   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Crawdad Festival in Quincy - Free Sunday event, live music

June 17, 2011 – Despite the pancake shortage, this year’s Crawdad Festival at Gansner Park in Quincy, Sunday, June 19, could just fill the void left by cancellation of the Father’s Day Fly-in.

The festival begins at 10 a.m. and runs until about 7:30 p.m.

Quincy Chamber president and Southern Accent co-owner Kent Barrett stressed the emphasis is on family fun, especially with the Slip ’n’ Slide and coloring contest.

Crawfish, crawdads or crayfish — what other food could be featured but the tasty freshwater crustaceans? Southern Accent will offer crawfish plates with corn, potatoes and sausage, chicken sausage gumbo or catfish with hush puppies.

If that doesn’t tempt taste buds, Debbie Dogs and Timatillos Street Tacos will be on hand with alternatives.

Free live music starts about midday with The Fish Tacos, followed by The Funky Gators, and then Tommy Miles will close.

Parking is limited; Barrett encourages festival-goers to either park at the airport or dealership and walk over or bicycle to the park.
