Last week was a good week for most high school volleyball teams in Plumas County, with three teams improving their records significantly.

Greenville got its first two wins of the season, against Elk Creek and Chester. Portola took down Loyalton and Williams and Quincy beat Champion Christian and Oroville. Chester was the only team without wins, with losses to Greenville, Mercy and Redding Christian.

 

Greenville (2-12)

Greenville started its season a little rough with 12 straight losses. The team mainly played in tournaments or faced larger teams. The losing streak came to an end Oct. 1, however.

Rescued garter snake
    Question: We own a pet store in Northern California and also help to rescue animals and then place them in suitable homes. A client recently asked us to help rescue a 12-year-old garter snake and then adopt it out back to a good home. My questions are, is it even legal for us to possess a garter snake within our shop? Next, if we are able to possess it in our shop, can we charge our standard adoption fees to a new owner for our services in order to help place this snake in a new home?

The Quincy Sled Wars are set to return to the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds on Oct. 12. The annual event was pushed back from its normal summer date due to scheduling conflicts, but is expected to be as big and bad as it is every year.

The event pits snowmobile drivers against each other in a series of drag races. There’s one difference, however: the snowmobiles drag race on the grass. Last year’s races brought around 50 competitors to the fairgrounds.
