reamer River Bu.eun Wednesday, June 11, 2014 ~IA F Debra Moore Staff Writer Plumas Bank customers deposited more than money last month -- they brought in jars of peanut butter. It was part of a month-long campaign to support local food banks and pantries in the communities the bank serves: The bank undertook a peanut butter drive in advance of the summer months so that food pantries would be stocked with a kid- friendly and nutritious item. More than 1,600 pounds were collected in the following breakdown: Chester -- 266 Quincy -- 249.5 Susanville -- 219 Fall River Mills -- 189.9 Port01a -- 186 Tahoe City -- 176.4 Greenville -- 155 Administration -- 84.7 Truckee -- 59.3 Alturas -- 55 Redding -- 26 Kings Beach -- 19.25 "When we launched this campaign we wanted to put the spotlight on our area's hunger issue and engage the community in donating peanut butter for the drive," said Andrew Ryback, Plumas Bank's president and chief executive officer. "Together, we were successful, as 1,686 pounds of peanut butter are being distributed throughout Plumas Bank's service area to families in need by various local food pantries and organizations." He continued, "The results were phenomenal and we extend our gratitude to all those who donated peanut butter. The philanthropic spirit and generosity of our clients, employees, local businesses, organizations, and schools is remarkable. Together, we make a difference!" In Quincy, the 249.5 pounds represents 172 jars, which Kitty Gay says will be put to good use at the food bank. "It goes into every bag that we hand out," Gay said. CAN, the Community Assistance Network, usually buys 10 cases of peanut butter at a time -- 240 jars -- which represents about a one-month supply. Since many people donated large jars, those will be given to large families. Gay said that the food bank relies on peanut butter and cans of tuna as its primary protein to distribute. Six-year-old John Paul Gilbert and brother Emmerson, 4, help Plumas Bank collect peanut butter for local food banks. To celebrate his sixth birthday, John had a pizza party at Round Table and asked all of his friends to bring a jar of peanut butter for the occasion. "It's for all the hungry kids," John said. "1 like helping." His request resulted in 15 jars being added to the stash collected at the Quincy branch.

File photo Storage sh burns behind Bell Lane home Laura Beaton Staff Writer A storage shed burned to the ground behind a residence on Bell Lane near the junction of Bresciani Lane last Thursday night around 6 p.m., said Quincy Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Frank Carey. "When I got there it was fully engulfed -- with ammunition or fireworks going off," Carey said. The barrage of popping went on for about five minutes. "It was ripping pretty good." The first engine shoxved up and firefighters started spraying water on the storage shed. Carey said it took about an hour to put the fire out, with mutual aid from the Meadow Valley Fire Department. "The mill people helped us out too," Carey said, after the fire spread to grasses and wildland. Workers from Sierra Pacific Industries' mill used a water tender to extinguish the wildland fire. Firefighter John Gay went a couple hours later to check on the fire, Carey said, which remained out. "The shed was a total loss," Carey said, but there were no injuries and no other structures damaged. Carey did not know the cause of the fire.
