RED BLUFF A heat wave that could reach the high triple-digit temperatures is expected in the coming week and the American Red Cross is urging residents to use caution when venturing out into the hot weather. "We all want a summer to re- member," said Lilly Wyatt, Amer- ican Red Cross Gold Country spokeswoman. "Those memories can be pleasant by following sim- ple tips to stay cool." The American Red Cross rec- ommends following these rules when participating in outdoor ac- tivities during the warm central valley weather. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing; carry water or juice and drink continuously even if you do not feel thirsty, avoid alcohol and caffeine, eat small meals and eat more often, avoid using salt tab- lets unless directed to do so by a physician, avoid strenuous activ- ity, stay indoors when possible and take regular breaks when engaged in physical activity on warm days. RED CROSS Tipstostay safe during heat wave By Julie Zeeb @DN_Zeeb on Twitter RED BLUFF The Tehama County Board of Supervisors is one step closer to adopting an ordinance to streamline the procedure for iden- tifying legal parcels that may be bought or sold within the county and what is needed for a certificate of compliance for those parcels that do not meet requirements. The supervisors took a look July 21 at the rough draft of the ordinance and made a motion for consensus to give an update 60 days from the meeting if the or- dinance has not been adopted by then. Recent court cases includ- ing one in Sonoma County have led to the board explore creat- ing an ordinance to define what makes a parcel subdivision legal. TEHAMA COUNTY Pa rc el I D ordinance moving forward By Heather Hoelscher DN_Heather on Twitter RED BLUFF A new rule that will require livestock exhibitors to also submit a still exhibit to the art exhibits was criticized by par- ents at the July 21 Tehama Dis- trict Fair Board meeting. According to the fair premium book, "All livestock exhibitors must also enter a still exhibit." Originally a requirement, the new rule will be optional until July 2017. The Fair's Chief Executive Of- ficer Kelley Ferreira proposed the new rule after speaking with three other fair boards and hear- ing the success those fairs had with it. San Benito County Fair has required still exhibits for two years, Monterey County Fair has required them for four years and Salinas Valley Fair for five years. All have been very successful, Fer- reira said. Entries to the fair have de- clined, so Ferreira has been look- ing for ways to change that trend. Board President Linda Durrer said fair attendance and funding have increased at the other fairs who have implemented the new rule. The still exhibit could be as simple as taking one picture to add to the photography exhibit, said Ferreira. He thought it would be a great addition to the exhibits. Mary Pryde, a mother and res- ident of Shasta County, said her children spend so much time on their animals for the fair, to add this to their work load is "dis- couraging." She thought the new rule should not be applied this year. DISTRICT FAIR Boardseeksmoreexhibitentries Newrulewouldrequirelivestockexhibitorstoenterastillexhibit By Julie Zeeb @DN_Zeeb on Twitter RED BLUFF The Tehama County Board of Supervisors authorized the chairman to sign a purchase and sale agree- ment Tuesday with the Califor- nia Newspaper Partnership for the purchase of the Daily News building on Diamond Avenue for about $500,0000 with the intent to renovate the building to be the site of the new Te- hama County Library. "We're so excited," Acting Li- brarian Sally Ainsworth said. "Thank you board. We can hardly wait to move forward. We will need the community's financial support." The county has set aside about $4 million for the proj- ect, which is estimated to cost about $6.7 million, with $4 mil- lion for the construction itself and escalation in cost, $1.75 mil- lion for fees, furniture, fixtures and equipment and $500,000 for site acquisition. Buying an existing building was a cost-effective way to get a building similar in size to the existing library and the loca- tion was a part of why the site was chosen, Chief Administra- tor Bill Goodwin said. JK Architecture Partner- ship, which did the feasibil- ity study for the building, pro- vided a presentation on the project following an approval by the board of an agreement for the engineering and ar- chitectural services of the new library. President Jordan Knighton and partner Derek Labrecque both said the gen- eral structure of the building was good, but there are some areas that would need work or replacement. Seismic upgrades will be re- quired as well as replacement of the roof, the electrical sys- tems and HVAC unit and the parking lots will need to be re- done, Labrecque said.
