  During its fifth annual Santa Book Signing held Friday, Dec. 14, Books & Beyond raised $250 for the Plumas County Sheriff’s Employees Association’s annual toy drive.

  Two beautifully crafted toys were up for grabs to help raise the money: Rocket the Rocking Horse and the bookstore’s longtime resident, the Junie B. Jones doll.

  Rocket the Rocking Horse was handcrafted and donated by an anonymous patron of the artists of the Backroom Gallery. Rather then donate Rocket to only one fortunate child, the gallery decided to spread the wealth by selling tickets for the horse, the proceeds of which would go to providing toys for many needy children.

A series of winter storms has caused power outages impacting thousands in PG&E’s North Valley Division, with most customers to be restored Christmas Eve, PG&E said today.

Strong winds and heavy, low-elevation snows have brought down trees and power lines, especially in Shasta and Plumas counties. About 8,000 PG&E customers are without power in 90 separate outages in the North Valley region, with most to be restored by midnight Monday.  Today’s break in the weather should speed up the restoration process.
