Agency receives $15,000 grant

Thursday, Aug. 27, 2015 — Blue Shield of California Foundation last week announced a grant of $15,000 to Lassen Family Services to strengthen its capacity to provide critical services and shelter for survivors of domestic violence in Susanville. These core-operating funds offer the flexibility to respond to changes and challenges as they arise, so vital community organizations like Lassen Family Services can continue to reach many of the most vulnerable Californians.
    “It is a privilege to partner with and support California’s network of domestic violence service providers, including Lassen Family Services,” said Peter Long, Ph.D., president and CEO of Blue Shield of California Foundation. “Their role in the community is absolutely essential, and we are committed to ensuring they have the resources they need to continue serving domestic violence survivors and their families.”

Authority revises formation document

Thursday, Aug. 27, 2015 — The Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority, a group seeking to build a community swimming pool in the city of Susanville, directed staff Monday, Aug. 17 to make revisions to the joint powers agreement that formed the special district.
    Jim Chapman, vice president of the group, said the revisions were necessary to reflect the changes in the process that have evolved since the agency was formed more than a year ago and to remove some clauses that are unenforceable. While the authority directed staff to make the changes, they first must be approved by the two governmental entities that voted to form the district — the Susanville City Council and the Lassen County Board of Supervisors.

Walk to School event considered

Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 — Students at Janesville School will have the potential to participate in Lassen County Public Health’s annual Walk to School event.
    Emily Griffin, Lassen Public Health’s SNAP education coordinator, addressed the Janesville School Board of Trustees with rough plans for the event, slated to take place Sept. 19. The event is designed to encourage students to walk to school, if able, and to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. However, some board members found issues with some of the pitched ideas for the second annual event, which included completely closing down Main Street in front of the school and forcing parents to drop off students out of the school zone so children could walk to school.
