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

  • 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.

“This is really good news,” said the association’s vice president, Lyn Nafzgar. She said that the association had applied for $35,000 (its annual commitment) and received nearly half of its request. She is hopeful that a similar amount could be awarded next year.
