RETIREMENT SALE IN PROGRESS After nearly 22 years, Sharon Paine has decided it's nearly time to retire!

It's American-made and known for its superior comfort, quality, value and inspired innovation. You will find several chairs and recliners on display in his downtown Graeagle showroom.

We should mention that the road is open, as is the restaurant at the lodge, serving meals Thursday - Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Chef Louis has added some new Mexican dishes to the menu to go along with his hamburgers and his homemade (fresh, not frozen) fries and onion rings. 00o..ow Yo00. The general answer is "Don't. You re cutting into your retirement assets; the amount borrowed is not appreciating with the rest of your account; and if you leave the job without paying it back, it becomes a withdrawal, with taxes and maybe a penalty due on the amount. On the other hand, it is tempting. The cost of the loan is much lower than you'd find elsewhere. If you are in dire straits -- facing foreclosure, perhaps, a spouse's lost job or huge medical bills -- this may be a reasonable choice. But it's unwise to tap long-term retirement savings to pay off a short-term debt. Another reason not to borrow is that it gets to be a bad habit. According to financial firms that handle retirement accounts, once workers borrow from their retirement accounts, they often find it easy to come back and borrow again. And again. This serial borrowing can permanently impair one's long-term savings. You can depend on the good financial advice you get from the know-how folks at Deadline nears for business summit The Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce, En- actus and Feather River Col- lege are committed to bring- ing together the Plumas County business community for professional development and networking on in the 3rd Annual Plumas Business Summit on Friday, March. 28.
