   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

The gray wolf known as OR7 has achieved celebrity status by virtue of being the first confirmed gray wolf in California in several decades. OR7, so named because he was the seventh gray wolf to be given a GPS collar by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, left his pack in the mountains of northeastern Oregon in September 2011 and traveled south through eastern Oregon and the Cascade Mountain Range, eventually crossing into California Dec. 28, 2011, near the town of Dorris in Siskiyou County.
