There’s no guarantee that paying a consultant a quarter-million dollars will result in funding for a new jail, but Sheriff Greg Hagwood thinks it’s the county’s best chance to secure funding from the state for that purpose.

Ginny Eck’s schedule is full, she spends most of her life on the road, she rarely gets a full night of sleep and there’s nothing she would rather be doing. She’s attained her dream — to make it in the music world.

Growing up in Quincy, Eck joined a dance team at the age of 6. After several classes, it became apparent to her and her parents that she wasn’t a natural dancer.

Still wanting to encourage Eck’s creative abilities, her parents asked her if she wanted to learn an instrument instead. Eck agreed, and began practicing violin with Johny McDonald. Thus began Eck’s interest in music, which eventually inspired her to play professionally.

The era of film projection is officially over — at least in Plumas County.

The Town Hall Theatre showed its last film on the old projector last weekend and is now preparing to show the first film using its new digital projector Friday night.

Movie studios are switching over to the digital format, no longer producing movies on film. The switch to the new system was necessary to keep the local theatre viable.

Longtime projectionist Barbara Stricker was nostalgic and a bit sad last weekend as she projected her last movie on film onto the screen of the Quincy theatre. Add a comment
