FEATHER RIVER 'ng Quincy and Surrounding Areas Since 1866 Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 Vol. 144, No. 2 50 CENTS Fugitive captured in Graeagl Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com Plumas County found itself in the middle of a law enforce- ment scenario usually relegat- ed to the movie theater in the early morning of Thursday, Aug. 12, when three young Washoe County residents re- portedly led Nevada police on a high-speed chase across the state line in a stolen sports car containing a stolen fully.auto- matic rifle and ended up hid- ing in Graeagle overnight be- fore being apprehended. "There hasn't been a law en- forcement deployment of that significance in a real long time," Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood commented. When the dust settled, Ter- ril Jacob Boss, 26, of Reno, Re- becca Cooper, 28, of Reno, and Krystal Renee Nardone, 23, of Carson City were arrested and placed in the Plumas County jail. The two women were charged with being acces- sories to a crime, while Boss was booked on charges of pos- sessing stolen property, pos- sessing a stolen vehicle, being an ex felon in possession of a firearm, evading arrest and reckless driving. Those are only the charges they were booked on in Cali- fornia and, as Plumas detec- tive Bill Elliott put it, "They likely face far more serious charges in Nevada." The incident began a little before midnight in Nevada when, Hagwood reported, "Washoe County Sheriff's De- partment received informa- tion of a burglary in progress at a residence of someone who had been deceased for a couple of months." "It's believed that they were stealing automatic and/or semiautomatic firearms," Hagwood added. The sheriff explained that Washoe sheriff's officers sur- rounded the residence and Boss "exited the back door and saw the law enforcement presence." The male suspect reportedly went back inside and started a black 2009 Ford Shelby Mus- tang in the garage, which Hag- wood described as "a tremen- dously powerful sports car." (This was the model used in the updated version of the Knight Rider television se- ries.) There have been some re- ports that the car was See Fugitive, page 10A Fires under control Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com The Forest Service an- nounced the Caribou Com- plex of wildfires was 95 per- cent contained Monday, Aug. 16, with full containment ex- pected the next day. The set of four fires began in bizarre fashion, with a re- port of two fires around 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13, growing to three and then four fires in roughly 15-minute intervals. The strange pattern of fires led the Mt. Hough Ranger District to request Butte County be notified of a possi- ble arsonist moving in that direction. The incident began with the Hot and Wood fires being reported between Belden and Woody's Hot Springs on the north side of the highway. A third blaze, designated the Belden Fire, was reported about 5:30 p.m., near the mouth of Chips Creek, west of the first two. Responders were already See Fires, page 12A Museum fundraiser plays local cemetery.

Campaign targets renters Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Isatchwell@plumasnews.com As the Measure B tax vote comes down to the wire, both campaigns are focusing on a particular segment of the voting population -- renters. These voters don't receive a property tax assessment and are historically less like- ly to vote than homeowners. Measure B supporter Bob Herr summed up the situa- tion. "Property taxpayers (are) split 50-50 (on Measure B)," he said. Renters, who ac- count for 45 percent of the voting population, will de- cide the election. "We're hoping they'll open the envelope (containing the mail-in ballot) and say, 'Tax- es!'" he said. From his point of view, it's important to keep everyone focused on the issue at hand, which is: "Cap the tax," rather than the "social is- sue" regarding the shape of medical care in the future. Opponents of the measure have also recognized the need to influence this group of voters, as the success or failure of Measure B and, in effect, the fate of a new hos- pital building, may well lie in their hands. The Save Our Hospital group has jumped on the woo-the-renter bandwagon. In the Aug. 11 edition of the Feather River Bulletin, it ran a half-page ad, with a header that read: "Attention Renters young and old. The hospital is for all of us." The ad as- serts, "The vast majority of rental-unit owners would see a tax increase of only $3 to $7 per month, and most would not even bother to pass such a small cost on to their renters." The focus on renters elicits See Renters, page 13A Holiday deadlines Due to the upcoming La- bor Day holiday, all Feath- er Publishing offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 6.
