Fireman’s Carnival fun for children and parents

For more than forty years the fireman’s carnival has been raising money for the McArthur Fire Department.

Lots of fun for all

This year, Saturday evening March 2, hundreds of children and parents came to the Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds to win prizes in a dozen different events.

Hoping to win a loveable bear

Made it

A fun drive

A team effort

Ready for a dunk

Won a goldfish

The do-do duck tried to escape

Meanwhile in Ingram Hall over a hundred people enjoyed playing Bingo for prizes.

Bingo is fun too

This year Inter-Mountain royalty was there to assist the Carnival.

Princesses Sara Dean and Hallee Olsen

Burney-Fall River Interact Students travel to Mexico to serve

News from Bob Jehn of Burney-Fall River Rotary Club:

During President’s Day Weekend, five Interact students from Burney and Fall River High Schools traveled with five adult advisors to Agua Prieta, Mexico to perform community service alongside members of the Rotary Club and Rotaract Club of Agua Preita.


Interact students Alexus Bellino and Kaitlin Estes talk with a resident of the nursing home in Agua Prieta, Mexico.

Heather Cook and other Interact students paint an amphitheater in Agua Prieta, Mexico.

Students cooked hamburgers for 200 children in an underserved neighborhood, painted an amphitheater that had previously been a site for drug sales, handed out soccer balls to children at an after-school foster child facility, painted a mural they designed on the wall of the dining room at a nursing home, visited a local high school where they interested students in forming an Interact Club, and painted classrooms at a school for disabled children.

Intermountain Interactors were overwhelmed by some of the living conditions they saw and want to help more. The mother of one of the students who went on the trip said her daughter’s life is “forever changed”.

Interact students Maria Mercado and Jennifer Mercado talk with a boy at the foster children’s school in Agua Prieta, Mexico.

Rotarian Bob Jehn, who has organized the trip for the last two years said, “Providing these kind of experiences for the youth of our community gives me great satisfaction. It is a great pleasure for me to head up our Rotary Club’s youth programs, and seeing the Interact student’s happy, bright, smiling faces is what gives me hope for the future.”

Cade Harner wins 2019 Burney Lions Club Student Speakers Contest

Sophomore Cade Harner won the 2019 Student Speakers Contest at the Burney Lions Hall on Thursday evening February 21. Harner competed against two other Burney High School students, Senior Noah Bishop and Junior Paris Deaton-Geisler.

Judges Rodney and Sally Armstrong, Jiill Barnett, Charlene Sickler, Coach Melissa Madden, Student Speakers Noah Bishop, Cade Harner, Paris Deaton Geisler, and Lion Dr. Bill Cummings

This year’s speech topic is “Freedom of the Press: What does it mean?”  Each student was required to give a speech no longer that ten minutes and no shorter than five minutes. All three speakers emphasized the fundamental importance of freedom of press in a democratic society illustrating their talk with poignant quotes and examples. They also provided examples of dictatorial and autocratic societies in which the government denies freedom of the press. In his succinct speech, Harner addressed the current controversy about “fake news.”

Melissa Madden, activities director at Burney High School, helped to coach the students in preparation for their speeches.

Lion Dr. Bill Cummings officiated the contest. Charlene Charlene Sickler, Sally and Rodney Armstrong, and Jill Barnett served as judges. After all of the scores were tabulated, Dr. Cummings announced the winner.

Lion Dr. Bill Cummings announced that Cade Harner is the winner

All three participants were awarded certificates and presented with a check by Lion George Chapman. Harner won $100 for first place. The other speakers each received $25.

Lion George Chapman and Student Speakers Cade Harner, Parris Deaton Geisler, and Noah Bishop

The Club level contest is the first level of completion in the 82nd Annual Lions Multiple District Four Contest. Harner will now advance to the Zone level contest.

Lions Clubs throughout California and Nevada are holding club level contests during the month of February. Winners will advance through several levels to reach the District, Area, and Multiple District Four Contest.

Altogether, the Lions Fourth District Student Speakers Foundation will provide scholarships totaling $103,500.00. Fifteen District winners will each receive a $4,500 scholarship. Four Area winners will each receive an additional $6,500 scholarship, and the winner of the Multiple District Four Contest will receive an additional $10,000.00 scholarship.

PG&E Continues Restoring Power, Brings in More Resources

From PG&E:

Broken pole

Pacific Gas and Electric Company continues restoring power to thousands of customers each day in the North Valley and has brought in additional workers and mutual aid crews from Oregon to help local crews restore power more quickly.

More than 250 PG&E workers and partner utility workers are in the North Valley, where heavy, low-elevation snow and heavy rains on Wednesday fell trees and damaged power lines and poles. The extensive damage to PG&E equipment, coupled with blocked roads and snowy terrain, impacted 60,000 PG&E customers at its peak on early Wednesday morning.  As of 4 p.m. Friday, about 22,000 customer remain without power, most of them – or about 19,000 – are in Shasta County, which was hit especially hard by severe weather. Nearly 3,000 are without power in Tehama County communities of Cottonwood, Lyonsville, Mineral, Mill Creek and Manton.

Pole set

PG&E has established a small base camp at the Shasta County Fairgrounds in Anderson to stage materials and support crews.

With adverse weather this weekend, there may be fresh power outages. PG&E crews and its partner crews are working to assess and repair damages to electric equipment.

Even if customers don’t see crews in their neighborhood, crews are often working on another part of the system that needs repairs before their power can be restored. Power lines don’t always follow roads and often span fields, forests and rough terrain where access can be difficult in wet conditions.

PG&E knows extended electric outages pose significant challenges for our customers and apologizes for the inconvenience.  Power outages can sometimes affect gas appliances as they require power to operate.

PG&E understands reliable information about restoration timing is necessary to help customers make plans.  Customers may call 800-743-5002 for outage information or visit www.pge.com and click on the outage tab for information.  If no outage restoration time is listed for your outage, PG&E encourages customers to have a plan for possibly being without power for up to a few days.
