Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017 3B CHP, from page 2B Non-injury accident, Aug. 19 Two vehicles were approaching each other on Forest Service Road #28N03 near Antelope Lake. Duane Schuetts, 47, of Woodland, was driving a 2002 Dodge pickup truck and transporting a passenger. The vehicles were passing each other at a slow rate of speed when the shoulder gave out and the Dodge rolled over onto its right side. Both occupants were wearing seat belts. Neither one was injured. A tow truck was required to pull the truck back onto the road. Accident near Chilcoot, Aug. 19 Courtney Wood, 35, of Adin, was driving a 2009 Subaru eastbound on Highway 70 just west of Chilcoot. The driver's stated speed was 60 mph. At about 8:30 p.m., a dog ran across the road toward the south directly into the path of the Subaru. The dog collided with the front of the car. Woods stopped and reported the accident. She had been wearing her seat belt and was unharmed. An officer arrived on scene and found the dog deceased. The animal's owner was located. The dog was transported to the owner's residence and left in her possession. Debra Moore Managing Editor A week after a Quincy resident discovered human remains on his Bucks Lake Road property near downtown Quincy, a cadaver dog found another part, and then just a couple of day after that the new resident found yet another. A Sheriffs deputy responded to the property Sunday evening, Aug. 20, to retrieve an arm. There are still body parts missing. A Quincy resident first discovered the remains as he was walking toward a remote corner of his property Aug. 10. Sheriffs investigators arrived on scene and confmned that the bones were human and not animal. The California State Department of Justice arrived to help process the scene the ur Do you have a cell phone? If so, sign up for CodeRED -- Plumas County's emergency notification system.

Residents with a landline phone in Plumas County are already in the system, so no Individual char Debra Moore Managing Editor One man has been charged and booked into Plumas County jail, while the other remains at a Chico hospital following a forced entry into a home on Farrar Drive in early morning hours of Aug. 12. According to the Plumas County Sheriffs Office, Anthony Rose is in custody and is being charged with conspiracy, burglary and assault. Corey Mitchell, who was with Rose during the forced entry, remains at Enloe following day. Then two days later the resident's dog retrieved a human bone. A cadaver dog was brought in Monday, Aug. 14, and found another bone -- this time in a shoe. The remains appear to be those of a person who has been dead for several weeks, and scattered by animals. Identification found near the body was that of a male in his late 50s with a Quincy address. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said that the ID may or may not belong to the deceased, but his investigators are working on the assumption that it is, and are trying to piece together the last days of the deceased's life. "This involves interviewing friends and family, and obtaining medical records," Hagwood said. Investigators retrieved DNA from the address listed on the ID, but a positive identification will take weeks to establish. Following the Department of Justice's initial examination of the remains Aug. 11, Hagwood said that there "doesn't appear to be any criminal activity." He explained that an initial examination would reveal if the body suffered fractures, knife wounds or bullet holes. Though no criminal activity is suspected, the cause of death is under investigation. need to sign up a landline.

A 23-year-old man at the residence shot at the two men at 4:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, Aug. 12, after they forced entry into his residence on Farrar Drive and began assaulting him and another individual with fists and a baton. Mitchell was transferred in critical condition to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, while the Rose was treated and released at Banner Lassen Medical Center in Susanville. Two individuals at the residence were treated at Seneca Hospital for serious injuries. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said that a party had been going on at the residence, when Rose was asked to leave.

PG&E to increase flows on North Fork scheduled this weekend Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will again increase water flows for whitewater recreation in the Rock Creek Reach of the North Fork Feather River. The higher flows are planned on Aug. 26 and 27 and again on the fourth weekend of September. Those recreating in or near the river are encouraged to use extra caution during the increased flows. This portion of the river contains Class HI, IV and V rapids, which are only appropriate for skilled paddlers, and not appropriate for tubing. The Rock Creek Reach is the 8.3-mile portion of the North Fork of the Feather River in the Plumas National Forest between PG&E's Rock Creek dam and the Rock Creek powerhouse near Storrie. Prior to the scheduled increase for Aug. 26-27, flows in the Rock Creek Reach will be at about 440 cubic feet per second (cfs). On Saturday, Aug. 26, flows will gradually increase to 1,100 cfs by 9 a.m. The flows will be held at that level until 3 p.m. that day, when flows will be reduced and held at 900 cfs until about 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 27, then gradually reduced back to about 440 cfs. Planned recreational flows for Sept. 23 and 24 are 900 cfs. The recreational flows are done in cooperation with American Whitewater and the Rock Creek-Cresta Ecological Resource Committee. PG&E offers the following water safety tips: -- Sudden immersion in cold water can stimulate the "gasp reflex," causing an involuntary inhalation of air or water. It can even trigger cardiac arrest, temporary paralysis, hypothermia and drowning. When faced with swift water, even the strongest swimmers may be easily overwhelmed. -- Many unseen obstacles can be lurking below the water's surface. Swift water can make these obstacles even more treacherous. Guided trips for inexperienced paddlers are recommended. --Recreating in PG&E canals and flumes is strictly prohibited. Stay out of canals and flumes, which are very dangerous due to slippery sides, sub-surface obstacles, fast-moving water, and transitions to full tunnels and pipes. hileoot established 1929 CAL-FD 158 - Afloat once again f i i i The Frenchman boat dock (Plumas National Forest in eastern Plumas County) is back in the water. Both lanes of the ramp quickly filled with lake enthusiasts. Faced with a Forest Service recreation budget of zero, several key partners came together to replace the broken dock cable, attach the new cable to the anchor under water and get the dock into the water hitched to its new mooring. Partners included Forest Service recreation and fire personnel, Thousand Trails campground hosts, Plumas County Search and Rescue and Plumas County Sheriff's boat patrol. Photo submitted.
