75 YEARS AGO........1936

25 YEARS AGO......1986

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors this week set the salary of the Plumas County Fair manager at $30,888 per year.

10 YEARS AGO.....2001

It was a record year for Plumas County real estate in 2000 with more than $130 million in sales but local realtors fear the year 2001 may not be as profitable because there is not much available to sell. Sales figures show that the Chester-Lake Almanor area led in sales totaling more than $77 million followed by the Graeagle area totaling $21 million in sales. The Quincy area logged $10 million in sales while Indian Valley recorded $6.3 million in sales.
