Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013 — If all goes according to plan, Lassen County residents may see the construction of a swimming pool begin as early as next year — happy and welcome news to a generation of youngsters who have been without a pool for more than a decade since the closing of Roosevelt Pool.
The recently created Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority Governing Board held its first meeting at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10 in the Susanville City Council Chambers. The authority’s purpose is to facilitate the design, construction and operation of a community swimming pool.

If you stopped by Susanville Supermarket last Monday evening between 6 and 7 p.m., you might have met me in the entrance working as a volunteer bell ringer for the local Salvation Army. This was my first experience as a bell ringer, and it was fun. Cold, but fun.
I’m not involved with the Salvation Army in any way, although my grandmother met my grandfather when they both served in the army in Hawaii a decade or so after the turn of the last century. My grandmother’s sister also worked for the organization most of her life in Santa Barbara. My grandmother, who lived in San Diego, Calif., earned the nickname “The Angel of Tijuana” due to her work with the prostitutes in that south-of-the-border city. We have many family photos of my grandmother and my aunt playing in a Salvation Army band on the streets of Tijuana — complete with one of those big old Salvation Army bass drums people always talk about.

VA does this because of the unique circumstances of their military service. If one of these conditions is diagnosed in a veteran, VA presumes the circumstances of his/her service caused the condition, and disability compensation can be awarded.
Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013 — December 2013 marks the 13th anniversary of my move to Westwood with my husband, Terry. It was an unlikely destination for us in 2000 — a place we would not have chosen to call home in our own wisdom but it is the town and the ministry God chose for us.
Terry had just completed Calvary Chapel Bible College and we were praying for God to show us what he wanted us to do and where he wanted us to go. He provided an opportunity for Terry to pastor Calvary Chapel Westwood. Terry was ordained as a Calvary Chapel pastor by Pastor Louis Neely, of Warehouse Christian Ministries, shortly before our move.
