TENSION AND STRESS WORKSHOP

Certified instructor Averil Kimble is offering a special workshop dealing with stress and tension this Saturday, July 28, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Quincy Wellness Center in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center. She says this workshop will teach participants how to release tension most commonly caused by job stress, financial problems, accidents, natural disasters or violence.

NEW OWNERS OF ADA’S PLACE

Jeanne and Kiran Rana, Bay Area residents who have been frequent visitors to Quincy and Plumas County since the early 1990s, purchased Ada’s Place last January. Immediately after the sale they hired Corinne West as the property’s innkeeper. She is a local resident and longtime friend of the former owners, Mike Nellor and his late wife Valerie. Corinne said her goal is to continue blending the former owners’ vision of what they have done with these quaint cottages — that are nestled amongst lush gardens in downtown Quincy — in check with the new owners’ energy.

NEW PRODUCT HAS HUGE POTENTIAL

Ken Donnell is excited to share with you the newest addition to his Greenville business, MusicLand. It’s called The 2 Mic, mini-flex microphones specifically designed for use on both classical and flamenco guitars. Ken, who repairs musical instruments, has spent the last 30 years very successfully designing an array of special microphones for musical instruments that normally have not used speakers.

The 2 Mic, his latest creation with a patent soon pending, is now in use by musicians around the world. Recently, Adam del Monte, a professor at USC’s renowned Thornton School of Music, and acknowledged worldwide as a rare talent in flamenco and classical guitar genres, performed at a concert at the Methodist Church in Greenville using the The 2 Mic system and subsequently gave the product his personal endorsement.

Ken has been coming to Greenville since the 1990s and became a fulltime resident 18 years ago. He loves the county and wants to see it prosper. Ken plans to go into mass production in Indian Valley with this new niche product stating he is already on target to create 4 – 5 new jobs immediately, producing 30 units a month and expects both numbers to grow significantly in the next couple of years.
