   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Local photographer's artwork on display at MacWorld

Feather Publishing

Graeagle resident Michael Clawson creates unique photos using his iPhone. This photo, “On Other Worlds, Deer Roam Free,” was selected for the Macworld/iWorld 2013 Digital Art Gallery. Clawson snapped the image of the deer near the Graeagle Frost-tee, using the High Dynamic Range setting. It allowed him to capture two images, one image for highlights and one image for shadows, and then merge them together for a more dynamic photo. He then imported that photo into an iPhone program called LensLight, which allows for lighting effects and overlays — in this case, an image of Saturn. He made the final adjustments in an iOS program called Snapseed, and voilá, Saturn is looming over Graeagle deer. Clawson will be speaking at Macworld about creative iPhone photo editing Feb. 2 in San Francisco. Photo by Michael Clawson

The snow berms have brought many challenges for the people of Plumas County, but one family in Portola sees them as an opportunity to build the ultimate snowman. On Dec. 26 Kenny Schlegel, of Sloat (left), Makaylah Villarreal, of Portola, and James Lopthien, of Stead (right), built an 11-foot snowman out of the extra snow plowed up by their house on the corner of Pacific and Fourth. The giant Frosty was complete with a scarf made out of Christmas lights and a lit-up torch for a right arm.
