Director to pursue degree

Sunday, July 5, 2015 — In August, Desiree Naseath will leave her position of five years as director of the Westwood Family Resource Center to pursue a degree in sociology with an emphasis on social services at the University of California, Davis.
    A $2,500 scholarship from the California State Chapter of the Philanthropic Educational Organization, referred to as P.E.O., will help her as she pursues a career in research. The Ethel O. Gardner Scholarship is awarded to California women who have finished two years of college and are attending an accredited college or university. This spring Naseath graduated from Lassen Community College with an associate of science degree in human services and an associate of arts degree in university studies with an emphasis in social science. Selection for the P.E.O. scholarship is based on a student’s scholastic, character and activities record and financial need.

High school adds new protocol

Sunday, July 5, 2015 — The Lassen Union High School District has added new protocol after a substitute teacher complained about not being paid in a timely manner.
    Katie Anderson, a 2010 graduate of Lassen High School, recently moved home to start studying for upcoming medical school entrance exams and began substitute teaching in Feb. 26, at Lassen High School.
    She said, “I understand teaching can be very difficult and substitute teaching can be impacted by many variables. I understand my lack of teaching experience, my age and being a recent college student would create challenges, what I did not anticipate was the greatest challenge would be receiving a paycheck.”

CDFW begins trout removal at Gold Lake

Saturday, July 4, 2015 — State biologists began removing trout from Gold Lake in the Bucks Lake Wilderness last week.
    Kevin Thomas, a California Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist who is overseeing the project, said about 120 brook trout were removed with gill nets in the first two days.
    The CDFW plans to spend the next two summers pulling trout out of the small alpine lake northwest of Meadow Valley. The biologists’ goal is to eradicate the lake’s trout population in hope the endangered mountain yellow-legged frog will repopulate the area.
    Trout, which CDFW does not consider native to the lake, are one of the tiny amphibian’s main predators.
