Wosick addresses residency

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 — During a recent meeting, one county supervisor took the opportunity to address his commitment to the community and his temporary resident status.

For the benefit of his constituents and the numerous community members he represents on various committees, Larry Wosick, who represents district 3, said he wanted to address “something that was unfortunately made big news” in a recent edition of the newspaper, regarding his eligibility.

“For some reason this becomes a point of contention and some people just can’t get over the fact that we have more than one residence. We do have two homes and one is outside of the district. That is not a secret, it was mentioned in my campaign, especially after I won my seat.”

Plumber ruptures natural gas line

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 — Last week explosions and fires following an apparent natural gas leak leveled a pair of apartment buildings in New York City’s East Harlem, killing and injuring many of residents.

Officials from the city of Susanville and the Susanville Sanitary District report ruptures of natural gas pipelines in the city of Susanville are a rarity, but a plumber clearing a sewer line at a Third Street residence Feb. 25 severed a natural gas line and caused a natural gas leak. The homeowners were evacuated, the natural gas leak was stopped and there were no injuries, explosions or fires.

Could a natural gas line rupture pose a safety risk to the people of Susanville? The answer depends upon whom you ask.
