Authority seeks pool designer

Friday, May 1, 2015 — Jared Hancock, the executive officer for the Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority, begins the process of finding a designer for the community swimming pool to be built on the old Roosevelt Pool site.

The authority, created by a joint powers agreement between the city of Susanville and Lassen County, directed Hancock to put out a request for proposals for a firm that could both design and build the pool at its Tuesday, April 21 meeting. The authority also directed Hancock to seek a firm that could design the pool to be built by other construction companies and contractors.

Last December, the authority board approved a preliminary site design for an L-shaped pool to be constructed at the old Roosevelt Pool site — a revision created by Hancock of a design provided by Aquatic Designs, a consulting firm hired by the authority.

Students learn hands-on through Trout in the Classroom

Thursday, April 30, 2015 — Students in seventh through 12th-grade attending Westwood High School receive hands-on lessons about the environment in which they live through a program called Trout in the Classroom.

During the school year students raise Eagle Lake Trout from eggs to fry and release them into Hamilton Branch, an approved cold-water stream. The eggs are obtained through the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife and Feather River Trout Unlimited.

According to Jessica Suchorski, the science teacher, the educational focus depends on the science class. Some students study water quality, others the anatomy of fish or habitat or lifecycle.
