Plumas Arts purchased the historic Capitol Club in downtown Quincy at public auction Thursday, Sept. 22, for $70,500.
“We’re thrilled and rightly a bit scared,” said Roxanne Valladao, executive director of the countywide arts organization, likening the acquisition to buying a house.
“I think it’s essential that Plumas County’s situation is made known to people at the state and federal level.”
That statement from Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood pretty much sums up the way he sees his role these days.
Whether it’s sharing ideas with other sheriffs, testifying at congressional hearings or meeting with the governor, Hagwood is spending a lot of time fighting for the county’s causes … outside of the county.
Portola’s City Council unanimously voted to loan Eastern Plumas Health Care $348,000 to pay off a loan on a 34-acre parcel adjoining the hospital. The low-interest loan will reduce the hospital’s monthly payments, ultimately easing EPHC’s struggle with cash flow.
Although the loan indicates the city’s willingness to help the hospital, there continues to be much discussion about who can or will develop the property and about the property’s value relative to development.
The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the 2011-12 county budget during its meeting Tuesday, Sept. 20.
After two months of cuts, concessions, changes and number crunching, the final budget was passed with little discussion by the board or members of the public.
“No standing ovation for that one,” Supervisor Robert Meacher said after the vote.
An attack by a swarm of yellow jackets led to two nights alone in the forest for a Berry Creek woman last week.
Carley Rubanoff, 20, was found by Plumas County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue personnel about 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24.
Rubanoff was rescued just a few hundred yards from where she was last seen the morning of Sept. 22, while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail near Spanish Peak. She spent more than 48 hours alone in the woods.
