Portola city members discussed the logistics of hiring a new city manager with the City Council at a special meeting Oct. 30.

Once again, the Almanor Fishing Association is doing its part to ensure Lake Almanor continues to thrive as a popular fishing destination. On Oct. 31, a group of 19 volunteers stocked the AFA fish rearing cages with 50,000 Eagle Lake diploids, which will be released into the lake once they reach maturity.
The Fish Pen Project was established in 1979 by community members Rhonda Dakota, Ruben Chavez and Jim Pleau. With help from local volunteers and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, AFA has continued the long-standing tradition of rearing fish in the Hamilton Branch cages.
