Chips the bobcat continues to attract the limelight with news of her recent release.

The California Department of Transportation has completed its tree removal project along Highway 32 and will be opening bids for curve improvement and shoulder widening April 23.
According to Caltrans Senior Construction Engineer Jim Rogers, it should take two to three weeks for the contract to be awarded and another four to five weeks before work begins. He said at the soonest, work could commence by the beginning of June.

On April 23, 23-year-old Mia Krakowski will be taking a hike. For most Portola natives this is a common recreational activity, but most Portola natives do not hike the 2,663-mile Pacific Crest Trail all by themselves.
Krakowski will be embarking on her first long-distance hike through the West. She will be taking about five months and will begin at the PCT trailhead near the Mexican border. She plans to be finished around August or September.
Given the extensive resources and research required to get a thorough understanding on the utilization of woody biomass, Indian Valley Community Services District board members decided to put a hold on taking action on the matter.
During their April 10 meeting, the board members agreed that research into the subject is so extensive that it would take hiring a full-time engineer to get the proper handle on things.
Plumas County employees will continue to work four nine-hour days — at least that’s the assumption county supervisors will begin with as they start the next fiscal year’s budget process.
During the board’s April 9 meeting, the county’s budget consultant, Susan Scarlett, said that she and county Auditor Roberta Allen were beginning to work on the 2013-14 budget and wanted direction.
