PG&E reports two power outages affecting 623 customers in the vicinity of Prattville on the west side of Lake Almanor.

There are reports of minor damage, mostly items knocked off of shelves, from Susanville, to Indian Valley, to Lake Almanor.
An earthquake struck Plumas County at 8:48 p.m. on Thursday evening. The 5.7 quake struck about 11 miles west/northwest of Greenville near Canyon Dam. It was felt as far away as Sacramento, San Francisco, Chico, and Lake Tahoe.
Extreme Rescue Makeover pairs needy horses with talented trainers and loving owners.
These were Cinderella horses: unwanted, unhandledand, for the most part, unpedigreed. Their situations ranged from less than ideal to deplorable; some were days away from slaughter.
On Sunday, May 26, these same horses and the trainers who rehabilitated them will demonstrate what a throwaway horse can do, given the chance. The first place trainer takes home a $5,000 cash prize. The winning horse, and its fellow equine competitors, graduate to forever homes — complete with love, care and very likely lots of carrots.
“In a cooperative effort to provide public service for the boating public and free boat safety inspections and boating safety and invasive species education, the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with a number of agencies to bring Operation Safe Boat to Lake Almanor May 25,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood said May 17.

For many years now, the Plumas County Picnic has been associated with the Sierra Cascade Street Rodders’ show and shine. The 2013 version of the picnic is no different. However, this year will feature a new, and hopefully annual, attraction: the Plumas County Picnic Swap Meet.
