Reporter finds no pitchforks, but plenty of good arguments at gay marriage debat

    As I entered Feather River College’s gay marriage debate on the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 9, I began to wonder—not for the first time—if I should have requested a bulletproof vest when I signed up for this job.
    I was reminded of a friend’s Facebook profile, which has featured the same ever-pressing question for as long as I can remember, “When the ($@&!) is it going to be torches and pitchforks time?”
    As I walked into the Town Hall Theatre I wondered if that fateful moment had arrived for my small hometown.

    Plumas County Literacy has launched a Second Chance program in the county jail. The brainchild of literacy coordinator Victoria Metcalf, the program’s starting point is with incarcerated student participants, but it reaches deep into the community to help these individuals long term.
    The program is funded in part through grants, including  $5,000 of state earmarked literacy funds from the jail and additional state library services funding. In addition, the county allocates $11,500 to the program.

Highway 70 reopens with traffic control

Road to nowhere: A large section of cliff broke loose in the serpentine section of the Feather River Canyon about a mile east of Rich Bar. The event took place at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Tues. Dec. 22 and immediately closed Highway 70 to through traffic. After Highway 70 was reopened to traffic, work continued as crews were blasting the larger rocks and stabilizing the slide area, possibly causing further delays.  Photo by Will Farris

District attorney says he won’t seek re-election

Plumas County District Attorney Jeff Cunan announced Tuesday, Dec. 8, that he would not seek a third term in office.

The announcement ended months of speculation whether the two-term incumbent would run. The decision leaves just one candidate, Assistant District Attorney Dave Hollister, in the field.

Cunan said he was troubled by the lack of candidates. “Democracy demands choices, and unless the public fields an alternative candidate … it will have no choice for the election of our next district attorney.”

The deadline to file for candidacy is March 17, 2010.
