Cruise on an aircraft carrier brings a new perspective

A metal giant floated before me the night of Dec. 13. I stood at the harbor, heaved my backpack onto my shoulder and kept my eyes on the 950,000-ton ship that would be my hotel for the next four days.

The USS Nimitz towered over crowds of civilians, casting shadows in the night over my new family. After weaving through fellow travelers and Navy sailors, climbing a flight of aluminum stairs and crossing over onto the aircraft carrier, the Shipps found themselves on a ship.

A quick look at a year that was hardly ordinary

It’s hard to believe that another year is drawing to a close. For the next couple weeks, the Feather Publishing staff will be turning the pages of our 2013 editions to compile our annual Year in Review feature.

The Year in Review will be part of your regular newspaper scheduled to hit the newsstands on New Year’s Eve.

Sifting through a year’s worth of papers is almost always enlightening. Looking back sparks memories. Like turning the pages of a family album, we laugh at one page only to cry at the next.

But one thing is certain: No year is ordinary. And 2013 was no exception.

Last week’s report that former Indian Valley Community Services District general manager Leanna Moore is accused of stealing more than $380,000 from the small district comes on the heels of a similar report in Chester earlier this year. Former Chester Public Utility District general manager/fire chief William Turner is accused of charging $1,720 on the district’s credit card at a Reno strip club.

As we prepare to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday this week, the Christmas shopping season begins in earnest with a mad rush to buy all those colorful presents we stash under our brightly decorated Christmas trees to surprise our family, friends and loved ones.

This holiday season, we once again challenge each of our newspaper readers — yes, you — to spend at least $100 shopping at home this holiday season. If we all did that it would pump more than $1.8 million into Plumas County’s economy. And that’s based on a conservative average of just two readers per newspaper.

It’s a simple concept that we first introduced four years ago. We also mentioned it last week in the Business Scene column of this newspaper — and that is because it has proven to be worth its weight in gold.
