Chapman announces retirement

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 —Veteran Lassen County District 2 Supervisor Jim Chapman announced last week he will not seek another term in office.

Chapman began his career as a supervisor in 1976 — 40 years ago. His only defeat at the polls as a supervisor came in his third election in 1984.

“I was four years out,” Chapman said, “but I came back and I’ve been here ever since. But in 2016 I won’t be filing as a candidate, and it seemed like this is a good opportunity to let everybody know. My decision is designed to give the next generation an opportunity to put a campaign together.”

CHP encourages teens to start smart and stay safe

Saturday, June 14, 2014 — Traffic collisions are the leading cause of death of teenagers across the United States and in California.

“The first year behind the wheel for a teen driver can be one of the most dangerous times in their life. Teens are far more likely to be killed in a vehicle collision than in anything else,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “Developing safe driving habits is the first step toward avoiding a collision.”

Parents and teenagers can sign up for a Start Smart class by contacting officer Shaun Simmons at the Susanville CHP office at 257-2191. The next class is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, June 19 at the Lassen High School library.
