The Greenhorn Ranch just east of Quincy near Spring Garden, is having its final concert in their summer concert series this Friday, Aug. 16, featuring the Cripple Creek Band at 8 p.m. The band has a unique sound that tastefully combines country, American and southern rock music influenced by artists including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Eagles, Hank Williams Jr., John Mellencamp, Travis Tritt, Eric Church, Merle Haggard, Blackberry Smoke, Chris Stapleton, Tom Petty and The Band. The CCB creates their own southern roots style of music that leaves you wanting more.

  Don’t forget, you can also enjoy the barbecued chicken and rib dinner before the show! Reservations are required for both events, which can be purchased as a package or separately, call 283-0930.


The deadline for the 2020 Plumas Lassen telephone directory is just around the corner, Friday, Aug. 23. This is the only locally produced — and most cost-effective — phone book that covers all of Plumas and Lassen counties and parts of Sierra County. For the past 25 years, the staff at Feather Publishing has been providing the region with the most complete and comprehensive listing of residential and business listings in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use format. Yes, it’s a resource directory that is still used daily by folks throughout our region.

The book can also include your cell phone number — all you have to do is provide it to us by calling or stopping by one of our offices or mailing us the information.

Some 42,000 phone books are hand-delivered to homes and businesses throughout the region, primarily by local students and youth groups. The delivery has become a major fundraiser for many of these groups. Since that very first edition in 1995, these groups have earned more than $220,000 delivering the Plumas-Lassen Connection. If you think of it, be sure to thank the advertisers in the yellow pages because a big chunk of that advertising expense goes right back to help our local youth!

If you own a retail business or offer a service, this should still be considered an important investment in your overall marketing plan. Our professional advertising consultants are available to design a customized ad package that will market and promote your services in this powerful print and online package on our two popular and highly visited websites:lassennews.com. and plumasnews.com.

If you haven’t already been contacted by one of our advertising sales consultants please call Holly or Kelli in Quincy at 283-0800; for Portola, Blairsden and Graeagle, call Roger at 832-4646; and in Chester, Greenville and Westwood, Chelsea or Patty can be reached at 258-3115.

Again, these run as space is available and not necessarily in the actual month of the anniversary — but certainly still worth noting:

Seven years ago Quincy native Johnny Mansell took the reins at Town and Country Properties in Quincy from longtime owners Denny and Faith Swanson. Johnny, a proud father of two who is very active in the community and past president of Rotary, joined the company in 2006 and earned his broker’s license in 2008.

It’s the lucky 13th year for Ian Upton with Universal Electric in Chester. He has been a full-service, licensed commercial and residential electrical contractor for 19 years. And, with the looming planned power outages, it’s also good to know he sells and installs and services Generac home and office generators.

Tim and Marcy DeMartile, and Evans and Kathy DeMartile have taken exceptional care of their customers’ automotive needs for the past 19 years at the family owned and operated DeMartile Automotive in Quincy.
