It started with a good Samaritan trying to help a motorist stuck in the snow.

It ended more than two hours later with a man facing multiple felony charges for wrecking three Caltrans snowplows and a California Highway Patrol vehicle.

The incident began during a heavy snowstorm about 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 11, on Highway 36 just east of the Lassen Volcanic National Park entrance.

That’s when the driver of a Caltrans snowplow stopped to help the driver of a truck that had spun out on the highway.

Fire district explains Feather River Inn annexation situation

Feather Publishing
Editor’s note: Following is a letter submitted to Feather Publishing by the Graeagle Fire Protection District board of directors in response to the newspaper’s Nov. 26 story regarding the district’s annexation process with the Feather River Inn development.

A recent article in the Portola Reporter was critical of the Graeagle Fire Protection District (GFPD) Board of Directors regarding the process for annexing the Feather River Inn (FRI) into the GFPD. The article did not provide important details of the annexation process and presented an inaccurate and incomplete history of the FRI annexation process. The GFPD board was not given the opportunity to provide this information for the article; therefore, we are writing this letter to inform the GFPD residents of the facts surrounding the FRI annexation.
