   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

He said residents and guests can gain all this and more by attending the 10th offering of “A Few Brews and a Banjo,” a music festival Saturday, June 21.

Concerns about adequate emergency medical response prompted the Board of Supervisors to delay authorizing a music festival in Belden during the Fourth of July weekend.

The supervisors were poised to approve permits for three concerts during their June 3 public meeting, but refrained from approving the Priceless concert scheduled for July 4 – 6 in Belden. They were scheduled to discuss the issue again during their June 10 meeting, after giving promoters time to address concerns raised by paramedic Steve Tolen and Ashley Blesse, a registered nurse and emergency services manager for Plumas District Hospital.
