Shannika Dao took an interesting path to become Plumas County’s newest dentist — both professionally and geographically.

The Jamaican-born Dao moved to Florida with her family when she was 16. She attended college and nursing school in the Sunshine State.

“I always wanted to be a physician,” the 37-year-old Dao said during an interview in her office at the Plumas District Hospital dental clinic last week, “but I needed to work.” Add a comment

The Quincy Design Review Committee approved a building design March 12 presented by Cornerstone Learning owners Tommy and Carol Miles. The learning center will be built in downtown Quincy on the site of the former Great Northern building that burned during a December 2014 fire.

“We’re excited to finally be moving with this,” Tommy Miles said.

Though the design is a go, Miles is still waiting on litigation involving insurance companies to be resolved. He said he hopes construction will begin this spring.
