Quincy' "" CARDS of THANKS A big, big thank you to Potter's Auto & Boat Care. What a fabulous surprise when I saw my car after you detailed it. Every inch was shiny and smelled like new. I was a very happy girl on my birthday because of your outstanding service. Linda Rouland I would like to thank everyone who helped make the passing of my mom, Tish Whipple, a little easier. First, I want to thank Sharon Carter for flying from Hawaii with me and standing by my side the entire way. Next, Marcy (Donnelly) Hildebrand. She waited with mom in Saint Mary's Hospital while I flew into Reno. She was by her side counting down the time until I would arrive. Her son Jerone Hildebrand also sat with mom talking to her about anything and everything. Jean Moser, my mom's caregiver, was the best. She took such good care of mom and was always just a phone call away. Donna McElroy, as usual, came to my rescue and along with Leland and Kathy Cotter, Dana and Kerry Eliason and Cory McElroy, we were able to get mom's personal belongs gathered up and distributed according to her wishes. Without all of these truly wonderful friends, this time would have been impossible. I would also like to thank Ted and Mary Trafton for allowing me to stay with them and help me get through the nights. Good friends are a wonderful blessing; my mom and I have truly good friends. I want to thank Rick also. He was unable to come with me, but he was only a phone call away and his advice helped me a great deal. Dane's calls just to check on me were always welcome! We will all miss her. Gayle duPont MARRIAGE LICENSES June 31 James William Estes and Jackalyn Gait Shannon, both uL ~cxt ou** xJ1~.~,, J.~~; v.

CHP to enforce 'lights on signs' Following is a statement issued July2 by the California Highway Patrol We have all experienced it: that moment when our eyes must adjust to the darkness as we enter the tunnels here in our own Feather River Canyon. Hence, as locals, we have come to recognize the need to heed the signs' suggestion to "turn lights on." Due to the beauty of our area, it is an attraction to many tourists from all over the nation. Those tourists drive motorhomes, ride motorcycles and bicycles, and bring foot traffic through these tunnels that are near attractive swimming holes. Our goal, as always, is to encourage the safest possible conditions for this traffic. Within the last year there has been a fatality, along with other collisions and "near misses." They all involved headlights not being on. We all understand what a simple solution this is. Just in time for these busy summer months of tourism, new regulatory signs have been posted on both sides of each of our three Canyon tunnels -- Elephant Butte, Grizzly Dome and Arch Rock requiring motorists to "turn on lights" while traveling through the tunnels. The California Highway Patrol reminds motorists that failure to obey any black-and-white traffic sign can result in a citation. The CHP will allow for a grace period until August. Effective Aug. 1, CHP will enforce the signs' warnings. It is our desire to alert locals of these new regulatory signs, that they might spread the word to those visiting the area, and that this summer might be a safer one. .ReSi'cie~ttS-ca nget car seats checked Car seat checks will be held in Plumas County the week of July 15.
