   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:
  • Recall moving forward: Residents upset with the Indian Valley Community Services District’s board gathered enough signatures to force a recall election for three of the directors.
  • Sticker shock: Developers of the stalled Feather River Inn project say they are stunned by the Graeagle Fire Protection District’s demand for an up-front $250,000 annexation fee.
  • Scam revealed: A Quincy man was almost certain an offer to earn cash as a secret shopper was a scam... But he decided to play along.

Leanna May Moore was sentenced to 10 years in prison Sept. 24 for stealing over $600,000 from the Indian Valley Community Services District as its general manager. Less than a month later, Oct. 20, District Attorney David Hollister gave a timeline presentation to the public and shared his insight about the investigation.

Forest Service, conservation groups reach agreement on management of the Sierras

Feather Publishing
The U.S. Forest Service and environmental plaintiffs signed a settlement agreement Oct. 9 ending a decade-long legal battle over the 2004 Sierra Nevada Framework Forest Plan Amendment, which affects management of the Sierra Nevada national forests in California.

A coalition of conservation organizations led by Sierra Forest Legacy and including the Center for Biological Diversity, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club and The Wilderness Society filed suit in early 2005 claiming that the 2004 framework plan failed to adequately protect old-growth forests and associated wildlife species and was not consistent with national environmental laws.

Prescribed burns planned for Plumas National Forest

Feather Publishing

Plumas National Forest officials have started to conduct a number of prescribed burns this fall to reduce hazardous fuels and improve ecosystem health.

“To the extent economically feasible, we’ve removed all merchantable materials prior to burning,” said Earl Ford, forest supervisor. Planned projects include burning piled materials, low- to moderate-intensity understory vegetation burns on the forest floor, and moderate- to high-intensity broadcast burning of brush. The goals of these projects are to reduce the severity of future wildfires, provide added protection for communities in the wildland-urban interface, promote more diverse and resilient ecosystems, and improve habitat for wildlife.
