   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

The sheriff isn’t giving up on a proposal to build a joint facility with the local California Highway Patrol.

“Just because the initial reply was negative, that doesn’t mean I’m done pursuing something that will benefit the citizens of this county,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood said last week.

The Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl has been a common topic of conversation for Eastern Plumas County citizens over the past few years. For years the mountain has been without the echo of jubilant skiers, and the community has been left without the economic boost the winter activities could bring to the area.

However, that could very soon change. Through the collaborative efforts of the Eastern Plumas Recreation District and Plumas-Eureka State Park, as well as a myriad of other entities, the ski hill could reawaken as soon as next winter.

Yet, the question arises: How will this ski hill operate? What will prevent it from shutting down again like it did in the past?

The board members of the recreation district are prepared to answer those questions.

Four months after the Dec. 15, 2013, fire that destroyed a half-block of downtown Quincy, the corner sits empty and will likely remain that way for a while.

Tommy and Carol Miles, who had been refurbishing the former Great Northern building (one of the two structures destroyed in the fire), hope to have building plans and permits completed within a month, but don’t anticipate construction beginning anytime soon.

Quincy cools off with some ice cream

How cool is Quincy, the town voted the coolest small town in the West? Ice cold. The England-based company Wall’s apparently thinks so, at least. The European ice cream company set a crew up in Quincy on April 11 to film a commercial to be aired online later this month.

The company coordinated with the San Francisco branch of DDB Worldwide Communications Group Inc., a global advertising firm. Some members of the firm saw Quincy on Yahoo late last year, voted as one of the coolest small towns in America, and thought it would be a great location to film.

“It’s such a cute, quaint, small town,” explained DDB’s Danielle Watchman on its choice of location. “We really liked the look of it. We thought it would be a nice fit for what we are going for.”
