Lassen supervisors endorse Horne

Four of Lassen County’s supervisors have endorsed Nevada County Supervisor Sue Horne in her run for the 3rd Assembly District seat in the state legislature.

Horne, a Lake of the Pines resident who represents the county’s District 2, is running for the Republican spot on the ballot being vacated by Assemblyman Rick Keene, R-Chico.

Although California county supervisors are elected on a nonpartisan basis, the four supervisors from Lassen County who endorsed Horne have Republican ties. They are Brian Dahle, Lloyd Keefer, Jack Hanson and Bob Pyle.

Horne is the chairwoman the Regional Council of Rural Counties, in which Lassen County’s supervisors are active.

Group seeks daily Sac commuters

A few seats are open in a van pool of local residents commuting to Sacramento.

The group of local residents rents a 14-passenger van and travels to downtown and midtown Sacramento each weekday to save on gas, parking and vehicle wear and tear. The vanpool leaves Grass Valley, with pick-ups in Lake of the Pines and Auburn. All van riders split the cost of the van rental and gas.

For more information, contact George Olive, van pool coordinator, at 263-2350 or
