NOTICE OF PETITION

TO ADMINISTER ESTATE of

Janice A. Young, decedent

Case Number PR19-00043

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Janice A. Young

A Petition For Probate has been filed by: Jan M. Young in the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Jan M. Young be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s wills and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court.

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Aug. 26, 2019, at 9:00 a.m., at the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas, Dept. 2, Courthouse, 520 Main Street, Room 104, Quincy, CA 95971.

If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.

You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Attorney for Petitioner: Jennifer McQuarrie, P.O. Box 1151, Quincy, CA 95971, (805) 252-1080, SBN: 191730

Legal Notice for

Opportunity to Object

Plumas National Forest Over-snow Vehicle Use Designation Project

The Forest Service is proposing to designate trails and areas in the Plumas National Forest for public over-snow vehicle (OSV) use. Discrete National Forest System (NFS) lands within the Plumas National Forest were analyzed and considered for OSV use designations within Butte, Lassen, Plumas, Sierra, and Yuba Counties, California.

The Responsible Official for this decision is Forest Supervisor Christopher Carlton. A Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and draft Record of Decision (draft ROD) were prepared. The Forest Supervisor’s draft decision would implement alternative 2 – modified. The FEIS and draft ROD can be found at the project’s website at: www.fs.fed.us/nepa/nepa_project_exp.php?project=47124. Notice of the document’s availability was sent to those who submitted project specific written comments during the scoping or comment periods. For more information or to request project specific materials, please contact Katherine Carpenter, Environmental Coordinator and Project Leader, at (530)-283-7742 or [email protected].

Approximately 74 percent of NFS lands within the Plumas National Forest administrative boundary are designated for cross-country OSV use in alternative 2 – modified. The existing condition allows OSV use on 1,147,825 acres of NFS land; alternative 2 – modified reduces available NFS lands by 25 percent. Alternative 2 – modified retains 100 percent of current groomed OSV trails and increases ungroomed OSV trails by approximately 370 percent.

Alternative 2 – modified includes the following activities: approximately 858,436 acres of NFS lands designated for public cross-country OSV use, generally above 3,500 feet elevation. There are 2,753 miles of undesignated, unmarked, ungroomed, underlying roads and trails within designated OSV-use areas in this alternative.

Forest-wide snow depth requirements for public OSV use will be implemented by:

Public, cross-country OSV use in designated OSV-use areas would be allowed when there are 12 or more inches of snow or ice covering the landscape, to avoid damage to surface and subsurface resources and comply with 36 CFR §261.15.

Public OSV use on designated, ungroomed OSV trails would be allowed when there is adequate snow depth to avoid damage to natural and cultural resources. To avoid damaging resources on designated, ungroomed OSV trails with underlying roads, a minimum of 6 inches of snow or ice is typically needed. Groomed and ungroomed OSV trails to be designated for public OSV use in all alternatives would overlie existing paved, gravel, or native surface travel routes with the exception of four trail segments with a total length of 0.74 mile.

The minimum snow depth for trail snow grooming to occur would be for 12 to 18 inches (consistent with California Snowmobile Grooming Standards).

Class 1 OSVs are allowed on all designated OSV trails and areas. Class 2 OSVs are only allowed on designated OSV trails available for grooming. [Class 1 OSVs are over- snow vehicles that typically exert lower ground pressure and include the following OSV types: snowmobiles, tracked motorcycles, snowcats, tracked all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and tracked utility terrain vehicles (UTVs). Class 2 OSVs are over-snow vehicles that typically exert higher ground pressure and include the following OSV types: tracked four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and tracked four-wheel drive trucks.]

A total of approximately 225.9 miles of OSV trails will be designated as follows:

Approximately 142.9 miles of designated OSV trails available for grooming.

Approximately 82.9 miles of designated OSV trails not available for grooming.

Approximately 67 miles of undesignated OSV trails will be groomed or ungroomed under the jurisdiction of Plumas and Sierra Counties, as follows:

Approximately 60.1 miles of undesignated OSV trails under other jurisdiction available for grooming (County roads).

Approximately 6.9 miles of undesignated OSV trails under other jurisdiction not available for grooming (County roads).

Approximately 1.4 miles of OSV trails that cross private lands, are under Forest Service jurisdiction, and available for grooming.

Sixteen OSV crossings of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) are designated. These crossings are located in areas where OSV use is designated on either side of the PCT. In all cases, OSVs crossing the PCT are required to do so at 90 degrees, or as close to 90 degrees as is safe, to minimize the time and distance needed to cross the trail. OSV users are to make crossings at, or as near as possible, to the designated crossing locations.

Twelve designated crossings utilize roads identified on the Plumas National Forest’s Motor Vehicle Use Map and are the width of the road (approximately 14 feet).

In coordination with the Tahoe National Forest, four proposed OSV crossings of the PCT at the shared forest boundary in the Lakes Basin open area would not use roads and would range in width up to 0.25 mile. Some of these proposed OSV crossings are wider than the width of a road because they are located in areas where snow conditions are highly variable during the course of a winter, for example areas prone to wind loading of snow and formation of cornices. These wider crossings give OSV users options to select a safe crossing of the trail under constantly changing, variable snow loading conditions.

Administrative Review of Objection Opportunities – The proposed project is an activity implementing a land management plan and not authorized under HFRA, there for it is subject to 36 CFR §218, Subparts A and B only.

Who May File an Objection – Objections will only be accepted from those who have previously submitted specific written comments regarding the proposed project during scoping or other designated opportunities for public comment in accordance with 36 CFR §218.5(a).
