Pharmacist Karen Schad tells us Quincy Pharmacy is now open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Additionally, the pharmacy now provides immunizations and, of course, their free prescription delivery service within a five mile radius also includes Saturdays.  By the way, there is a terrific selection of gift merchandise inside of the pharmacy on Main Street that includes unique gifts, many of which are handmade, along with a huge selection of essential oils and a variety of decorative signs with fun and inspiring messages.


Mark Rode has closed his Portola store at the corner of Hwy 70 and Gulling Street, Nu 2 Yu, for some remodeling.  Besides an interior refreshing that includes, of course, carpet cleaning, the massive project also includes a new roof and a new heating system. Look for the store to reopen April 1.



As she does every year during the month of January, Lisa Forcino took the time to complete her required annual inventory assessment along with restocking and refreshing her popular Crescent Mills gift store, Crescent Country. Now she is set to reopen on Feb. 13 for the upcoming season, which I might add, is perfect timing for us guys looking for that special gift for our someone special on Valentine’s Day!


On Saturday, Feb. 16, Pachuca Productions presents an evening of breakup songs and tales of romantic woe at the Main Street Sports Bar & Lounge in Quincy. Love will tear us apart — again: The Anti Valentine’s Show will also feature an open mic with the best sad sack story and best broken heart song, original or cover, with prizes for both. Lounge owner Karen Powell will split the proceeds of this fundraiser with Pumas Community Radio station KQNY and Pachua’s April show, Serious Midnight.



Bob and Melissa Price are celebrating their third year as owners of the Les Schwab Tire Center located at Delleker near Portola. Some of the changes already made and planned include an increased focus on training to keep ahead of the curve on new vehicles; the addition of new, state-of-the-art alignment equipment; and they’ve expanded their 30-minute oil changes with the addition of staff. The couple said they are looking forward to new challenges with an eye on continuing to grow their business with exceptional value and the Schawb Company’s impeccable service.


The Westwood Chamber of Commerce will have its annual membership mixer Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. This time-honored event will be held at Mom’s Old Mill Café who will serve an endless supply of soup, salad and potato bar where you can load that spud from a huge selection of toppings and, of course, beer and wine. The Chamber is requesting RSVPs by Feb. 24; call 256-2456. If, by chance, you are currently not a member of the Chamber this might be just the right time to join!
