The crew at Beckwourth Ranger District has been busy with fire in Eastern Plumas County. Many residents of the area might have spotted the billows of smoke coming out of Gold Mountain on A15, and some might have noticed it seep its way into Quincy.
The district has been cleaning up the forest with the natural vacuum that is prescribed burns. The most recent of these burns has been the Mabie Underburn project, which started Nov. 4. Though the smoke from the burn can be a nuisance, the result of the burning operation is meant to be beneficial for all.
What do Herschel Walker and networking have in common? For three Plumas County supervisors, they were highlights of the California State Association of Counties annual conference.
“He was entertaining and right down to earth,” Supervisor Jon Kennedy said of the former NFL running back. “I saw nobody looking down at their phone while he was talking.”
Lassen Volcanic National Park’s Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, with the exception of the vestibule and restrooms, will be closed to the public from Dec. 1 through March 31, 2014, due to ongoing budget concerns.
The Chester Community Chorus and the Lake Almanor Handbell Ensemble will provide concerts this weekend: Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4:30 p.m. The venue, Chester United Methodist Church, is located on Highway 36 at Glenwood Drive in Chester.

Whether you can wield a shovel and dig a hole or grip a pen and write a check — the Johnsville Ski Hill needs your help.
That’s the message the Eastern Plumas Recreation District board of directors wants the community to hear.
After years of planning, the ski hill is tantalizingly close to becoming operational.
Volunteers installed the base terminal for the chair lift Nov. 18 and plan to continue erecting towers until winter weather prohibits further work.
