The friends and family of 30-year-old Joe Parrish were left devastated after a tree-falling accident claimed his life the morning of Friday, Feb. 21.
The owner of Vintage Gardens just recently took over his father, Don Parrish’s, business after Don’s death in July 2013.
Parrish said in a Profile in Business, published in Feb. 19 Feather River Publishing newspapers, that he was trying to keep the nursery open to honor his father, but he had quickly made the business his own project that he wanted to see thrive.

Student and staff safety is a top priority for the school district, according to Aurora Westwood, program coordinator for Plumas County Office of Education. She gave a presentation to the PCOE/Plumas Unified School District board at its Feb. 13 meeting.
In the district’s ongoing pursuit to find ways to improve existing safety measures, trainings were given to all staff. Additionally, PCOE/PUSD is organizing the second annual Safety Summit, to take place Feb. 26 with a variety of stakeholders.
