"The foreman in charge of the contractor's project made some mobilization adjustments and, coupled with a lack of any major 'glitches,' the contractor was able to complete all roadway grinding operations as well as placement of new pavement on the entire length of the two travel lanes today," Public Works Director Bob Perreault announced via email at 5 p.m. Oct. 29. "I'm glad that it all went smoothly," Supervisor Lori Simpson quipped the following day. She had received numerous complaints about the roadway following last summer's sewer improvement project. The bumpy road jarred vehicles and the nerves of those who lived along the roadway because of the noise that big rigs and trailers made as they jostled over the uneven pavement. But it was more than an unpleasant ride: county road workers feared that winter weather would make for perilous driving because the snow couldn't be removed from the uneven pavement properly, resulting in icy patches. While all agreed that the road needed to be repaired, the entities involved couldn't agree on who was responsible for the fix. Perreault negotiated with Cal Electro, the company hired by the Quincy See Road, page 5A Tomorrow: Mindfulness in Action Workshop, 9 a.m. - noon, large public health conference room at 270 County Hospital Road Suite 206 (Courthouse Annex).

Tomorrow - Saturday: Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library quarterly used book sale, Plumas County See Q, page 5A To subscribe to the Bulletin, call 530.283-0800 I Debra Moore Staff Writer d Nearly 2,000 doses of flu vaccine were dispensed last week as Plumas County residents took advantage of free drive-thru clinics offered by the Public Health Department in conjunction with Eastern Plumas Health Care. During an interview following the final clinic in Quincy, on Oct. 31, public health nurse Tina Venable said she was pleased with the turnout. "The clinics went well," she said. Most of the communities showed increased turnout, though numbers were down a little in Quincy, which Venable attributed to the weather. Though the drive-thru clinics have concluded, there will be more opportunities for members of the public to receive a flu shot. The health department will be working in the schools next week to provide vaccines for the students, mostly in the form of the mist, which is only available for those from 2 to 49 who have no underlying medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease. Once the school visits have been completed, Venable envisions setting up one or more walk-in clinics at the health department. Additionally, individuals can call the health department and set up a time to be vaccinated, either at the main building in Quincy or at the satellite clinics in the other communities. To make an appointment ' call 283-6330. When asked to describe the best time window to receive a flu shot, Venable recommended that anyone who is traveling for the holidays should get one soon. "It takes a couple of weeks for the shot to be effective," Venable said, "so optimally before Thanksgiving." She noted that flu season gets fully underway in January and February, so there is still time for people to receive their vaccine.

Photo courtesy Plumas County Museum Historical backbarfor sale James Wilson Staff Writer m Just looking at the old wooden back bar that presided over the Capitol Saloon evokes moments of history for many in Quincy. Men and women in the late 19th centurY7 took in the same sight as customers in the early 21st century -- an ornate wooden bar adorned with carvings and a full mirror split up into three sections. In 2011, when Plumas Arts bought the former home of the Capitol Saloon, many residents asked one question: What's going to happen to the back bar? Rob and April Gott, See Bar, page 5A !
