Host and owner Carol Franchetti -- who, with 41 years un- der her belt, can lay claim to being the longest op- erating restaurant under the same ownership in the area -- will serve an assortment of delectables offered on her menu. Call 258-2426 to RSVP for the chamber mixer. ON THE MOVE IN GRAEAGLE Bequette and Kimmel Accountancy Corpo- ration is moving its Graeagle office May I to Village Center, Suite 6. John Kimmel and staff will have their own space inside the offices of attorney David Heaslett. Combining offices and these two professionals makes a lot of sense for many reasons. Most importantly, it'll be good for many of their mutual clients who have estate planning issues that need to be addressed by a CPA and/or an attorney whose respective prac- tices include estate planning. As an aside, this move doesn't affect Bequette and Kimmel's office at 307 West Main St., Quincy. HOME INSPECTION SERVICES Licensed general contractor Richard Davis has expanded his services. The 38-year Quincy resi- dent has renamed his business Davis Home In- spection and Construction. After 23 years in the construction trade, Richard knows the ins and outs and is now offering home inspection services to both buyers and sellers. He can be reached at 283-0687. SEASONAL OPENINGS... Longboards Bar & Grill at Plumas Pines Golf Resort in Graeagle opens for the season Friday, April 27, with its extensive bar and deck menu served from noon till closing and dinner from 6 p.m. daily. Executive Chef Sean Conry showcases local and regional farm produce and meats, fresh pastas and house-made desserts. Longboards has repeatedly won the Wine Specta- tor Award of Excellence and offers a full bar with a courtesy vehicle to take guests home upon request. Cuccia's Restaurant, owned by Terry Moore, Gina Prince and Lila Prince, is open for the season. The pizza, pasta and wine bar located at the corner of Mohawk and Johnsville Road is renowned for its classic Italian cuisine served in a very charming and comfortable atmosphere. Luciano's cucina di pasta has reopened for the season at 449 Peninsula Dr., Lake Almanor, across from the Coldwell Banker offices. Chef/owner Ivan Tochev serves his popular Ital- ian specialties for dinner seven nights a week. The Grizzly Grill and Mountain Cuisine in historic downtown Blairsden have reopened re- cently. Owner Lynn Hagen said she is looking for- ward to another great year with both of her busi- nesses, each highly regarded for their respective delicious menus. Ed Ward and Candi Ward reopened the Graeagle Restaurant for its 55th season, 12 years under Ed and Candi's ownership. Not many busi- nesses can lay claim to that kind of longevity; con- gratulations! Other recent Blairsden/Graeagle openings to mention include Bonta St. Bistro, Anderson's Garden Center, Queen Bee Boutique and the Briar Patch. MEDICARE PREMIUMS Basic Medicare Part B premiums rise slightly for most people this year to $99.90. But higher-income seniors will pay more: a surcharge on Part B premiums and also on Part D premiums, if they carry that coverage as well. The surcharges are based on modified adjusted gross income (for the year 2010) and filing status, plus certain tax-exempt interest and foreign earned income. If income has dropped considerably since 2010, one can apply to Social Security for relief. Singles and heads of households with incomes under $85,000 would pay no surcharge. Over that to $107,000, there's a $40 surcharge plus $11.60 on Part D; from there to $160,000, a $99.90 surcharge plus $29.90 on part D. Higher-incomes up to $214,000 pay $159.80 more on Part B and $48.10 on Part D. Beyond that, the surcharges are $219.90 and $66.40. Married and filing jointly, the brackets are exactly double. For separate fliers, it gets complicated; ask. When it comes to dollars-and-cents issues, come to the finance and tax people at: Roberta Allen, CPA John A.
