Fair Winds Reiki & Mindfulness

Fair Winds Reiki & Mindfulness will be offering Traditional Reiki Training – Level 1, in a six-hour course that explores the first level of Traditional Usui Reiki, a Japanese healing art that owner Laureen Jordan says benefits the whole person: body, mind, and soul.

“Reiki is known to reduce the stress response while bringing about relaxation and promoting deep healing and general well-being,” explains Jordan who adds that upon completion of the course, students will be able to tap into Reiki energy for self-care and share it with others.

The training includes discussions on the history and uses of Reiki, a ‘Reiki attunement,’ and practical experience using the wellness technique. The textbook and Level I Reiki certificate are included.

“Traditional Usui Reiki does not require additional training or upgrades to maintain your Level I certification. Complete one afternoon of training and use Reiki for self-care and to support loved ones for a lifetime.”

Training will be held this Saturday, April 20th, at 120 S. Gay Street, from 9:30a.m. until 4:30p.m. The cost is $175 ($165 if booked in advance online at under Events/Classes).

Register online or by email to on or before Friday, April 19th.

Space is limited to five students. Former students are welcome to audit the class for free.

Celebrate the Folks Who Keep the Power On: Lineworker Appreciation Day

The next time you see an Lassen Municipal Utility District lineworker, thank them for keeping the lights on! Today, April 18th, is being celebrated as National Lineworker Appreciation Day in honor of those brave and hardy souls who venture out into the field, around the clock, in the worst conditions, to make sure the electricity keeps flowing… and up here in the mountains that is a pretty difficult job!

Here are a few facts about lineworkers at our local, publicly owned power company.

  • There are 9 LMUD linemen, including a troubleman.
  • Linemen never rest, we have at least one lineman who responds to calls 24/7.
  • The longest-serving linemen are Sean Norvell and Adam Hull, with 25 years of service each.
  • Both Adam and Sean are linecrew foremen, we have two crews.
  • Linemen must complete a four-year apprenticeship before they become journeymen linemen, several of our crew members started their careers at LMUD as apprentices.
  • Although linemen are known for restoring power, LMUD linecrews also construct new service and maintain over 425 miles of distribution lines and 80 miles of transmission lines in our 1,900 square miles of service territory.
  • Although most line work is done with a bucket truck, linemen still climb! All the LMUD linemen climb poles when necessary.
  • All LMUD linemen are rubber glove certified, meaning they can work on live lines with specially rated rubber gloves.

“In my opinion, we have some of the best in the business,” says LMUD Public Relations Manager Theresa Phillips. “Not only are they excellent at performing their jobs, but they are also committed to the community we serve.”

Phillips points out that many of LMUD’s lineworkers coach youth sports, are involved with local service organizations and much more.
