Remember When for the week of 8/15/2014

Feather Publishing Historian

75 YEARS AGO.....1939

A second blow was dealt to the Feather River Lumber Company this week. Last week, 6 million feet of dry lumber was destroyed by fire at the company’s plant at Delleker and on Monday of this week, fire broke out in the logging area on Nelson Point Road, damaging 300 acres of standing timber and 600,000 board feet of logs down and ready to haul.

50 YEARS AGO.....1964

The last half of our in-house bound newspaper volumes in our archives for the year 1964 (August through December) is missing and those historical news items are not available to include in the remainder of this year’s 1964 Remember When column.

25 YEARS AGO.....1989

Hannah Kolz of Quincy was named 1989 Sweetheart of the Mountains at the Plumas County Fair Wednesday night. Christina Kleinhans was first runner-up and Crystal Gichun was second runner-up.

The old Greenville Western Pacific train depot will be moved to its new location at the Greenville Community Park in the spring of next year.

10 YEARS AGO.....2004

The Plumas-Sierra County Fair will open a five-day run this week with the theme “The Best Five Days of Summer.”

Plumas County’s new one-stop permit center has been evolving for the past five months in the former Feather Publishing Company brick building in Quincy adjacent to the county courthouse. The Plumas County Board of Supervisors were led on a tour last week to observe the renovations on the building. The first and second floors will be used as offices of the planning department, the engineering department and the assessor’s office but the use of the third floor cupola is undecided as of now.

Note: items included in the weekly Remember When column are taken from our bound newspaper archives and represent writing styles of that particular period. The spelling and grammar are not edited, so the copy is presented as it actually appeared in the original newspaper.
