Supervisors recognize several retiring leaders

It was a busy morning of accolades during the Board of Supervisors Dec. 15 meeting as the supervisors feted several retiring county employees including one of their own — Lori Simspon. Board Chairman Kevin Goss presented certificates of appreciation to Simpson as well as County Clerk Recorder Kathy Williams, Plumas County Museum Director Scott Lawson, County Counsel Craig Settlemire and Agricultural Commissioner Tim Gibson.

Plumas County Agriculture Commissioner Tim Gibson is honored with a plaque for his 19 years of service to the county. Gibson said he was stationed at the fairgrounds once while he was fighting a fire with the Forest Service. He happened to look in through a window and quickly realized he was seeing the office of someone employed at the ag office. He remembers saying to himself, “I could work here.” And he made that happen.
