Sutter County Administrative Officer Stephanie J. Larsen has informed the Board of Supervisors that she intends to retire effective July 6.
Ms. Larsen, who was appointed to the position in 2010 following the resignation of longtime County CAO Larry Combs, said she is taking retirement to care for her terminally ill father.
“I have enjoyed working with the Board of Supervisors, my staff, Department Heads, and community members for the betterment of Sutter County,” Ms. Larsen said. “However, the time has come when my role as a daughter and caregiver needs to take precedence over my duties as County Administrative Officer.”

The new exhibit at Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County will open on Friday evening, May 4, 2012 with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Baseball Memories features the unique collection of a Sutter County resident. Upon his birth, his grandfather who was an avid baseball fan, wrote to many of the major baseball players of the 1930s and asked for their autographs as a gift for the new baby. Surprisingly, he received back a number of letters and autographs from his baseball heroes. These were carefully saved for the grandson, who is now sharing them with the community in this exhibit. Many of the top players and Hall of Fame recipients are represented in the collection. Admission to the reception is free.
Also included in the exhibit are vintage photographs of local teams dating from the 1880s through the 1950s, along with memorabilia from local players. Celebrate the grand old American pastime with the Museum through August 5th, 2012.
