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.
The victim of the crime was Sierra Cascade Aggregate & Asphalt Products, LLC, a business owned and operated by Caleb and Kacie Holland.
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.”
The annual Almanor Art Show returns Aug. 6 –7, to the Collins Pine Lawn in Chester with booths ranging from wildlife photography and watercolors to hand-thrown pottery and unique jewelry.
The show opens at 10 a.m. both days, closing at 5 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday. Food and drink vendors and live music will be available both days.
Plumas County Environmental Health reported late last week that a domestic cat in eastern Plumas County has been treated for plague. Tests to confirm plague are pending from the public health laboratory in Sacramento.
Although plague naturally occurs throughout the mountainous regions of California, this report is the first sign of plague activity in Plumas County in 2011. Plumas County Environmental Health is working with the California Department of Public Health Vector-Borne Disease program and will be monitoring this situation.
A bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown designed to generate revenue for the state could cost some Plumas County homeowners an extra $150 per year.
Despite objections by lawmakers in rural counties, Brown signed Assembly Bill 29 as part of the state budget deal June 30.
Referred to as the “rural fire tax,” it will impose up to a $150 fire-prevention fee on state residents who live in a state responsibility area (SRA).
