   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Deputy shooting fallout: The children of a Portola man who was shot and killed at Eastern Plumas Health Care last year are seeking millions of dollars in damages.
  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.
  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

‘Mother of All Workdays’ to be held this Saturday at fairgrounds

  This Saturday more than 200 volunteers have signed up to help give the fairgrounds a major spring cleaning.

  From tree pruning and gardening, rock removal and painting, cleaning inside and outside the buildings and barns, there is something for every volunteer to do, fair manager John Steffanic told the board at its March 27 meeting.

  The U.S. Forest Service, contractors, 4-H clubs, school groups, service organizations, locksmiths and fair aficionados from across the county have answered the call for help.

  Volunteers will begin working at 8 a.m. and continue throughout the day. A barbecue lunch will be provided for all volunteer workers.

  Even if you haven’t signed up, Steffanic said, you can show up at the gate between 8 and 11 a.m. and will be put to work.

Fair update

  Plans for the Plumas-Sierra County Fair are moving right along, Steffanic reported.

  Entertainment; vendors; bull-riding; a date night featuring supervisor Jon Kennedy as chef; animal, art and food exhibits; and the iconic carnival will round out the popular event.

  Special days for seniors, kids and pay-what-you-can will be implemented again, as they were last year.

  The fair foundation has sent off its paperwork to become a nonprofit organization, director Thelma Olsen reported. Once the foundation receives its nonprofit status, tax-deductible donations can be accepted. The group will raise funds to support efforts at the fairgrounds.

  For more information, call 283-6272 or go to plumas-sierracountyfair.net.
