SCHWAB’S NEW ASSISTANT MANAGER
Jared Bivens is now a part of Quincy’s Les Schwab Tire’s management team with his recent promotion to the full service tire store’s assistant manager. He was born and raised in Quincy, graduated from Quincy High in 2005 and began his career with the independently owned retail tire chain five years ago. After working at the Quincy store for a year he transferred to a Les Schwab store in Oroville where he spent the next three years before returning to Quincy last year. Ron and Stephanie Horton, owners of Les Schwab/Horton Tire operation on Highway 70 near the Plumas Pines Shopping Center, said that Jared’s qualifications made his promotion an easy decision. He is certified by the Tire Industry Association for commercial truck tires and holds a Level-3 certification in brake and alignments.
SMOKIN’ BROTHERS BBQ GRILLS
Don and Dee Dee Driscoll tell us they now carry the complete line of Smokin’ Brothers Wood Pellet barbecue grills at Quincy Hot Spot. They are designed and manufactured by a family business in Missouri. These units can be used as a grill, smoker or as an oven providing consistent cooking every time. They cook with indirect heat preventing flare-ups. A convection fan circulates air around the food and as a result, there is no need for a rotisserie. The digital thermostat control maintains a constant temperature from 180 to 375 degrees and a high setting for temperatures above 400. The grills come in a variety of sizes — from backyard family barbecues to competition size and anything in between. Dee Dee swears that once you go pellet — you will never go back.

The two ladies added that they plan to reopen at a new location on Lawrence Street in Quincy in October 2020. They will continue to offer classes through mid-September adding that if you have a current class card and wind up having some classes left on it, they will return the unused funds due whenever you desire.
