BELDEN — A 16-year-old girl escaped possible drowning Sunday afternoon by getting out through the trunk of her Ford Mustang as it sank in about 10 feet of frigid water in the Feather River, just east of Chip’s Creek.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the girl was driving west on Highway 70 about 3:30 p.m. when a deer suddenly appeared in front of her. As she swerved toward a muddy shoulder, the deer moved into her path, and the impact shattered the windshield. The car then flew down an embankment and slid into the river, floating out about 40 feet before it quickly began to sink, nose first.

Will Plumas Unified School District trustees allow charter schools on their campuses, if it means a high-quality education with more options for students?

Indian Valley School Closure and Consolidation Committee members have been exploring different school models, and the most attractive seems to be combining the traditional, charter and academy programs.
