The report of a body just off an equestrian section of the Pacific Crest Trail drew personnel from the Forest Service, California Highway Patrol and Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, as well as paramedics from Plumas District Hospital on Thursday, July 28. The victim, Robert Lloyd Stuart, 52, of Belden, rested about 150 feet from Highway 70 on a steep slope. Emergency vehicles were parked in a small pullout about one-half mile west of Belden. Personnel hiked up the hill and eventually brought Stuart down to a waiting ambulance. According to Plumas County Sheriff Sergeant Steve Peay, Stuart likely fell while hiking either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Peay said no foul play was suspected.
Jack Brown stared across the table and gave the California Highway Patrol a piece of his mind.
“People in Plumas County are afraid of the highway patrol. They’re scared to death of you,” the Quincy businessman said. “They are afraid to go out to dinner. They are afraid to have a glass of wine. There’s un-called-for stops.”
Brown’s criticism summarized the sentiment of many community leaders who gathered in Quincy for a July 15 meeting with CHP Commander Bruce Carpenter and his boss Todd Chadd.
The two-hour session, conducted by State Assemblyman Dan Logue, took the local CHP to task over the way it has been doing business.
While Greenville businessman and inventor Ken Donnell travels the world in search of ways to manufacture his new miniature microphone, he is also searching for ways to create jobs here at home.
Such is the goal of his newest venture, which includes having two Chinese men, John Luo and Kobe Wang, live with him for a few weeks as apprentices in the guitar building and restoring trade.
The latest round of vandalism in Chester occurred sometime between Saturday night and Sunday, July 16 – 17, and it packed a devastating punch to the community.
The victim of the crime was Sierra Cascade Aggregate & Asphalt Products, LLC, a business owned and operated by Caleb and Kacie Holland.
