   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.

A forest tour Tuesday, Aug. 10, ended in a hoot, and it wasn't from an owl.

It was a shout of surprised laughter from Quincy Library Group attorney Michael Jackson.

Along for the ride on the tour were Quincy Library Group members, a Sierra Forest Legacy representative, local landowners, Forest Service officers and other forest stakeholders.

Extravaganza headed this way

It will rain in Blairsden the weekend of Aug. 20 -21. It will rain at 8 p.m. Friday evening. It will rain at 4 p.m. Saturday as well and again at 8.

It will flash lightning and thunder will roar. The sound of wind will add to the mix and rain will be heard pelting the roof. There will be a full-scale thunderstorm with all of its drama and majesty, but the storm will be a very local affair, and no one need worry about lightning strikes or wildfire.

10:30 Update
Exclusive interview by cell phone with Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood from the scene:

He reports the incident began with a burglary at an unoccupied home in Washoe County. When the burglars realized that law enforcement had surrounded the home, they hot wired a 2009 Ford Shelby Cobra Mustang in the garage and crashed through the garage door, nearly striking law enforcement personnel. Hagwood called the action "desperate' and said it indicated a real "propensity for violence."
