Trouble is as trouble does: I wish I might, I wish I was — Superwoman

I’ve decided to clone myself at the first opportunity. That way I can take turns with myself and work every waking moment, be everywhere and everything people seem to think I should be.

It troubles me when people attack me verbally and in public for what amounts to unfair reasons. But then they are upset enough at the time to believe they know everything they need to know and are in the right.

Creativity requires connection, community

Delaine Fragnoli
Managing Editor


I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity lately. I’ve been going through a bit of a dry spell myself, so I picked up a copy of “Imagine: How Creativity Works” by Jonah Lehrer.

Fraudulent Foreclosure Team
Occupy Quincy

In 2004 there were 13 foreclosures in Plumas County. In 2012 there were 294 foreclosures in Plumas County. Property values and tax revenues are still going down, meaning less money for schools and county services: teachers laid off, one-third of the county employees laid off or gone, no visitors bureau, library hours cut, the list keeps growing. As long as foreclosures continue all these things will get worse and our local economy will continue to suffer: restaurants and stores will close and more people will have to move away to get jobs.
