Back in 1968, Congress passed the National Trails System Act and designated the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail as the first two national scenic trails.
The PCT Association’s Northern Sierra regional representative, Justin Kooyman, said the intent of Congress was to secure long-distance trails with superior scenery for users to enjoy.
With the Department of Water Resources renegotiating with its 27 state water contractors, the topic will be included routinely on the Board of Supervisors agenda.
The Plumas County Flood Control District is one of the water contractors.
A Chilcoot man said he shot 14 pack rats because of a neighbor’s trash-heaped property, and offered to clean up the mess himself if the county would provide a Dumpster.

Greenville logger Randy Pew wants to remove biomass from the forest, build a profitable business and provide a valuable commodity.
He shared his plan with the Quincy Library Group on April 25, and so impressed Supervisor Lori Simpson, who was in attendance, that she invited him to the Board of Supervisors’ May 7 meeting.
“You’re a man of resilience,” Simpson told Pew during the supervisors’ meeting. “You’re not whining. It shows what kind of character you have.”
The murder of five people in Fernley and Mustang Nevada Monday, May 13 touches Lassen County.
Two of the victims are former Lassen County residents — Les Leiber, 69, the former general manager of the Lassen Municipal Utility District and Angie Duff, 67. Also killed were Robert Pape 84, his wife Dorothy Pape, 84, and Eliazar Graham, 52.
Jeremiah Bean, 25, is in custody and could face charges including open murder with a deadly weapon, arson, burglary, robbery, ex-felon in possession with a firearm, and grand larceny.
