One hundred citizens spoke with one unified voice at the first public forum of the Quincy school closure committee. The message to the so-called 7-11 committee Thursday, Jan. 26, was direct and unanimous: Do not close Quincy Elementary School.
Among the strongest voices was that of Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood. He told the assembly that he planned to build the county’s new jail “a few hundred yards north” of Pioneer Elementary School, the school district’s preferred site for a consolidated K – six campus.
The general consensus at Indian Valley school closure and consolidation committee meetings seems to be that six to eight weeks is not enough time for the task at hand, and that the administration is unreasonable, unreliable and undesirable — or to put in into a simpler term — corrupt.
On Wednesday, Jan. 26, the District Advisory Committee (DAC) for Chester area schools met for the first of its six weekly meetings. The DAC, often called a “7-11” committee due to state legislation requiring a minimum of seven members and a maximum of 11 members, is but one part of the process involved in closing a school.
A lot of you probably have been following the story of this lone male wolf known as Journey or OR7 as he headed down from Oregon to Lassen County. A lot of us would like to get a glimpse of him on his way to wherever he’s going, but nothing prepared my friend Linda Hay and me for what we would encounter while roaming through the Lassen County countryside.
Just after a good snowfall with the weather still cold enough to make it stick, we decided to venture on some side roads to get snow pictures. I have never been to one particular place we decided to go. Looking for anything to take pictures of, we were running out of options fast. Traveling along this partially snow-covered road, we noticed large tracks walking the same direction we were traveling.
