The Plumas Audubon Society and Feather River Land Trust will host a public forum addressing forest and fire restoration in Genesee Valley at the Taylorsville Grange on March 27 at 5:30 p.m. People interested in forest and fire management on public and private lands are encouraged to attend.
The Plumas-Sierra County Farm Bureau is honored to recognize and award deserving high school graduates and college students pursuing their education goals with scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. Applications are due May 1 and are available by calling 993-4550 or 993-4097, by requesting online at email@example.com or at local high schools.
The Feather River Blue Star Moms, a support organization that serves active duty troops and veterans in Plumas and Lassen counties, has begun its annual donation drive to send overseas troops Easter care packages.
A list of urgently required items are jerky, socks, trail mix, dried fruit, individual powdered drink mixes and protein bars.
With the Quincy Community Services District’s wastewater treatment plant permit expiring next January, board members and staff are gearing up to satisfy the new permit’s discharge regulations that have yet to come to light.

To complicate matters further, the district is in the midst of rectifying violations incurred last year when the emergency pond, never a designed and engineered levee, leaked.

“Money is seed corn, not just sustenance,” Aleece Oravetz said in her address to Plumas Unified School District’s board of directors March 13.
Oravetz was referring to the district holding on to too much money in its reserve fund. She said excessive austerity creates stress for students, parents and teachers.
