   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.

Power outage in East Quincy

Feather Publishing
1/23/2012

Updated 4:00 p.m.

Local power is restored the moment this fuse (see photos inside story) at the corner of 1st Street and Highway 70 is replaced by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. worker Kevin Moore. Residents heard a loud “boom” at 1:24 p.m. Monday when the fuse blew.

Moore kept busy most of the day Monday replacing fuses on power poles. Heavy wet snow overnight created a buildup on local power lines and trees. The weight of the ice and snow can cause tree limbs and entire trees to fall onto power lines, knocking the lines and poles down and breaking them. The extra weight can also push the lines onto each other, as in this case, causing an outage. A PG&E representative said 217 customers were affected by this power outage in East Quincy.
