Four months after the Dec. 15, 2013, fire that destroyed a half-block of downtown Quincy, the corner sits empty and will likely remain that way for a while.
Tommy and Carol Miles, who had been refurbishing the former Great Northern building (one of the two structures destroyed in the fire), hope to have building plans and permits completed within a month, but don’t anticipate construction beginning anytime soon.
Three family members of a Portola man who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy last year have filed a wrongful death claim against Plumas County.
Mariano Joseph Mauro, Jr., Anthony Joseph Mariano Mauro and Angelena Mauro are each seeking $2 million in damages for the death of their father, Mariano Joseph Mauro.
Jon Kennedy, chairman of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, announced Monday that he is bowing out of the June election and will not seek a second term.
“I love this job; I love the problem solving,” Kennedy said, “but I can’t continue to put the needs of the county before those of my family.”
The crowd listens to the music and mills around at the ice cream social. Though the event was announced just two days earlier, a large number turned out for free ice cream and live music.
How cool is Quincy, the town voted the coolest small town in the West? Ice cold. The England-based company Wall’s apparently thinks so, at least. The European ice cream company set a crew up in Quincy on April 11 to film a commercial to be aired online later this month.
The company coordinated with the San Francisco branch of DDB Worldwide Communications Group Inc., a global advertising firm. Some members of the firm saw Quincy on Yahoo late last year, voted as one of the coolest small towns in America, and thought it would be a great location to film.
“It’s such a cute, quaint, small town,” explained DDB’s Danielle Watchman on its choice of location. “We really liked the look of it. We thought it would be a nice fit for what we are going for.”
The Lassen National Forest will soon open select campgrounds near prime fishing waters in conjunction with the start of the 2014 fishing season.
Forest officials project plenty of campsites will be available to meet anticipated demand for the opening day of trout season.
