Delicious delights, lovingly prepared and thoughtfully presented — that pretty much sums up the spirit of the Taste of Plumas, the first and only countywide restaurant tasting. The fifth annual event takes place Saturday, April 9, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds at 5:30 p.m. Seats are still available — but presale ticket discounts end April 1 — no fooling. After April 1 all tickets will be $40.
In 2010, Plumas County’s Relay for Life passed the million dollar mark. Teams raised $80,000 to put the event’s 12-year, cumulative total at $1,027,550.

Plumas Bancorp, the parent company of Plumas Bank, has been given a Consent Order issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the California Department of Financial Institutions.
The bank’s interim president and CEO, Andrew J. Ryback, said this Order was the result of a regulatory examination covering the 12-month period ending June 30, 2010.
County Public Works Director Bob Perreault recently warned the Plumas County Board of Supervisors (BOS) the county’s road system was in a critical window of disrepair where neglecting maintenance could lead to ballooning costs.
In reaction, the board unanimously approved a resolution and letter, both calling for the state Legislature to protect road funding.
Portola City Council met last week between passing storms in a never-ending parade of weather to complete business on a short agenda. But members also found time to discuss ways to increase public participation in and discussion of current city issues.
Mayor Dan Wilson and Mayor Pro Tem Juliana Mark advanced the idea of Saturday morning Coffee Klatches held in rotating locations once per month and found their fellow council members in agreement with their aims.
