Tangled lines and broken cross-arms left the residents of North Pine Street without power for nearly three days. For more photos, see the Feb. 24, 2015 edition of the Lassen County Times.

Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 — While most Susanville residents were without power for about eight hours following the Friday, Feb. 6 windstorm that hit the West Coast’s electrical grid hard, residents of the Eagle Lake area spent five days without electricity.

According to the Lassen Municipal Utility District, “The epic storm wreaked havoc on LMUD’s electric system as well as the Pacific Gas and Electric lines that feed our system. By 9 a.m. we had a system-wide outage. Downed trees, twisted power lines and poles snapped in two littered Lassen and Plumas counties. PG&E lost power to hundreds of thousands of customers and in turn, LMUD was literally in the dark.”

Transportation plan may face more changes

Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 — After receiving comments from Sierra Emergency Medical Services Alliance, the Lassen County Emergency Medical Service Transportation Plan was not approved at the regional level.

The Lassen County Board of Supervisors approved the plan during its Tuesday, Feb. 17 meeting and it includes changes the board adopted in January based on concerns raised from Mountain Life Flight.

The changes allow an air ambulance to apply for a provider agreement with Nor-Cal EMS, for itself or for a sub-contractor to provide ground transportation from Banner Lassen Medical Center to the Susanville Airport for patients who are to receive fixed-wing transports.

Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 — Did you know Elizabeth Pitcairn’s mysterious and famous Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius violin constructed by the master builder in a little shop in Italy in 1720, yes, the one that vanished from history for about 200 years and inspired an Oscar-nominated movie, has a name?

“Meet Felix,” Pitcairn said of her unique instrument, “named for Felix Mendelssohn whose descendents owned Felix in the early 1900s … People often ask me if I think of my violin as a male or female entity. I really think of him as male but with the soul of a woman … I need a man in my life, you know.”
