Plumas Bank customers deposited more than money last month — they brought in jars of peanut butter.

It was part of a month-long campaign to support local food banks and pantries in the communities the bank serves.

The bank undertook a peanut butter drive in advance of the summer months so that food pantries would be stocked with a kid-friendly and nutritious item.

The supervisors were poised to approve permits for three concerts during their June 3 public meeting, but refrained from approving the Priceless concert scheduled for July 4 – 6 in Belden. They were scheduled to discuss the issue again during their June 10 meeting, after giving promoters time to address concerns raised by paramedic Steve Tolen and Ashley Blesse, a registered nurse and emergency services manager for Plumas District Hospital.

Plumas County’s 43.45 percent voter turnout in the June 3 primary is the lowest that local election officials can recall, but it far surpassed the state’s 18.3 percent, which was a historic low.

Kathy Williams, the county’s chief elections official, said she expected a lower turnout than usual, but was surprised at just how few people turned out to vote.

She attributed that to a lack of local contested races, as well as state contests that hadn’t garnered a lot of interest.
