Born in 1934?
If so, you and your significant other are invited to attend the annual 1934 Birthday Party Bash at Gansner Park in Quincy Sunday, Aug. 21 at 2 p.m.
Claiming 1934 was a vintage year, the late Bob Melms started this yearly celebration nearly two decades ago and it continues to get bigger and better every year.
The 29th occurrence of Railroad Days, Portola’s big hurrah, is just around the corner. As in years past, traditions like the softball tournament and the horseshoe tournament and the Willie Tate Memorial Run will provide the community with some good-natured competition.
The Lucky Duck Race is returning, where the competition is zanier, but winners end up with real money. And the Mountain Madness Car Show, which has grown every year for the past four or five years, promises to be the biggest yet.
The hard decisions have been made.
After weeks of discussion and weighing alternatives, the Plumas County Board of Supervisors voted to begin laying off county workers.
“I think we have to issue some pink slips today,” Supervisor Robert Meacher said, prior to the board voting unanimously to do so. “We are doing this with the hope that perhaps we can turn it around.”
Participating by telephone Aug. 4, Plumas District Hospital Chief Executive Officer Doug Lafferty briefed hospital directors on the necessity and timeline for implementation of an electronic medical records (EMR) system. Lafferty could not attend the meeting personally because of a prior out-of-town obligation.
The federal government has mandated that hospitals receiving Medicare payments implement EMR. To receive reimbursement, the hospital must meet completion deadlines.
Parents, Booster Club members, teachers and other residents of Indian Valley gathered together for a community meeting moderated by Jonathan Kusel, former trustee with the Plumas Unified School District.
Also leading discussion was Guy McNett, a member of the district-wide facilities advisory group formed by Superintendent Glenn Harris.
