Eleven Greenville women working together one day a week have competed 62 quilts in their first year of organized quilting projects. Twenty five of the double bed sized quilts were given away to burned out and needy families in the area.

30 YEARS AGO... 1980

Endeavoring to hold a $15 and a half million budget for 1980-81 the Plumas County Board of Supervisors eliminated eleven county jobs at this week's budget hearings. Two employees were chopped from the Social Services and Welfare department with one each being eliminated from the following offices: Treasurer-Tax Collector, assessor, building inspector, annex building maintenence, district attorney, probation, clerk recorder, health department and library.

10 YEARS AGO... 2000

The cost of trying Michael E. Franklin topped the $825,000 mark but about $717,000 of it is being passed on to the state because Plumas County is obligated to only pay for the first $108,000 under a formula applied to small county courts. Franklin is being tried for allegedly killing his wife in a snowmibile incident at Bucks Lake in 1996.
