Contrary to a letter to the editor published in this newspaper lamenting the closure of a pizzeria, Sharon Strecke from Mountain Valley Pizza in Greenville wanted us to know that they are open for business. The business did close for a couple of weeks due to staffing issues, but they are back open serving their customers daily beginning at 11:30 a.m.


Brent Baily

With Sean Conry having to spend more time with his instructional duties at Feather River College, he has added some highly qualified new talent to help run the Whitehawk Restaurant at the Whitehawk Ranch Lodge near Clio.

Brent Bailey has assumed the executive chef’s responsibilities at the restaurant. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, most recently Brent was the chef at Good Luck Restaurant in New York.

Katie Lombardo

Katie Lombardo is the other addition to the team at Whitehawk. Her responsibilities include handling the “front of the house” duties and the bar. Katie is a trained chef and mixologist with a Level One sake sommelier certificate, which makes sense since she owned a sushi restaurant in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.

By the way, they are open daily from 4–9 p.m.; with happy hour 4–5:30 except on Monday when it’s happy hour all day long with food and drink specials. Oh, and dining on the porch is dog friendly!


The Collins Pine Co. in Chester is pleased to announce the appointment of Niel Fischer as its forest

Niel Fischer

manager. He brings a wide range of experience and professional development that will complement the staff and their efforts in managing their resources and log procurement in Chester, a company spokesman said. He graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a bachelor of science in forest management, has been a registered professional forester since 1992, and practiced private, industrial and non-industrial forestry for 18 years.

To augment his forestry education and experience, Niel also graduated from law school and was admitted to the California Bar in 2004. He worked with the California Forestry Association representing the industry in forestry, water, environmental and biomass air quality issues. He has spent the last 13 years with PG&E working on their Vegetation Management Program.


The Drunk Brush owners Riccardo and Wendy Jacobus tell us the fun continues with their summer entertainment series as Lance & Friends perform this Friday, July 19, beginning at 6 p.m. Lucky Star takes the stage next Wednesday, July 24.


Greenhorn Ranch continues their Friday summer concert series with a performance by the incredibly talented Stephanie Quayle, a newly inducted member of Country Music Television’s Next Women of Country. Music and dancing starts at 8 p.m., but I’d suggest you get their early and take advantage of their amazing Friday night barbecue dinner and make a night of it. Heck, why not book a cabin and make a weekend out of it.
