What do you get for a 100-year-old cash register on its birthday? Cash would seem the obvious answer. However, at the party Kelly Tan and her family have planned for their centennial register, at Young’s Market in Taylorsville on Saturday, Oct. 18, she thinks cake will suffice.

That’s why she’s holding a cake contest, along with many other activities, for anyone who wishes to attend.

The party will be from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be free food and beverages; samples of fine cheeses; live music; and homemade, nitrate-free barbecued sausage — free-range chicken will also go on the barbecue.

For the last five years, Plumas Audubon Society has been tracking grebes on Lake Almanor and collecting data about their populations, migration and nesting habits.

The focus of the project is to help the grebes survive on the lake by stabilizing water levels. In 2010, the water surface elevation dropped more rapidly than in any other year and grebes had the lowest reproductive success.

David Arsenault, executive director of Plumas Audubon, believes there is a direct link between water levels and the use of Lake Almanor water by Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
