Was Moon’s Restaurant once a brothel, a gambling parlor or a speakeasy? Nevada’s KTVN Channel 2 News reporter Jack Sutton posed those questions during an episode of “Nevada Backroads, A Slice of History,” in a January TV segment.
A film crew came to Quincy in early January and interviewed restaurant owner Lisa Kelly and Plumas County Museum director Scott Lawson about the legendary Moon’s establishment.

Sandy Point lies across the open water, where dozens of waterfowl rest.
Bucks Lake has been a mainstay of recreation and hydropower in Plumas County for about 80 years. Before Bucks Dam was built in 1928, the area was known as Bucks Ranch and was used for grazing cattle and horses.
Prior to its ranching days, Bucks Ranch was part of the Maidu summer hunting and gathering grounds. On the west shore of the lake is an area known as Indian Rocks. Many grinding holes exist on top of the large granite rocks there. Acorns, a staple of the Indians’ diet, were ground into meal inside these holes.
An 11-year veteran California Highway Patrol officer stationed in Lassen County and his wife were arrested on five felony counts of worker's compensation insurance fraud, according to a press release from the office of Sacramento County District Attorney Jan Scully.
