Oct. 1, 2013 — Your Community; Your Newspaper; Your Life.
That’s the theme for this year’s National Newspaper Week celebration Oct. 6 – 12.
This year’s theme only re-enforces the way Feather Publishing has always viewed its role in the community. This is your newspaper. The paper you are holding in your hands right now is produced in partnership with you. Our goal each week is to give you a snapshot that accurately reflects the community that we all share.
Sept. 24, 2013 — Lassen County residents and those living in Northeastern California undoubtedly will remember the moderate 5.7 magnitude earthquake that shook our region last May. That event should be a wake-up call that we truly do live in earthquake country.
While geologists cannot accurately predict when or where an earthquake will strike, a temblor could occur at any time in any part of the Golden State.
We encourage all our readers to be prepared for an earthquake. Information on the seven steps to earthquake safety is available at earthquakecountry.org, the website of the Earthquake Country Alliance.
