5 YEARS AGO.....1939

The Indian Valley Garage in Greenville was purchased this week by A.C. Dellinger who also has a garage in Quincy and is the Oldsmobile and GMC truck dealer.

Four candidates are in the race for Plumas County High School trustee and include Dr. W.B. McKnight and Ira Baldwin, both of Portola, Earl Morrow of Quincy and L.O. Gray of Greenville.

50 YEARS AGO.....1964

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors passed an emergency ordinance this week prohibiting the use of boats on Antelope Lake during the 1964 season. Fishing from shore will be permitted, however. The county ordinance was necessary because the water level in the newly created lake must be kept low to allow contractors to finish work on the dam and as a safety precaution because of submerged and floating debris in the lake.

25 YEARS AGO.....1989

Chester’s Collins Pine Company won its battle to discharge algae laden water from its millpond into Stover Ditch--for now. In the meantime, the mill hopes to have a cooling system in place which will halt the growth of algae which thrives in warm water.

10 YEARS AGO.....2004

Sierra Valley resident Attillo Genasci celebrated his 95th birthday signing an easement agreement between the California Rangeland Trust and the Genasci Family on the 500 acre Sierra Valley Genasci Ranch.
