One of the toughest things for small, rural hospitals like those in Plumas County is recruiting and retaining quality physicians.
During Plumas District Hospital’s recent Measure B debate, one of the main arguments the hospital gave for new construction was the need for a facility that would lure potential physicians.
“Those trout are catchable size; much larger than we received last year. Boy, are they going to be big in the spring, “ said Paul Garrido, Almanor Fishing Association Oct. 18, during the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) delivery of 50,000 trout to the local fish cage program.
Garrido estimated the fish being delivered were six to eight inches long, an average of two inches longer than the fish delivered in 2009.
The Plumas County Community Development Commission is in the final stages of taking control of the Wildwood Village complex, which will be dedicated entirely to providing subsidized housing for seniors and disabled residents.
Plumas Corporation Executive Director John Sheehan told the Board of Supervisors, at a recent meeting, that improvements to the county’s and Plumas National Forest’s wildland urban interface (WUI) maps could generate $2.7 million in economic activity over the next two years.
The second annual Indian Valley Story Fest will take place from 1-5 p.m. on Nov. 6 at the Indian Valley Community Center in Greenville. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children under 12 or only $10 for the whole family.
