The Feather River Blue Star Moms will be hosting their third annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner on Monday, Nov. 11, in the Chester Memorial Hall.
“We host this home-cooked dinner as a way to thank all those that have served and those that are currently serving in the armed forces,” president Ann Cordero said. “We also do this because we enjoy the camaraderie of those sitting down to dinner.”
As part of its mission to provide healthy, educational and community-building opportunities, the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds has decided to allow the general public to participate in a day of raking leaves Nov. 9.
This activity, which has usually been reserved for a small group of specialists, gives a chance to anyone who is inclined to spend a couple of hours breathing clean, fresh air, as well as learning about the multitude of different leaves the 65 acres of fairground produces.

The reluctant departure of Peninsula Fire Protection District board members Bob Phillips and Russ Greenlaw left two empty seats on the board, resulting in two enthusiastic community members applying as replacements.
Peninsula resident Pat Roarty and Lake Almanor Country Club resident Mark Vatcher both submitted letters of interest for the positions.
Although both board members resigned before the Oct. 30 board meeting, only Phillips’ position was available for occupancy. Since Greenlaw officially resigned the evening after the Sept. 18 meeting, the board was unable to accept his resignation until the October meeting.
When traveling abroad, take your binoculars. You might see some interesting birds that enhance the overall traveling experience. Also, obtain a field guide for the area you are visiting and be careful about common bird names; they can be misleading.

Highway 70, about five miles west of the Highway 89 junction near Paxton, re-opened to one-way controlled traffic at 1:55 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
One lane is open as workers try to clean up debris from a tractor-trailer that crashed at 10:10 a.m. According to the CHP, the big-rig was up-righted and moved to the side of the road.
The tractor-trailer, which was carrying scrap metal to Oakland, jack-knifed and rolled onto its side. The toppled big rig blocked both lanes of traffic and spread its cargo over the roadway.
