Students at Chester High got one more thing to tweet about last Thursday — tweeters. The students participated in the inaugural Student Bird Count sponsored by the Plumas Audubon Society and Rob Wade.

In addition to the Chester bird count, one for Portola students is scheduled for later this spring. The count at Portola High School is set for June 6, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at noon.

Plumas County residents have participated in National Audubon's annual Christmas Bird Count held every December and Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Great Backyard Bird Count held every February.

“I wasn’t consulted by anyone and I didn’t know it was going to be on the agenda,” Livingston said during the board’s May 6 meeting.

The agenda no longer includes an invocation, but that didn’t stop Pastor George Tarleton from regularly saying a prayer during the public comment portion of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors meetings.

Tarleton wasn’t present at the board’s May 6 meeting, but regular board observer Larry Douglas was and spoke up about the Supreme Court’s May 5 decision that cleared the way for Christian prayer to open public meetings.
