State aid sought for watermaster investigation

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 — The Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District should seek the state’s assistance in resolving its watermaster conflict.

That was the recommendation from board member Wayne Langston at the district’s Wednesday, March 25 meeting, responding to a letter and complaint information received from the State Water Resources Control Board.

While John O’Hagan, assistant deputy director, division of water rights, wrote, “We anticipate the district can also resolve disputes related to the decreed water rights, and, if necessary, will enforce against violations without the need of the state water board’s presence,” Langston said a review by an independent third party is needed to resolve the many issues facing the district, which serves as the watermaster.

Two Easter Egg Hunts planned in Westwood

Thursday, March 26, 2015 — Many parents, and even grandparents, who participated as a child in the Westwood/Lake Almanor Rotary Easter Egg Hunt will be taking their children to the hunt at 1 p.m. Easter Sunday, April 5, at Westwood Park on Greenwood Street. This activity sponsored by the Rotary Club to benefit the community has become an annual tradition.

Sheila Oxford and Connie Medici prepare 75 dozen eggs to hide. However, this year Oxford said they may get help from some new recruits. Those dyeing the eggs create 15 special eggs and children who find them receive a $2 bill.
