Opportunity to Comment on Cascade Trailhead Project
The Plumas National Forest, Mt. Hough Ranger District, is preparing an Environmental Assessment for the Cascade Trailhead Project. This project would develop a trailhead and improve the access road for the Cascade Trail and would be designed to allow parking and access to the trail. Improvements would include a concrete vault toilet building and concrete pad, an accessible concrete parking space and walkway to the toilet building, and a parking area. The parking area would be surfaced with aggregate and/or native surface. The road improvement would include raising the road elevation to improve drainage and reduce resource damage that is caused by vehicles driving around mud puddles when the road gets wet. Cascade Trailhead is located in T 25N, R 9E, Section 26, near Quincy, California.
The Cascade Trailhead is at the terminus of a Forest Service road that parallels Spanish Creek from Old Keddie Highway. The very popular three-mile trail leaves from the trailhead and provides a unique opportunity to meander along Spanish Creek. There are six to eight dispersed campsites along the Forest Service Road leading to the trailhead which experience heavy use in late spring through fall months. The lack of toilet facilities in the area is becoming a health and safety issue.
The purpose of this trailhead project is to improve the access to a popular community trail system, improve the quality and availability of recreation opportunities, and address sanitation impacts through installation of a vault toilet building.
At this stage of our planning, we are asking for comments and concerns about this project. Your knowledge of the area is of great value and will help us with project design and analysis. Comments will be used to identify issues and develop alternatives to the proposed action. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments should be as specific as possible.

Case Number PR09-00042
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Geraldine M. Esola, aka Geraldine Mae Esola.
A Petition for Probate has been filed by: Paul G. Howard in the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas.

The petition requests the decedent's will 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: Jan. 11, 2010, at 9:00 a.m., at the Superior Court of California, Dept. 2, County of Plumas, Courthouse, 520 Main Street, 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 deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the date of the hearing date noticed above.
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.
