   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

At an October meeting, Plumas County Public Health Director Mimi Hall told the Board of Supervisors her department automatically enrolls children receiving free lunch at schools in MediCal.

Big Creek Road near Bucks Lake now open

Big Creek Road, near Bucks Lake, is now open until snow forces closure for the winter. A slip-out a few years ago caused road realignment away from the top of the bank. The Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract for a retaining wall, drainage improvements and guardrail so the road could be returned to its original alignment.  Paving will occur next summer when temperatures allow; currently there is a gravel section over the new drainage pipe. The completed wall is a wire-and-earth wall called a “mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall.” Photo courtesy Plumas County Public Works
