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

  • Not guilty plea: The man charged with first-degree murder in the December, 2014, death of a Greenville woman pleaded not guilty last week.
  • More Jefferson talk: Proponents of the state of Jefferson packed the Board of Supervisors room for the third time April 14, but once again did not walk away with the county’s support.
  • School cuts: The Plumas Unified School District is facing a $3 million budget deficit for the next school year, which will result in funding cuts in many areas.

Strike averted at Collins Pine Mill

  “We are now back to just another day at work with no further action necessary at this time,” Local 3074 representative Mike Wood said Oct. 23.

  The scenario could have been very different had the union members not voted to accept the Collins Pine Company’s last and final proposal presented to them Oct. 22.

First snow in the Almanor Basin


ChessterSnow <
Residents of Lake Almanor Basin awoke this morning to see white flakes of snow falling from the dark cloud-streaked sky, and onto their homes, landscaping, and vehicles, Oct. 22. The first snow of the season has blanketed the town of Chester, and the smell of burning firewood has penetrated the air. Peterson’s Place on Main Street is one area in Chester that exemplifies the homey atmosphere that permeates this town during the fall and winter months. The snow covered rooftops and logs piled high in the bon fire radiate the simplistic beauty living in the mountains can offer.
