   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.

Beginning farmers seeking land

Feather Publishing

  The new Sierra Intensive Farmer Training program has an eager batch of farmer trainees who will soon be seeking land to farm. The SIFT program is working to connect these farmers with local landowners who are interested in leasing space for food production.

  Ideal plots of land can be as small as one-eighth of an acre, up to 5 acres or more. Access to water and decent sun exposure is essential, and fertile soils are a plus. Land can be flat or on a moderate slope, and even somewhat rocky soils would be considered.
