  Snowshoe enthusiasts and cross-country skiers can now glide along easily through miles of winter wonderland in the Jamison Mine and Johnsville area.

  With the help of Plumas-Eureka State Park’s new snowmobile and grate and a handful of volunteers, the informal trails made with years of use have now been groomed and packed.

  The fresh trails present a smooth and easy foundation for snow pedestrians to enjoy the outdoors and see a side of the mountains normally reserved for the extreme snow devotee.

  The Quincy Volunteer Fire Department responded to 460 emergency calls last year, but now it’s the department’s turn to ask for help.

  Next June, those who reside in the fire protection district will be asked to approve Measure A, a $96 annual parcel tax assessment that will appear on property tax bills for five years.

  The measure is similar to one that was approved by 87 percent of the voters back in 2005. The measure sunset last year, forcing the department to dip into its building and equipment reserve fund to help pay its annual expenses.
