Cal Fire had been scheduled to begin property inspections last week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand their purpose.
“We are not asking anyone to clear cut,” said Rich Martinez, of Cal Fire. “We just want to assess the house to ensure that it’s defensible in case of a fire.”
With the demand for services for the criminal defendant population growing dramatically due to the impact of Assembly Bill 109, District Attorney David Hollister asked the Board of Supervisors for authorization to reorganize the alternative sentencing program.
The program had been developed in 2012 with an anticipated average of 25 participants.

The fire of Dec. 15, 2013, will go down in history as one of Quincy’s latter-day tragedies. Thankfully, no lives were lost and although four businesses were totally destroyed, several have now reopened or relocated.
Friday, April 4, was the grand reopening celebration at the Main Street Artists Gallery. With the smell of varnish still in the air, a crowd of more than a hundred artists and supporters gathered to celebrate the successful restoration and reopening of the artists’ cooperative.
Formed in 2009, the Main Street Artists Gallery was a joint effort of local artists and art patrons who desired a venue to present high quality professional art to the public as well as to provide a location for public events.
Music festival season begins soon and the Board of Supervisors approved the first two requests, both from Belden Town.
During their April 8 meeting the supervisors heard details about “Emissions,” to be held May 16 – 18, and “Raindance,” scheduled for June 6 – 9.
Belden resident Darrel Smith, who is not enamored with the local music festivals because of fire and public safety issues, voiced his opposition via letter.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife hopes to preserve yellow-legged frog critical habitat by removing the brook trout from Gold Lake in the Bucks Lake Wilderness Area.
Which came first, the fish or the frog?
In the case of a Plumas County lake, the state says the water belongs to the native frogs. The fish will have to go.
The state’s plan caught the local Fish and Game Commission by surprise earlier this month. And the local board wasn’t happy about it.
The commission’s board members voted unanimously to oppose the California Department of Fish and Wildlife plan designed to protect critical habitat for the mountain yellow-legged frog.
