Plumas County Literacy has launched a Second Chance program in the county jail. The brainchild of literacy coordinator Victoria Metcalf, the program’s starting point is with incarcerated student participants, but it reaches deep into the community to help these individuals long term.
The program is funded in part through grants, including $5,000 of state earmarked literacy funds from the jail and additional state library services funding. In addition, the county allocates $11,500 to the program.
Road to nowhere: A large section of cliff broke loose in the serpentine section of the Feather River Canyon about a mile east of Rich Bar. The event took place at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Tues.
