Supervisors Distribute 625 Frozen Turkeys for Thanksgiving
November 23, 2011

Sutter County Supervisors on Monday helped distribute 625 frozen turkeys to organizations providing free Thanksgiving meals.

Larry Montna, Stan Cleveland, Larry Munger, Jim Whiteaker and James Gallagher joined State Sen. Doug LaMalfa in the parking lot of Wal-Mart Yuba City, where they helped load boxes of frozen turkeys into vehicles owned by various non-profit organizations, which will distribute them to needy families.

The turkeys were donated by Golden State Water company, which provided approximately 10,000 frozen turkeys in several Northern California communities as part of its annual “Operation Gobble.”

During Tuesday night’s Board meeting, Chairman Gallagher reported on the turkey giveaway, and encouraged that even more be done to assist.

“I want to remind the public that all these charities are telling us that they are down in donations this year, and the need is even greater,” Mr. Gallagher said. “If you can, I know times are tough, but if you can donate to a food bank or to Toys for Tots this holiday season, I would encourage that.”

Great American Smokeout Encourages Smokers to Quit for Just One Day
November 16, 2011
The Sutter County Tobacco Control Program is observing the 36th Annual Great American Smokeout on November 17, 2011, by encouraging smokers to use that date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking for just one day. By doing so, smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing lung cancer and other chronic diseases.

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet more than 46 million Americans still smoke. However, more than half of these smokers have attempted to quit for at least one day in the past year. The newest U.S. Surgeon General's report states "quitting at any age and at any time is beneficial. It's never too late to quit, but the sooner the better."

Quitting is hard, but you can increase your chances of success with help. The Sutter County Tobacco Control Program is encouraging smokers to stop by the Health Department to pick up a free quit kit that contains a self-help guide, mint toothpicks, air freshener, and other items to help you kick the habit. It also contains a coupon for a free "cold turkey sandwich", compliments of the New Earth Market. Quitting smoking is not easy, but it can be done, cold turkey or by cutting down, for just one day or for longer. For more information about quitting and help, call 1-800-NO-BUTTS or stop by the Sutter County Health Department, 1445 Veterans Memorial Circle, Yuba City, and pick up a quit kit today.

New Agency Would Govern Animal Services In Sutter County
November 14, 2011
The Sutter County Board of Supervisors approved the creation of the Sutter Animal Services Authority on Nov. 8. The Board signed a proposed Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement (JPA) and appointed two County supervisors to sit on the new agency’s Board of Directors.

If the cities of Live Oak and Yuba City approve the JPA, the Sutter Animal Services Authority (SASA) would become the new governing authority for animal control services throughout Sutter County.

The County of Sutter will continue as the lead agency providing animal control services until a new animal shelter is constructed. When the new shelter is completed, the City of Yuba City will become the lead agency as well as the employing agency for animal control services personnel.

Decisions about the level and nature of animal care services will become the responsibility of the SASA Board of Directors, which will be comprised of two Sutter County Supervisors, two members of the Yuba City Council, and two members of the Live Oak City Council.

Second District Supervisor Stanley Cleveland Jr. and Third District Supervisor Larry Munger were appointed to the SASA Board of Directors for Sutter County.

The City of Yuba City will consider the JPA and board appointees on Nov. 15. The City of Live Oak will consider the JPA and board appointees on Nov. 16.
