quincy thrift is open again

Certainly didn’t take Traci Turner long to regroup and restock (thanks in a huge way to the very generous folks throughout the greater Quincy and Plumas County area) her business, Quincy Thrift, after it was totally destroyed in the recent downtown fire. She is now in her new location on Main Street across from the post office complex that was home for many years to La Casa Bella. The store is once again packed with new and gently used items that include clothes, jewelry, furniture and household items.

watershed field trip donations

Plumas Satellite owner Gerald Hitson has come up with a new way to give back to his community in celebration of his first anniversary as an authorized dealer for Dish TV and dishNet high-speed Internet. During the upcoming Groundhog Fever Fest, Gerald will donate $20 to the sixth-grade watershed field trip for every new customer that signs up for service. Plumas Satellite originally opened in 1989 and Gerald’s goal this year is to expand the company, hire more employees and offer custom low-voltage wire management.
