About half of the New Day Broadband cable and Internet users in Quincy have been without service since Sunday.
According to a company spokesperson, the outage is due to a transmission line problem. A technician is scheduled to work on the issue Monday afternoon and restore service as soon as possible.
Already this year, CalFire has responded to nearly 300 wildfires that have charred more than 700 acres, reports the agency. As a result, CalFire officials are reminding residents to ensure they are maintaining 100 feet of defensible space, a reminder that comes several months earlier than normal.
A change mandated by the state that was supposed to improve medical care and save money is failing — at least in Plumas County — and Public Health Director Mimi Hall wants to remedy the situation.
The state of California changed the way it administers Medi-Cal in 28 rural counties, but unlike the success the transition enjoyed in urban areas, rural clients are suffering.
Confusing and untimely billings continue to be the No. 1 complaint that hospital board members receive, but that could change soon.
“Our goal is to produce a statement with a balance during the business cycle,” Chief Financial Officer Cindy Crosslin told directors during the Plumas District Hospital board meeting Feb. 6.
Judge says CalFire was corrupt in its lawsuit to recover Moonlight Fire expenses from timber company
A judge ruled last week that CalFire wasn’t truthful in its attempt to sue Sierra Pacific Industries for its alleged role in the 2007 Moonlight Fire.
The judge told the state to pay for its “corrupt and tainted” actions against the timber company.
The state of California was ordered to pay SPI more than $24 million in penalties, legal costs and fees incurred during its defense of the Moonlight Fire lawsuit.
