It was a surprising afternoon for a visiting fireman and his family when a dive into a clear mountain pool in the Chester Flood Control Channel resulted in the find of two homemade pipe bombs.

“He was swimming and sees two pipe-like bombs, something he is familiar with,” Plumas County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) Acting Sgt. Ian James said July 22. “He knows what a pipe bomb is, the construction of a pipe bomb and the damage it can cause — he’s seen it all in the past.”

A bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown designed to generate revenue for the state could cost some Plumas County homeowners an extra $150 per year.

Despite objections by lawmakers in rural counties, Brown signed Assembly Bill 29 as part of the state budget deal June 30.

Referred to as the “rural fire tax,” it will impose up to a $150 fire-prevention fee on state residents who live in a state responsibility area (SRA).
