Brian Fulcher pleaded no contest to a charge of pos- sessing methamphetamine for sale. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 1 in Plumas County Superior Court.

Resisting On May 11, Susanville resi- dent Maurice Wimberly en- tered a plea of "no contest" to a felony violation of resisting an executive officer. Wimberly's conviction stemmed from an incident where he was arguing with his girlfriend in the Clare- mont Drive area of Quincy. When deputies responded, Wimberly retreated up a hill- side where he continued to loudly rant. When the deputies tried to confront Wimberly, he fought the deputies and tried to escape. He is scheduled to be sen- tenced June 8.

I am black with white paws. I am a bit hyper, but I do sleep through the night and I like to sleep on the bed. I love kids of all ages. I like to go for walks. I get along with other dogs very well, but have never been around cats. I do not like to be left alone. I know the commands "sit" and "stay". I am a very active and friendly dog. I was returned to High Sierra Animal Rescue because my owner was going back to work and would be left alone all day. I am looking for a family that would have time for an active, energetic young dog.
