   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Luck dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fir. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • 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.

The public is invited to take a hike entitled “The Heart K Ranch from a Maidu perspective” with Trina Cunningham Saturday, June 23. The outing will be held on the Heart K Ranch in Genesee Valley from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Cunningham’s ancestors founded the Davis Ranch (now part of Feather River Land Trust’s Heart K Ranch), where Trina grew up, and her Mountain Maidu ancestors have inhabited Genesee Valley from the beginning of memory. Cunningham is a member of the Maidu Summit Consortium, composed of nine Mountain Maidu groups, with a vision of site protection and stewardship throughout the Maidu homeland.

When Stephen T. Harding took over the Graeagle Store in 1970, he knew nothing about the grocery business.

“For the first 50 years of his life he never spent time in a grocery store other than grabbing a loaf of bread for my mom on his way home from work,” said Steve Harding, the senior Harding’s son and current owner of the store.
