Susanville (PC-1149) was laid down as PC-1149 on 6 November 1943 at Bay City, Mich., by the Defoe Shipbuilding Corp.; launched on 11 January 1944; and commissioned on 22 June 1944.

She sailed, via the Mississippi River and New Orleans, to the Gulf of Mexico and conducted shakedown training out of Miami, Fla. During her first year of service, PC-1149 cruised the waters along the east coast of the United States and in the Caribbean Sea. She patrolled for German U-boats and escorted coastal and Caribbean convoys from port to port. The submarine chaser ranged as far north as New York and as far south as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

On 13 June 1945, about a week before the first anniversary of her active service, she transited the Panama Canal and joined the Pacific Fleet. After stopping at San Diego, Calif., and at Pearl Harbor, she arrived at Eniwetok in the Central Pacific on 28 July; then sailed the following day for the Marianas. She reached Saipan on 1 August and remained there through the end of the war and into September. After a brief voyage to Iwo Jima early that month, PC-1149 returned to the Marianas and operated in that island group for a little more than a year. In November 1946, she returned, via Kwajalein and Pearl Harbor, to the United States, arriving at the Columbia River Reserve Fleet berthing area in Oregon in mid-December. On 20 February 1947, PC-1149 was placed out of commission and berthed at Columbia River.

On 15 February 1956, while still out of commission, she was named Susanville. Sixteen months later, on 16 July 1957, Susanville was transferred, on loan, to the Nationalist Chinese Navy and was commissioned Nsi Kiang. She served the Taiwan Navy until 30 June 1972 when she was transferred to the Taiwan Customs Service.

At A Glance
A Susanville History

By Tim I. Purdy

8x11 207 pages, illustrated, index, hardcover, ISBN: 0938373-22-6, Price $39.95

Susanville has undergone many changes since that fateful summer of 1854 when Isaac Roop and Company built a trading post on the Nobles Emigrant Trail there.

This is a unique evolutionary history of how Susanville has come to be. There were two significant events to have the most profound impact-fire and the railroad. During the latter 1880s, fire was a persistent problem. In 1893, the town's entire business district was leveled by fire. Yet, its residents would endure several more blazes until 1900, when the took the matter under control to form the municipality of Susanville as a means to provide fire protection.

Initially, after the City was created, it struggled to provide services, as it had no operating revenue and Lassen County did not help the situation. By the time the City was functioning, the railroad had arrived in 1913.

In several years, E.V. Spencer's "Sleepy Hollow" as he called the community without a railroad, was transformed into a major lumber manufacturing center with the mills of Lassen Lumber & Box Company and Fruit Growers Supply Company. Years later, two more mills were established the Paul Bunyan Lumber Company and the Susanville Logging Company. In the 1950s, with the decline of the lumber industry eminent, the prison movement was established.

The lumber industry brought prosperity to the region as witnessed by nearly a dozen housing subdivisions surrounding the community, as well as three new schools in three years!

Yet, even before the railroad and the mills, Susanville's business district was going through its own transformation. The City was instrumental in its passage of controversial Ordinance No. 17 in 1902 that prohibited the construction of wooden buildings in the town's business district, as a fire preventive measure.

This and other ordinances did not please certain factions in the City. The 1920s saw the City's first recall election of Trustees Breitwieser and Mathews concerning the paving the streets and cement for sidewalks. There was the underlying issue of gambling that these two men were in favor for as a means to finance City operations. Since the arrival of Prohibition the City lost one-quarter of its revenues from liquor licenses.

While the 1920s roared, the 1930s were far from being dull. One of the pinnacle issues was that of sky high electric rates of the Republic Electric Company. The Lassen County Chamber of Commerce pushed the issue to form a public utility district-Lassen Municipal Utility District. The election for its creation and subsequent operation is a most interesting chapter in the City's history-after all, the City attempted to take over the Republic Electric Company at the same time.

By the time Word War II arrived the issues of Lassen Municipal Utility District had been resolved, only to be replaced with new problems. The crime rate from the construction of the Sierra Army Depot at Herlong, forced the City to finally increase its police department, to three! The City Jail, on the other hand was woefully inadequate. The post was years brought with it a housing boom. This time too, fire placed another pivotal role in the development of the City. Those fires, in 1947, led to a Greater Susanville through numerous annexation efforts and now the City limits extended from Weatherlow Street all the way to Fairfield .

There are several chapters devoted to other aspects of the community. One chapter provides a brief history of the churches and schools. Another examines a variety of recreational aspects as to how the residents amused themselves over the years. And finally a third chapter explores the extremes in weather the area witnessed such as the flood of 1938.

This fact filled volume covers a lot of territory and interspersed is a lot of interesting trivia, such as the City's establishment of a speed limit of eight miles per hour in 1902, though the first automobile did not appear on the City's streets until 1903.

Main Street 1894

Susanville&rsquos first fifty years was on the troublesome side. In the 1860s, just as the town was beginning to flourish, outside events took its toll on the town. Between an economic depression and being bypassed by the Central Pacific Railroad crippled development. The railroad issue would linger on for decades, until finally in 1913, the rails of the Fernley & Lassen Railroad arrived in Susanville and a whole new era of commerce forever changed the community. A boomtown frenzy was created that kept going with the establishment of the lumber mills of the Lassen Lumber & Box Company and the Fruit Growers Supply Company. In the 1950s, witnessed a rapid decline in the lumber industry and thus the movement to establish a prison took hold.

Construction of the Fernley & Lassen Railroad

One of the problems that plagued the town in its early years and would be catalyst for the town to incorporate as a municipality was&mdashfire. However, Isaac N. Roop in his progressive nature did something special for the community he founded. Most people take the wide streets in the old section of town for granted. This was a novelty in frontier California and the West. Gold rush communities were dense due in part of their narrow streets. It was Roop&rsquos belief that wide boulevards, not only enhance the physical layout of the town, but more importantly would work as a fire barrier. Roop&rsquos particularly wide Main Street, for the most part always worked as a so-called fire barrier. In only one instance was the town&rsquos entire business district leveled by fire.

Masonic Building Fire--August 9, 1898

It was the devastating fires of the 1890s that also changed the character of the town. Yet, it was the fire of June 6, 1900, that was the final proverbial straw that led to the incorporation of Susanville. On August 15, 1900, the residents of the proposed new town voted 61 to 20 in favor of incorporation and thus the City of Susanville was born.

There were many struggles for the town in its infancy, especially collecting the lucrative liquor license tax&mdashoriginally the main source of revenue for the town. In 1902, when the City passed Ordinance No. 17 prohibiting the construction of wooden frame buildings in the business district, that action did not sit well with a lot of folks.

These are just a sampling of some of the topics explored in this fascinating volume of Susanville. Take for instance the technology of communications. In 1877, was the first time the town was connected to the outside world via a telegraph line. The first residential telephone services were established in 1904, but long distance service did not arrive until 1911. The first operators, by the way were: Nina Turnbaugh, Lucille Pearce and Eva Lanigar, and their job titles then were &ldquoHello Girls!&rdquo

Susanville names Correctional Officer as Firefighter of the Year

When Correctional Officer Mark Jones isn’t working at High Desert State Prison, he volunteers to fight fires. His dedication to public safety, even while off the job, was recognized March 27, 2021, by the City of Susanville when he was named Firefighter of the Year.

Officer Jones, who began his correctional career in June 2001, answered the call to be of service to his community as a volunteer Susanville firefighter in 2018. Since then, he’s also been certified in wildland firefighting.

Officer Jones, as a Susanville volunteer firefighter, has been deployed to:

  • Zogg Fire, Shasta and Tehama counties, September 2020
  • Sheep Fire, Pumas County, August 2020
  • Hog Fire, Lassen County, July 2020
  • Gomez Fire, Lassen County, May 2019

He has also been called out for numerous middle-of-the-night vehicle extractions and city fires. After his volunteer work, he still reported to work at High Desert State Prison the next morning.

Jones was nominated by the city for his commitment to deploying for wildland fires as well as his involvement in city events and fundraisers.

Situated at 4,186 feet elevation along the Susan River on the northeastern corner of the Sierra Nevada, the city of Susanville has a unique and colorful history, established in the aftermath of an 1863 skirmish called the Sagebrush War. Before the war, the area was known as Rooptown, named after the Isaac Roop, one of thousands of emigrants who camped at the foot of the Sierra Nevada before making the final push to the coast. Rooptown was a popular stopover thanks to its lush grasses and ample water, something emigrants hadn’t seen for hundreds of miles while crossing the Nevada desert.

In 1853, Isaac Roop constructed a cabin that became a trading post, and later, a fortification used during the Sagebrush War. The war was rooted in a boundary dispute about Rooptown and whether it was in Plumas County of California or Roop County in the Nevada Territory. The citizens of the area played both sides against each other, refusing to pay taxes when both territory’s officials would appear to collect, claiming they were residents of the other territory.

“Fort Defiance” Susanville CA

Soon this lack of tax collection came to a head, and after legal wrangling between the two territories could not solve the problem, posses were formed and a gun battle between the two counties ensued, using Roop’s cabin as a stronghold against Plumas County, which became known as Fort Defiance. After four hours of shots fired back and forth with only a few non-lethal casualties, both sides realized this dispute wasn’t worth dying over. To this day, Roop’s cabin stands, bullet holes and all.

As a result, the California/Nevada border was resurveyed from Lake Tahoe to the Oregon border, and the results showed Rooptown in the state of California. To appease the residents who did not want to be annexed into Plumas County, the state legislature created Lassen County in 1864, making the new town of Susanville (named after Susan Roop) the county seat, which it remains to this day.

Susanville had a long stretch of economic health thanks to strong logging, farming and mining economies. But by the 1960s, these industries waned, landing the community in economic hardship. Susanville had the California Correctional Center that opened in 1963, but it wasn’t until the construction of the High Desert State Prison, California in 1995 that the population – and the jobs that came with it – started to skyrocket. The Census shows this growth, with Susanville’s population expanding from 7,279 residents in 1990 to 13,541 in 2000, an 86 percent increase.

The overall economic and social health of Susanville as a “prison town” has been debated by locals for years, but one thing about Susanville is undeniable it is rich with natural beauty and breathtaking terrain, especially in fall with vibrant changing colors on the mountains towering above town. Just as the emigrants found Rooptown an attractive stopover on their overland journey, modern day adventurers will find Susanville an ideal waypoint in the Connected Communities network of trails.

This punch needle works great! The XL size works well with chunkier/“the thickness of a pencil” yarn (I’m not sure what the weight or thickness actually is, I’m new at this haha). It shipped quickly, even though it got lost at my local post office for a few days. Still got to my house in MN from California in about a week which is way better than most punch needle shipping times on Etsy. Seems to be holding up well and is so easy to switch the yarn.

I have mixed feelings about my order I loved everything I received. I ordered 5 items. But I had to order everything separately so for my order of $185.50 I paided $67.99 for shipping. All items gave on same day in different packages so I didn’t understand why they could not be sent together for less postage. For this reason I will not order again even though they have wonderful items so if you order just one item do it.

I shipped and packaged by the best possible way and still be able to ship with out asking for more shipping or canceling the order for the large loom. The large loom put this in a oversize shipping category and the cost was much more than double listed Esty estimate for shipping on the large loom so I did ship in one package to keep with in the shipping cost charged.

I haven't had the chance to sit down and watch this yet, but I really can't wait to find time to myself to watch. This is a skill I really want to learn, but don't know anyone personally that knows how to do soldering. I am hopeful this will be all I need! Thanks!

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The site of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is identified as the place both of the crucifixion and the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. The church has long been a major pilgrimage center for Christians all around the world.

According to the New Testament, Jesus was crucified at Golgotha, “the place of the skull” (Matt. 27:33–35 Mark 15:22–25 John 19:17–24). This has been identified as an area of abandoned stone quarries just outside the city wall of the time.

About 10 years after the crucifixion, a third wall was built that enclosed the area of the execution and burial within the city, and this accounts for the Holy Sepulchre’s location inside the Old City of Jerusalem today.

The Roman emperor Constantine I, a convert to Christianity, had the temple of Venus in Jerusalem demolished to make way for a church. In the course of the demolition a tomb was discovered that was thought to be the tomb of Jesus.

The first Church of the Holy Sepulchre was approached by a flight of steps from the Cardo, the main street of Jerusalem.

Then pilgrims went through a narthex a basilica and an open area, the “holy garden,” which had in it the rock of Golgotha, finally reaching the Holy Sepulchre itself.

The rock-cut tomb was initially open to the elements, but later it was protected by a small building.

The whole complex was richly decorated, as we know from the description by Constantine’s biographer Eusebius of Caesarea, from pictures in the Church of St. Pudenziana in Rome dating from early in the fifth century and on the Madaba mosaic map from the sixth, and from modern excavations.

In 326, Constantine’s mother, Saint Helena, made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, where, according to legend, she discovered the relic of the cross of Jesus (the “True Cross”).

The story of the discovery of the cross was current early in the fifth century, and in the 11th century a cave deep below the ruins of the basilica came to be known as the Chapel of the Invention of the Cross.

In 614, a Persian army destroyed the church and the True Cross was taken away, but in 631 the Byzantine emperor Heraclius negotiated its return.

The Arab conquest in 638 was initially less disruptive, as Christians were treated with tolerance, but 300 years later the entrance to the basilica was converted into a mosque, and in 966 the dome was destroyed by fire during anti-Christian riots.

In 1009, the fanatical Fatimid caliph al-Hakim ordered the destruction of the church.

The Byzantine emperor Constantine IX Monomachus (1042–1055) funded its rebuilding, but on a different plan, with the entrance on the south side.

This was the church that drew pilgrims from all over Christendom in the later 11th century, and for much of that period the Muslim rulers of the city treated them well.

It was only after the capture of the city by the Seljuk Turks in 1077 that rumors began to circulate that Christian pilgrims were being ill treated and denied access to the church.

The liberation of the holy places, the foremost of which was the Holy Sepulchre, was an important motivation for the First Crusade between 1096 and 1099.

After the capture of the city by the crusaders in 1099, eyewitnesses tell how the survivors of the expedition prayed in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which struck them as unusual because it was open to the sky.

During the next half-century, the church of Constantine IX Monomachus was largely reconstructed.

Although the building’s footprint was preserved, the church acquired the attributes of a cathedral on the Western model. The holy garden became the basilica of the crusaders’ church, and the rock of Golgotha was given its own chapel.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was reconsecrated on July 15, 1149, 50 years to the day after the capture of Jerusalem by the First Crusade, but in fact work continued on the building for some years afterward. Nevertheless, the church of the crusaders is essentially the church that is to be seen today.

The crusaders’ church attracted enormous numbers of pilgrims, whose entry and circulation had to be controlled: the twin doorways can still be seen, although the elaborately carved lintels under which the pilgrims passed were removed after the earthquake of 1927 and are now in the Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem.

The right-hand door was blocked up after the Muslim reconquest of the city in 1187. However, even during periods of Muslim occupation, pilgrims continued to be admitted to the site, and indeed Western leaders were anxious to negotiate rights of entry.

Some features of the medieval church can no longer be seen—for example, the tombs of the first rulers, Godfrey of Bouillon and Baldwin I, which were removed in the early 19th century when the Greeks were carrying out restoration work. All of the kings of Jerusalem up to 1187 (except Queen Melisende) were buried in the Calvary Chapel.

As 12th-century maps reveal, the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem was the spiritual focus of Christendom and its most important pilgrimage center. The church was laid out to enable pilgrims to move from chapel to chapel, their visit culminating in the Holy Sepulchre itself.

At Golgotha, to mark the completion of their pilgrimage they would leave the crosses they had carried on the journey, and a great pile of these would be burnt on Easter Eve.

On Holy Saturday, the ceremony of the Holy Fire took place. The patriarch entered the edicule, where the Easter Fire was kindled and then passed from hand to hand. This was witnessed by the chroniclers Ekkehard of Aura in 1101 and Caffaro in 1102.

Despite the mutilations of the centuries, the Holy Sepulchre remains a fascinating complex of structures and is of key importance for several phases of medieval architectural history, ‘imitations’ being built all over Europe. Today, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is one of Jerusalem’s main landmarks and continues to draw many pilgrims and visitors.

Longford really is a great track, the only problem is the collision with objects.
Because with openwheeler like formula ford it's destruction derby!
If you brush against a tyre on the ground or the small hedge of the bridges you go spin round and round!

Removing collision with few objects could greatly improve flow on the track:
-tyre on the ground
-small hedge of the bridges
-some few stakes really near the road
Like Fat Alfie did with Fonteny

And soften collision with wood armco.

Yes that track is not made for modern high speed cars, the corners after long straights are just to tight. And AI really strugles there, especially if more of them come to a corner together. This, in my opinion, can best be enjoyed by the muscle cars of that period. The bazza TransAm pack, or even better since we are in Australia, the Uncle M australian muscle pack. It's an old mod pack now, but these cars are still very nice drive:

And for the track, new AI lines were made by the master LiquidSkyMan. These help with the carnage, but still if cars are too fast, it will not end well:

Has anybody tried the atcc cars yet? Just do! They a f. incredible. Similar handling wise to Kunos dtm E30, dtm e190, the new rs500 dtm, the mitshubishi starion race and the alfa 75 turbo dtm from ACR. But yet they are not copy paste cars of these on diferent bodies (altough they borrowed some stuff from them for sure). I especially like the Volvo with it's springy suspension and heavy robust body that makes you work hard in slow corners. But when you get some speed into it, it turns into a proper agile sports car (for that time period of course). I actually drove one 20 years ago (a modified street version for local races), and this is exactly how i remember it felt.

Little BOP will be needed (not much) and this will be fun racing for a long time.

Susanville PC-1149 - History

Our History.

Respondent Parents’ Counsel (RPC) in dependency and neglect cases (also known as “child welfare” or “child protection” cases) play a critical role in protecting the constitutional and other legal rights of parents, preserving family relationships, and providing complete, accurate, and balanced information to courts. In recognition of this critical role, the Colorado Children’s Code affords parents who are respondents in a dependency and neglect case the right to counsel. § 19-3-202(1) , C.R.S. 2014. The Children’s Code also affords indigent respondent parents appointment of counsel at state expense. § 19-3-202(1). Respondent Parents Counsel formerly operated under Chief Justice Directive 04-05.

Efforts were made over the past decade to support and enhance the quality of parent representation in dependency and neglect cases. Former Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey convened an RPC Task Force in 2005 to assess training, compensation, practice standards, and models of representation for RPC and make recommendations to the Colorado Supreme Court and members of the General Assembly.

In 2005, the Colorado Supreme Court through the Colorado Court Improvement Program created the Respondent Parents’ Counsel Task Force, a group of child welfare professionals, to review the issues facing respondent parents’ counsel and to make recommendations to the Supreme Court and the Colorado Legislature. This RPC Task Force commissioned the National Center for State Courts, the National Association of Counsel for Children, and the National Council for Juvenile and Family Court Judges to perform a needs assessment of respondent parent representation in Colorado.

To assist in identifying needs of attorneys, areas in need of improvement and baseline data for potential reform efforts, the Task Force commissioned a needs assessment. This assessment, performed by the National Center for State Courts, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges and the National Association of Counsel for Children, provides both a statewide overview of factors impacting Respondent Parents’ Counsel performance as well as an in-depth analysis of four counties: Denver County, El Paso County, Teller County and Weld County. Final Reports of this Needs Assessment and RPC Task Force were published in 2007 .

Although some of the recommendations were implemented, many challenges faced by RPC, along with barriers to effective representation identified in these reports, remained.

In 2012-2013, Judges David Furman and Daniel M. Taubman had extensive meetings with employees of the State Court Administrator’s Office and court personnel to address RPCs’ continuing challenges and to offer suggestions for improving the quality of RPC appellate advocacy. These meetings led to a request for the General Assembly to fund a Respondent Parents’ Counsel Coordinator position in the State Court Administrator’s Office. The General Assembly did so, and in 2013, this position was fully funded and a coordinator hired. These meetings also led to two state-wide training conferences for respondent parent appellate attorneys. During these meetings, a suggestion circulated that a Work Group be established to further analyze RPC representation in Colorado.

State Court Administrator Gerald Marroney established the Respondent Parents’ Counsel Work Group in 2014 to analyze the current RPC program and recommend improvements. He charged the Work Group with issuing recommendations on the development of policies and procedures to address the following:

  • Contract and evaluation processes
  • Training requirements
  • A complaint process
  • Billing procedures

He also charged the Work Group with evaluating the appellate process and making recommendations for improving the quality of appellate advocacy. Finally, he instructed the Work Group to analyze potential centralization of RPC administration.

While the Work Group developed its recommendations, the General Assembly took a significant step toward enhancing RPC representation through new legislation, which created the Office of the Respondent Parents’ Counsel (ORPC). This legislation gave the Work Group the responsibility of recommending an operational structure for the ORPC by September 30, 2014. See § 13-92-101(3), C.R.S. 2014. In response to this legislation, the Work Group shifted its primary focus from analysis of the current RPC practice to analyzing various agency operational structures in this state together with parent representation models across the country. The intent of this shift was to make recommendations for an operational structure best suited to resolve the ongoing concerns and challenges regarding respondent parent representation in Colorado.

On May 29, 2014, Governor Hickenlooper signed SB-14-203 which established the Office of the Respondent Parents’ Counsel effective January 1, 2016. The legislation defers to the RPC Work Group’s final recommendation regarding the operational structure of the Office of the Respondent Parents’ Counsel. The Work Group then shifted its focus to analyzing the various oversight options in order to recommend an operational structure to oversee the RPC program. A public meeting was held on August 14, 2014. The preliminary recommendations of the Work Group were discussed. These recommendations and the results of the statewide surveys were discussed during the meeting.

The final report containing the Work Group’s recommendations was submitted to the State Court Administrator on September 30, 2014.

On April 24, 2015, Governor Hickenlooper signed HB 15-1149 , concerning the respondent parents’ counsel and in connection making and reducing appropriation. This bill established Respondent Parents’ Counsel Governing Commission by July 1, 2015 and transferred state paid respondent parent counsel appointments to ORPC beginning July 1, 2016. The bill expressed the Director’s position and qualifications. The bill moved court appropriation for court-appointed counsel and staff from the State Court Administrator’s Office to the Office of Respondent Parents’ Counsel.

The Office of Respondent Parents’ Counsel drafted Chief Justice Directive 16-02 to guide the appointment, payment, and training of respondent parents counsel, effective July 1, 2016.
