Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 11, 2015 A CAPSULE, from pge 1A became clear to her that this was a time capsule, put there by a family years ago. The coffee can contained several items: buttons, coins, a can opener, a small powder box, a 1974 issue of the Feather River Bulletin and a sealed envelope. The envelope was from a jeweler in town. Written on it was a name that Dunnington recognized -- Kathleen Wilson. Dunnington met Wilson around one year ago and instantly hit it off with her. Dunnington called Wilson up to tell her about the discovery and to see if Wilson wanted to open the sealed envelope. "I couldn't open the envelope," Dunnington said. "It felt like I would be invading her privacy." Wilson, who now lives in Tobin, drove to town last Thursday to discover the contents of the sealed envelope. Once Wilson saw the envelope, she instantly recognized it. "This held the ring my ex-husband got me," she explained, while scanning it over. Wilson opened the envelope and pulled out a photo of her and her high school sweetheart, the boy she dated before she met her husband. The photo was taken at the 1973 Quincy High School Senior Ball, where she was crowned queen and he king. "I have the two loves of my life right here," Wilson said. Wilson said she didn't remember putting the time capsule into the wall, but the blast from the past was much welcomed. Now, as Dunnington prepares to continue the renovation, she plans to plant her own personal time capsule in one of the walls. According to Scott Lawson, director of the Plumas County Museum, there are several known time capsules around town. .... ' " ' Contents of the time capsule are laid out. They include an old newspaper, buttons, a can opener, a small powder box and a photo from a Quincy High School dance. Photo by James Wilson Most recently, a capsule was installed at the Spanish Creek Bridge in 2013. There is a history of time capsules associated with the county courthouse as well. One was put in at the construction of Plumas County's original courthouse in 1859, then removed during the construction of the new courthouse in 1919. That capsule is currently held at the museum. Another capsule was installed either in 1919 or 1921. Two historical sources claim different dates. That capsule was removed in 1980, when more items were added to it before it was buried once again. Lawson said there are rumors that Freemasons hid time capsules around Plumas County, but none of those rumors have been verified. Lisa Dunnington, left, and Kathleen Wilson hold up a 1974 issue of the Feather River Bulletin that was stored in a time capsule in a downtown Quincy house. Dunnington discovered the capsule, while Wilson was one of the people who originally hid it Supervisors authorize Mental Health positions Board to let commission decide how many members it should have Debra Moore Staff Writer When it came to the Mental Health Department, the Plumas Board of Supervisors displayed a difference of opinion March 3. Supervisor Lori Simpson wanted to reduce the number of mental health commissioners from 20 to 11. Supervisor Sherrie Thrall said that decision should be left up to the commission. In a 4-1 vote, the other supervisors sided with Thrall. But Supervisor Simpson prevailed in a 3-2 vote to begin filling positions in the department. Thrall thought it would make more sense to let a new mental health director choose the deputy director, but Simpson didn't want to delay. However, all of the supervisors ,did approve the job descriptions and salary classifications proposed for the department by Human Resources Director Gayla Trumbo. "These are allthe new positions that the department has been waiting on to carry out services to the community," Trumbo said. The commission According to its bylaws, the Mental Health Commission has 20 members. Supervisor Simpson sought to lower that number to 11 because achieving a quorum has been difficult and the commission has been unable to proceed with its work. The board had been poised to change the number last month, but the wording of the agenda item precluded it from coming to a vote so it was put back on the March 3 agenda. "Where in the bylaws does the Board of Supervisors have the authority?" Supervisor Thrall said of the proposed action. "If I was volunteering my time and the Board of Supervisors arbitrarily said, 'I'm going to change that,' I'd be upset." "Ultimately the Board of Supervisors is responsible for having a functioning board," County Counsel Craig Settlemire said. Supervisor Simpson, who is the board's representative on the commission, wanted to proceed with the reduction so that work could be accomplished. "We're being criticized by the public, criminal justice..." she said. Hank Eisenmann, the commission's longtime chairman, said that it's always been diffmult to achieve a quorum. Board chairman Kevin , Goss asked for the names and numbers of the commissioners so he could personally call them. Ultimately the board voted to allow the commission more time to address the issue.
