   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.

The Bucks Lake Snowdrifters snowmobiling group, Bucks Lake Fire Department, Meadow Valley Fire Department and Plumas County Search and Rescue conducted a snow rescue training session Oct. 18 at the Bucks Lake fire station. The four groups spent about four hours learning how to locate those injured, lost or broken down out on backcountry snow trails and how to handle the medical situations that may arise once they are on scene.

Extensive time was spent on how SAR locates incoming calls from cellphones. The training also covered how to treat and package patients for transportation to a helicopter landing zone or to the nearest ambulance.

Staff Writer

If you didn’t know any better, you might think you walked in on an angry game of dodgeball between Plumas National Forest officials and local residents last week in Quincy.

However, it was really a townhall meeting in the Mineral Building on the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds stemming from a 2013 court settlement between the U.S. Forest Service and Snowlands Network, Winter Wildlands Alliance and the Center for Biological Diversity.

Quincy Elementary School held its traditional Fall Festival on Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. Vampires, ghouls and witches played side by side with Ninja Turtles and Marios at a variety of old-fashioned carnival style booths run by parent volunteers, sixth-grade students and Quincy High School S Club members.

Costume-contest entrants were judged by QES teachers with prizes awarded for scariest, funniest and most original costumes. The cake walk, a haunted photo booth, blacklight alley and crafting table helped keep everyone busy. The fifth grade hosted a bake sale while the sixth grade sold a variety of dinner options as a way to earn money for their watershed trips.
