Case Number PR 13-00016
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Betty Zenaida Cortez, AKA Betty Zenaida Cortez-Young.
A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by: Elizabeth Cortez in the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas.
THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Elizabeth Cortez be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.
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: May 13, 2013, at 9:00 a.m., at the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas, Room 104, Dept. 2, 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 decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
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.
Attorney for Petitioner: Alice M. King, Post Office Box 3926, Quincy, CA 95971, (530) 283-0325, SBN: 144687.

Tests Showed Coliform Bacteria in the
Quincy CSD Domestic Water System
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct the situation.
We routinely monitor for drinking water contaminants in the water system. For December 2012, we collected 13 samples from our water system to test for the presence of coliform bacteria. Six of these samples showed the presence of coliform bacteria. The standard is that no more than one sample per month may show the presence of coliform bacteria.
What Should You Do?
You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.
People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1 (800) 426-4791.
What Does This Mean?
This is not an emergency. If it were, you would have been notified immediately.
Coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.
Usually, coliform bacteria are a signal that there may be a problem with our source of supply, storage, or distribution systems. Whenever we detect coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing to see if other bacteria of greater concern, such as fecal coliform or E. coli, are present. We did not find any of these bacteria in our subsequent testing, and further testing shows that this problem has been resolved.
What Happened? What Was Done?
On December 3, 2012, the District collected two routine samples from the distribution system that contained total coliform bacteria. On December 4, 2012, six repeat samples were collected from the distribution system, four of which were found to contain total coliform bacteria. Sample results suggested that the contamination was originating from the Claremont Spring transmission line. Therefore, this source was taken off-line. The entire distribution system was then disinfected and flushed. On December 27, 2012, five additional samples were collected from the distribution system and were found to be absent of total coliform bacteria. As weather permits, we will continue to investigate the source of the contamination from the spring transmission main. This source will not be used until sample results show the water is free of total coliform bacteria.
For more inforrnation please contact Larry Sullivan, QCSD General Manager, at 283-0836.
This notice is being provided to you by the Quincy CSD in compliance with the California Domestic Water Quality and Monitoring Regulations as a means of keeping the public informed.
