Indian Valley Record FRC women get fieldhouse Feather River College under- took a massive endeavor July 7, when the former Chester Cen- ter building was moved from Chester to theQuincy campus and installed as the new field house for the softball team. According to Nick Boyd, di- rector of facilities, the move was almost a full year in the making, "It was Cameron Ab- bot, our former director of hu- man resources, who first saw the potential for this building. He proposed that we hold FRC classes in Chester at the high school and bring the building to Quincy to better utilize the space and resolve a Title 9 issue. This action was approved by the FRC board of trustees last October and we have been working on it ever since." The move was a huge un- dertaking, requiring three se- mi trucks and trailers, one for each section of the building. Because of the size and height of the buildings they couldn't be moved down Highway 89, so they were taken from Chester through Susanville to 395 South and then back to Quincy on Highway 70. Once they arrived at FRC the sections were unloaded and assembled on the pad that was built and prepared by the facilities crew. Hopefully, the new field house will be completely ready for the softball team by this fall. To prepare for the move the FRC facilities team had to work closely with the Chester Community Services District, PG&E and the Plumas Uni- fied School District. One of the biggest issues the team faced was that the main power supply for a PUSD site was routed through the Chester Center, so the problem had to be re- solved before final moving plans could be made. The facilities crew began the process of getting the cen- ter ready to move in March, and finalized the preparation in late June. This action resolves one of FRC's Title 9 discrepancies by providing a facility for the women equal to the men's field house. Once completed it will house a locker room, coaches' offices, a laundry fa- cility and a spot for the ath- letic trainers to work. Cox staff in Chester July 17 Staff from state Sen. Dave Cox office will be in Chester on Friday, July 17, 10 a.m. to noon and 1-3 p.m. at the Chester Chamber of Com- merce, 529 Main St. Residents are encouraged to attend this personal visit. Sen. Cox, who represents the North- state in the state Legislature, will have a staff member available to assist residents with state-relat- ed matters like unemployment, car registration or MediCal. "Given the geographic dis- tance, dealing with state de- partments and agencies can be challenging," said Cox. "These mobile office hours are intend: ed to help make the process easier for constituents. It is my hope that members of the public take advantage of this opportunity." With Cox's efforts to aid his constituents through regularly scheduled office hours, the senator and his staff have assisted residents in resolv- ing various issues with state departments and agencies. Constituents who are inter- ested in meeting with Cox's staff are encouraged to schedule an appointment to ensure the greatest level of convenience. All others who come during of- fice hours will be seen on a fast- come fast-served basis. For more information, contact Sen. Cox's local office at 283-3437. More training for firefighters The second of two sched- uled "Live Fire" trainings were conducted June 13-14 at the Graeagle Fire Station in Graeagle. North Tree Inter- national conducted the train- ing in its custom-built Mobile Live Fire Training trailer. Firefighters from Graeagle, C-Road, Plumas Eureka, East- ern Plumas, Sierra Valley, In- dian Valley, Quincy and Long Valley fire departments participated over the period of two days of training. By simulating fires caused by hazardous materials, stoves igniting a kitchen fire and an upstairs bedroom in flames, firefighter trainees were sub- jected to putting out actual fires (fueled by propane) in in- terior spaces while wearing protective clothing and air breathing tanks. The training provided in- valuable actual experience; when the real thing comes along, the firefighters will have experienced the heat, small tight spaces and flames rolling over their heads that they are likely to encounter in a burning structure. A Department of Homeland Security, FEMA and Assis- tance to Firefighters Regional Grant made the training pos- sible. Every fire department in Plumas County, as well as Sierra County, was invited to participate in the training. , Forty-six people participat- ed in the training weekend as trainees, medical support, trainers, safety officers and other support staff.

NEWSMAKER As members of the Benevo- lent and Protective Order of Elks from across the nation gathered in Portland, Ore., from July 5-9, for the Order's 145th Grand Lodge Conven- tion, Ron Barker of Quincy Elks Lodge No. 1884 was in- stalled as the new leader of the northeast district of the California-Hawaii Elks Asso- ciation. In addition to helping set the course of Elks-USA in the coming year, Barker also learned of the order's many national accomplishments. Last year the nearly 1 mil- lion members of the Elks made charitable contribu- tions totaling more than $200 million (cash and in-kind), which went to support schol- arships and educational .grants, drug awareness and education programs, third- grade dictionaries, aid to the nation's veterans, youth ath- letics and the Elks state as- sociations' major projects, which provide funding for everything from cancer treatment and research to shelters for the victims of domestic violence. As the Elks national rep- resentative for the area, .Barker will now be respon- sible for working with local Elks lodges to fulfill the or- der's longstanding commit- ment to promote charity and patriotism in their communities. In the position of District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler, Barker will play a vital role in the workings of Elks-USA, with duties to include advising lodges on important internal and business matters, reviewing how national policy is implemented by the lodges in the district and assisting in the coordination and supervision of Elks' activities on many levels. Ron Barker's appointment to this key position in the Order signals the high confi- dence the national officers of the Elks place in his abilities. 720A Ash St. Susanville Orthodontic Care Building Beautiful Smiles Building Beautiful Smiles 257-4455 Early treatment can make later treatment, if necessary, easier and take less time.
