According to the Sheriff, Boss was apprehended minutes ago. The emergency notification system was activated this morning for Graeagle, individuals not receiving a call should notify the CAOs office at 283-6315.-->;10:30 UpdateExclusive interview by cell phone with Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood from the scene:
He reports the incident began with a burglary at an unoccupied home in Washoe County. When the burglars realized that law enforcement had surrounded the home, they hot wired a 2009 Ford Shelby Cobra Mustang in the garage and crashed through the garage door, nearly striking law enforcement personnel. Hagwood called the action "desperate' and said it indicated a real "propensity for violence."
Bob Fitzsimmons recently retired as chairman of Quincy Fire Protection District, after a long and dedicated career to Quincy's fire department as a firefighter and commissioner.
For those who haven't lived as long as Fitzsimmons has served with the fire department, it's hard to conceive experiences he's had and the changes he's seen.
The Plumas District Hospital board meeting Aug. 5 was once again dominated by discussion of a possible new hospital building, and the pending Measure B vote.
PDH's Chief Executive Officer John Nadone reported that Monday, Aug. 2, he submitted a full application for a low-interest USDA loan, which the hospital hopes to use to fund its new building.
Quincy High School principal Sue Segura is brainstorming again. A whirlwind of ideas flies around the room. The most recent project to emerge is the Hall of Fame.
The high school has a long and rich history, said Segura. "It's so important that we honor our tradition."
The Plumas District Hospital Measure B election Aug. 31 looms large, overshadowing the November elections in many ways. But there are some key races that warrant a closer look.
The main one is the race for PDH's board, at press time the only contested election. Three hospital board seats are open. Bill Elliott, John Kimmel and Fred Thon currently hold those. Elliott is not running but Kimmel and Thon are.
