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

    Train service, interrupted two weeks ago by heavy rain, washed out sections of the Western Pacific maintenance track on the Feather River highway, was resumed Sunday night. Passenger trains are running late, however, due to slow tracks and unusually heavy transfers at each station.

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

    250 were in attendance at the groundbreaking ceremonies held to commemorate the start of the construction of the Antelope dam and reservoir project that is to provide Plumas County with a beautiful lake and picturesque recreation area. Music was provided by the Greenviile High School band and included luminaries California Assemblywoman Pauline Davis, California Governor Edmund Brown and California Congressman Harold T. "Bizz" Johnson.

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

    Ron Horton of Quincy shot and killed a California state record 581 pound black bear. His hounds treed the bear near Smith Lake. Pulling a tooth as part of the bear hunting tag regulation, indicated that the rings in the bear's tooth, known as Old Knuckle Walker, was very old.

10  YEARS AGO.............2002

    A memorial was held for Tina Sharp at Quincy Cemetery this week. Sharp, then 13, was kidnapped and then murdered following the Keddie murders on April 11, 1981. Her remains were found 17 years ago at Feather Falls.
