II Debra Moore Staff Writer Quincy storefronts are purple as merchants gear up to welcome the community to the 17th annual Relay for Life to be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the county courthouse. Many merchants will offer specials and longer hours to accommodate the Relay teams and their supporters. Fourteen teams from across the county will walk around the courthouse for 12 hours raising money for the American Cancer Society. The event begins with opening ceremonies and the survivors' lap at 10 a.m., and culminates with the closing and Luminaria ceremonies, which conclude at 10 p.m. Luminarias will be available during the event so that attendees may remember family or friends who have battled cancer. Teams will also be offering cold beverages such as iced coffee and lemonade, holding opportunity drawings and selling other items to raise money for their team contributions. Entertainment will be provided throughout the day with performances by the new circus-themed group Quircus, the Zombie Girls (of All-Star Follies fame), Kristina's Gymnastics, the Retallack family, Rhythm & Grace Dance Studio and the Happy Happy Joy Joy Family Band. Relay for Life co-chairwomen Sheila Vargas and Nancy Clark are enthusiastic about the new format and location for this year's event and hope that it will draw more members of the public to the festivities. They also stress that it's not too late to become a participant, by either forming a team or joining an existing one.

The inten- sity of seismicity remained the same as only two quakes registered in the M 2 range. The largest earthquake measured M 2.8 and occurred at 9:38 p.m. on Wednes- day, June 10, in southern Plumas County near the Fall River at Lamkin Ridge. It triggered at about five miles below the surface. It was felt by a few residents of Oroville, Forbestown and Grass. Valley. One said it hit with a pretty sharp jolt and was followed by several quick ground shudders causing their windows to rattle and hanging plants to swing. It was followed by three aftershocks, the largest of which measured M 2.1 and was also locally felt. The activity occurred within the Sierra geomorphologic provi- dence where the rocks are hard and dense, likely the reason the main shock was felt so sharply. A M 1.3 jolt happened between the Lake Almanor Peninsula and Prattville. the day before the event," Clark said, though earlier is better for logistical purposes.
