There are few things that more aptly represent the caring fabric of our community than the regular community suppers that take place in the county.

By law it will take a minimum of five years to relicense the Bucks Creek hydroelectric system and the clock doesn’t even start ticking until Dec. 31, 2013.
Bucks Creek Hydroelectric Project, FERC No. 619, includes the reservoirs at Three Lakes, Bucks Lake, Lower Bucks Lake and Grizzly Forebay, as well as the Grizzly and Bucks Creek powerhouses.
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. holds the license with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to operate the system, but it expires Dec. 31, 2018. A new license application must be filed by Dec. 31, 2016, but to start the process, a notice of intent and pre-application document must be submitted no later than Dec. 31 of this year.
Although snow can still be seen speckled across some of the mountains surrounding Round Valley Lake, signs of spring are predominant throughout the historic area. The waters are high, the plant life is turning green and ducks are gliding along the lake in search of their next meal. The peaceful manmade lake is only 3 miles from Greenville, and provides the perfect escape for families to relax and enjoy the beautiful area. Photo by Samantha P. Hawthorne
