Jack Brown stared across the table and gave the California Highway Patrol a piece of his mind.
“People in Plumas County are afraid of the highway patrol. They’re scared to death of you,” the Quincy businessman said. “They are afraid to go out to dinner. They are afraid to have a glass of wine. There’s un-called-for stops.”
Brown’s criticism summarized the sentiment of many community leaders who gathered in Quincy for a July 15 meeting with CHP Commander Bruce Carpenter and his boss Todd Chadd.
The two-hour session, conducted by State Assemblyman Dan Logue, took the local CHP to task over the way it has been doing business.
While Greenville businessman and inventor Ken Donnell travels the world in search of ways to manufacture his new miniature microphone, he is also searching for ways to create jobs here at home.
Such is the goal of his newest venture, which includes having two Chinese men, John Luo and Kobe Wang, live with him for a few weeks as apprentices in the guitar building and restoring trade.
The latest round of vandalism in Chester occurred sometime between Saturday night and Sunday, July 16 – 17, and it packed a devastating punch to the community.

It was a surprising afternoon for a visiting fireman and his family when a dive into a clear mountain pool in the Chester Flood Control Channel resulted in the find of two homemade pipe bombs.
“He was swimming and sees two pipe-like bombs, something he is familiar with,” Plumas County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) Acting Sgt. Ian James said July 22. “He knows what a pipe bomb is, the construction of a pipe bomb and the damage it can cause — he’s seen it all in the past.”
