A fire that started on on the Tahoe National Forest near Bullards Bar Reservoir is spreading smoke into Plumas County. Smoke is visible through much of the county and ash is falling in many areas.
As Feather River College gears up for the 2010-11 year, the New Student Orientation Day Friday, Aug. 20, was packed with information, energy and just plain fun.

Union Pacific Railroad Co. has agreed to pay more than $17 million for damages and suppression costs related to the 2008 Rich Fire on the Plumas National Forest.
The payment, announced by government officials, settled a federal claim after a Forest Service investigation concluded a crew of railroad workers negligently ignited the fire by cutting and welding rail without using tent shields.
Kathy Williams, Plumas County Clerk/Recorder, reports that her office is getting many calls from people who didn't receive their "Measure B ballot." The reason they didn't receive ballots, however, is that they're not in the Plumas District Hospital area.
Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman recently added $52,000 in restitution to High Desert State Prison Sergeant Todd Posch's sentence.
The funds will be used to compensate the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations for providing security for Posch's family while he alleged a gang was targeting him.
