u.el weonesclay, July b, ZU11 Indian Valley Record Large, colorful bumblebees and dragonflies buzzed the stall of Joybird Creations during the weekly farmers market. The mar- ket starts at 5 p.m., when the bell rings, and runs until dark- thirty. In addition to the farmers and vendors, there is plenty of food and music. Throughout the summer Thursday night is farmers market night on the school district lawn in Quincy. On June 30, LaVioletta Farms, of Gridley, featured plenty of fresh peaches, pluots and nectarines, as well as summer squash, while Yang Produce had plenty of onions, radishes and greens.

Fire safe council to meet in Quincy July 14 The Plumas County Fire Safe Council (PCFSC) will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting Thursday, July 14, at the Plumas Coun- ty Planning and Building Services office, 555 Main St. in Quincy, from 9 to 11 a.m. At the July meeting, the council will discuss progress toward current wildfire mit- igation projects and contin- ue to review efforts of the Community Wildfire Protec- tion Plan. Current wildfire mitigation projects include the Elderly and Disabled De- fensible Space Assistance program and hazardous fuel reduction projects in the communities of Indian Val- ley, Long Valley, Whitehawk and C Road. Council members want to remind residents that a key part of fire season is beginning in Plumas Coun- ty: lightning season. Re- member 2008? It is not uncommon for Plumas County to experience five to 25 fires in one day, and there have been days in which more than 50 fires have started. On many occa- sions, suppression resources have been insufficient to attack all the fires and consequently a number of them have gotten very large, burning a significant num- ber of acres. Therefore, PCFSC re- minds residents that now is a good time to: --Review defensible space. --Make sure roads, drive- ways and houses are well signed with reflective letters and numbers. -:Learn evacuation routes. --Create a family plan on how and where to evacuate and meet up. PCFSC invites residents with an interest in prevent- ing and mitigating impacts from wildland fires to their homes or communities to become members. The I coun- cil is a coalition of citizens, businesses, fire departments and representatives of local, state and federal government agencies. The mission of the council is "to reduce the loss of natural and manmade re- sources caused by wildfire through Firewise Communi- ty programs and pre-fire ac- tivities."
