Feather River College prepares for emergencies

If Feather River College experienced a natural or manmade disaster, who would declare an emergency? Who would have the authority to cancel classes and send employees home, and who would feed the horses?

  Quick decisions — from broad scope to detailed minutiae — must be made when disaster strikes. It’s not only prudent to protect lives and assets, it’s also the law.

  Donating blood may be one of the most generous acts one human can do for another.

  For many high school students who participated in the Service Club blood drive Nov. 27, it was the first time they could legally donate their lifeblood.

  Quincy High School held one of its thrice-yearly blood drives in its small gym last Tuesday.

  According to Jan McKee, United Blood Services of Reno’s donor recruitment representative, the blood drive surpassed expectations, with 37 students giving blood.

KeddieThe Keddie murders of April 12, 1981, remain an unsolved mystery in Plumas County. Cabin 28 in the former Keddie Resort, seven miles from Quincy, has been torn down, but the notoriety and mystery of the grisly killings remains.

  More than 31 years have passed since the horrific scene that 14-year-old Sheila Sharp stumbled upon when she returned home from a sleep-over at a neighbor’s house and found the brutalized bodies of her mother, brother and his friend bound, stabbed and beaten with a hammer.

  Now a mature adult, Sharp has released her story, titled “How to Survive Your Visit to Earth,” from Free Spirit Books. The book is co-written by Sharp’s husband, Sifu Richard Whittle.
