Protest at high noon
Protesters and bright neon signs turn Presidents Day in Chester into a colorful day despite the gray skies. While it was obvious many of the participants were objecting to the threat of school closures, a new message, “Recall Harris,” took center stage. Chanting “Save our schools” were individuals of every generation — there to show support for all Plumas County schools, local businesses and healthy communities. The noise impact increased dramatically when those passing by in cars showed support for the protest by honking and waving. While the signs held a variety of messages, two in particular were standouts: “We Stand United Against PUSD” and “Rest in Peace Plumas County — No School — No People — No Business, Recall Harris.” In addition to advocating for more time for the 7-11 committees to form their recommendations, Guy McNett, an Indian Valley senior resident, offered a unique perspective when he said, “My daughter went to school in Indian Valley 25 years ago. We need young families, we don’t want to just look around and see faces our age.” Photo by M. Kate West

One government administration cannot create this problem in 4 yrs. This is from past government issues.We need to educate ourselves before we speak and blam others. Wars=money=deficit. Clinton era no war= no deficit. educate,educate!!!

<br /><br />What does that even mean? The potential closures are purely because of demographics, a result of this area being heavily marketed towards retirees.
The Obama administration is and has been destroying our country

The protester's have it backward. The problem has been coming and is right in front of our faces "no people, no schools" and everything else desireable here where we live. The Obama administration is and has been destroying our country - and the people don't even know it.
<br />Seriously, even.
