CHP REPORT No job is too big or too small Rolling Fog, Jan. 23 Track Broad, 37, of Beck- wourth was traveling southi bound on A23 at a speed less than 65 mph. It had rained earlier and the roadway was wet. There was also fog present with approximately 1,000 feet of visibility. Broad allowed her vehicle to drift off the pavement to her left as she entered a curve. She then over-corrected and she allowed her vehicle to swerve across both lanes. The 2003 Ford SUV then ran off the east side of the roadway where it rolled on- to its right side. She and her son were un- harmed and they were able to climb out of the SUV on their own. Rocked and Rolled, Jan. 24 Keith Smets, 59, of Maga- lia was traveling eastbound on SR70, east of the Ele- phant Butte Tunnel, at a stated speed of 40 mph. Due to his being sleepy and fatigued, Smets, allowed his vehicle to drift off the south roadway edge. The 1989 Ford pickup trav- eled along the shoulder briefly until the right front of the vehicle struck the rock mountainside. The vehicle continued along the shoulder and struck another rock. It then rolled over onto the driver's side, rotate 180 de- grees, and came to rest fac- ing westbound in the east- bound lane. Passenger Duane Hudson, 20, also of Magalia escaped through the passenger door and helped Smets escape through the windshield with the help of a passing mo- torist. Neither man was hurt during the collision but Smuts sustained minor lac- erations to his forehead and right hand while exiting the vehicle. On His Own, Jan. 24 Auston Linford, 31, of Tay- lorsville was driving a 2000 Subaru westbound on SR-70, east of SR-89 at a high rate of speed. As he negotiated a curve in the roadway he lost con- trol of his vehicle, which traversed.out of control in a southwesterly direction across the eastbound lane, where it left the roadway. The rear of the vehicle col- lided with a tree and the force of the impact caused it to spin so the front collided with another tree. Linford made his way to the highway, and allegedly fled .fl3e ~c, eae .... ,; He was given a ride to a lo, cation in Crescent Mills. He was described as having an alcoholic-beverage-like smell coming from his per- son. The investigation took the CHP to two different loca- tions searching for Linford with ao luck. The CHP re- cently received some contact from him and the investiga- tion is ongoing. Based upon evidence at the scene, the CHP deter- mined Linford wasn't wear- ing a seatbelt and likely re- ceived some-injuries to his face and head. The CHP encourages any- one with information re- garding this collision to con- tact the Quincy area office at 283-1100. Slow Slide, Jan. 25 Diane Goni, 47, of Meadow Valley was driving a '99 Sub- aru eastbound on Bucks Lake Road at a stated speed of 20-25 mph. It was snowing and the roadway was covered in ice and snow. The car began to slide into the westbound lane. Goni unsuccessfully at- tempted to gain control of the vehicle by turning to the left and then the right. The car spun in a counter clockwise direction as it crossed into the westbound lane. It then left the north road- way edge and struck a snow berm while facing west- bound. - The collision caused the car to overturnand strike a metal signpost. The Subaru then rolled one and a quarter times, coming to rest on its left side on the north shoulder facing westbound. Goni was uninjured and was able to free herself from the vehicle.

Update Darold DeCoe, owner of the Morning Thunder Caf6, will appear in court again Friday, Feb. 6. His case has been delayed considerably by various health complications with the lawyers who have de- fended him. DeCoe was arraigned in June on charges of trans- porting methamphetamine = across non-contiguous coun- ties, possessing a gun while transporting meth, possess- ing meth for sale and pos- sessing meth for sale within 1,000 feet of a school. An additional charge was later added when he alleged- ly tested positive for a con- trolled substance while out on bail. Lunch money thief Joshua Sebold Staff Writer Plumas Unified School Dis- trict employee John Rix was recently arrested for alleged- ly embezzling school lunch money. Plumas county Sheriff's Office Investigator Jeremy Bentley commented Rix .was suspected of hoarding checks from parents to the Pioneer Elementary School lunch program in his truck, while also allegedly pocketing any cash he received for the pro- gram. Bentley said the suspect probably began the illegal ac- tivity sometime in the fall. A call to the Quincy High School cafeteria, where Rix also worked, revealed he: wasn't employed "at the mo- ment." PUSD Superintendent Glen Harris mentioned there was no loss of money to the school district, as Rix promptly paid it all back. Deputy District Attorney David Hollister was pleased to hear restitution had been paid to the school, but said Rix would be arraigned on a felony charge of embezzle- ment, with an enhancement that would make him ineligi- ble for public office if convict- ed. Hollister said returning the allegedly stolen money was a positive outcome, but a crime had still occurred. % % e~e % ADOPT, A.PET Loving Homes Wanted Dixie Daisy Olivia These three kittys are all about 6-7 mos. old.
