The Mohawk Community Resource Center is hosting its annual community spaghetti dinner Saturday, Nov. 9. This very popular event is a fundraiser for MCRC and will allow it to continue offering a wide variety of activities to the community. This year the center needs to raise more than $7,500 for its operating costs.
The colorful van winding its way through Plumas County last week took two women a little off the beaten path.
And that’s just the way that Nicole DeJonghe and Brittany Todd wanted it as they made a six-day trek for Sierra Nevada Geotourism, in association with National Geographic.
The women, Sierra Business Council employees, posted photos and bits of information about “off the beaten path” places as they wound their way through the Sierra Nevada.
Day two, Oct. 7, brought them through the Feather River Canyon to the Heart K Ranch and Young’s Market in Taylorsville, Ada’s Place and Carey Candy Co. in Quincy and The Brewing Lair outside of Graeagle.
Local residents had two things on their mind when they called their Plumas County supervisors last week — the federal government closures and the state of Jefferson.
During their Oct. 11 meeting, board members said they received the most calls and emails regarding the closures.
Volunteer firefighters can earn up to $5,000 toward their college education or pay off existing student loans, in exchange for a 2-1/2-year commitment to firefighting.
Jeanne Graham, board chairman for the Eastern Plumas Rural Fire Protection District, learned about the STRIVE Program — State Tuition Reimbursement as Incentive for Volunteer Emergency Responders — and wanted volunteer firefighters throughout the county to know about the opportunity.
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. will soon begin offering a competitive new electric rate aimed at promoting economic development by making it possible for eligible employers to keep, expand or launch new operations in California rather than leave the state.
Plumas County is one area that has been approved for a 30 percent rate reduction. The new rate, recently approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, is designed to benefit all PG&E customers by making more revenues available to cover fixed costs.
