Outpost’s new owners
FEHRMAN MORTUARY CLOSES
With the recent and sudden passing of Funeral Director John Fehrman, the family has decided it is necessary to close Fehrman Mortuary’s Quincy, Greenville, Chester, Portola and Westwood offices temporarily while they regroup from their devastating loss. However, they will continue to serve the families they are currently supporting through their time of need.
MEAT BONANZA AT EVERGREEN
It only happens twice a year — Evergreen Market’s Meat Bonanza. Store manager Scott McCallum says this semi-annual bulk meat sale this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5 and 6, is the ideal time to stock up your freezer for the winter with this incredible pricing. They have also added the new Coca-Cola Freestyle Touch Screen soda-dispensing machine. It offers more then 80 choices of flavors for the user to pick and choose from, pairing perfectly with their deli sandwiches and fresh salads. The supermarket is in Greenville.

Diners will enjoy some great food coupled with spectacular views of Indian Valley. Note: Elisa serves her special Philly cheese steak sandwich on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

CORRECTION ON USING TERM BARBER
When I mentioned in this column that Aileen Tavernia is cutting men’s hair at the Downtown Barber Shop in Quincy, I referred to her as a barber. She is actually a licensed cosmetologist, not a licensed barber. I now know the difference.
