continuing best wishes…

Our congratulations to these business and professionals who, thanks in no small part to you, their customers and clients, continue to rack up years of doing business in Plumas County. And they are all quick to share some of those proceeds with their communities. So remember: Think local first!

Chester’s Sharon Henry begins her 41st year in business. Although the business name has changed over the years, Lassen Gift Co. continues to offer a gift store stocked with jewelry, clothing, glassware, infant and youth educational toys and much more, including the year-round Christmas shop. You will also find an old-fashioned soda fountain at its Main Street, Chester location.

Richard Stockton begins his 17th year as the area’s State Farm Insurance agent. From his Quincy office, he and his well-trained staff handle their clients’ insurance and financial needs throughout the region. Richard actually began his career with State Farm in 1988, after graduating from Chico State. In addition to auto, home, business, life and health insurance, State Farm also offers complete banking services, including investment products.

The Ranchito, nestled amongst the towering pines in east Quincy, will soon have refrigerators, microwaves, irons and ironing boards in every room. John and Tracy Wixted, now in their second year as innkeepers and owners, said while it’s a big investment, it’s what customers have been asking for. Next year, they said, it’s more remodeling and painting — “never-ending but well worth it!”

Owner Moirag Swing marks her fifth year with Crazyblooms, a full service florist and gift shop on Bonta Street in downtown Blairsden.

 Jennifer Ludvigson and Christie Brawley are celebrating their second year conducting Zumba classes, which they call a “Latin-inspired, booty-shaking, calorie-blasting exercise.” The two also teach Zumbatomic for kids, both at Feather River Fitness.

Attorney Mary K. Shelters completed her third year practicing in Plumas County from her offices in Greenville. Mary, a lawyer for 33 years, specializes in bankruptcy protection and negotiates settlements with unsecured creditors for those clients who cannot protect their assets in bankruptcy.
