On Tuesday, Feb. 7, the District Advisory Committee for Chester area schools, also called the “7-11” committee, met for the third of its six weekly meetings. This meeting, however, almost didn’t happen.

According the Traci Holt, chairwoman for the Chester Area 7-11 Committee, the problem stemmed from the requirement in the Brown Act that notification of public meetings be posted 72 hours prior to the actual meeting in a freely accessible place, and on the school district’s website. As the committee is part of Plumas Unified School District, in order for the meeting to have met this requirement, the district would have needed to post the agenda on its website the day it received it, Friday, Feb. 3, because the district is not staffed on the weekends.

BELDEN — A 16-year-old girl escaped possible drowning Sunday afternoon by getting out through the trunk of her Ford Mustang as it sank in about 10 feet of frigid water in the Feather River, just east of Chip’s Creek.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the girl was driving west on Highway 70 about 3:30 p.m. when a deer suddenly appeared in front of her. As she swerved toward a muddy shoulder, the deer moved into her path, and the impact shattered the windshield. The car then flew down an embankment and slid into the river, floating out about 40 feet before it quickly began to sink, nose first.
