Plumas County may soon have a new department — the Department of Emergency Management and Environmental Health.
“This would be catching up the administrative structure with the day-to-day reality,” Jerry Sipe told the Board of Supervisors during its May 14 meeting.
On Monday, May 13, Hat Creek Construction began paving operations on the east end of the Chester Flood Control Channel and on both ends of the Feather River Bridge. Grinding continues throughout Chester.
Fresh fruits and vegetables will return to the Quincy Certified Farmers Market site in front of the school district office on Main Street on Thursday, June 20.
In addition to fresh local produce, the market will offer an expanded prepared food section as well as artisan, crafter and educational booths. Live music will accompany each weekly market.
Lake Almanor resident, neurosurgeon and author Jeffrey M. Lobosky, M.D., will make a presentation to the community on the future of health care in America on Saturday, May 25, 6 p.m. at Books & Beyond in Chester.

Allegations of Native American archeological sites being destroyed by logging operations have caused a rift between members of the Maidu Summit and Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
In mid-April, tribe member Farrell Cunningham took a trip to Humbug Valley only to discover a nearly destroyed Maidu village site, a broken grinding rock, and devastated house pits — all of which he believed to be caused by last year’s logging operations.
In addition to the apparent damage, new archeological materials were discovered adjacent to an existing archeological site. Cunningham said, “Evidence of habitation is all around in the form of obsidian and basalt debitage (chips from production of stone tools) but no action has been taken by PG&E.”
