12 FRIDAY» JUNE 17, 2022 » THE GRIDLEY HERALD Dahle’s Highway Management Bill Passes on Assembly Floor From the Office of Megan Dahle SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - On May 25, 2022, AB 2514 authored by Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber) passed off of the Assembly Floor with a unanimous bi-parti- san vote. AB 2514 seeks to understand the funding imbalance between rural and urban areas of the state and requests a study be conducted to identify new and creative ways of applying transportation policy to ensure rural roads and highways are properly funded and safe, given the increased use and impact from heavy vehicles in recent years. “Rural roads and highways are often overlooked when it comes to adequate road and highway funding. Especially in a dis- trict as large as mine, rural roads are heavily impacted by chronic wildfires, and the emergency vehicles used to fight fires,” said Dahle. AB 2514 passed the Assembly Transportation Committee with a unani- mous vote in April. After another unanimous vote of support today, it will move on to be heard in the Senate. Assemblywoman Megan Dahle rep- resents the 1st Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes por- tions of Butte and Placer counties, along with Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, and Siskiyou counties.

Unfortunately, Californians are left to bear the brunt of the highest gas prices in U.S. history.” “Sadly, none of this comes as a surprise.” H May Manzanita Students of the Month Manzanita Elementary School News Release GRIDLEY, CA (MPG) - Manzanita Elementary School Students of the Month for the month of May are outstanding learners, do their best and are great role models for our school.

Callan will give a presentation about his latest book and first novel, The Case of the Missing Game Warden, at the Gridley Library on Thursday, June 23, at 7:00 p.m. Callan’s book was recently selected as a “Best First Novel” award finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the largest inter- national awards program for independent publishers and authors. Callan’s book is published by Coffeetown Press of Seattle, an imprint of Epicenter Press. Much of the action in Callan’s lat- est book takes place in and around Gridley. Steven T. Callan grew up in the small Northern California farm town of Orland, where he spent his high-school years playing baseball, basketball, hunting, and fishing. With an insatia- ble interest in wildlife, he never missed an opportunity to ride along on patrol with his father, a California Fish and Game warden. Steve went on to graduate from CSU, Chico, and attended graduate school at CSU, Sacramento. Hired by the California Department of Fish and Game in 1974, he began his career as a game warden near the Colorado River, promoted to patrol lieutenant in the Riverside/ San Bernardino area, and spent the remainder of his thirty-year enforcement career in Shasta County. Callan has also earned numerous awards for his work in wildlife protection. Callan says, “My love of nature is what drives my writing. I include a conserva- tion message in everything I write.” He describes The Case of the Missing Game Warden as “a mystery, an adventure, a love story, a coming-of-age tale, and a celebration of nature.” The novel is already garnering high praise from readers, who tell Callan they are eagerly awaiting the sec- ond novel in his Henry Glance series. Callan’s first two books, both non- fiction and published by Coffeetown Press, earned excellent reviews and cap- tured awards. His debut book, Badges, Bears, and Eagles, was a 2013 “Book of the Year” award final- ist (ForeWord Reviews). His second book, The Game Warden’s Son, was named “Best Outdoor Book of 2016” by the Outdoor Writers Association of California. Gridley Friends of the Library will host the author for a presentation and book signing at the Gridley Library on Thursday, June 23, at 7:00 p.m. The author will also have copies of his other books on hand. Publisher’s Synopsis of The Case of the Missing Game Warden Ve t e r a n N o r t h e r n California game warden Norman Bettis and his wife, Martha, lived an idyllic life in the small Sacramento Valley farm town of Gridley. On the morning of December 13, 1956, Norman kissed Martha on the forehead and drove off to work. He had no way of knowing he was destined to stumble into a rat’s nest of commercial duck poachers and disap- pear–patrol car and all. Three years later, a gifted eleven-year-old named Henry Glance confronts two goose poachers near the Southern California town of Temecula, pre- venting them from leaving before game war- den Ned McCullough arrives. Impressed with the brave young man and his compassion for wild- life, McCullough suggests he become a game war- den when he grows up. He also shares the story of Warden Bettis’s strange disappearance. McCullough’s mournful tale leaves a lasting impres- sion on Henry as he grows up, suffers disappointment, works his way through Chico State College, falls hopelessly in love, and eventually becomes a game warden himself. Unexpectedly, he’s assigned to Warden Bettis’s old patrol district. While conducting a num- ber of classic wildlife investigations and honing his skills, Glance remains obsessed with his prede- cessor’s untimely demise. Unfazed by a mountain of obstacles and deter- mined to succeed where so many others had failed, Henry sets out on an adventure-filled quest to find the missing game warden and solve the thir- teen-year-old mystery of his disappearance H Author Steven T. Callan will give a presentation about his latest book and first novel, The Case of the Missing Game Warden, at the Gridley Library onThursday, June 23, at 7:00 p.m. WE SUPPORT FIRST RESPONDERS
