Over the last few weeks we have had to cover a spate of racially tinged controversies. A former coach, an African American, has sued Feather River College, alleging racial discrimination; another coach, a Native American, is on the verge of suing Plumas Unified School District, also for racial discrimination; and the district's business director is under attack for the racist slogans on the truck she sometimes drives to work.
We made this challenge last year and with the fatigued economy continuing, it’s worth making again.
If each of our newspaper readers spent $100 shopping at home this holiday season, it would pump more than $1.8 million into Plumas County’s economy. (That’s based on a conservative average of just two readers per newspaper.)
