The Plumas Tale Spinners have developed a family-friendly storytelling event designed to inspire and entice a broader interest in performances of the spoken word and inspiring more folks to become tellers of tales.
Big Creek Road, near Bucks Lake, is now open until snow forces closure for the winter. A slip-out a few years ago caused road realignment away from the top of the bank. The Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract for a retaining wall, drainage improvements and guardrail so the road could be returned to its original alignment. Paving will occur next summer when temperatures allow; currently there is a gravel section over the new drainage pipe. The completed wall is a wire-and-earth wall called a “mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall.” Photo courtesy Plumas County Public Works
The Plumas County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a $150,000 contract with Plumas Corporation, primarily for Visitor’s Bureau services, at a Tuesday, Oct. 12, meeting.
The board approved contracts for $111,495 total with the various county chambers of commerce and a $29,700 agreement with Plumas Arts without incident at a September meeting.
One of the toughest things for small, rural hospitals like those in Plumas County is recruiting and retaining quality physicians.
During Plumas District Hospital’s recent Measure B debate, one of the main arguments the hospital gave for new construction was the need for a facility that would lure potential physicians.
