Jan. 22, 2013 — January means its time for the Lassen County Times newsroom to get busy with the production of the 2013-2014 Lassen County Visitors Guide. This colorful publication is the area’s premiere guide to our picturesque corner of Northeastern California, and we’d like to offer photographers an opportunity to have their work seen in print by thousands of readers who pick up a copy of the publication at locations all across the county and those who view an electronic version when they visit our website, lassennews.com.
This year we plan to include information about places, events and lifestyles we haven’t covered in the past including hunting, nonprofit events, happenings in the North County, the hot springs in Wendel and ranching activities in Lassen County.
Jan. 22, 2013 — The past two days my husband, Terry, and I dedicated an hour to chop the snow in front of our house with a pick and shovel it into our pickup. The goal is to set the church van free. It became trapped in a snow bank a few days before Christmas. We have committed to hauling a truckload or two of snow a day until we have chipped and hauled all the snow to the fence line. Our estimated time for the job is one week because we have to work around other obligations.
