  Supervisor Lori Simpson said that she prays before, during and after Tuesday board meetings — and she still can, but prayer will no longer be part of the regular agenda.

  That’s the decision reached by the Plumas County Board of Supervisors during its Jan. 15 meeting.

  Plumas County supervisors hired a new mental health director, approved the search for a behavioral health therapist and learned that housing a county resident in a state hospital could cost the county as much as $7 million, all during their Jan. 15 meeting.

  Kimball Pier, the county’s new mental health director, was scheduled to begin work Jan. 22. Pier is a psychologist who earned her master’s degree from Seattle Pacific University and her Ph.D. from Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Sierra Pacific truck loses log load

Driver John Peay has a lot to talk about after his log truck lost its load practically on the sidewalk adjacent to Quincy High School. Peay was on his way to the Sierra Pacific Industries mill at about 9:30 Monday morning, Jan. 21, when the logs slid off the truck bed after he turned onto Quincy Junction Road from Highway 70.

  As driver John Peay turned the corner, his load of logs slid out of the front stand and onto the Quincy High School parking spaces near the loading area on Quincy Junction Road.

  Peay was delivering a load of logs to the Sierra Pacific Industries mill when the mishap occurred around 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 21.

  Luckily, the school holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day meant that no cars were parked where the load of logs landed, averting serious potential damage to cars and passersby.

The pilot of a small single-engine airplane made a successful emergency landing on Highway 70 after his engine quit Thursday morning, Jan. 17.

John Schneider, 67, of Janesville, was flying from Susanville to Oroville when his Piper Cherokee 180 began to sputter over Quincy about 7:40 a.m.

Schneider, who immediately called Susanville Municipal Airport Manager Steve Datema with his cell phone to report the problem, said he couldn’t land at the Quincy airport because of fog.
