    The Plumas County Economic Recovery Committee wants to go on record against your representation of the people of California in your Jan. 4, 2010, appeal of the 2004 Sierra Nevada Framework. The specific appeal was filed with the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in relation to the Eastern District Court’s decision on the 2004 Sierra Nevada Framework.
    PCERC was formed to address the existing and increasing economic impacts associated with natural resource issues within Plumas County. The specific issue deals with the lack of proper vegetative management of our national forests.

Because we’re not Haiti

                  By now we’ve all seen pictures of the horrific conditions in Haiti following a 7.0 earthquake Jan. 12: Entire neighborhoods reduced to rubble, collapsed hospitals, a port and airport that could barely function. While we can’t control natural disasters, we can control our ability to respond to them. It should be an embarrassment to the world community that it has let a nation languish in such poverty that it had absolutely no capacity to deal with a natural disaster that was sure to come sooner or later.

Here to stay: Renewing our commitment

Now that a rather challenging 2009 is behind us, I can’t think of a better time to share a few thoughts about the role and future of community journalism in our society and that of Feather Publishing in your hometown.
Local newspapers are much more than paper and ink. Newspapers pull towns and cities together by connecting people with those around them. Our employees work and live in the communities they cover. They’re your neighbors. They share your values. They understand your community because they’re a part of it.

Perfect Storm turns day of infamy into thanksgiving

By John Sheehan
Executive Director
Plumas Corporation
12/23/2009


    This Pearl Harbor Day was both infamous and wonderful, since I lived through it. Along with a few other Plumas-ites, I’d attended a forestry meeting in Sacramento and was coming home, by myself, through the Canyon on a spectacular winter storm day in Northern California.
    It had already snowed large on Mt. Diablo. The Canyon was a mix of sun and layered clouds and wind and snowgoing on the road. I’d stopped at a familiar spot and was gathering a few river rocks for a home gardening project. The last rock got hefted into the trunk when it happened.
