Graeagle pioneer Harvey West, Jr. (shown here with his grandson Trey) passed away Tuesday, April 26, at St. Mary's Hospital in Reno, Nev. The family is planning a celebration of life May 16 at 2 p.m. at the Graeagle Meadows Golf Course.
A $13.7 million federal grant and another $1.7 million from the state of California will finance new telecommunications infrastructure in Plumas, Sierra and Lassen counties — infrastructure that will bring rural areas into sync with more populated areas.
The grants were awarded to Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC), a Portola-based electric cooperative with a long history of working to improve the quality of life in the community.
During a closed session prior to a special meeting April 26 of the Portola City Council, the council appointed City Clerk Leslie Tigan as acting city manager, with all the duties and authorizations of the city manager. She will be acting in the stead of current City Manager Jim Murphy, who was not in attendance at the meeting.
The campground and historic area at Plumas-Eureka State Park (PESP) will be closed for all of the summer season because late and heavy snows have delayed the start of the Environmental Protection Agency’s planned cleanup in the park. At this time it is unclear when the facilities will reopen.
Still smarting from a 2009 – 10 grand jury report that blasts the county for leaving nearly a fifth of its full-time residents without fire protection, the Board of Supervisors held a forum with fire chiefs and concerned citizens last Tuesday.
“We need you to solve this problem,” Charles Plopper, speaking on behalf of the former grand jury, told the board.
