   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

Big Rig accident west of Quincy; traffic affected

Feather Publishing

An overturned big rig has partially blocked the route from Quincy down the Feather River Canyon. Initially both lanes were blocked but as of 3:30 Cal Trans reports that one lane is open with controlled traffic.  The crash reportedly spilled a load of lumber onto the road, and radio traffic indicated about two gallons of diesel fuel has spilled out so far. The crash site is between the Greenville Wye and Spanish Creek Bridge; travel from Greenville down the Canyon towards Oroville will likely be unaffected. Photo submitted
