UPDATE ON QUINCY AUTO CENTER If you've driven by Quincy Auto Center on Highway 70 next to Gansner Airfield, undoubtedly you noticed that all the cars on the lot are gone. Craig Peterson, general manager of Susanville Auto Mall which is also under the same owner- ship as the Quincy store, said they've been having an ongoing staffing problem in the sales depart- ment in Quincy. That, coupled with a soft econo- my, prompted their decision to close. He did say there is a really good chance the closure would on- ly be temporarily and could reopen in the not-to- distant future. Good news is that all the service technicians from the Quincy dealership are now working at the Susanville location, where they are happy to handle any service and warranty work for Quincy Auto Center customers. recreatic z 00,,ur-seasons CHAMBER UPDATE SUZI BRAKKEN Visitors Bureau The significance of Mother Nature's impact on tourism in Plumas County can't be over- stated. With the abundant snowfall this year came a ter- rific season of snowmobiling and skiing/snowshoeing, re- duced fire danger this sum- mer and is making for great fishing. Yet it also delayed golf course openings, wildflower viewing and is keeping camp- grounds closed for this up- coming Memorial Day week- end because they're still snowed in.

Which is the better deal? Far and away, the spending account. The money you put into an FSA is subtracted from your paycheck BEFORE any taxes are calculated - including the 7.65 percent Social Security and medicare taxes. Whatever your tax bracket, the savings are worthwhile on the maximum $5,000 in your FSA. Add in savings on your state taxes, too. If your expenses are high, you may use the credit as well. If you don't have a flexible spending account arrangement at work, then it makes sense to take advantage of the child-care tax credit. You can take a credit for 20 to 35 percent of up to $3,000 in child-care expenses for one child, up to $6,000 for two or more, but there are income limitations on how much you can get. What's the best way to save on your taxes'?
