2A Wednesday, June 4, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Tourism meeting produces immediate unexpected results Debra Moore Staff Writer drnoore@plumasnews.corn When members of the Plumas County Tourism Council met last week, they weren't alone. There was a travel writer in their midst. And within the week the 20 million readers of examiner.comlearned that the best gingersnap can be found in Quincy, that Ada's Place provides the perfect setting for a night's stay, and that great meals are to be found at Moon's and Sweet Lorraine's. Barbara Steinberg, the Sacramento-based owner of California Travel Insider, makes regular treks to Plumas County. This was her third trip in the past year during which she visited Lake Davis, the Graeagle area, the Brewing Lair (which she dubbed her favorite), the Sierra Buttes, Sardine Lake and other landmarks. She hopes to return soon to kayak on Lake Almanor and to return to other favorite places including the Dawn Gardens, the Maddalena and Heart K ranches, and the "Get there soon! And come back often." Barbara Steinberg Travel Writer on Plumas County farmers' markets. "I love to share adventures and unexplored regions," she shared via email. "Plumas County has much to share and I hope to write more in time. As I've often said, 'I run out of time before I run out of fun.'" In articles that appeared on and on her own website, Steinberg wrote of fmding the perfect gingersnap. "Nice chewiness and a bit of a snap -- my dream cookie. American Valley Baking makes a variety of desserts and breads, but I went right for the gingersnap. That's all you need to know. American Valley Baking is very small and local. No Facebook. No website. The focus is on baking. Thank you for that!" American Valley Baking is located in Quincy Natural Foods on Main Street. She was equally effusive about Ada's Place. "A peaceful drive along two-lane scenic roads through Plumas County brings you to this rainbow's end. The cottages are darling. Yes, I would live here!" Steinberg goes on to describe the accommodations and the gardens, which she labeled "stunning." She summed up her article by calling Plumas County "an outdoor recreation wonderland," and concluded with "Get there soon! And come back often." Steinberg's writings played into what Carl Ribaudo, author of the "Rural Tourism Strategic Marketing Plan," told those who attended the tourism council meeting. After naming a long list of the county's attributes, Ribaudo said, "This is your sweet spot. You've got the grocery store, but nobody knows about it. You've got to tell everybody about it." At least one travel writer was listening and she told 20 million readers. Jury finds Portola man guilty of felony domestic violence Dan McDonald Managing Editor A jury last month found a 41-year-old Portola man guilty of four felonies stemming from two separate domestic incidents with different victims. David Scott Hall is scheduled to have a sentencing hearing June 26. He faces up to 13 years in state prison. The jury delivered its verdict May 23, following a four-day trial in Plumas County Superior Court. The jurors heard testimony from 11 witnesses, including one of the victims. Hall is guilty of two counts of domestic violence, one count of false imprisonment and one count of child abuse -- all felonies. The jury also found Hall inflicted great bodily injury during one of the acts of violence. He previously served prison time for a child abuse conviction. Hall was on trial for incidents that occurred in March 2013 and July 2012. David Scott Hall He was arrested March 1, 2013, after Plumas County Sheriffs Deputy Andrea Murana responded to the emergency room because of injuries suffered by Hall's girlfriend. The victim reportedly had such extensive facial injuries that she was unrecognizable. An examination revealed a broken bone in her neck as well as facial swelling, a cut over her eye, bite marks on her shoulder and chest, and extensive bruising all over her body. Hall was also on trial for an assault on a different former girlfriend and her children that happened July 6, 2012. In that case, Hall shoved his girlfriend into a bathtub, knocking her unconscious, and choked her ll-year-old daughter to the point of unconsciousness. The adult victim in the 2012 case was flown in from Pennsylvania to testify. The most recent victim refused to testify. Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister, who prosecuted the case, said he appreciated "the consideration and deliberation of the jury in reaching their verdict, as well as the witnesses for their courage in testifying." "This case featured horrific injuries from very dangerous situations," Hollister said. "It highlighted some of the challenges in prosecuting the crime of domestic violence." Hall remains at the Plumas County jail where he is being held without bail. Come to Preventive Clinic E(;I . ALL-IN-0NE MAMMO DAY- Sat.

Festivities will include a big reunion, historical presentation and wine tasting on that day. Photo by Laura Beaten School. house to celE,c00 Laura Beaten Staff Writer The Meadow Valley Schoolhouse will host a centennial celebration Sunday, Aug. 17, the last day of the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. A reunion including students, parents, teachers and community members will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. at the schoolhouse on the corner of Bucks Lake Road and Meadow Valley Cemetery Road. A presentation encompassing the history of L"I g I! the schoolhouse will be given by Plumas County Museum Director Scott Lawson. Refreshments and wine tasting will be available. The existing schoolhouse was built in 1914, and it provided classes for the next 57 years before it was closed by Plumas Unified School District despite numerous attempts by parents to keep the school open. In March 1973, PUSD conveyed ownership of the schoolhouse to the Central Plumas Park and Parkways District by quitclaim deed. In 100 years 1983 the parks department decided it didn't need the schoolhouse after all, and deeded it over to the Meadow Valley Fire Department. The fire department took over operations of the schoolhouse and began fundraising for restoration efforts. Currently the schoolhouse may be rented for weddings, special events, craft fairs and more. To contribute photos or memorabilia for display at the centennial celebration, call Donna McElroy at 283-2896, or Peter Beck at 283-0966.
