On Saturday, April 21, from 1 to 4 p.m., several experts from the building industry will be on hand for the first-ever free and informative Spring Into Building expo at Mt. Lassen Log & Timber Homes in Chester. Owners JR and Windy Thompson and Kerri White will have corporate reps from Andersen Windows and Doors to answer any questions about new construction and replacement options. Reps from Perma-Chink Wood Care Systems will answer any questions about their stains and finishing products. Officials from Plumas Bank will be available to discuss financing options. Kerri said there will also be coupons and discounts provided by several local businesses for the products they sell that tie into building a new home or office available that day. Other topics that will be covered include home, garage, shed and outbuilding packages and design options and the building coordination process and budgeting for the project.

her french toast gets my vote

Stopped by the Beckwith Tavern the other day for a business meeting and breakfast. A frequent diner at the restaurant highly recommended I try the French toast so I did but in fairness I have to disclose I am not a French toast kind of guy. All I can say is wow! Restaurant owner/chef Valerie Maher said she uses some “secret ingredients” but when asked she wouldn’t even begin to give me a clue and I certainly understand why. The restaurant is located on Highway 70 in Beckwourth and is currently open for breakfast and lunch (plans include dinner in the future) and it’s worth the stop!
