News for the Week of March 26, 2020

It’s snow fun. . . IF YOUR PLACE GETS buried in snow, you just have to make the best of moving it out of the way. For Donnie and Patricia Clark, that meant building snow figures, sort of resembling a chess set all mixed up. This photo was taken after the last major storm.

Join the Main Street Cruise Saturday

It may not be “American Graffiti” in size, but come out and join the Quarantine Blues Cruise on Alturas Main Street Saturday March 28 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Cruising Main Street has always been part of the community, more so in the olden days, like to 50’s and 60’s, and reviving it for a good cause may ease some stress.

Sage Stage suspends some routes, will deliver groceries, prescriptions

Sage Stage has temporarily suspended the intercity services to Klamath Falls, OR, Redding, CA, and Reno, NV. The suspension is effective March 23, 2020 for an unknown amount of time.

This measure is being taken in an effort to protect drivers from exposure to the COVID-19 virus and to protect Modoc from potential exposure related to out of county travelers.

No interruption in the garbage service

Sheltering in place at home may lead to increases in the volume of residential solid waste.

To accommodate this situation please be advised that curbside service will continue pursuant to existing schedules by Alturas Disposal and Modoc County Transfer Stations will remain open.
