9ulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012 9B Managing cat and dog population in Plumas County No MOR HOMELESS PETS HIGH SIERRA ANIMAL RESCUE High Sierra Animal Rescue is designating February as Spay and Neuter (S/N) Month. So what does that mean? With the start of a new year, this is a good time to think about getting your pet spayed or neutered to pre- vent any unwanted litters adding to the animal over- population here in Plumas County. S/N certificates are available for low-income fam- ilies. According to the Humane Society of the United States, approximately 4 million ani: mals are euthanized every year. Put another way, there are around 11,000 animals per day that are destroyed! The only way to solve this prob- lem is to manage the pet pop- ulation in the community. To make the February S/N program more fun, and hope- fully more successful, we are adding a Valentinetype twist. This will be an oppor- tunity for you to sponsor the S/N of a rescue animal and get your photo taken with the animal or, if you prefer, just have your name and/or a "memorial" message dis- played at the shelter. You can also send us a photo of your own dog with a sponsorship message on behalf of you and/or your pet. Look for more details in coming ads in the paper.

Bill Trow- bridge, a poet from Missouri, does aline job of picturing that particular initiation rite. Rental Tux It chafed like some new skin we'd grown, or feathers, the cummerbund and starched collar pinching us to show how real this transformation into princes was, how powerful we'd grown by getting drivers' licenses, how tall and total our new perspective, above that rusty keyhole parents squinted through. We'd found the key: that nothing really counts except a romance bright as Technicolor, wide as Cinerama, and this could be the night. No lie. --Bill Trowbridge Poem copyright 2006 by William Trowbridge .... American Lifein,letry4smadepossible by The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine. Plumas County Democrats to meet The Plumas County Demo- cratic Central Committee will hold its January meet- ing Thursday, Jan. 19, at 6:30 p.m. in the Plumas County Library conference room, Quincy. Committee chairwoman Trish Taylor reports that agenda items will include discussion of local planning for the 2012 election. "We'll be addressing how Plumas County Democrats can increase our presence in the community in ways that are useful, informative and engaging," said Taylor. She added that the group is organizing to help fund their part in the 2012 cam- paign and to readily spread the word on important mat- ters. "This year, propositions on the state ballot will be both numerous and complex, requiring significant depth of study," said Taylor. "Democrats will be com- mitted to doing the research necessary to determine the best course of action, and we hope to involve the commu- nity in discussions to that end." Members of the public are welcome to attend this and all future meetings of the lo- cal Democratic Party.
