  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Members of the Feather River Model A Club drive across the new Spanish Creek Bridge moments after a ribbon cutting dedication ceremony Monday, July 16. Model A’s were the first cars to drive across the original Spanish Creek Bridge in 1932, so it was fitting for them to commemorate the completion of the new bridge in similar fashion.
