   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

Almanor Basin blanketed in smoke

Feather Publishing
5/3/2011

At 5:37 p.m., May 3, Chester Fire Assistant Fire Chief Nick Dawson said, "The Susanville Inter-Agency Fire Center reports that the smoke inundating the Lake Almanor Basin is from a 300 acre controlled burn in the Hat Creek area." The north winds are bringing the smoke directly over the mountains and coating the Lake Almanor Basin. Visibility becomes challenged from approximately 2 miles east of Plumas County Road A-13 and through the community of Chester. The smoke is the densest in the back bay of Lake Almanor near the Last Chance Campground.
