In 1992 it became affiliated with Les Schwab Tire Centers and five years ago owners Ron and Stephanie Horton moved to their expansive location on Highway 70 just past the Plumas Pines Shopping Center. The added space allowed the Horton's to add an alignment center with two racksfor 4x4s; three oil and lube stations; two on-the-car lathes for turning brake rotors; a siping machine for better traction in icy conditions; and two balancing stations, one with a road force detection system for duplication dri- ving vibrations. And while one of their 14 employ- ees work on your vehicle, relax in their comfort- able waiting area enjoying free coffee and pop- corn, a Schwab tradition. i  Chopper Clark has completed his first year as owner of Endeavor Dock Service at Lake A1- manor. His reputable services include installation, removal, storage and preventive maintenance. HELP THE GRANDCHILDREN NOW What's better than leaving money in your will for your children and grandchildren? Helping them now with the funds they need lbr educational and medical expenses. The kids are able to appreciate the gifts; the grandparents can hear the thank yous. There are simple ways to do this. You can give $13,000 in cash or other assets to as many people as you want, without incurring any gift or generation-skipping taxes. Spouses can give the same amount, adding up to an impressive $26,000 per person. Gifts to minors can go into a custodial account - but the donor must not be the custodian of the account. The custodian- parent can use the money to fund enrichments like summer camp and dance lessons. Another tax-free way to inovc money is with Section 529 savings plans. A grandparent can also pay tuition, medical and dental expenses directly without using the annual gift exclusion. But lending money calls for loan documents and charging interest. Save on taxes now and later. We'll show you how at: 307 W. Main St., Quincy • 283-0680 I BUSINESS SCENE. HELP WANTED ,:AUTO.
