That’s precisely what Plumas Rural Services (PRS) is proposing to do with its time bank, Community Connections. The idea is elegant in its simplicity. Today, while you’re still able-bodied, you provide services to others and bank your hours for your own time of need.
As Plumas Arts prepares for the eighth incarnation of its Mountain Harvest Festival fundraiser Saturday, October 15, 2011, organizers are trying to balance the best of the old with the new.
To that end, beer lovers can expect longtime favorites like Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. from Chico and Great Basin Brewing Co. of Reno along with newcomers like Loomis Basin Brewing Co., High Water Brewing from Redding and Feather Falls Casino Brewing Co. Beer makers from as far away as Ireland and Nova Scotia and as close as Blairsden will be pouring samples at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds (map) from 1 to 5 p.m. The gates open at Noon.
PASSAGES wants to remind Medicare beneficiaries that open enrollment to change or enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan known as Part D begins October 15 and ends December 7.

PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno with an update for the power pole replacement at the Spanish Creek Bridge, "PG&E crews have made very good progress and we expect to complete repairs to this line by about 9 p.m. Thursday Oct. 13, and restore power to the 20 customers impacted. We were able to do this work by installing only two new poles. PG&E crews numbering more than a dozen workers installed the new poles and wires."
This should eliminate the need for controlled traffic at the construction site.
