On April 23, 23-year-old Mia Krakowski will be taking a hike. For most Portola natives this is a common recreational activity, but most Portola natives do not hike the 2,663-mile Pacific Crest Trail all by themselves.
Krakowski will be embarking on her first long-distance hike through the West. She will be taking about five months and will begin at the PCT trailhead near the Mexican border. She plans to be finished around August or September.
Given the extensive resources and research required to get a thorough understanding on the utilization of woody biomass, Indian Valley Community Services District board members decided to put a hold on taking action on the matter.
During their April 10 meeting, the board members agreed that research into the subject is so extensive that it would take hiring a full-time engineer to get the proper handle on things.
Plumas County employees will continue to work four nine-hour days — at least that’s the assumption county supervisors will begin with as they start the next fiscal year’s budget process.
During the board’s April 9 meeting, the county’s budget consultant, Susan Scarlett, said that she and county Auditor Roberta Allen were beginning to work on the 2013-14 budget and wanted direction.

Dr. Sue Segura could be back as principal of Quincy High School next year.
After more than four hours in closed session Thursday night, the Plumas Unified School District board announced that it would pursue a “conditional offer of employment” to Segura.
The board did not offer details regarding the conditions attached to the offer.
The announcement was a reversal of the board’s March 8 decision to not offer Segura a contract based on a its vote of “no confidence.”

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.
