Business Scene for the week of 1/25/17


James Machado and family will soon be opening a new restaurant in Greenville in the building formerly occupied by Lupines. The family restaurant, Cherrywood Café & Grill, will open in February for breakfast and lunch. It will also offer a selection of gourmet coffee and teas. The lunch menu will satisfy even the most discriminating palette with dishes like pulled pork sandwiches along with other freshly smoked meats and even veggie burgers. James said many of the products he’ll use in the restaurant, like barbecue sauce, rubs and honey, will be locally sourced. This spring watch for them to be doing barbecues every other Saturday night. “I want to provide another option for a place where the community can gather. We’ve spent a lot of time asking questions, listening and formulating what we think the community wants to see with the opening of this café and grill,” James said.

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. According to the American Veterinarian Medical Association more than 85 percent of dogs and cats that are at least 4 years old that have not received proper dental care may have a condition called periodontal. It’s when bacteria attack the soft gum tissue that begins with the development of plaque on your pet’s teeth. It’s not easy for your pet to tell you what’s going on inside his mouth, but a qualified veterinarian certainly can tell you and, more importantly, help your pet feel good.

Here’s two locally helping do their part by making it easier on your pocketbook:

Gary Klement, DVM, is offering a month-long 20 percent discount on all dental procedures at his East Quincy facility, American Valley Animal Hospital. Dr. Klement said this includes a thorough examination, blood work, an IV catheter, cleaning and polishing. Call 283-4500 for an appointment.

Dr. Doyle Rolston at Indian Creek Veterinary Clinic near Crescent Mills is also offering a 20 percent discount on dental treatment packages during February. His dental package includes an exam, pre-anesthetic blood work, IV catheter, and anesthesia, clean and polish and a home dental care kit to take with you. Call 284-6187 for an appointment.


The 2017 edition of your locally produced telephone book, the Plumas-Lassen Connection, is hot off the presses and will soon be delivered throughout Plumas, Lassen and eastern Sierra counties. For well over two decades, we (Feather Publishing Co.) have published this local directory, combining home and business listings from throughout the region into one conveniently sized, easy-to-read phonebook.

Our sincerest thanks to the local business and professional people who, through their ongoing yellow page advertising support, make this important and highly used reference directory possible. And it’s through that support that a substantial part of their yellow page advertising investment in this local directory is given to local schools, clubs and organizations as payment— more than $200,000 since the first edition in 1995 —to them for delivering this book to homes and businesses throughout the county. Clearly, it’s become a major fundraiser for many of them.

As weather permits in the weeks ahead, students will be delivering these phone books to every home and office throughout the tri-county area. Once they are delivered, should you need additional copies for your home or office, just drop by your local newspaper office and help yourself.
