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

  • New state: Proponents of the state of Jefferson pushed the Plumas County Board of Supervisors to sign a declaration of support Jan. 20, but they didn’t get it.
  • Nursing home to close: Healthcare leaders learned that the skilled nursing hospital in Quincy is slated for closure, which would result in the relocation of more than three dozen patients and the loss of 60 jobs.
  • Program sacked: Judge Ira Kaufman is no longer sentencing people to drug court. He said he was ending the program because clients weren’t being served.

Plumas District Hospital recently released an economic impact study it commissioned, at a cost of $5,000, through the Center for Economic Development at California State University–Chico.

The study analyzes the economic impact of the district on the local economy and tries to estimate the economic effects of a hospital closure. It does not, however, look at what might lead to closure or whether passage of Measure B would or could lead to closure.
