The night of Oct. 5 was a historic moment for the Feather River College Equine Program. Former student Nick Dowers walked his horse into the Reno Livestock Events Center for the 2013 National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, and came out a champion.
The Snaffle Bit Futurity is often referred to as the Super Bowl of horse shows, and Dowers proved himself the quarterback of the winning team when he won the futurity finals.
Peter Livingston is the new Plumas County Mental Health Director.
Interim Mental Health Director Peter Livingston is no longer “interim” — the temporary descriptor has been removed from his title.
Livingston, who has worked as a mental health therapist with the Plumas County Mental Health Department for more than a dozen years, was tapped to lead the department following the termination of Mental Health Director Kimball Pier on Sept. 18, and a brief stint by fellow therapist Michael Gunter as the interim chief.

Plumas County could be just one step away from implementing a new general plan update.

At Hawes Farms in Anderson, Lake Almanor Christian School students participate in a Union Army drill. The students learned much from the re-enactors during their Sept. 26 field trip. Photo submitted
Thursday, Sept. 26, was a step back in time for Lake Almanor Christian School fourth- through 12-grade students when they journeyed to the historical Hawes Farms in Anderson.
Since 1863, Hawes Farms has been a nonprofit, family-owned farm, enticing people’s interests to learn more about farming and the history of the area.
Recently, Hawes Farms hosted the RACW, the Re-enactors of the American Civil War. The purpose of their visit was to help the students visualize the warfare of that era.
They taught the students many things about the war and also sparked student interest in learning more about our country.
Furlough Fridays are over, even if county employees don’t want them to be.
The Plumas Board of Supervisors had imposed furloughs to help balance last year’s budget. But with the adoption of the new 2013-14 budget, furloughs weren’t part of the package.
