Indian Valley Record Wednesday, July 6, 2011 9A More than 1,500 babies were delivered locally by Doc- tor Wilbur Batson before his death in 1986 at age 81. Many of those babies -- now grown up -- have since stopped by the Greenville Cy Hall Memo- rial Museum, where there is a special exhibit in his honor. Some updated the book of their names with marriages, hometowns and other infor- mation. A special afternoon has been planned for Saturday, July 9, in honor of the first Doctor Batson Day 40 years ago, and of the first-year an- niversary of the museum. Special guests will be for- mer nurses Nellie McClure and Cheryle Stockton, as well as members of the Batson family. The museum will be open from 1 to 4 p.m., followed by a special storytelling wine and hors d'oeuvres event 4 - 5:30 p.m. Visitors for the storytelling event are asked to make a voluntary $5 donation. Information about museum membership will be avail- able. Museum honors Dr. Batson ]Community rides July9 ..... ] Do you know who these nurses are? They all worked for Doctor Batson, and people are encour- aged to stop by to learn more about him from two of his former nurses, Nellie McClure and Cheryle Stockton. Doctor Wilbur Batson, right, was perhaps one of the last true country doctors, a man who was always on call, it seems, to deliver babies, visit patients at home and run his own hospital, which was housed next door to Hunter Ace Hardware on Main Street in Greenville.

It's hard to avoid when you live where the wildland and urban areas interface. But having dry grass around a home is like leaving fuel for a fire to consume. Fire burn- ing in grass is extremely dan- gerous and unpredictable and can quickly spread out of control, possibly causing loss of life and property. One of the common denom- inators on fatal and near-fatal fires is fires burning in rela- tively light fuels, such as grass. Keeping a green lawn around a home can provide a fuel break that can slow or even stop a fire's progress. Residents are asked to help in the fight to protect property: --Lawns around homes should be kept short and green. --Other grasses should be no taller than 4 inches. --Cut grass when it is safe to do so. Use a weed trimmer and not a lawn mower to cut dry grass. --Don't cut grass in the heat of the day or when the wind is blowing. CalFire announces all door- yard burn permits within Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties are suspended as of midnight June 30. The burn ban will continue until for- mally cancelled by CalFire. Dooryard burn permits will not be issued and dooryard burning is not allowed during this period of time.

Main St. in Quincy from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, July 7. Greenville Rotary members Julien Howe and Ken Tucker borrow a tricycle to get ready for the first-ever community ride Saturday, July 9. Photo submitted To promote good health in Indian Valley, Greenville Rotary Club members invite all residents, young and old, to join their first-ever com- munity bike ride Saturday, July 9. The ride will be a loop from Taylorsville to Greenville and back, or vice versa. All ages are invited to this ride, but the minimum age to ride without an adult is 12. A parent release form must be signed for all riders who are 17 and younger, and rid- ers of all ages must wear hel- mets. North Valley Road will be the route across the valley and caution signs will be posted as a safety reminder for vehicle drivers that will be sharing the road that day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Riders may begin their ride at either end of the valley, at Taylorsville Elementary School or Greenville'High School, where volunteers will sign riders in and out. For riders not accustomed to longer bike rides, they may turn around at any one of the rest stops, located every three miles along the route. The shortest ride would then be six miles. Other options are 12, 18 or 24 miles. The ride, refreshments at each rest stop and a hot dog picnic will all be available for a nominal donation -- what- ever riders would like to give. Drawing tickets will be giv- en out to riders at every point in the ride, arid winners of small gifts will be notified af- ter the ride. A support-and-gear wagon will be used to patrol the route and help stranded cyclists. For safety's sake, all riders must sign back in when they return to the school they began from.

It was the fourth tally below 10 quakes in the last five weeks and the thirteenth in the last 21 weeks. This is an indication of a very quiet seismic period. The intensity of seismicity remained relaxed as well, as no activity measured M 2.0 or stronger. It was the third gap in a row and the tenth in the last 18 weeks. The last time a streak this long occurred was in November 200"/. Four straight weeks without a M +2 earthquake has not occurred in the last ten years. Last week's five-event series in the Sacramento Valley between Biggs and Butte City waned as no activity was record- ed there this week. The largest quakemeasured M 1.8 and occurred a few miles north of Redding near Shasta Lake. At the other end of the map was a M 16 tremor west of Truckee in the Sierra. The largest of two quakes south of Chester measured M 1.3.
