This project is part of a na- tion-wide process to autho- rize OHV use on those exist- ing trails, roads and areas, which will provide for a vari- ety of recreational experi- ences in a safe and ecological- ly sustainable manner. Au- thorized use would also con- tinue a restriction on travel between trails, roads and ar- eas (cross-country) unless some type of permit is in place that allows otherwise.

Former Deputy County Counsel Brian Morris filled in • for Thompson. When asked to briefly explain the situation, Morris said that Thompson contact- ed him earlier and.that he agreed to represent the coun- ty on an emergency basis through the remainder of her contract. -k"k * New Plumas County Sher- iffs Commander Gerry Hen- drick didn't have to utter a word and his department was given the nod to fill two positions. The scene April 15 was a complete change from just a week before when Undersh- eriff Michael Beatley was be- fore the board arguing that the two positions were vital to the department. The difference was that County Administrative Offi-, cer Jack Ingstad was present at the most recent meeting. Ingstad said that while he is encouraging close scrutiny of all hires, the sheriff is an elected official and should have more control over his own budget. If the funding is available, he said the sheriff should be able to determine if the department could afford replacing two employees. May It was fiscally painful, but it had to be done. That was the message as supervisors took action to protect the county against accessibility litigation. The Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 (Ole Olsen was ab- sent) at its April 15 meeting to hire Gilda Puente Peters Architects to prepare an Americans With Disabilities Act serf-evaluation and tran- sition plan. The price of the plan is not to exceed $299,560. The agree- ment does not include reim- bursable expenses such as lodging, per diem, printing and the like, which are ex- pected to cost $29,865.50. County Administrative Of- ficer Jack Ingstad said, "When I first came here, I saw this (ADA compliance) as a huge liability. To spend this kind of money for a plan, you really have to con- vince me it's needed. I and (Risk Manager) Kelly Stane are convinced this is the best investment the county can make." Sunday, May 11, the Plumas County Sheriffs Of- fice reported a double homi- cide at 143 Ald0n Drive in Chester. The victims were Jenny Carrigan, 18, a Chester High School student, and Steven Furtado, 18, from Willows. A suspect, Reyes Carrillo, 18, also a Chester High stu- dent and Carrigan's former boyfriend, has been taken into custody. He was sched- uled to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon, May 13. Carrigan's and Furtado's bodies were discovered at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a press release from the sheriff's office. Carrigan's mother, Joane (Jodie) Carrigan, discovered the scene and immediately called 911.

Lie. #453927 (s30) 283-zo3s was stored in quarter- to haft- pound amounts -- well over the one-ounce limit needed to legally prove that the pos- session is for the purpose of selling. This prompted the inves- tigative sergeant to comment, "This represents a significant commercial operation." The warrant was served af- ter repair work was done on the residence for a water leak. The people doing the work became suspicious that the residence contained illegal drugs. Hagwood noted that, curi- ously, Gale denied owner- ship of the coins but declined to comment on the cannabis products. The PCSO also reported that Gale worked at Feather River College in the mainte- nance department. f for 2009?
