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

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • 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.

A view of one’s own Black Mountain Lookout open for rental

June 16, 2011 – “You’re going alone?” That was the invariable response when I told folks I was headed for a stay at Black Mountain Lookout, recently opened as a recreational rental on the eastern edge of the Plumas National Forest.

Tourism rebounding, spring melt finally on

Chamber Update

By Suzi Brakken, Plumas County Visitors Bureau

Economists say that families are beginning to take trips postponed during the recession, which is boosting tourism revenues in several markets, including California, according to a recent Wall Street Journal report.

Here in Plumas County, hospitality businesses are reporting increases and indeed transient occupancy levels were up a bit in 2010. However, the winter-like spring and snowpack we’ve experienced have delayed road and campground openings — so how this quarter will fare is yet to be determined.

Rancher Susie Pearce explained the increase in real dollars and cents.

June 15, 2011 – Directors of the Indian Valley Health Care District officially declared the hospital and business office parcels as surplus property Monday, June 6, though neither parcel has been officially modified to exclude the helipad they were concerned about keeping.

Instead, the helipad will remain a negotiating point if and when interested buyers come forward.
