   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Deputy shooting fallout: The children of a Portola man who was shot and killed at Eastern Plumas Health Care last year are seeking millions of dollars in damages.
  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.
  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

Going once, going twice, sold — PUSD to auction surplus equipment

  In the market for a desk or a filing cabinet?

  Plumas Unified School District is holding an auction Saturday, Aug. 17, at the school district’s bus barn, which is located at 113 North Mill Creek Road in Quincy.

  The public is invited to view the items beginning at 8 a.m., with the silent auction to follow at 9 a.m. Bidding closes at 10 a.m. and successful bidders have until noon to claim their merchandise.

  Available items include student and teacher desks and chairs, tables, filing cabinets, science kits, textbooks, televisions, projectors, VCRs, file folders and board games.

  There is even a piano and a truck for bidders to consider.

  Terry Oestreich, the school district’s director of human resources, shared details of the auction with the school board Aug. 1, and received their authorization to conduct the auction.

  It’s not a big money maker for the school district. Last year’s event brought in $740, but it’s a way for the district to discard surplus items.

  The event takes place during the weekend of the Plumas Sierra County Fair, so Oestreich hopes that visitors will stop by the auction on their way to the fair.
