Union Pacific Railroad Co. has agreed to pay more than $17 million for damages and suppression costs related to the 2008 Rich Fire on the Plumas National Forest.
The payment, announced by government officials, settled a federal claim after a Forest Service investigation concluded a crew of railroad workers negligently ignited the fire by cutting and welding rail without using tent shields.
Kathy Williams, Plumas County Clerk/Recorder, reports that her office is getting many calls from people who didn't receive their "Measure B ballot." The reason they didn't receive ballots, however, is that they're not in the Plumas District Hospital area.
Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman recently added $52,000 in restitution to High Desert State Prison Sergeant Todd Posch's sentence.
The funds will be used to compensate the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations for providing security for Posch's family while he alleged a gang was targeting him.
Law enforcement authorities still have not determined if there are any outstanding guns related to the Aug. 12 incident that began as a high-speed chase in Washoe County and ended with a manhunt in Plumas County.
