   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Low snow pushes Sled Dog Races to Camp 5 location

California Gold Mush Lake Davis Sled Dog and Snowshoe Races are still on for Feb. 26-28, but after surveying the racecourse, organizers have moved the staging area to Camp 5 at a slightly higher elevation.

The race staging area has been moved to the backup location at the Camp 5 turnoff at Lake Davis, accessed by West Street in Portola, until further notice. Fillipini Flat area has melted out and trails from that area are in poor shape.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of positions, parking, staging, timing assistants, runners, information, setup and take-down, gate keepers on courses, trails, movie night and many others.

Organizers need strong, able-bodied volunteers who can take specific instructions well. Volunteers under 18 must have parental/guardian consent. All minors will have adult supervision. Call 832-5577 to volunteer; leave your name, phone number and job preference, if you have one.

Dog handler training will be held Friday, Feb. 26, at Portola City Park from 2:30-5 p.m. Volunteers may arrive anytime during that time period, but not later than 4:30 p.m. to get proper training for assisting with the dog teams. This is exciting but physically demanding work so be prepared.

Saturday demonstrations at the Chalet View will continue as planned.

Event and trail updates can be accessed at CaliforniaGoldMush.com.

For more information, call 832-5577.
