Driving down the Feather River Canyon doesn’t have to be a beeline to Chico, Sacramento or beyond. There are plenty of interesting things to do along the route.
The Canyon is rich in mining, railroad, hydroelectric, engineering and cultural history. There are hiking trails, restaurants, stores and interpretive exhibits available to the attentive traveler.
Before the California Gold Rush began in 1849, the Mountain Maidu were the main inhabitants of what is now known as Plumas County. The Maidu were primarily hunter-gatherers who lived near water and oak trees, from which their main dietary staple, acorns, were harvested.
For months, Plumas County supervisors sat silently while individuals railed against Agenda 21 and its infiltration into the county’s general plan.
But that changed April 9.
At the board’s request, County Counsel Craig Settlemire wrote a resolution regarding Agenda 21.
The drastic MediCal cuts to skilled nursing facilities in California are faced with an army of protests and legislative blockades. For Eastern Plumas Heath Care this could mean the difference between life and death.
“We’re feeling positive about things,” said EPHC Public Relations Coordinator Linda Satchwell. “The huge amount of effort we’re putting in is really going somewhere. It’s all starting to register.”
The supervisors received no answer when they sent a letter to the state, and aren’t hopeful that their resolution will fare any better, but they want the $1.2 million in CalFire fees collected from local property owners returned to the county.
“We never got a response,” said Jerry Sipe, the county’s office of emergency services director, of the letter that the Plumas Board of Supervisors sent in October 2012.
Hoping to bring more awareness to the problem of child abuse and neglect in Plumas County, the Plumas Board of Supervisors took a test.
It was a test similar to one that they had taken before as part of declaring April Child Abuse Prevention and Family Strengthening Month.
