Feather Publishing

The Plumas-Sierra County Fair held in Quincy, Calif. starts Wednesday, August 10 and runs through Sunday, August 14, 2011.

Pride in the Past, Faith in the Future….

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fair theme so appropriate! We absolutely have much to be proud of in our Past. Plumas and Sierra counties have always represented the best of a rural, mountain county. Our history is rich with leadership, strength and hospitality. From logging to fishing, mining to golfing, Plumas and Sierra County are truly the gateway to the “high country.”

Sierra Institute offers education tour of Deer Creek

Feather Publishing
8/2/2011

The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment will once again offer a walk down Deer Creek, Aug. 13, one of the last free-running salmon streams in California.

Streams in Northern California use to be so thick with salmon that you could walk across the water and not get your feet wet. While some may have exaggerated how many fish there really were, today there have been huge population declines and — in many cases — a complete loss of salmon in California fresh water streams. The salmon season in the oceans off California and Oregon was canceled in 2008 and 2009 due to the limited number of fish.

Body found on Pacific Crest Trail

Feather Publishing
Updated 8/3/2011

The report of a body just off an equestrian section of the Pacific Crest Trail drew personnel from the Forest Service, California Highway Patrol and Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, as well as paramedics from Plumas District Hospital on Thursday, July 28. The victim, Robert Lloyd Stuart, 52, of Belden, rested about 150 feet from Highway 70 on a steep slope. Emergency vehicles were parked in a small pullout about one-half mile west of Belden. Personnel hiked up the hill and eventually brought Stuart down to a waiting ambulance. According to Plumas County Sheriff Sergeant Steve Peay, Stuart likely fell while hiking either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Peay said no foul play was suspected.

Leaders vent frustration at CHP

Jack Brown stared across the table and gave the California Highway Patrol a piece of his mind.

“People in Plumas County are afraid of the highway patrol. They’re scared to death of you,” the Quincy businessman said. “They are afraid to go out to dinner. They are afraid to have a glass of wine. There’s un-called-for stops.”

Brown’s criticism summarized the sentiment of many community leaders who gathered in Quincy for a July 15 meeting with CHP Commander Bruce Carpenter and his boss Todd Chadd.

The two-hour session, conducted by State Assemblyman Dan Logue, took the local CHP to task over the way it has been doing business.
