Plumas County leaders want to have a say about the fate of the county’s schools.

The school district has outlined its recommendations for school closures and faculty layoffs for the 2012-13 academic year.
As you drive through Hamilton Branch you may notice an odd looking yellow vehicle parked in front of the Hamilton Branch Community Services District office. This is the district’s new amphibious vehicle, an Argo 6x6 650 HD. It should make servicing the community’s spring during the winter much easier than it has been in the past.

The new Almanor Recreation Center (ARC) in Chester has, from its early beginnings, received tremendous community support — support that continues to grow with each passing day.
The first big step in this collaboration began with the efforts of Gini Natali to form an unfunded recreation district in the Lake Almanor Basin. A diamond of the first water when it came to community advocacy, Natali had learned of the potential of funding that would come to every recognized recreational district in the state of California.
Controversial watershed restoration projects will be explained to the public Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m., in the clubroom at the Indian Valley Museum in Taylorsville.
