How many voting members are in the House of Representatives? Or, try this one — how many changes or amendments are there to the U.S. Constitution?

Know the answers to these? Christopher Nicholson does. The Englishman recently answered 150 similar questions in obtaining his U.S. citizenship.

Nicholson aced the U.S. Citizenship Test and became a true, blue American on Dec. 17, 2014.

Animal control regulations call for responsible pet ownership

Want your “Lassie” to come home?

Then get her licensed, says Portola City Community Service Officer Leah Turner — the top dog when it comes to animal control regulations.

“The importance of having a dog license is to help the city find the dog’s owner if the dog is lost and it will be returned home,” she said. “If it doesn’t have a license, then the dog goes to Quincy animal control and the owner will be cited for not having a license and no proof of rabies (vaccination).”

According to regulation, all dogs over the age of 4 months within city limits must be licensed. Licenses can be purchased at City Hall with a proof of a rabies certificate. If the dog is altered, and the owner has proof, the annual license fee is $10. If not, that price is quadrupled. Add a comment

“My goal for next year is to be in the top three,” said Erica Waldeck, EPHC telemedicine coordinator. “But fourth is pretty good and I’ll take it.” Add a comment

Staff Writer

Be on alert — scammers posing as Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative employees are calling the utility’s customers and demanding an immediate payment for service.

PSREC officials say the con artists are primarily targeting commercial customers, and threaten service disconnection unless they buy a prepaid debit card or use an online payment service to pay their bill at once.
