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.
The Plumas County sheriff’s deputy who shot and killed a hospital patient after a violent struggle acted in self-defense and the defense of others.
That was the finding of an investigation conducted by the Plumas County District Attorney’s Office.
The supervisors and audience members were not alone during the Plumas County Board of Supervisors’ Feb. 4 meeting. A tiny camera mounted at the back of the room filmed the day’s proceedings and beamed it live within the courthouse. Soon residents across the county will be able to view the meeting from their homes or offices — actually, from anywhere they can access Internet.
The Plumas County Public Works Department plans to undertake $38.5 million worth of road and bridge projects through 2019.
Public Works Director Bob Perreault presented a list of projects during the Board of Supervisors’ meeting Feb. 4.
In addition to the county projects, state and federal projects are also planned totaling $36.7 million.
Feather River Inn project still alive
The Feather River Inn, built in 1915, boasts a history as a mountain retreat for the wealthy and elite. The historical three-story building has been passed from owner to owner, and currently belongs to Mike Schoff, the former owner of the Schomac Group Inc., who plans on renovating the resort.

Along Highway 70, west of Graeagle, lies a sleepy-looking European-style chalet. The grand historic building is nestled beyond a small executive golf course and a few unfinished cottages.
It looks out of place and unresolved under the cover of the tall pines, and it leaves passersby with a lingering question — what is happening with the Feather River Inn?
