  • 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.

In its last funding cycle, the Plumas County Resource Advisory Committee recommended 14 natural resource projects totaling $386,000. Unless the federal Secure Rural Schools legislation is reauthorized, this will be the final set of RAC projects.
