Business Scene for the week of 10/11/17

New owners, new location 
Andrea Murana and Bobby Yegge bought Healthy Bodies Community Gym in Portola from Cindy and Rock Wood. At the same time, they moved the business a few doors down the road at Delleker to the building formerly home to Longfellow Building Supply. Andrea, a Plumas Co. sheriff’s deputy since 2001, was also a personal trainer and manager at the gym when the owners were absent. Pictured here with customer Kevin LaPlant, Andrea said the new location helped them expand the facility with lots of new weight training and cardio equipment. Andrea added that they have trainers available for consulting and offer a variety of classes including yoga, zumba and spin circuits. Members have 24/7 access to the gym. Photo by Roger Nielsen

PET SITTER DONATES BEDS TO SHELTER

Mimi Garner of Sierra Adventures Pet Sitting Service donated eight homemade dog beds to the Quincy Animal Shelter. She said she made the beds to help the shelter so they could be placed on top of the cots for a little more warmth and comfort while the pets await adoption, at which time the beds can go with the pet to its new home. Mimi, who loves to sew and pet sit, hopes to donate another six beds later this month. To learn more about her pet sitting services and to read her reviews visit rover.com

CLOSE LOOK AT CANADIAN ROCKIES

Lorraine Hanson, proprietor and chef of Hanson’s Homemade Pies, Bread and Custom Cooking on Nelson Street in Taylorsville, just returned from a week-long horse pack trip with her brother Frank Hanson in Banff, Canada, and said “It’s the only way to see the Rockies!” She’s back at work and ready for your Thanksgiving pre-order pie orders. This year Lorraine is offering pumpkin, pecan, apple and French peach pies. Lorraine is considering keeping her summer hours Tuesday through Sunday. Besides her delicious pies, she offers a selection of pastries and Quiche in the mornings and salads, sandwiches, wraps and soups (in winter) for lunch.
