Officers and board members of the Mt. Jura Gem and Museum Society celebrated its 50-year anniversary Sept. 23.
The society is a part of the Indian Valley Museum, which opened 40 years ago in May. Prior to the museum opening, a small group of community members formed the Mt. Jura society. Their first meeting was Aug. 5, 1963, in a Taylorsville church social hall. It wasn’t until Sept. 9, 1963, however, that the group elected officers for the first time. This is the date the club uses as its anniversary.
The Mountain Harvest Festival has always been a very important fundraising event for Plumas Arts. It has also been a place to showcase local art in the music and craft beer varieties. This 10th anniversary event, taking place Oct. 19 at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, keeps up that tradition.
FOCUS Film Festival and Feather River College’s ENACTUS, DSPS and the Diversity Committee invite the community to a film screening of “High Ground.” The showing will be held Thursday, Oct. 10, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy.
Admission is free. (See the movie trailer below)
“High Ground” is a documentary that follows a team of veterans returning from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq as they set out to climb a towering Himalayan peak to overcome challenges and heal the mental and emotional ravages of war.
Nonessential operations have been shut down on the Plumas National Forest due to a lapse in federal appropriations as of Oct. 1.
Most staffers have been furloughed pending reinstatement of funding by Congress. These staffers will not be available by phone or email, and cannot carry out work for the agency until funding is restored. This means that many services will be delayed or interrupted. Activities such as the Fall Fest, scheduled for Oct. 5, were cancelled. All offices are closed.
After several months of effort to build an effective job description for the general manager position, the Chester Public Utility District board of directors have hit a speed bump.
As a member of the general manager/fire chief hiring committee, director Wes Scott presented the job description for action during the special meeting held in late September.
When vice chairman Ben Thompson called for discussion, director Barbara Montandon had much to say.
