Ft. Sage School District voters could recall and re-elect the same woman in the upcoming November election.
That’s because Trustee Rae Lynne Leonard is the subject of a recall on the Nov. 7 general election ballot. If the recall is successful, she’ll only lose one month of her term, which is set to expire Dec. 1. If it’s not, she’ll serve her last month.
But at the same Nov. 7 election, Leonard’s general term comes up for grabs again. Last week, she said she would refile for that spot on the ballot. That means Leonard could earn her seat again for four more years, no matter what happens in the recall.

Northeastern Rural Health Clinics will close its two satellite clinics in Westwood and Doyle July 31 in order to meet a projected budget shortfall of $788,000.
According to Chief Executive Officer Al Gugenberger, the state of California is cutting its Healthy Families Program and Expanded Access to Primary Care Program as well as its adult dental program through MediCal. Also a rural health grant worth $250,000 is being eliminated.
“We can’t sustain those two clinics with that kind of loss in state revenue,” said Gugenberger.
He added NRHC lost $138,795 at Doyle Family Practice and $109,220 at Westwood Family Practice during the last fiscal year from June 2008 to May 2009. On average the nonprofit provider of outpatient care in Lassen County lost $50 per patient in Doyle and from $53 to $21 per patient in Westwood.
