July 31 will mark the end of an era for Feather Publishing and Plumas News. We are proud of the long tradition of being the news source for Plumas County, but it’s now time for us to make yet another change in our operations.
First with our newspapers and more recently with plumasnews.com, we have been the go-to place to learn about what is happening in breaking news, local government, the schools, community organizations, and more. Unfortunately, the pandemic compelled us to cease printing the newspapers in April 2020, but in their absence, we turned to the digital on-line format of pumasnews.com to fill that void. We recognize the importance of breaking news that requires the quick dissemination of information. We also take pride in knowing that Plumas News also established itself as the site to find news that has been researched and verified.
This decision to move on from reporting the news has not been made lightly, but, for a variety of reasons, it’s a necessary migration. It’s our hope that someone will come forward to fill this opportunity to be the next leader in reporting local news. Feather Publishing will continue to produce its monthly magazine High Country Life, as well as the Plumas County Visitors Guide, Dining Guide and other niche publications.
