they had looked forward to for so many years. He was already familiar with Chester schools after meeting with Chester High School principal Scott Corey while still a professor. After settling in, Stebbins approached Plumas Unified School District with a desire to volunteer in some capacity. He met wLth Superinten- dent Glenn Harris and then found himself accepting the position of principal in Indian Valley. He's sure his wife will be joining him soon, volunteer- ing to work with the youngest students at least one day per week. When not working at the schools, the Stebbinses enjoy fishing, boating, kayaking, bi- cycling and spending time with their grandchildren. New Greenville and Taylorsville elementary school principal Dr. Gary Stebbins feels blessed to be welcomed so warmly by the school community and the larger community of Indian Valley. Photo by Alicia Knadler / un Dan McDonald Staff Writer The Plumas County Clerk- Recorder's office should re- turn to business as usual by Friday, Jan. 13. That office's six staffers have been working in the elections office and an adja- cent storeroom in the Plumas County Courthouse since a Christmas Day flood forced the evacuation of.the clerk- recorder's office. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS t~OUNDUP Facilities director Joe Wil- son told the Board of Supervi- sors that the insurance com- pany has agreed to cover the entire $12,300 to clean and re- pair the office. Furniture from the office has been stacked in the court- house lobby since a 36-year- old heater began leaking sometime Christmas Day and flooded the entire office. A county employee discov- ered the flood when she stopped by the office about 5:30 p.m. on Christmas to drop off a dollhouse she was donat- ing to the Portola family whose home was destroyed by fire Dec. 22. Wilson said the office visit by the employee, Marcy ~v/USIC ~" Don't get Our signal from where you want to listen? Do you have an Internet connection?

The 10 a.m. meeting will be an opportunity for the public to provide input on the Coun- ty General Plan Update Envi- ronmental Impact Report (EIR). Individuals, agencies and organizations can provide the county with input on content and analysis, including pro- ject alternatives, to be con- ducted for the General Plan Update EIR. Meacher new chairman It took just 30 seconds for the supervisors to elect a new chairman and vice chairman. Supervisor Terry Swofford nominated Robert Meacher to be the board chairman for 2012. Supervisor Sherrie Thrall quickly seconded the motion, and the board unani- mously approved. Meacher then nominated Swofford as vice chairman. Thrall added the second, and the vote was again unanimous. "Well, that was easy," out- going Chairwoman Lori Simpson said before she and Meache~ traded seats at the board table. "It's been a challenging year, and I've enjoyed it," Simpson said. "But I'm ready to take a rest." "I think you did an excel- lent job, Lori," Meacher said, as the audience applauded Simpson's efforts over the last year. Before Meacher took his seat at the head of the table, Thrall presented the new chairman with a gift that drew laughter from everyone in the room. "I have noticed that (old) gavel someti}nes doesn't get it," Thrall said, as she un- veiled a new gavel about three times the size of the cur- rent one. "So I figure you need a 'whop-it.'" "When you can't fix it, you whop it." She smiled, slam- ming the giant gavel on the table. "So Bob ... this is for yOU."
