  • Recall moving forward: Residents upset with the Indian Valley Community Services District’s board gathered enough signatures to force a recall election for three of the directors.
  • Sticker shock: Developers of the stalled Feather River Inn project say they are stunned by the Graeagle Fire Protection District’s demand for an up-front $250,000 annexation fee.
  • Scam revealed: A Quincy man was almost certain an offer to earn cash as a secret shopper was a scam... But he decided to play along.
