NOTICE OF PETITION

TO ADMINISTER ESTATE of Dean Gerald Maddalena; a.k.a. Dean G. Maddalena, a.k.a. Dean Maddalena, decedent

Case Number PR17-00045

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Dean Gerald Maddalena; a.k.a. Dean G. Maddalena, a.k.a. Dean Maddalena

A Petition For Probate has been filed by: Christina A. Maddalena in the Superior Court of California, County of Plumas.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Christian A. Maddalena be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s wills and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court.

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: Nov. 13, 2017, 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.

Petitioner: Christina A. Maddalena, 65 North Beckwith Street, Portola, CA 96122, (530) 249-1686

Opportunity to Comment on the Ramelli Ranch Well Project, Beckwourth Ranger District, Plumas National Forest

The Beckwourth Ranger District, Plumas National Forest is soliciting public comments on the proposed Ramelli Ranch Well Project. The objectives of this project are to: 1) provide a reliable source of water as needed during the time that the cows are in the meadows. 2) Reduce the concentrated cattle use in the meadow. The proposed activities include placing a well and water trough on the Ramelli Ranch Allotment in the Upper Ross pasture. In the Lower Ross meadow the Forest Service would be capping off the old spring. It is anticipated that these actions would mitigate the concentrated grazing use in the meadow.

The project area is located on National Forest System lands at Ramelli Ranch in the Upper Ross meadow. The allotment is south of the rest stop that is approximately 3 miles east of Portola in Plumas County, California. The upper Ross meadow is further south of the railroad tracks. The project area occupies Township 23 North, Range 14 East, Sections 33 and 34, Mt. Diablo Base Meridian.

A proposed action including a detailed map of the proposed project activities is available online at the Plumas National Forest website at:  www.fs.fed.us/nepa/nepa_project_exp.php?project=51658

The proposed action and supporting documents are also available for review at the Beckwourth Ranger District, 23 Mohawk Road, Blairsden, CA 96103.

Specific written comments on the proposed project would be most useful when received by December 1, 2017 so that they can be considered early during project development and analysis. The Forest Service will consider your scoping comments to help identify issues associated with the project.
