Chester Branch Library will be closed May 16-18 due to a broken heater. The library is expected to re-open on Thursday, May 19 at noon.
Plumas County’s only state park, Plumas-Eureka State Park (PESP), is on the list of 70 parks to be closed for the next two fiscal years, California State Parks announced today.
The PESP closure is unlikely to have much of an effect this summer because a scheduled hazardous materials cleanup meant most facilities would be closed anyway, said Matt Green, acting district superintendent for the park agency’s Sierra District.
Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood was the keynote speaker at the Almanor Tea Party meeting May 4 at the Chester Memorial Hall.
During this presentation he took his message beyond access to the forests to the balance of power between the people and the federal government.
In scathing terms, a judge has rejected the county’s request for reconsideration of its lawsuit against former District Attorney Jeff Cunan.
In comments during a hearing April 28, visiting Judge Ersel Edwards called County Counsel Craig Settlemire “unprofessional,” suggested he had “other motivations” and chastised him for not doing his due diligence.
If public opinion counts when it comes to the actions of a public agency like the California Department of Fish and Game, then the state game refuges will remain closed to hunting.
In a nine-page public comment against elimination of the refuge status, Senior Attorney Ralph Henry of the Humane Society of the United States and the Fund for Animals blasted the department over several aspects of its proposal.
