A National Science Foundation video about the RECON project in the western United States is now available online. The video features a clip of Quincy High School student David Hanna commenting on the project from the RECON team’s Gansner Airport data collection site.
“Instead of redoing an experiment, it feels like we’re doing something that’s contributing to science a little more,” Hanna said of the observations and data collection that the students conducted last semester.
The success of previous years’ shows prompted Feather River College’s Outdoor Recreation Leadership program to hold the fundraiser again this year. In addition to ticket sales ($8 per adult and $3 per student), libations and treats will be available in the theatre’s lobby prior to the show.
Michael Mowrey, 51, an employee at High Sierra Animal Rescue, was last seen on New Year’s Day.
Doug Rodrigues, HSAR president, said a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Mowrey’s whereabouts.
“He is like family to all of us, staff and volunteers alike, at High Sierra Animal Rescue,” Rodrigues said. “We are extremely concerned about Michael’s welfare and whereabouts.”
Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia said the search for Mowrey is still “very active.”
A state commission ruled earlier this month that a sitting Plumas County supervisor isn’t breaking any rules by working as a consultant for the city of Portola.

Long ago the Mountain Maidu settled among the forested lands of the Humbug Valley — known to them as Tasmam Koyom — living as one with nature and honoring the traditions of their ancestors.
In 1849, however, the first white settler appeared in the valley. Shortly after, the Plumas County gold rush paved the way for more settlers, and by 1855 a stock range and dairy were built. According to a historic marker database, at least 200 miners established mining claims in the area by 1859. Most of the valley, however, was claimed by a rancher named Henry Landt.
