Bar’s new owners
Karen Powell and Stephen Lodrig are the new owners of Main Street Sports Bar and Lounge in Quincy. The two moved here from Long Beach because they wanted to get away from the city life to enjoy a quiet atmosphere and become part of a smaller community. Their hobbies include fostering rescued animals, hiking, camping and prospecting for gold. Karen owned a mini storage business and has worked as a cocktail waitress and bartender; Stephen was an accountant for “Last Man Standing” at Fox Television. The former owners, James and Stacy Huffmon, are moving to Reno to open a Pizza Factory restaurant.Photo by Holly Buus
