Wheels West owner funds FFA trip

Wheelsw

Susanville FFA’s veterinary science team will be traveling to Louisville, Kentucky in the fall to compete in the national convention without worry of having to raise money as Jason Rieger, owner of Wheels West, is covering the costs of the entire trip. The FFA members met with Rieger Friday, May 29 and presented him with letters thanking him for the donation. Pictured are Ashley Miller, left, Clarissa Faustino, Rieger, Lindsay Noggles and Courtney Jones. Rieger said he grew up in Susanville and when he came back to open the business part of his mission was to give back to the community. He said the team deserves it and worked hard and he didn’t want them to worry about how to get to nationals.

Former warden earns a college degree after 36 years

Saturday, May 30, 2015 — Bill Merkle was a captain at San Quentin State Prison and a student at Dominican University of California way back in 1979 when the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation transferred him to the California Correctional Center in Susanville — just six units shy of earning an associate degree in criminal justice.
    And now, on May 16, some 36 years later, Merkle donned a black cap and gown and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in humanities (the school no longer offers a criminal justice degree), finally achieving a goal he’d set for himself all those years ago.
