Business Scene for the week of 10/6/2010

After taking some time off for health reasons, John T. Bergstrand, D.C. has reopened his chiropractic in a new location at 573 Jackson St. in Quincy across from Ada’s Place. John offices were on Central Avenue, but said his new location is more relaxing and offers his patients more privacy.

Randy Scurry, who delivers the Reno Gazette to Quincy, Graeagle, Portola and surrounding areas, has made arrangements to begin distributing the Sacramento Bee to those same areas in the not-to-distant future. But first, Randy said he needs to meet a minimum number of subscribers so he is asking those interested in Bee home delivery to call him at 530-927-7030 or email mynewspaper@yahoo.com

Graeagle attorney David J. Heaslett will once again share his estate planning expertise at a free seminar Oct. 14, 5:30-6:30 p.m., at the Mohawk Community Resource Center at the intersection of Highways 70 and 89. Dave will spend the hour discussing wills, trusts, advance care directives and probate. He will also be available to answer any estate questions you might have.

Two items of interest from Ayoobs in Quincy: First, they are having a huge sale on Skechers shoes for infants, toddlers and children — every pair in stock is a whopping 40 percent off! Secondly, Cherie Whipple won Imelda’s Shoe Search during the Girls Night Out promotion and received a pair of shoes courtesy of Ayoobs and other downtown merchants.

Let’s start our anniversary acknowledgments this week by recognizing the success of two very hard-working and knowledgeable individuals, Ken Muir and Dick Biri. They have owned and operated Dickens Drilling based in East Quincy for 19 years! I can’t help but wonder just how many wells they’ve drilled during this near two decade period?

  • Also celebrating 19 years in business this month is Margie Meeker at Country Style Family Hair Care in Greenville. Couple of quick reminders about her establishment: Margie has a barber on duty Monday, Tuesday and Saturday who welcomes walk-ins. With Halloween just around the corner, or any other special occasion for that matter, Margie wants to remind you about their vast array of costumes and accessories.
  • Dennis and Ginny Hargrave have owned and operated the Pine Shack Frosty for a decade now, building a reputation for their friendly service. It’s noteworthy that they continue to respect the time-honored adage of this landmark Chester eatery: “If Mt. Lassen erupts while you are ordering, your food is free.”
  • Satisfying customers has been a trademark for Mike and Linda Gamberg, who are celebrating 14 years with Yagotawana Outfitters. This Quincy business offers custom embroidery and screen-printing services. Their Chromablast photo-ready digital printing system enables them to put photographs on any fabric surface.
  • Chris W. Anderson DC is celebrating his 10th year in business serving the chiropractic needs of his clients from his offices in Portola and Quincy. Dr. Anderson utilizes numerous techniques to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.
  • Richard Caley, owner of Caley Electric in Cromberg, is celebrating his sixth year in business. Richard does electrical for residential or commercial and that no job is too small.
  • Sierra Coffee and Beverage is celebrating its seventh anniversary serving Plumas and Lassen counties.  The three owners, Michael Shannon, Victor & Linda Hursh, started by offering coffee and coffee making systems to businesses and have expanded it to include a line of vending products and bottled water service.
  • Lana Beal, owner of Always Sunny Tanning and Nails, celebrates her business’ fourth anniversary.  Lana offers manicures, pedicures and tanning. She also carries an assortment of women’s clothing, summer shoes, sunglasses, lotions, soaps and scrubs.
