The Feather River College board of directors took a road trip to Portola for its Nov. 21 board meeting. In an effort to promote the college countywide and build better relationships with outlying communities, the board decided to hold some of its meetings off campus.
Following a luncheon with community leaders at the Alpine Grill, the board and FRC administrators toured Portola High School and then held their monthly board meeting in the school library.
FRC environmental studies student Laurie Munroe gave a capstone project presentation to the board. In a PowerPoint presentation, Munroe outlined the findings of the capstone team’s analysis of the college’s sustainability plan.

Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed’s voice cracked as he turned in his courtroom seat and addressed the family of the man he killed more than two years ago.

Moments later, Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman sentenced Wallin-Reed to 84 years in prison for the July 2011 shooting that killed 20-year-old Rory McGuire and wounded two of McGuire’s friends.
The Thursday, Nov. 21, sentencing at the Plumas County courthouse in Quincy included emotional statements from McGuire’s mother and sisters, as well as a statement from Wallin-Reed’s wife, Kerri.
