A LITTLE CLARIFICATION NEEDED
Last week I reported Dr. Farzad Sabet is a “new orthopedic doc in Chester.” We now understand Dr. Sabet is a physiatrist, not an orthopedist. He is an M.D. specializing in non-surgical musculoskeletal treatment, which is pain management utilizing a variety of modalities. It is common for these professionals to work with orthopedic surgeons during the treatment of spinal problems who are attempting to avoid surgical intervention. Dr. Sabet is with the Shasta Orthopaedic, working in its Chester office.

MORE ANNIVERSARIES TO HONOR…
Two years ago, Steve and Hope Smith opened Club Roost, a nightclub in downtown Quincy. With its front lounge, The Retro Room, patrons can relax and enjoy their favorite libation surrounded by nostalgic pictures and memorabilia from performers like Dean Martin and The Rat Pack. Sports enthusiasts can venture downstairs to the Backdoor Sports Bar to let their hair down in an atmosphere fitting the name — eight big screen televisions, pool table, darts, shuffleboard and, of course, cribbage boards.
x It was just a year ago when Sheryl Flint re-located her Indian Valley business, A Room Full of Yarn, to Margie Meeker’s Country Style Salon.
x Richard McCutcheon, the Indian Valley-based businessman and author, is celebrating his 10th anniversary with Richard’s Gifts. He sells an assortment of products engraved with your photographs. This past year he has added personalized greeting cards and framed photos.
