Sierra Pacific Industries announced last week that it plans to shut down one of its Quincy sawmills for about two weeks, beginning Friday, April 5.
Sierra Pacific spokesman Mark Pawlicki said the short-term curtailment is due to wet weather and not market conditions.

A rather unique and intriguing visitor recently brought his stay in California to an end.
After more than a year of wandering through northern California, presumably in search of a mate and a new territory, a gray wolf known as OR-7 left the Golden State and returned to Oregon on March 13. OR-7 wandered throughout northeastern California but spent most of his time in Plumas and Tehama counties.
Originally from northeastern Oregon’s Imnaha pack, OR-7 was fitted with a radio collar in February 2011 when he was just a pup. The nomadic gray wolf dispersed from his pack in the fall of that year to begin an epic walkabout.
This Saturday more than 200 volunteers have signed up to help give the fairgrounds a major spring cleaning.
From tree pruning and gardening, rock removal and painting, cleaning inside and outside the buildings and barns, there is something for every volunteer to do, fair manager John Steffanic told the board at its March 27 meeting.

Indian Valley residents who spoke out during the March 26 townhall meeting were split in their opinion, six to six, regarding the Indian Valley Community Services District’s proposal to lease its vacant, 5-acre parcel in Greenville for the development of a 3-megawatt biomass power plant.
The special board meeting was held so that community members could provide input on whether or not they think the plant would be a viable option for the small town of Greenville.
Has the Quincy Library Group been a success?
The Pinchot Institute, an independent consulting firm recognized for its expertise in forestry, will answer that question.
