STARTING OVER AFTER A FIRE
This is an update for those that know and use Bill Tate’s services, the owner and operator of Bill Tate Spa Repairs. He thought it was important to let everyone know that he is still in business although his service call schedule was tragically altered; he lost his home and shop as the result of a wildfire that destroyed everything he owned — his trucks, phone, records, client files, tools, client list — everything! Fortunately, when Bill saw the flames he knew he had just minutes to escape and he did with just his dogs. But now he’s back in business repairing spas and can be reached by text at (775) 846-0474 or email [email protected].

WORK BEGINS ON PORTOLA EATERY

The eatery’s owner, Saralyn Densinger, says she expects to be open by October.
THE CONSTRUCTION IN EAST QUINCY
With a September opening planned, construction is moving right along for the future home of Grocery Outlet on Highway 70 in East Quincy next to La Sierra Lanes.
And right across the highway you’ll see that the building that most recently housed Dave and Helen Reynolds’ Eastside Pubic House and prior to that Dave Gott’s Sports ‘N Shorts has been recently razed. The property’s new owners have begun construction of a new building, which will be occupied by an O’Reilly Auto Parts store. The company opened its first store in 1957 in Missouri and now has more than 5,000 retail stores across the country.
KERBY ART SALE IN AUGUST
