Lassen Count'/Times/West'wood PinePress Tuesday, May 1. 2007 31D: commumty su 0" By Shayla Ashmore Staff Writer "Obviously, this year we're not going to get anything built, but we need to make some arrangements for these kids to be able to show their animals and sell (them)," Lassen County Fair Manger Jim Wolcott told the Board of Supervisors last week during an impromptu report on the fire that destroyed the Livestock Pavilion on Saturday, April 21. "We've got a lot of commu- nity support with people call- ing and asking what they can do to help," Wolcott told the board at its Tuesday, April 24 meeting. On Friday, April 27, Susanville Supermarket Owner Rick Stewart called the local radio station to pledge $1,000 toward a tempo- rary facility to make sure the Junior Livestock Auction can go forward on Sunday, July 22. Stewart challenged other businesses to make similar donations. Wolcott said he planned a site committee meeting at 8 a.m. on Friday morning, April 27, to get an idea of how to show and sell the animals raised by youth in 4-H and FFA The committee threw out ideas and plans to come up with a strategy in the near future. "I think this is going to turn out positive," he said "It's sad, but I think it's going to be a positive step for us to step back and look at some- thing for the future and have a better facility for what we're doing." He told the board the fair's insurance includes a $15,000 deductible and Ewe insurance of $5oo,000 per occurrence. He also said there were six vehicles in the pavilion. The fair rents space for car, boat and RV storage in the off sea- son. District 5 Supervisor Jack Hanson thanked Wolcott for spending the night at the fair- grounds after the fire.
