Nakoma’s new panoramic deck

         Not that Plumas County was suffering a lack of beautiful vistas, but if you’re one of those people for whom a drink is not a drink without a beautiful view, you need to check out the new panoramic deck at Nakoma Golf Resortand Spa. Providing picture-perfect views of Eureka and Penman peaks and perched over the majestic first fairway of the Dragon golf course, the massive 1600-square-foot deck is the perfect spot for a refreshing libation or something off the lunch, bar or dinner menus. Stay tuned for “Music on the Terrace,” a summer concert series that will feature the bluegrass musings of the Lost Sierra Ramblers on Friday, July 12.

            Next up for MusicLand’s The Gift of Music concert series this Saturday, July 13, from 3 to 10 p.m., is The Great Blues Luau, with blues music, roasted pig and hula dancers. It’s at Downtown Farms (behind the sheriff’s substation) in Greenville. Ken Donnell says this is a family-friendly event that includes a picnic potluck and live music by Rube and the Rhythm Rockers, the Allen Rigg Trio and the Artful Horns.

lots of prizes for ‘finding waldo’

            Where’s Waldo? In Quincy, of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 25 different businesses this July. From Quincy Hot Spot to Pet Country, Waldo figures will be hidden in local business establishments. Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.

            Participants can pick up a Find Waldo passport at Epilog Books. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at 10 or more sites can bring their passports back to Epilog Books to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at 20 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to entry in a grand prize drawing during the celebration party July 31 at Epilog Books, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

            Waldo’s American publisher, Candlewick Press, is once again teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and 265 independent bookstores all across the country, including Epilog Books, for some hide and seek fun as well as to encourage communities to patronize their local businesses.

            Epilog owner Christine Crawford says there is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July.
