4 / 2A Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010 Indian Valley Record FRC board hears budget updates at meeting Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Isatchwell@plu With two Feather River College board members jok- ingly watching the clock so they wouldn't miss the begin- ning of the Giants game, the October meeting moved along at a quick clip. Highlights included the In- formation Services Depart- ment, headed by manager Rand Groh, shedding some light on what they do for the college. They made a serious and mostly successful effort to explain themselves in lan- guage that those in atten- dance could comprehend. Groh, whose retirement is imminent, gave kudos to his hard working staff. Several agenda items fo- cused on money management in the wake of both the Cali- fornia state budget crisis and the transfer of control of the student residence halls and Feather River Fitness and Recreation from the Founda- tion to the College. Loan Modification: College president, Ron Tay- lor, brought a two-part re- quest to the board to approve the restructuring and possi- ble "forgiveness" of the loan that the college made to the FRC Foundation in order to repair residence halls roofs and infrastructure. Taylor asked the board to consider extending the term of the loan and/or to "for- give" repayment. Board members seemed to favor extending rather than forgiving the loan and asked that Taylor bring the matter back to them after further discussion and planning at a later date. The restructuring request was based on the fact that, of 'Sunshines' on San Luis Obispo woman Diane Morrow Special to Feather Publishing Jill Sabol of San Luis Obis- po. Sabol, who is the sister of quilt guild member Diane Morrow, is a longtime quil- ter. Diane delivered the quilt to sister Jill when they met Oct. 16 at the Pacific In- ternational Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, Calif. Suzy Miner was the leader of the group of ladies The Chester Piecemakers Quilt Guild drew the win- ning ticket for its 2010 Op- portunity Quilt, "Mountain Sunshine," during the Oct. 11 monthly meeting. Outgoing president Bar- bara Ortiz drew the win- ning ticket purchased by who sewed and hand quilted the 2010 Opportunity Quilt. The Piecemakers make a quilt each year to give away in order to raiSe funds for speakers and workshops. The quilt guild also donates "Heart Warmer" quilts to the preschools, Seneca Hos- pital Long Term Facility and the Plumas County Sheriff's Office at Christ- mas time. The 2011 Opportunity Quilt is already underway and will have a woodsy theme appropriate to this area. Sue Rapose, Rita Isbell and Jean Martin will co- chair the 2011 endeavor. The Chester Piecemakers Quilt Guild meets at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, except Decem- ber, at the Chester Memori- al Hall. All community members and Lake Almanor guests are welcome to attend. Jill Sabol, of San Luis Obis- po, won the Chester Piece- makers 2010 Opportunity Quilt, "Mountain Sunshine."

An ad- ditional $50,000 was needed by the Foundation for "cash flow" reasons. Taylor requested that the board authorize him to exe- cute documents allowing for the other $80,000 to be used for "additional capital im- provements." Specifically, there are five student rooms that are cur- rently unoccupied, which re- quire major internal renova- tions. Taylor said that, in the long run, the college would get this money back when these rooms could be occu- pied. Some are two-student, and others are four-student rooms. The board passed the loan restructuring request unani- mously. Tabled request for county $: In his presentation of the quarterly budget, Chief Fi- nancial Officer Jim Scoubes touched on the last minute save afforded the college when the state finally passed its budget. Taylor expanded on the topic in his remarks. He had gone to the board of supervi- sors to thank them for consid- ering the college's request for a loan--or early transfer of anticipated tax revenue--and let them know that the col- lege wouldn't be needing help at this time. However, Taylor explained at the FRC board meeting, though they were getting cer- tain deferred payments now, there were additional pay- ments that were going to be deferred until spring. And, Taylor said, the budget is still in such a state of flux, there is no certainty that the state will make good on those de- ferred payments later in the year. For that reason, there was the chanc~ that the college would have to approach the county again for an advance of funds. He said he'd "hint- ed" as much to the supervi- sors at their last meeting. Fitness of the Fitness Center Athletic Director, Merle Truehlood, reported that the Fitness Center has increased its membership by almost 60 percent since the college took over cleaning, renovating, and management. Total ac- tive membership currently stands at 520. The pool, newly spic and span has been opened but is now closedfor the season and the Jacuzzi will be soon, he said. The emphasis on cleanliness, friendliness, and organization is paying off. Trueblood said he looks for- ward to another jump in membership once the winter weather hits.

Courthouse advisors named The Superior Court of Plumas County and the Ad- ministrative Office of the Courts (AOC) have named a project advisory group for the proposed new Quincy court- house. The project would replace the court's space in the cur- rent Quincy courthouse, which is significantly over- crowded, functionally defi- cient and lacks security fea- tures meeting current stan- dards. The advisory group in- cludes community officials and local business leaders as well as officials of the Superi- or Court and the AOC. The AOC is the staff agency of the Judicial Council, the policy- making body of the California courts. Among its responsi- bilities, it manages all court- houses statewide. The AOC is managing all aspects of the proposed new Quincy court- house project, working with officials from the court. The project advisory group will provide advice and input to the project, primarily dur- ing site selection and design. The project is currently in the earliest phase of site se- lection. The site selection and acquisition process, which follows a statewide standard set by the Judicial Council, typically takes one to two years. The AOC has already per- formed a market search to identify potential sites. The project advisory group is es- tablishing criteria for site se- lection. The panel will vali- date a ranking of a short list of potential sites based on the criteria of greatest impor- tance in Quincy and ultimate- "Providing personalized care since 1990" OPEN HOUSE ~ Greenville Clinic Wed., Nov. 10 4-7:30pm Come by and say Hi!
