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

  • Luck 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 fir. 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.

PDH board sets election date for tax cap initiative

    At their board meeting April 1, the Plumas District Hospital board unanimously adopted a Resolution calling for an election on the Tax Limitation Initiative.
    The board either had to adopt the initiative as is, which would cap the Measure A tax at $50 per $100,000 of assessed house value, or else choose to go to election.
    Further, they had to choose between a mail ballot election, which would take place on August 31, 2010 or the general election on Novemeber 2.
    Board director, Valerie Flanigan opened discussion by saying that information on whether the hospital would be approved for a low interest USDA loan wouldn’t be available until September 2010. PDH has begun the process leading up to application.
    She reasoned that the board should wait until the November 2 general election so that voters had as much information as possible on other funding sources, such as the low interest USDA loan. The rest of the board agreed.
    Tax cap proponents voiced their opinion that the board should adopt the Initiative and not wait for an election.
