That is an improvement of $1.5 million or 76 percent. For the last quarter of 2013, the bank's net income increased by $369,000 to $916,000 as compared to $547,000 for the same period in 2012. Reflecting on Plmnas Bank's performance in 2013, Andrew J. Ryback, president and chief executive officer, commented, "This was a year of significant progress for Plumas Bancorp. Most notably, net income for the year was the best the company has posted since 2007. Additionally, credit quality improved considerably in 2013, with nonperforming assets at their lowest level in over six years while at the same time net charge-offs declined by $2 million from 2012. "Another important 2013 accomplishment was the repayment of all obligations to the U.S. Treasury for its 2009 investment in the company under the Capital Purchase Program. This transaction reflects our commitment to maximize shareholder value and demonstrates our confidence in the future of the company." Ryback continued, "After working through difficult and challenging economic conditions for more than five years, our solid performance in 2013 demonstrates our resilience and should instill confidence that the bank has a strong foundation to support future growth. "With essentially all performance metrics -- earnings, credit quality, deposit growth, loan growth and margin stabilization -- moving in the right direction, we are optimistic as we begin 2014. We will continue to keep our focus on increasing earnings, improving credit quality, maintaining our well-capitalized status and increasing shareholder value," Ryback said. Headquartered in Quincy, Plumas Bank was founded in 1980. It operates 11 branches located in Plumas, Lassen, Placer, Nevada, Modoc and Shasta counties. The bank offers a wide range of financial and investment services to consumers and businesses and has received nationwide preferred lender status with the United States Small Business Administration.

Drought workshop scheduled A drought management workshop is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 28, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Vinton Grang~ Hall on Highway 70 in Vinton. The Sierra Valley and Feather River resource conservation districts are hosting the event for area~ farmers and ranchers in response to growing local concerns about potentially devastating water shortages and drought impacts from the lack of winter precipitation and the state drought declaration. help REPLACING or REPAIRING .

Lic. #453927 (530) 283-2035 Sign-in and refreshments will begin at 12:15 p.m. and the workshop will begin promptly at 1. Key presenters from the University of California Cooperative Extension and UC Davis Rangeland Laboratory will discuss drought management topics ranging from water resource forecasts, native meadow and irrigation strategies during shortages, forage and feed alternatives, noxious and invasive plant concerns, herd health and nutrition, destocking and market timing, ranch budget analysis, risk management, and utilizing media and social media for education and support systems. Even prior to the January drought declaration, California ranchers had begun to weigh strategies to offset the impact of the rainfall shortages on winter foothill rangelands as grass shortages and scarcity of stock drinking water forced alternative considerations. These winter ranges are just half of the picture for Plumas-Sierra ranchers who will return to the mountain valleys with their herds in May and June for summer grazing on irrigated pastures. The area's two watermasters forecast severe water cutbacks and curtailments at a recent drought discussion meeting in Loyalton. The workshop is free and open to all interested parties.
