8A Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Laura Beaton Staff Writer Ibeaton@plumasnews.com resses The mood was hopeful as NorCal native daughter Heidi Hall addressed about 20 people in Quincy on April 4.!Hall is running for Congress against Republican Doug LaMalfa and fellow Democrat Dan Levine. Hall's platform is that of a grassroots leader -- a social progressive and fiscal moderate who believes that a strong middle class is key to America's future. She has held a number of government-related jobs, with an emphasis on water resources. She currently works for the state Department of Water Resources and is a former employee of the Environmental Protection Agency. Hall said her No. 1 priority is the economy. She added that the "recovery" happens faster on Wall Street than in rural areas. Hall said she believes in "reaching across the aisle," in creating a no-labels group of Democrats and Republicans who can and do work together to benefit the people. She blamed extremists for the government shutdown. "We need to unseat Heidi Hall expresses herself during a presentation April 4 sponsored by the Plumas County Democratic Central Committee, Photos by Laura Beaton extremists -- the 17 folks who simply will not agree. "It's why I'm in this race." Hall acknowledged that the race is an uphill battle for her, that she's not getting lots of backing by state and national Democratic groups. She said the outcome is hugely dependent on people knowing her. "There are plenty of people disaffected with Doug LaMalfa. There are plenty examples of 'you can't win' and they win. I'm in it for the long run." To learn more about Hall, go to her website: heidihallforcongress.com.

Photo by Laura Beaton Gallery hosts grand reopening after downtown fire Laura Beaton Staff Writer Ibeaton@plurnasnews.com The fire of Dec. 15, 2013, will go down in history as one of Quincy's latter-day tragedies. Thankfully, no lives were lost and although four businesses were totally destroyed, several have now reopened or relocated. Friday, April 4, was the grand reopening celebration at the Main Street Artists Gallery. With the smell of varnish still in the air, a crowd of more than a hundred artists and supporters gathered to celebrate the successful restoration and reopening of the artists' cooperative. Formed in 2009, the Main Street Artists Gallery was a joint effort of local artists and art patrons who desired a venue to present high quality professional art to the public as well as to provide a location for public events. Located in the historic Clinch Building at 436 Main Street and staffed by artists and patrons, the gallery is currently open Wednesday- Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Artist Richard Daun was in charge of repairs and restoration after the devastating fire led to major water damage when firefighters used hundreds of thousands of gallons of water to battle the blaze. Daun said the floors were completely flooded and the ceiling and walls were also heavily damaged by water and smoke. The floor was replaced with random sized hardwood hickory flooring. One of the biggest challenges, Daun said, was replacing the doors to the gallery. Because of ADA requirements, a different style of door had to be installed, at a cost of $4,000. Daun said whenever possible, materials from local suppliers were purchased. Building owners Steve and Hope Smith hired Daun to complete the restoration of Jenelli's Bakery, which shares a wall with the gallery, as well as the Courtyard Suites, which occupy the upstairs of the Clinch Building.

Jennifer attended our local Portola schools from Kindergarten - Senior year. I moved to Portola from Kansas and attended Portola Jr.-Sr. High School from my 7th -12th grade years. We married in 1974 and honeymooned in the Southern California beach area of Santa Barbara, Oxnard and Ojai. Our first few weeks there, and loving the ocean, I applied for, was hired and began working in Channel Islands Marina at Anacapa Marine, a boat and ship repair. I began at the bottom of the work ladder, literally. I cleaned the bottom of the boats, learned most aspects of repairing small boats to multimillion dollar yachts. Next came running the hoist. That was quite a job. One loose strap and we would end up with a very expensive pile of liability. After about 2 years I became the Yard Foreman, a job that added many new responsibilities. I successfully oversaw a crew of about 20 employees. Within 5 years, I became the General Manager and obtained stock in the company. I worked at Channel Islands Marina for 8 years and then my wife and I decided it was time to move our family back to the Plumas/Sierra County area. We had our first 2 children at that time and wanted them to be raised where we had enjoyed our childhood and feeling safe. Living closer to their grandparents, who still lived in Portola and Graeagle, made our move a "Must Do." We sold our home in 1980, and we purchased the "Sattley Cash Store." In 1982 we moved to Sattley and re-opened the store. I knew when moving back up to this area we would need more income to support our family than the store would provide, so I resigned from my job, and sold our stock which enabled us to buy an older dump track, trailer, and backhoe. That began "ENGEL CONSTRUCTION" our excavating business. This story will be featured in next week's newspapers edition. "I live here, I've raised my family here, I work here, I love it here..." We would greatly appreciate your time, helping hands & voice donations. We are trying to "Home Grow" our campaign.
