   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

A recently completed forest health project has given a group of Quincy High School students plenty of experience on what it takes to maintain a healthy forest for wildlife and reducing the threat of fire.

With funds from the California Fish and Game Commission and resources donated by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., the Feather River Resource Conservation District coordinated a pilot project with QHS teacher Matt McMorrow’s Natural Resources class to improve the quality of the forest habitat near the school. These lands are part of the Learning Landscapes Program initiated by the Feather River Land Trust, which seeks to provide sustainable access to natural lands within a 10-minute walk from every school in Plumas County.
