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

High water this year will make fishing on opening day poor this year, local anglers believe.

A rotary snowplow, assigned to clear the Bucks Ranch Road of snow from Tollgate to the summit arrived in Quincy yesterday, transferred temporarily from Susanville. It will operate 6 hours per day, using two crews of men for approximately ten days until the road is cleared.


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

Burglars, believed to be the same ones who broke into the Quincy High School last week and broke into the safe and got away with $437.34 in cash and then broke into Loyalton High School Monday night, struck again Tuesday night at both Portola High School and Portola Elementary School. They stole $115.00 in student body funds from the high school and $20.00 from the elementary school.


25 YEARS AGO.......1987

Work to repair storm damaged Highway 89 between Crescent Mills and the Greenville Wye began this week to complete last years storm damage when Indian Creek flooded during the flood of 1986. The repairs will cost $239,000.


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

With a 4 to 1 vote, the Plumas County Board of Supervisors committed $15,000 toward the Quincy Library Group lawsuit aimed at the United States Forest Service in what QLG supporters call the federal government's failure to implement the Herberger-Feinstein bill pilot project.
