Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed’s voice cracked as he turned in his courtroom seat and addressed the family of the man he killed more than two years ago.
“I know that there are no words that I can offer that will give you relief from the pain that you experience every moment of every day,” he said.
Moments later, Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman sentenced Wallin-Reed to 84 years in prison for the July 2011 shooting that killed 20-year-old Rory McGuire and wounded two of McGuire’s friends.
The Thursday, Nov. 21, sentencing at the Plumas County courthouse in Quincy included emotional statements from McGuire’s mother and sisters, as well as a statement from Wallin-Reed’s wife, Kerri.

In 1928 Bucks Creek Powerhouse was the hydroelectric project with the highest head (the amount of fall from the crest to the turbine) in the Western Hemisphere.
Nearly 90 years later, it remains Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s highest hydraulic head facility and the power company wants to keep it in its hydroelectric system.
PG&E and the city of Santa Clara took the first step to do just that by filing a notice of intent and pre-application documents with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Nov. 15, in advance of the Dec. 31 deadline.

A hike to the top of Eureka Peak will get your heart pounding and your mind whirling with visions of the historic gold mining days of yore.
Eureka Peak was originally named Gold Mountain, and for good reason. By some accounts, more than $25 million in gold was mined from the area in the mid and late 1800s. In today’s dollars, that translates to approximately $565 million.
The gold strike at Eureka Peak didn’t begin the usual way — with a flash of gold in a pan. Instead, the gold was discovered when a party of miners was sent to explore the mountain and discovered a large quartz outcropping rich in gold, silver and lead.
