Members of the Feather River Model A Club drive across the new Spanish Creek Bridge moments after a ribbon cutting dedication ceremony Monday, July 16. Model A’s were the first cars to drive across the original Spanish Creek Bridge in 1932, so it was fitting for them to commemorate the completion of the new bridge in similar fashion. For more on the ceremony, see next week’s newspaper. Photo by Laura Beaton

Sunset_3x

Environmental effects can often cause striking results in something as normal as a sunset. Lake Almanor Basin photographer Jan Davies captured this dynamic panorama July 10 from the East Shore. She hazards the guess that the haze from the Colusa Fire is likely what produced such amazing color. Steeped in the shadows of the brilliantly setting sun are Lassen Peak and a lone fisherman.
