75 YEARS AGO..........1937

    A tabulation of reports from the Plumas National Forest checking stations this week revealed a total of 428 bucks reported taken from the forest in the first day of deer hunting season. The figure does not include tag validations by California state officers or game wardens. More of the bucks taken this year still have their horns and have more velvet than usual.

50 YEARS AGO..........1962

    Registration for the upcoming general election in November showed an increase of 407 (6440) total in the number of voters as compared to the total number (6033) at last springs primary election.

25 YEARS AGO..........1987

    A Plumas County proposal to building a logging museum, recreation vehicle park and campground near the entrance to the Plumas County fairgrounds will get its first formal hearing this week by the Plumas County Board of Supervisors.

10 YEARS AGO..........2002

    The Plumas County Board of Supervisors adopted the 2002-2003 budget, the largest spending plan in the history of the county — just over $8 million.

    Farmers and ranchers in Plumas County are feeling the consequences of being hit by another dry year.

    The ski hill at Plumas Eureka State Park will not open by order of the California Department of Parks and Recreation, citing certain health and safety issues that have not been addressed. The Plumas Ski Club is making other plans for its annual Longboard Races.
