   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

A Meadow Valley man was killed Tuesday morning after being struck by a tree he was falling.

According to the Plumas County Sheriff, the man was identified as 71-year-old Daniel Beer.

Beer and his wife were reportedly cutting down a tree in Deanes Valley when the accident occurred.

The tree reportedly took an unusual bounce after it hit the ground, striking Beer and causing fatal injuries. Beer was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The Sheriff’s Office sends our thoughts and condolences to the family,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood said. “This is a terribly tragic event.”
