16A Tuesday,July 11,2000 Kids can pan for money rocks in Greenville A new Gold Digger Days event for kids 12 and under is being planned for Saturday, July 15, behind the Ever- green Market in Greenville. The event is called Kids Gold Rush and could bring a lot of fun and cash to little ones this summer. Somewhat like a treasure hunt and an Easter egg hunt, brightly painted gold rocks will be strewn in a section of Wolf Creek be- hind the Evergreen Mar- ket. Some rocks will have an amount ranging from $100 to $5 painted on them, which when found can be redeemed on-site for the cash. Hundreds of painted rocks will be in a desig- nated area of the creek, making the hunt for the money rocks mbre diffi- cult. The children can keep the rocks they find and will be given special pouches in which to take the rocks home. Gold pans, on loan from the Indian Valley Chamber of commerce, will be used to hold the rocks until a money rock is found or the bottom of the pan is full. The pans will need to be returned. The event is being sponsored by the Ever- green Market in Greenville, Main Street Antiques in Greenville, KD of Greenville, Pet Country in Quincy, and other individuals. Kids Gold Rush will be from2 -4 p.m. Signs will be posted showing the lo- cation of the trail to the creek. Children must be accompanied by an adult and must wear shoes that can be worn in the shallow creek. Parents are advised to park in the south lot next to Ev- ergreen Market. .Burning "suspended in Lassen county The California Depart- ment of Forestry and Fire Protection, Laasen Modoc Unit wants to remind all residents of Lassen County and the Lake Almanor basin, that open burning was suspended, effective Ju- ly1.
