Aanestad brings Gov. to Yuba City

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will speak at a major water policy event scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Yuba City.

Sen. Sam Aanestad (R-Grass Valley) has been working closely with the Governor on a proposed $3 billion water bond, called the “Flood Protection and Clean, Safe, Reliable Water Supply Bond and Financing Act of 2006 & 2010.” Aanestad is serving as the legislative author for the governor’s bond with the introduction of SB 1166.

The governor will take part in the annual meeting of the Northern California Water Association in Yuba City. The meeting will be held at the Bonanza Inn, located at 1001 Clark Avenue in Yuba City. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., and the governor is expected to deliver a water policy speech to Association membership.

CPR classes offered at hospital

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital will offer four classes on infant and child cardiopulmonary resuscitation in 2006. “CPR for Family & Friends” is being offered at no charge for those who wish to participate. Funding for the classes is provided by a grant by First 5 of Nevada County.

In one four-hour class, participants will learn to recognize the signs of life-threatening emergencies, such as cardiac arrest, breathing difficulties, respiratory arrest and choking; and learn to perform CPR and relieve foreign body airway obstruction.

All four classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. The classes are offered March 18, June 17, Sept. 23, and Dec. 2. Pre-registration is required.
