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

  • New state: Proponents of the state of Jefferson pushed the Plumas County Board of Supervisors to sign a declaration of support Jan. 20, but they didn’t get it.
  • Nursing home to close: Healthcare leaders learned that the skilled nursing hospital in Quincy is slated for closure, which would result in the relocation of more than three dozen patients and the loss of 60 jobs.
  • Program sacked: Judge Ira Kaufman is no longer sentencing people to drug court. He said he was ending the program because clients weren’t being served.

“I think it’s essential that Plumas County’s situation is made known to people at the state and federal level.”

That statement from Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood pretty much sums up the way he sees his role these days.

Portola’s City Council unanimously voted to loan Eastern Plumas Health Care $348,000 to pay off a loan on a 34-acre parcel adjoining the hospital. The low-interest loan will reduce the hospital’s monthly payments, ultimately easing EPHC’s struggle with cash flow.

Although the loan indicates the city’s willingness to help the hospital, there continues to be much discussion about who can or will develop the property and about the property’s value relative to development.
