LOCAL PHONE BOOKS GETTING OUT The 2010 edition of your locally-produced tele- phone book, the Plumas Lassen Connection, is hot off the presses and is now being delivered throughout Plumas, Lassen and eastern Sierra county. Should you need additional copies for your home or office, just drop by one of our local news- paper offices and help yourself. Here's a heads-up for folks in the business and service sectors: Well trained sales reps from two other telephone direc- tory companies are currently selling yellow page ads for their books in this area that publish early this summer. In light of the current economic chal- lenges we are all facing, be smart. If, for whatever reason, you decide to buy an ad elsewhere, be clear on what you are buying, who you're reaching and how it will be of added benefit to you. Since we are here with you throughout the year, if we can fur- ther assist you in any way, give one of my advertis- ing sales consultants a call. We are always here to help you in any way we can! REDESIGNED WEBSITE UNVEILED Chris Nicholson is really excited about the new website for his business, Graeagle Lighting Company, especially with what he describes as its strong visual i/npact and dazzling display of lights that are featured for sale throughout his store. It is in a format, he said, that successfully displays products and gives customers a better idea of how it might look in their home.

That's when spouses with similar incomes pay more tax on a joint return than two singles would on individual returns. Unwed couples don't worry about that. There are other tax advantages to being an unmarried couple. One unmarried partner can claim the other as a dependent. The couple must have lived together for the whole year, with one furnishing more than half the other's support. There are strict income limits, though nontaxable income doesn't count. Result: a $3,650 tax deduction. Even if the supported partner earns more than $3,650, the supporting partner can claim a deduction for all the other one's medical expenses. Shifting assets to the partner in the lower tax bracket offers tax- saving possibilities, too. (There may be gift tax issues; check with a tax professional.) The partner with income below $33,950 will owe no taxes on a long-term capital gain. We've got the answers to your tax questions. Talk to the experts at: 307 W. Main St., Quincy * 283-0680 This month fe, ltures poker run and dog sled races CHAMBER UPDATE BETTY HECK Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce Bundle up!

The snow conditions are what make the Sled Dog Races so special to our area. Got snowshoes? Bring them along. The "Snowshoe Fun- Run" has been added to this year's event.

Most of the restaurants in Portola, Graeagle and sur- rounding areas are open dur- ing the winter, but have win- ter days or hours. It is advis- able to give them a call before you go. In addition, the merchants in Portola and Graeagle have winter hours. Wander in and say "hello." Have coffee, hot chocolate at the local restau- rants and bring it along as you walk the quaint towns. Might be a little slushy, but no matter. This is the best time the year to get to know the merchants in Eastern Plumas County. Have you noticed that the Coffee Tree Express is relocat- ing and expanding?. It is mov- ing from the original location to 196 E. Sierra in Portola.
