Business Scene for the week of 12/22/2010

daily newspaper deliveries…

Subscribers to the San Francisco Chronicle in the greater Quincy, Graeagle and Portola areas have a new delivery person. He’s Steve Carr, a longtime resident of Indian Valley. Steve isn’t new to the business: He started delivering the Chron in Indian Valley after the Sac Bee —which he delivered there for some 25 years — dropped the area a few years back. He said he is happy to pick up this new territory and looks forward to adding to the Chronicle’s existing local subscriber base. By the way, some of you might remember Steve when he operated Plumas County’s one and only ice cream vending truck in 1996-97. Currently, he also owns and operates Charity Vending, a candy vending business benefiting four important national charities. Back to the paper delivery: If you have questions, or problems getting the Chronicle or want to subscribe call Steve at 284-6761.

For further clarification: Randy Scurry offers home delivery of the Sacramento Bee and Reno Gazette in the Quincy-Portola areas. For questions and subscriptions to those two newspapers email Randy at mynewspaper@ymail.com or call 927-7030.

Readers in the greater Chester, Lake Almanor and Westwood areas get their SF Chronicle delivered by Mike and Sandra Hardigan. They can be reached at 284-7908.


santa is bearing free gifts

Before he begins making his rounds delivering presents, Santa will be at the Beckwourth Tavern restaurant Friday, Dec. 24, with free gifts for children up to age 12 from 5-8 p.m. Be sure to bring your camera, ‘cause we’re told Santa is up to the photo op!

The restaurant’s new owners, Christina and Travis Pruett, suggest you make reservations for their gala New Year’s Eve party, which features a full course dinner and karaoke. Dinners are served Thursday through Monday, from 5 - 9 p.m., and the bar opens at 4 p.m.


chance to win free bowling

During the holiday break why not take the family bowling? In Quincy at La Sierra Lanes, they’ve made it just a little more interesting. For every strike made when the head pin is colored, now through Jan. 2, you win a free game. Certainly sounds like a fun and potentially rewarding challenge to me!
