Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, July 14, 2010 3B L AW d O R D E R Law and Order policy Information that appears in this column is Compiled from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office' activity log, the county correc- tional center's booking log and California Highway Patrol press releases. The Sheriff's Blotter shows initial charges. In some in- stances the charges may change after the disPatch report. We do not report suspects' names in ar- rests for public intoxication or drunken driving unless accompa- nied by another serious charge, such as probation violation, a ve- hicle accident or another felony. The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney de- termines there is insufficient evi- dence to prosecute. The fact that someone was involved in an au- tomobile collision does not con- stitute liability or fault. Minors are named as legal-age drivers at 16, unless they are charged with a crime in conjunction with an in- cident. The CliP determines whether injuries are character- ized as minor, moderate or fatal. SHERIFF'S BLOTTER Arrests Fourteen people were arrest- ed on intoxication charges.

Main St., Jackson Ste., Quincy 500 First Avenue, Portola Mandated & red Programs by Patty Miller 8, John Banks Plumas Unified School District Hi h Schools Receive Additional Course Offerings for Superintendent PUSD Glenn Harris During the June board meeting, district administration and the governing board agreed to increase the offerings for our 7-12 students throughout the district. Each high school-has received additional sections based on principal and staff input in meeting the needs of their students. The overall goal was to increase offerings while working within the parameter of limiting' most secondary class sizes to a maximum of 25 students. This is a profound change in district philosophy, as the district struggles with declining enrollment, declining state and local revenues, and increasing cost of maintaining aging facilities. The cost of this decision to the district will be between $600,000-$800,000 annually. It is our intent to increase our educational options for students, while we take the time to appropriately analyze our facility costs and use patterns. Once this is complete, recommendations will be brought to the board to increase the cost effectiveness of using our facilities. New Faces Coming to PCOE and PUSD While the district works to hire teachers and classified staff throughout, one staff change in the County Office occurred last month. Betty Moura, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent, retired after 12 years of service to various superintendents. We all will miss Betty, and wish her family the best during retirement. Patty McCutcheon has been selected to replace Betty as Executive Assistant. Patty has worked in various capacities throughout the district over time and is a wonderful addition to our office. Sincerely, Glenn R. Harris, Superintendent 0
