If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Elmer Brown be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

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: Oct. 16, 2018, at 10:00 a.m., at the Superior Court of California, County of Lassen, Dept. 2, Room C, Courthouse, 2610 Riverside Drive., Susanville, CA 96130.

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.

Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code the general prevailing wage rates in the county in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations.

Addenda to modify wage rates, if necessary, will be issued to holders of the above referenced books.

The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in the serially numbered books issued for bidding purposes entitled “County of Lassen, Department of Public Works, State of California, Notice to Contractor’s, Proposal and Contract – Special Provisions for  Skyline Road Extension Construction Project, Lassen County”, and in copies of said book that may be examined at the offices described above where project, special provisions and proposal forms may be seen or are available on the internet at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/esc/oe/federal-wages/.

If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations.

The Contractor shall also furnish Certificates of Insurance, with the County of Lassen named as additional insured, in amounts and coverage as specified in the Specifications.

Inquiries or questions based on alleged patent ambiguity of the plans, specifications or estimate must be communicated as a bidder inquiry prior to bid opening. Any such inquiries or questions, submitted after bid opening, will not be treated as a bid protest.

The County of Lassen hereby notifies all bidders that it will affirmatively insure that in any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, disadvantaged business enterprises will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, sex or national origin in consideration for an award.

The County of Lassen may waive any informalities or minor defects or reject any and all bids. Any bid may be withdrawn prior to the above scheduled time for the opening of bids or authorized postponement thereof. Any bid received after the time and date specified shall not be considered.

Unless a petition calling for a special election, containing a sufficient number of signatures, is filed in the Lassen County Office of Education within 30 days following a provisional appointment, the appointment shall become effective.

Lassen National Forest Seeking Scoping Comments on Brockman Flat Fire Salvage Project

The Eagle Lake Ranger District (ELRD) of the Lassen National Forest (LNF) is seeking scoping comments for the Brockman Flat Fire Salvage Project. The project area is located within the Whaleback Fire (T31N, R10E; T32N, R10E; T32N, R11E; T33N, R10E; T33N, R11E), which started on July 27, 2018 and was contained in August 8, 2018 and burned approximately 18,137 acres, 57% of which burned between Lassen County Road A-1 and the western shore of Eagle Lake. Due to the unique nature of the area and the limited operating periods for nesting Bald Eagles, this forest community was evaluated separately in order to promptly reduce safety hazards and meet restoration objectives economically. Proposed activities include salvaging fire killed trees; treatment of activity slash and non-merchantable trees; falling and/or removal of hazard trees along major roads and access routes for recreational use areas; broadcast and pile burning for site preparation and fuels reduction; planting burned areas; maintaining and repairing existing roads, and blocking user-created routes.

The purpose of this notice is to invite you to participate in the planning process. A Categorical Exclusion (CE) for the Project will be prepared and is anticipated to be available in November of 2018. The public is encouraged to submit input as it relates to the proposed action and identify any issues about the anticipated effects from the proposed actions.

For detailed information please visit the forest website https://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/lassen/landmanagement/projects. Comments can be sent to: comments-pacificsouthwest-lassen-eagle-lake@fs.fed.us with the subject line of Brockman Flat Salvage Project. Electronic comments must be submitted in a format such as plain text (.txt), rich text format (.rtf), portable document format (pdf), or MS Word (.doc or .docx). Written comments should be mailed to Carol Thornton, District Ranger, ATTN: Brockman Flat Fire Salvage Project, 477-050 Eagle Lake Rd, Susanville, CA 96130; Written comments can also be delivered between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Eagle Lake Ranger District office, located at 477-050 Eagle Lake Rd, Susanville, CA 96130. Additional information contact Bobette Jones at bobettejones@fs.fed.us or (530) 257-4188.
