A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

A blur of meetings

The past few days have been a blur as we worked hard to be prepared to argue to the School Board not to close Pliocene Ridge (meeting was Tues. night), sat through hours of the meeting (I did knit a scarf up as a Christmas gift while I sat through the meeting), and were put on hold further when the Board decided to postpone the decision till January, when they meet on the other side of the County in Loyalton.

Yesterday was the First Five Commission meeting, which was more relaxed and upbeat. We were celebrating receiving a State Library Grant for the Loyalton Library and Childrens' Center, which will match grant funding already received from the California Department of Education for the childrens' center portion of the building. While we are excited that construction can begin, we also discussed our anxiety about raising funds to cover operating costs.

Today's big event will be the Winter Party at Pliocene Ridge School.
