Graeagle has lost one of its true pioneers with the passing of Harvey West Jr. last week.
West died Tuesday, April 26, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Reno. “He is Graeagle,” said longtime friend Don Clark. “He built this community and its infrastructure with his own money. He built the streets, church, tennis court, golf course — everything that makes this town what it is today.” “It is the loss of a true pioneer and friend,” said Dick Lundy, who enjoyed a longstanding professional and personal relationship with West.
A Quincy man has been arrested in connection with a string of break-in thefts from parked cars in the greater Quincy area over the past several weeks.
Victor Rugh, 20, of Quincy, was arrested Wednesday, April 27.
Plumas County Sheriff’s Investigator Bill Elliott said Rugh was one of four people involved in the crimes.
Two people are high school-age minors. The other adult was charged with a misdemeanor.
Elliott said the sheriff’s office uncovered quite a large cache of stolen items.
“We need folks to come forward and help us identify their property,” Elliott said.

Ricky Ray Kingsley, 53, was arrested Friday, April 29, about 8:30 p.m. just off Highway 70 in a heavily wooded area at Murphy Creek near Belden.
Kingsley drew the attention of a Forest Service officer who was on routine patrol for the start of the fishing season.
According to Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, Kingsley was "behaving bizarrely" before the officer discovered a freshly dug grave.

A $13.7 million federal grant and another $1.7 million from the state of California will finance new telecommunications infrastructure in Plumas, Sierra and Lassen counties — infrastructure that will bring rural areas into sync with more populated areas.
The grants were awarded to Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC), a Portola-based electric cooperative with a long history of working to improve the quality of life in the community.
