   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

School district needs committee members

Alicia Knadler
Indian Valley Editor

Articles about possible school closures in local newspapers, paragraphs in school newsletters, emails and messages — they all add up to what seems like indifference in some communities.

Recruitment efforts for Local Community Advisory Committees have not been very successful.

There were two applicants in Indian Valley, where rumors about school closure have been rampant for decades.

There was at least one interested person in Quincy, reported administrative assistant Patty McCutcheon, and none for either Chester or Portola.

The Plumas Unified School District superintendent shrugged his shoulders over the issue during the Tuesday, Nov. 8, board meeting.

The committees give residents the opportunity to be involved before decisions are made about school closures.

Time is short: less than two months are left before the board will need recommendations.

The committees will review recommendations from district administration and the Facilities Advisory Committee.

Those who decide they are interested enough to work for a few short weeks on a local committee are urged to submit a letter of interest by Friday to Patty McCutcheon in the Superintendent’s Office, 50 Church St. in Quincy.

The letter should contain details of how the person’s personal and/or professional experience would be beneficial to the board.

Appointments will be made during the December meeting.
