Banner announces operating room tours

Thursday, May 14, 2015 — Banner Lassen Medical Center’s surgery department wants to show the public what goes on behind those closed doors.
    Except for the health care providers, not many people get to see what it’s like in an operating room unless they are going in for surgery. The surgery department wants to share what they do in an inviting way by hosting an open house for the public and local physicians from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 14. The staff will offer door prizes, refreshments, gifts, tours, information about services offered at Banner Lassen and the opportunity to meet with surgeons and surgical staff members.

LLTT5xb

Old Man Joaquin is depicted on one of Susanville’s murals. Pat Owens, Joaquin’s great-great-grandson, will discuss the family’s Paiute history at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 14 at 845A Joaquin St. at the Susanville Indian Rancheria.

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 — Due to a large response from the public, the location of the Discover Lassen County’s Native American heritage presentation by Pat Owens has been changed.
    The 7 p.m. Thursday, May 14 presentation by Owens, the great-great-grandson of Old Man Joaquin, will be held at 845A Joaquin St. at the Susanville Indian Rancheria.
    Sauweep Joaquin, Owen’s great-great-grandfather’s Paiute name, was born about 1830 and began life in the nomadic lifestyle of his tribe, roaming from Pyramid Lake to Eagle Lake.

As a young man, he was a scout for Chief Winnemucca and later became a head man, or sub-chief for his tribe. Perhaps he is best known as the only survivor of the June 1866 massacre at Papoose Meadows near Eagle Lake.
