75 YEARS AGO........1937

Incorporation of Quincy as a city was favored in a resolution adopted by the Quincy Chamber of Commerce this week.

50 YEARS AGO........1962

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors this week accepted the proposed formation of the West Almanor Fire District.

The amount which will be charged patients at the Plumas County Hospital in Quincy will be increased from $12 per day to $18 per day.

25 YEARS AGO..........1987

Today at 10:30 a.m., eastern standard time, President Ronald Reagan will lead the nation in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of Constitution Day, a celebration of the founding father's signing of the document. Feather Publishing has teamed with the Plumas Unified School District to include a copy of the document in all Plumas newspapers this week and another 5,000 copies were printed for Plumas County school students.

As 1988 approaches, retail stores selling soft drinks and beer must prepare to receive a greater quantity of returnable cans and bottles with the new California legislation recently passed, called the “bottle bill.”

10 YEARS AGO............2002

The historic Swiss Mine cabin near Seneca was vandalized again, for the third time. The vandalism was under the jurisdiction of the United States Forest Service, not the Plumas County Sheriff's office so the USFS re-secured the cabin.

The first football game in the history of Feather River College took place Saturday when the Golden Eagles defeated Yuba College 37 - 16.
