The sheriff isn’t giving up on a proposal to build a joint facility with the local California Highway Patrol.
“Just because the initial reply was negative, that doesn’t mean I’m done pursuing something that will benefit the citizens of this county,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood said last week.

The Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl has been a common topic of conversation for Eastern Plumas County citizens over the past few years. For years the mountain has been without the echo of jubilant skiers, and the community has been left without the economic boost the winter activities could bring to the area.
However, that could very soon change. Through the collaborative efforts of the Eastern Plumas Recreation District and Plumas-Eureka State Park, as well as a myriad of other entities, the ski hill could reawaken as soon as next winter.
Yet, the question arises: How will this ski hill operate? What will prevent it from shutting down again like it did in the past?
The board members of the recreation district are prepared to answer those questions.
Four months after the Dec. 15, 2013, fire that destroyed a half-block of downtown Quincy, the corner sits empty and will likely remain that way for a while.
Tommy and Carol Miles, who had been refurbishing the former Great Northern building (one of the two structures destroyed in the fire), hope to have building plans and permits completed within a month, but don’t anticipate construction beginning anytime soon.
Three family members of a Portola man who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy last year have filed a wrongful death claim against Plumas County.
Mariano Joseph Mauro, Jr., Anthony Joseph Mariano Mauro and Angelena Mauro are each seeking $2 million in damages for the death of their father, Mariano Joseph Mauro.
Jon Kennedy, chairman of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, announced Monday that he is bowing out of the June election and will not seek a second term.
“I love this job; I love the problem solving,” Kennedy said, “but I can’t continue to put the needs of the county before those of my family.”
