  As a benefit for the Plumas County Museum, nationally known Cowboy Poet of the Year Larry Maurice will appear Friday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch, 11 miles east of Quincy.

    Maurice has spent the last 20 years as a cowboy, horse wrangler and packer in the Eastern Sierra and the high deserts of Nevada. You’re likely to find him leading a string of mules into the back country, on a horse drive in the Owens Valley of California, or working with longhorn cattle in Virginia City, Nev.

Plumas County voters defeated two local tax measures, while Portola residents selected a new city councilman yesterday.

Kathy Williams, the county’s chief elections official, said that voting and tabulating went smoothly Nov. 6.

“We were the first in the state to report,” she said. Her staff will spend today counting the provisional ballots and the vote-by-mail ballots that were dropped off at polling locations. Final results are expected by the end of the day.

Plumas Unified School District’s newest trustee is the mother of two school-age children, a leading force in Quincy’s 7-11 committee, a five-year president of the elementary school’s parent cooperative, a classroom volunteer and fundraiser. She also works part-time for the Forest Service.

  “Being on the governing board takes a substantial amount of time … how will this time commitment impact your life?”

  That was the 13th and final question asked of Quincy resident Leslie Edlund during a special school board meeting Nov. 1. Edlund was the sole applicant to succeed Betty Moura, whose term on the school board ends this month.
