The Plumas-Sierra County Fair held in Quincy, Calif. starts Wednesday, August 10 and runs through Sunday, August 14, 2011.
Pride in the Past, Faith in the Future….
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fair theme so appropriate! We absolutely have much to be proud of in our Past. Plumas and Sierra counties have always represented the best of a rural, mountain county. Our history is rich with leadership, strength and hospitality. From logging to fishing, mining to golfing, Plumas and Sierra County are truly the gateway to the “high country.”
A routine probation check in Paxton turned into a major marijuana bust last week.
Plumas County sheriff’s deputies arrested Michael John Mondot, 44, of Paxton on multiple drug charges.
Mondot was charged with cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, conspiracy, and violating probation.
Fair parade organizer Nanci Luce announced Thursday that longtime fair volunteers Willo Vieira and Fred Surber will be this year’s parade grand marshals.
Vieira has worked at the fairgrounds in a variety of roles, paid and unpaid. Surber has long been responsible for the beautifully planted flowerbeds and the horticultural and agricultural fair entries each year.
The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment will once again offer a walk down Deer Creek, Aug. 13, one of the last free-running salmon streams in California.
Streams in Northern California use to be so thick with salmon that you could walk across the water and not get your feet wet. While some may have exaggerated how many fish there really were, today there have been huge population declines and — in many cases — a complete loss of salmon in California fresh water streams. The salmon season in the oceans off California and Oregon was canceled in 2008 and 2009 due to the limited number of fish.
The report of a body just off an equestrian section of the Pacific Crest Trail drew personnel from the Forest Service, California Highway Patrol and Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, as well as paramedics from Plumas District Hospital on Thursday, July 28. The victim, Robert Lloyd Stuart, 52, of Belden, rested about 150 feet from Highway 70 on a steep slope. Emergency vehicles were parked in a small pullout about one-half mile west of Belden. Personnel hiked up the hill and eventually brought Stuart down to a waiting ambulance. According to Plumas County Sheriff Sergeant Steve Peay, Stuart likely fell while hiking either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Peay said no foul play was suspected.
