Tills WEEKEND AT NAKOMA GO SORT! 3ES WITH A VAILABLE. ,RDS STIC WINES !IED BOTTLES t Cheryl Reinitz hangs out with her bear mascot in front of the window of Forest Stationers that posed the question, "What do you love about Quincy?" It took hardly any time at all to fill the window up with answers. Photo by James Wilson Simple question draws many positive responses James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.com What do you love about Quincy? This simple and open question was posed by Bob and Cheryl Reinitz, owners of Forest Stationers. Earlier in June, the couple hung up a sign in their window posing the question. The Reinitzes then left out a pen for people to write their answers on the window. The response they got, was overwhelming. Within a week and a half, the large window looking out to the courthouse was filled with various answers. People walking or driving by took notice and made sure they got their two cents in. "People have really been responding so positively to this," said Cheryl. "Visitors especially have really liked this." The Reinitzes originally posed the question in their window to attract fbot traffic. As the window began to fill up, they realized what an attraction it had become. The responses written by people passing by range quite a bit, but one aspect they all have in common is they are all positive. Some responses deal with the natural beauty of the area. These include: "trees," "the lakes and rivers" and . "the peaceful mornings." Other comments praise the people who reside in town and work at strengthening the community. These include: "the people," "I love that our community shows up" and "small business owners." Small businesses from town were even mentioned by name. Cheryl and Bob made the list, as did "George the barber," Moon's and Pangaea. Cheryl's personal favorite response was "that we don't have a W,almart or McDonalds." A few days ago, Cheryl decided the town needed to be asked something new. She washed the answers off the window and hung up a sign that asks "What can we add to Quincy?" The public is invited to head over to Forest Stationers and write down their thoughts on what Quincy can use, and what may be able to make our town an even better place to live.

R)rrner real estate agent sent, n( or taking $54,000 from Dan McDonald Managing Editor dmcdonald@plumast.ews,com A former Portola real estate agent was fined anti sentenced to five years of probation last week after pleading "no contest" to felony embezzlement. Earl Warren Morrison, 67, was convicted of taking more than $54,000 from a properb management trust account when he worked'for Portola-based Lynn Welch Realty. The charges against Morrison were the result of a 15-month investigation by the Plumas County District Attorney's Office. The DA's investigators, Jeff Wilkinson and Jessica Beatley, also did extensive outreach to locate many of Morrison's victims. The investigators found that Morrison had removed the money from a trust account that held security deposits paid by renters pending the completion of their rental agreement. Most of the theft reportedly took place in 2011. Morrison, who had no previous criminal record, surrendered his real estate broker license in August 2012 after the California Department of Real Estate accused him of six violations. During the July 10 sentencing in Quincy, visiting judge Thomas Kelly took into account that Morrison used some of the misappropriated money to help property owners with repairs and other bills. "It was a sad situation all around," District Attorney David Hollister said. "The victims all lost a great deal , Our community benefits from it! I JSt account money during a troubled economy. While he did try and use so[fe of the monm b, assist property owners, ht, used nmch of the stole_q proceeds Ibr his own ' benefit." As part of his probat toll, Morrison was ordered to serve 182 days in the county jail, pay fines of nearly $1,10o and pay restitution i tho amount of $54,031.95.
