Earlier today I was walking along the freshly refinished Spanish Traverse Trail, admiring the smoothness of the finished trail. It was midmorning and the sun was just starting to get perfect. I walked along in my T-shirt and admired the birds circling above.

I got to the summit I was heading for and breathed in the view of American Valley. I couldn’t hear anything but the sound of the wind rustling through the pines around me.

Thanks to the effort and financial contributions of a local business and the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce, the entire county stands to benefit.

Earlier this month, the chamber joined forces with Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch to take the Plumas County tourism show on the road.

During their two-day stint at the Travel and Adventure Show in Los Angeles, Greenhorn’s Trish Wilburn and the Eastern Plumas chamber’s Audrey Ellis set up a display booth in front of 32,000 potential vacationers. The Plumas ambassadors gave away every brochure and visitors guide that made the trip in the familiar Greenhorn Ranch SUV. Wilburn and Ellis came home with hundreds of contacts and about 11,000 email addresses.

“County needs to hire a CAO, and soon”

That was the headline of a Feather Publishing editorial in November 2012. The paper criticized the board of supervisors for trying to run the day-to-day operations of the county on their own, without the benefit of a professional chief administrative officer.
