Business Scene for 11/4/2009

    Mary K. Shelters has opened her law practice on Peninsula Drive at Lake Almanor. She has been a licensed attorney since 1979, but decided to change careers when she and husband Blake, a local architect, moved here from Southern California six years ago. After witnessing what a family member in another state had to deal with when they filed for bankruptcy protection, Mary decided to hang out her legal shingle once again to help others through the maze of the current bankruptcy system. She can be reached at 596-3004.

    Longtime Quincy attorney Jan Klement will be the featured speaker at an estate planning presentation hosted by the Quincy branch of Plumas Bank.

It’s Thursday, Nov. 19 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Cathy said refreshments will be served.

    It’s that time of year when John Papenhausen and crew at Mohawk Trading Company in Greenville will once again usher in the Thanksgiving and Christmas spirit with free turkeys. Beginning Nov. 16 and continuing each week until Christmas, three turkeys will be given away weekly. All you have to do is stop by and enter for a chance to be one of the lucky winners.

This marks year six for Mike and Karen Kibble as owners of one of the county’s oldest businesses, Quincy Drug Store.
