Two local Australian shepherd brothers brought home ribbons from the Klamath Dog Fanciers Agility Trial held Oct. 11 – 13 at the Klamath Falls Fairgrounds.
Foxxmo and Benny won 13 qualifications, three new titles, seven first place ribbons, one second place ribbon, two third place ribbons and three Q’s in Time to Beat.
This trial was the sixth AKC agility trial that handler Johnene Mc Donald has entered the dogs in. They are excelling quickly, she said, due to the help of Terry Popish, of Snowy Pine Dog Training in Graeagle, who has the top two agility St. Bernards in the United States.
Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister admitted that he was a little nervous when he sat down with his family to watch the NBC Dateline segment on the Wallin-Reed murder trial that aired Oct. 18.
“I was really holding my breath,” Hollister said during an interview Oct. 22. “There is the unknown as to what portions of the trial or interview they will use and how your statements will be portrayed.”
But he worried unnecessarily. Hollister was pleased with the result.

Celebration of life to be held Saturday
The family of Kevin Stephens announced that a celebration of life gathering will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Veteran’s Hall in Quincy.
The community is invited to attend the potluck. Drinks will be provided by the family.
The Sierra Pacific Industries worker who died in a work-related accident Wednesday morning at the Quincy mill was identified as Kevin Michael Stephens, 24, of Meadow Valley.
Stephens reportedly suffered fatal injuries while he was cleaning a conveyor belt at the mill.
The theme for the 2014 Plumas-Sierra County Fair was suggested by fair manager John Steffanic and approved by the board at its Oct. 23 meeting.
“Fair, Fun and Games” is the moniker for next year’s fair, set for Aug. 13 – 17, 2014. Steffanic said the theme lends itself to a variety of activities in every arena, from giant outdoor checkerboards and hopscotch games to a “Redneck” game night, “Battle of the Bands” and a revival of the “Sweetheart of the Mountains” competition.
