Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has scheduled a planned power outage for a portion of Lake Almanor late Saturday, November 23, lasting into early the next morning while crews complete substation improvements. Not all customers on the Lake Almanor Peninsula will be impacted, just those who have previously received individual letters informing them of the outage.
The Portola hospital shooting and the NBC Dateline episode featuring the Wallin-Reed murder trial prompted Supervisor Lori Simpson to approach Sheriff Greg Hagwood about hiring more deputies.
Following their discussion, the pair brought the subject to the Board of Supervisors on Nov. 12.
Chester High School’s football came to an abrupt end Tuesday, Nov. 19.
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) was notified by Chester High School that the team played an ineligible player in its playoff game against Etna on Nov. 15. Chester won the game, 35-20.
Holiday Market, together with C&S Wholesale Grocers has partnered with the Almanor Basin Community Resource Center to help fight hunger in local communities.
In the Chester/Lake Almanor communities, there are more people trying to work than there are jobs. With a few exceptions, most jobs are part- time or temporary and many end during the winter months. Fuel costs are nearly the highest in the nation and food costs run 10 percent to 25 percent higher than most urban areas.
It took three attempts, but the Board of Supervisors ultimately voted Nov. 5 to give $3,000 to the Eastern Plumas Recreation District to spend on the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.
The Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce didn’t fare as well and walked away with nothing after submitting a request for $10,000.
