   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.

Plumas County is almost certain to have a new courthouse in Quincy by 2015.

Almost 100 years ago, this building defined the community at that time. I think this is an opportunity to develop a building that defines how you see yourselves now and for the next 90 years

Graeagle has lost one of its true pioneers with the passing of Harvey West Jr. last week.

West died Tuesday, April 26, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Reno. “He is Graeagle,” said longtime friend Don Clark. “He built this community and its infrastructure with his own money. He built the streets, church, tennis court, golf course — everything that makes this town what it is today.” “It is the loss of a true pioneer and friend,” said Dick Lundy, who enjoyed a longstanding professional and personal relationship with West.

A Yuba City man was charged with murder Saturday after a dead body was discovered in his motor home Friday night in Plumas County.

Ricky Ray Kingsley, 53, was arrested Friday, April 29, about 8:30 p.m. just off Highway 70 in a heavily wooded area at Murphy Creek near Belden.

Kingsley drew the attention of a Forest Service officer who was on routine patrol for the start of the fishing season.

According to Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, Kingsley was "behaving bizarrely" before the officer discovered a freshly dug grave.
