   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.

The man charged with shooting a Susanville resident to death during a car chase won’t have a preliminary hearing until early next year.

Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed agreed to wait until Jan. 19, 2012, for the hearing to allow his defense attorneys more time to review evidence.

Wallin-Reed, 36, of Reno, who has pleaded “not guilty” in the shooting death of 20-year-old Rory McGuire, appeared in Plumas County Superior Court on Friday, Sept. 23.

A pre-trial conference scheduled for that day was continued to Dec. 16 at 11 a.m.

Judge Thomas W. Kelly asked Wallin-Reed if he understood that he had the right to a quicker trial.

“Yes, sir,” Wallin-Reed responded.

Wallin-Reed is charged with murder in the July 2 shooting of McGuire, who died July 4 at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.

McGuire was flown to the medical center after suffering a gunshot wound to the head near Antelope Lake.

Wallin-Reed, who reportedly admitted to the shooting during a 911 call, was arrested July 3. He was charged with murder after McGuire died.

He is being held in the Plumas County Jail on $1 million bail.

Wallin-Reed is accused of firing several rounds from an AR-15 assault rifle at a car driven by McGuire during a late-night car chase. The chase began at Wallin-Reed’s residence along the Janesville grade, about nine miles from Antelope Lake.

Wallin-Reed told 911 dispatchers he chased the fleeing car after the occupants stole solar lights from his property.

About seven miles from where the chase began, McGuire was shot in the head and hand.

Another two of the five men in the car were also hospitalized after being wounded by gunfire. Those two men both survived.
