|At approximately 9:30 a.m. today, units responded from the Chester Fire Protection District to a fifth-wheel trailer fire at 286 Main St. in Chester. While the vehicle appeared to be somewhat in the open, there was a small travel trailer parked in the space immediately to the left of the fifth-wheel. Both vehicles are located within 30 feet of Main Street traffic. It is unknown if the smaller vehicle suffered heat damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The California Highway Patrol and a fire crew from the Almanor Ranger District also responded.Photos by M. Kate West|
June 19, 2011 – Hundreds of professional musicians and thousands of music connoisseurs will join together in Quincy for the High Sierra Music Festival June 30 – July 3.
Now in its 21st year, HSMF has mastered the art of assembling an eclectic yet compatible variety of bands, vendors and attractions to create four days of intimate festivities.
This year’s lineup looks particularly promising, with talented musicians such as Neko Case, Gillian Welch and Maceo Parker slated to perform for the first time in Quincy.
June 16, 2011 – “You’re going alone?” That was the invariable response when I told folks I was headed for a stay at Black Mountain Lookout, recently opened as a recreational rental on the eastern edge of the Plumas National Forest.
Well, yeah, I was going alone. That was the whole point of it for me: quiet, solitude, time for reading, reflecting and writing.

June 15, 2011 – There’s good news coming from several fronts that the hospitality industry is a “silver lining” in the otherwise slow-to-recover economy.
Economists say that families are beginning to take trips postponed during the recession, which is boosting tourism revenues in several markets, including California, according to a recent Wall Street Journal report.
Here in Plumas County, hospitality businesses are reporting increases and indeed transient occupancy levels were up a bit in 2010. However, the winter-like spring and snowpack we’ve experienced have delayed road and campground openings — so how this quarter will fare is yet to be determined.
June 15, 2011 – Plumas County ranchers and concerned water rights holders made an impassioned plea for help last week.
Facing fee increases of up to 540 percent for the state-run watermaster program, they took the issue to the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, which met as the governing board of the Flood Control and Water Conservation District on Tuesday, June 7, in Quincy.
Rancher Susie Pearce explained the increase in real dollars and cents.
