   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Luck dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fir. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

  On Monday, Nov. 19, residents of Portola and Delleker were faced with a powerless afternoon. The outage was a result of a propane leak in Delleker, and around noon all power on the north side of the Feather River was shut off.

  A Bi-State propane truck sprang a leak off of Bella Vista Drive and Cuesta Way while filling up a tank in the neighborhood.

  Reid Mason says he spends a lot of time admiring his neighbors’ wood piles. He can’t help it.

  “Everyone has wood envy around here,” Mason said with a smile. “You see somebody’s stack and you go ‘oh man, he’s ready for winter.’

  “And then you see my stack and you say ‘oh, he’s got a ways to go.’ So wood envy is a big thing I see in this county. It’s really a funny thing. But we are into it.”

Almanor Fishing Association works to improve Almanor fishing

  Since the late 1800s, artificial methods to increase the fish population in California have been employed in order to fill a void between nature’s ability to produce fish and anglers’ demands for them.

  To keep up with the demand, the California state Legislature passed “An Act to provide for the restoration and preservation of fish in the waters of this state” April 2, 1870. Under this act, the three newly appointed commissioners of fisheries were given the duty to establish “fish breederies” and stock streams, lakes and bays with both foreign and domestic fish.

  During his Nov. 13 appearance before the board, Hollister reminded the supervisors that he warned them during the budget hearings that he would probably need more money to pay for investigations this fiscal year.
