   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.

As their meeting stretched toward 10:30 p.m., members of the  Plumas Unified School District governing board voted unanimously to table teacher layoffs until a special meeting Feb. 22.

Bret Cook made the motion. "Given the comments we've heard tonight," he said, "I think it would give the public more confidence" if the vote were postponed.

Earlier in the meeting, teacher union president Barbara Benge announced that 87 percent of the district's certificated staff had voted no confidence in superintendent Glenn Harris. She cited failure to provide for academic needs in favor of building a reserve, the compromised process and timeline for school closures, and "a climate of intimidation, fear and retaliation."
