Jan. 29, 2013 — No one driving down Main Street in Susanville can miss the Veterans Memorial Hall that sits directly across the street from Lassen High School, and now the stately old building can be a jewel of the community of which residents can be proud for many years to come.
Through its 2012-2013 capital improvements budget, the Lassen County Board of Supervisors allocated nearly $200,000 to the repainting project, which called for stripping the building of its old lead-based paint and giving it a facelift that would last well into the future.
The county owned building not only occupies a very visible spot on Main Street, it also represents the county and its many veterans as well.
Jan. 29, 2012 — Of late, gun control seems to be the topic one hears the most about whether at home, at work or out in the community and I have to admit, it’s a tough topic for anyone to take on regardless of his or her stance.
It was also an interesting discussion between my husband and son during a 35-mile drive to the theater in Susanville.
Multi-generational due to a 34-year age gap, life experiences and my husband’s service in the military made for a lively conversation.
