The era of film projection is officially over — at least in Plumas County.

The Town Hall Theatre showed its last film on the old projector last weekend and is now preparing to show the first film using its new digital projector Friday night.

Movie studios are switching over to the digital format, no longer producing movies on film. The switch to the new system was necessary to keep the local theatre viable.

Longtime projectionist Barbara Stricker was nostalgic and a bit sad last weekend as she projected her last movie on film onto the screen of the Quincy theatre. Add a comment

How many voting members are in the House of Representatives? Or, try this one — how many changes or amendments are there to the U.S. Constitution?

Know the answers to these? Christopher Nicholson does. The Englishman recently answered 150 similar questions in obtaining his U.S. citizenship.

Nicholson aced the U.S. Citizenship Test and became a true, blue American on Dec. 17, 2014.

Want your “Lassie” to come home?

Then get her licensed, says Portola City Community Service Officer Leah Turner — the top dog when it comes to animal control regulations.

“The importance of having a dog license is to help the city find the dog’s owner if the dog is lost and it will be returned home,” she said. “If it doesn’t have a license, then the dog goes to Quincy animal control and the owner will be cited for not having a license and no proof of rabies (vaccination).”

According to regulation, all dogs over the age of 4 months within city limits must be licensed. Licenses can be purchased at City Hall with a proof of a rabies certificate. If the dog is altered, and the owner has proof, the annual license fee is $10. If not, that price is quadrupled. Add a comment
