Westwood Museum breakfast considered a success

Saturday, July 25, 2015 — Westwood Museum Inc. had another successful fundraiser which helps make the nonprofit fiscally strong, a goal of all board members. The Logger’s Breakfast, served Saturday, July 11, as part of the Paul Bunyan Mountain and Blues Festival, netted $848.48.
    The board of directors critiqued the fundraiser during a Tuesday, July 14, meeting and agreed selling books and other items from the Westwood Museum store at the community center where the breakfast was held had been beneficial. Also using artifacts as table decorations worked well, prompting many to tour the museum later in the day.
    Kay Johnson, docent coordinator, said there had been a higher volume of visitors to the museum during the past two weeks. She said she was very proud of the job the docents were doing.

transport coordinator, Snoopy first appeared on the Facebook page Susanville Needs when he was approximately 8 weeks old.

State appeals court sends case back to Lassen County

Saturday, July 25, 2015 — A Herlong man convicted by a Lassen County Superior Court jury last August on misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty and abandoning five puppies will have another day in court.

     The appeals court did not cite a reason for sending the case back to Lassen County, but it did reference Government Code Section 68915 and two court cases.
    Taylor maintains his innocence and alleges law enforcement and the courts violated his constitutional rights. He also alleges his defense counsel was insufficient. He was sentenced to two years summary probation and 30 days in jail as a condition of probation in September 2014.
