Plumas County Sheriffs Deputy Tom Froggatt’s actions on June 19 probably saved several lives.

That was the finding of a seven-week investigation into a violent disturbance at the Evergreen Trailer Park in Quincy. The confrontation ended with Froggatt fatally shooting 36-year-old Quincy resident Dennis Jason Majewski.

Magic of Country Living…..

Usually, magic involves pulling things out of something; a rabbit out of a hat or a pigeon out of a box.

When it comes to Plumas and Sierra Counties, the magic draws things in; visitors to our natural beauty or friends and relatives to visit family. Our theme this year was chosen to draw attention to all the magical things that make our community such an appealing magnet!
