   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 Unified School District was not able to spend the state-mandated minimum percentage of its budget in the classroom, board president Leslie Edlund announced at the Jan. 15 board meeting.

The state requires each school district to spend at least 55 percent of its budget in the classroom, but PUSD only spent 47.1 percent during the 2013-14 year.

When listening to Quincy’s Colin Dillingham talk about birding, one must pay extra attention. He uses a lot of “fowl” language.

Dillingham just finished breaking a personal record for the number of bird species he has seen in one year. Partly due to a trip to Australia, Dillingham marked 625 species for 2014.

Dillingham arrived back in Quincy last week, energized for another year of birding, the hobby that has taken him to the ends of the world.
