After being snowed out last week, parents of high school students will have another chance to say what they want in a new district superintendent.

The Nevada Joint Union High School District will hold a community forum from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday in NU’s Don Baggett Theater. Ken Matheson of the California School Board Association’s Executive Search Services will moderate the meeting.

Also, a superintendent questionnaire can be downloaded from the district Web site (, click on Superintendent and then Superintendent Search 2007) or picked up at district schools or the district office.

To participate on the Selection Advisory Committee, download the application at the same Web site or pick up a form at a district school.

A trip to Washington, D.C., and New York is an annual tradition for eighth graders in Nevada County.

A benefit to help send children from Union Hill School will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Charlie’s’ Cafe at 145 S. Auburn St. in Grass Valley. The theme of the evening will be Taco Night.

Tickets can be bought at Charlie’s’ Cafe; Express Video at 305 Railroad Ave. in Nevada City; and Biotech Calendar, 132 Olympia Park Rd., in Glenbrook Basin.

Saturday night is a good time to change the batteries in all household smoke detectors, local fire agencies advised.

Sunday begins Daylight Saving Time. When you push clocks ahead one hour Saturday night, check your household safety equipment as well, Chief Brad Harris of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit, said.

Here are guidelines to insure your family is protected:

• Test your smoke detectors once a month.

• Keep the detector clean.

• Change the batteries twice a year.

• Replace your smoke detectors every 10 years.

• Detectors need to be installed on every level of your home and inside all bedrooms.

• Practice home fire drills twice a year.
