Business Scene for the week of 2/12/20


The Joker and Jester Comedy Tour, featuring Jake Daniels and Tony Dijamco, widely considered two of the best comics touring America for the past five years with their comical approach to various issues affecting daily life, will be performing in Quincy at the Main Street Sports Bar & Lounge Friday, Feb. 14, at 8 p.m. Jake has become an award winning film maker, actor, producer and radio show host in addition to his comedy career. Tony has been entertaining his audience in and out of America using his sardonic sense of humor coupled with eclectic performance style. Since high school, Tony has engaged audiences with high levels of success, often entertaining sell out crowds.


We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Susan Terry is coordinating a 9-game singles cribbage tournament at the Main Street Sports Bar in downtown Quincy every Sunday. Play starts at 1 p.m., but for those wanting to learn how to play the game, lessons will be offered beginning at 11 a.m. It’s an $11 buy-in, $10 of that goes to the tournament winners and the other buck gets split into a couple of side pots which Susan will explain prior to play.



Plumas County’s only locally owned and operated propane company, High Sierra Gas, will be moving to a new location on Delleker Road in Portola around the first of March if not sooner. In the meantime, owner and manager Jack McKeehan says they will continue to serve their residential, commercial and industrial customers in Portola, Quincy and Mohawk and Sierra Valley from its present location on Sierra Avenue in Portola.


John Roman, CPA and Kathleen Toland, M.A., M.F.T. have closed their shared offices in Portola and Quincy and have moved them to a more central location between those communities. You will now find them at the office complex located at the intersection of Highway 70 and 89 in Blairsden. John has been a CPA for 36 years handling both business and individual accounting services and taxes. He also has extensive experience with real estate developments and homeowner associations.


Kathleen specializes in individual, marriage and family therapy, psychotherapy and counseling. She accepts all major insurance including Blue Cross and Medi-Cal.


  Levi and Patty Pence are celebrating their sixth anniversary this month at Hi- Tech Frame & Finish on Industrial Way in Quincy. The collision repair professionals have a stellar reputation for their body shop and paint department. Whether it is a car, truck or recreational vehicle, no job is either too big or too small.


Derek and Naomi Vaughn, owners of Papa Murphy’s Take and Bake Pizza in Quincy, are sharing the love with a special Heartbaker pizza (you guessed it, shaped like a heart it is) for Valentines Day. The little play on words with the pizza’s name is perfect for a romantic dinner on this very romantic day.


Hard to believe, but yes it’s time once again to begin focusing our attention on tourism this summer in Plumas County and the ever-so-important impact it has on our local economy.


With that in mind, we are once again working on this year’s annual Plumas County Visitors Guide. The full-color, high-quality magazine is packed full of information detailing virtually everything our county has to offer to both visitors and locals alike. Some 90,000 copies are distributed free at hundreds of locations in our region throughout 2020.

As a way of extending its reach to entice more visitors to our very special niche in California, and as an added value to our advertisers, we also post the entire magazine in a user-friendly format on our website, The electronic version of the visitors guide gets hundreds of views monthly throughout the season.

Local business owners as well as service and hospitality providers should continue to consider this informative publication an annual “must-buy” advertising investment.
