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

  • Lucky 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 fur. 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.

School closure committee holds public forum

It is difficult, to say the least, to separate the issue of school closures and/or consolidations from emotions. In fact it may be impossible as the identities of the communities that stand to be affected, should the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) move forward on the proposed plan presented by the PUSD administration, are directly linked to the schools in question.

Protest at high noon

Protesters and bright neon signs turn Presidents Day in Chester into a colorful day despite the gray skies. While it was obvious many of the participants were objecting to the threat of school closures, a new message, “Recall Harris,” took center stage. Chanting “Save our schools” were individuals of every generation — there to show support for all Plumas County schools, local businesses and healthy communities. The noise impact increased dramatically when those passing by in cars showed support for the protest by honking and waving. While the signs held a variety of messages, two in particular were standouts: “We Stand United Against PUSD” and “Rest in Peace Plumas County — No School — No People — No Business, Recall Harris.” In addition to advocating for more time for the 7-11 committees to form their recommendations, Guy McNett, an Indian Valley senior resident, offered a unique perspective when he said, “My daughter went to school in Indian Valley 25 years ago. We need young families, we don’t want to just look around and see faces our age.” Photo by M. Kate West
