Girl scouts win $750 in competition

Nevada City Girl Scout Troop 192 recently won the $750 first prize in a recycling competition organized by Waste Management.

In eight weeks, the girls collected 14,300 pounds of recycled materials, troop leader Marigold Patterson said. Twelve troops entered the competition and 22,000 pounds of materials were recycled.

The girls traveled to a River Cats game, where they served in the color guard.

The girls plan to save the majority of their winnings for a trip to Disneyland when they are in the sixth grade.

Troop members include Peyton White, Mercedes Nabo, Riley White, Hannah Patterson, Megan McAtee, Macayla Jefferis, Miranda Menig, Melisa Curtis, Alexis Nabo and Bethanie Carnaol.

Bridgeport recreation to be discussed

The future of recreation at the Bridgeport crossing will be discussed Tuesday at a meeting of the South Yuba River planning group. The discussion will focus on commercial use of public property, sanitation and trash, visitor facilities, and fees.

Volunteers work with State Park, National Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management officials to plan for the future of Bridgeport crossing, part of the massive South Yuba River Comprehensive Management Plan project – a community effort to cooperatively manage the 39-mile river corridor.

For more information, view the plan at http://www.south on the Web. Anyone can attend the meeting on Tuesday, July 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the LOVE building at 660 Minnie St., Grass Valley.
