Kate West Chester Editor Five Chester youth, repre- senting Our Lady of the Snow's Parish, attended the 56th annual Catholic Youth Convention in Palo Cedro, seven miles east of Redding in the foothills of the Lassen CPR class Volcanic National Park March 28. According to spokes- woman Faye Wilkinson, this is the first year the parish has sent its younger members to the Northstate event, The reason for sending the youth to convention this year was to bring together as many youth as possible. Parish representatives joined 600 of their peers in a day filled with social activi- ties and religious teachings in workshop formats. "Heroes was the theme of the event," she said. "It em- phasized that all youth are gifted with many talents through one spirit." The Most Natural Way to Re lace Missing Teeth tomorrow You don't have to be a doctor to learn how to save a life.

The featured performer of the evening, Rob Wade did not disappoint the crowd as he spun stories of his life through words and songs. Confessing this to be his first public music perfor- mance in a couple of years, Wade was still able to weave his spell, leading the guests through many of his life's experiences. Wade delivered songs about grief, celebrating life, one for his dad, and one for the two Tibetan Sherpas who accompanied h'im on his mountaineering jour- ney in the Khumbu region, and who later died on a sub- sequent climb. He also included a new song, "Beautiful at Night," Rob Wade which was dedicated to his wife, Michelle. Having grown up in a large family, tales of his younger siblings are especially tender for Wade; he shared one song he wrote with his sister about traveling on the road together: The open stage portion of the evening included a po- em called "Waves" by Sean Tanner and a' bluesy har- monica solo by Jeff Bryant. April's featured per- former will be Indian Val- ley resident Margaret Elysia Garcia who said she had "a slew of songs and a couple of stories." Garcia's storytelling is rich, heart-warming, hu- morous and always a crowd pleaser. The next Words & Music performance is lined up for April 23 at The Coffee Sta- tion in Chester at 7 p.m. Property Taxes Due The Lassen County Tax Collector, Richard Egan wants to remind you that the 2nd installment of the 2008-2009 secured property tax bill will be delin- quent if not received or postmarked by Attril 10, 2009, after that a 10% penalty and a $10.00 cost will be added.
