All are welcome to take a hike on the Heart K Ranch in Genesee Valley on Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with Trina Cunningham entitled “The Heart K Ranch from a Maidu perspective.”
Cunningham’s ancestors founded the Davis Ranch (now part of Feather River Land Trust’s Heart K Ranch), where she grew up, and her Mountain Maidu ancestors have inhabited Genesee Valley from the beginning of memory. Cunningham is a member of the Maidu Summit Consortium composed of nine Mountain Maidu groups, with a vision of site protection and stewardship throughout the Maidu homeland.

Stan and Marion Cauwet said they were sitting by the fireplace when the magnitude 5.7 quake struck.
Stan Cauwet, 55, sustained a broken left leg, a sprained right ankle and knee and a gash on his head that required stitches after the fireplace collapsed on top of him.
Marion Cauwet, 62, who said she was able to dive under a table, escaped with bruises to her back and head.

“Don’t dwell on the faults,” advised faculty presenter Darla DeRuiter at Feather River College’s commencement ceremony May 24, the day after a 5.7-magnitude earthquake rattled Plumas County and beyond.
DeRuiter presented two awards: Outstanding Alumnus to Elizabeth Powell for developing a local food movement, and a $1,000 Alice Foster Scholarship award to Michael Byrd, an environmental studies major.
Superintendent/President Kevin Trutna presided over the first class to graduate since he was appointed permanently to the head job at Feather River College last January.
In case of emergency, call 911.
That phrase is etched in people’s minds at an early age. Callers take for granted that their call will be answered in seconds and that help will arrive in minutes.
