   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Time to put down the gun; Local investigator retires after 40 years

  On her first day of retirement, Linda Patton enjoyed breakfast in bed and watched the “Today” show — both real treats for this Quincy woman who has spent the past 40 years waking up and going to work for Plumas County, the last 20 as its welfare fraud investigator.

  “I loved my job, but I was just ready,” Patton said of her decision to retire.

  America Recycles Day is next Thursday, Nov. 15, and this is a perfect time to think about your recycling and sustainability habits. Are you incorporating the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra in your daily life? You bet you are, just by reading this newspaper!

  If you toss this paper into a recycling bin when you’re done with it instead of a garbage can, you’re saving trees and landfill space. But by buying the paper in the first place, you’re also providing a market for recycled goods: All Feather Publishing Co. newspapers are printed on paper with 40 percent or more recycled content. This is essential, because without a way to keep recycled materials in the production chain, recycling doesn’t do any good.

Wild turkeys make their fall debut

With shorter days and a chilly nip in the air, we know fall has arrived and winter is not too far off.

As the season changes, so do the habits of wildlife. Bears stock up on calories for winter hibernation, birds migrate to warmer climates and wild turkeys seem to come out in droves.

While these wild game birds may seem harmless and approachable, they can cause problems. Many homeowners can’t resist feeding them. What starts out as innocent fun can become a nuisance if the birds start destroying flower and vegetable gardens, leaving their droppings on patios and decks or roosting on cars where they may scratch the paint.
