Fire Safe Council gets support from supes

Friday, Aug. 21, 2015 — The Lassen County Board of Supervisors sent a letter to United States Forest Service offices detailing county project priorities they support, including a Lassen County Fire Safe Council project.
    Topping the list, in a letter addressed to Randy Moore, the Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Regional Forester, was the fuel reduction treatments through the Diamond Mountain Initiative project.  
    “It is our understanding from the Lassen County Fire Safe Council, if the Lassen National Forest does not immediately place this project into Tier 1 status in Fiscal Year 2015, the community may lose an opportunity to obtain $500,000 from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy for fire reduction treatments in 2016-2017,” read the letter.

New director takes over family resource center

Friday, Aug. 21, 2015 — Elizabeth Allen is the new director of the Westwood Family Resource Center located at the One Stop at Second and Birch streets. She replaces Desiree Naseath who left the position Aug. 14 to move to the valley where she will attend the University of California, Davis to obtain a degree in sociology.
    “Desi has been great. There will be big shoes to fill,” said Allen, who trained under Naseath for a few weeks before stepping into the role.
    Although new to the position of director, Allen is familiar with the community and the work the center does. She gained insight when she was hired as the Westwood case manager for Lassen County Behavioral Health in May 2013, working from the One Stop where the Westwood Family Resource Center is located.

Honey Lake TV plans for expansion

Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015 — Honey Lake TV is planning to expand its services into areas where there are no other signals available to residents. According to Jim Pecore, vice president of the Honey Lake TV board
of directors, expansions will first begin in Lake Forest because there is already an audience and enough people to make it feasible.
    Pecore said, “That’s our first little baby step that will give us some learning experience as we continue our goal to expand into Westwood, Clear Creek, Spalding and greater Eagle Lake area because that’s underserved. Those guys are so far away they have to have a satellite dish.”
