"The night is an opportunity to showcase the many changes that have already place at Feather River Fitness, and to thank the community for its sup- port. We'll have chicken and polish dogs on the grill, with all the fixings, and the pool will be open," said Josh.

CHANGES AT DUPONT POWER TOOLS In an attempt to keep some rumors to an ab- solute minimum, we can tell you that after a brief absence Duffy Dupont is back at DuPont Power Tools in Quincy. We understand he is currently negotiating a buyout of his partner and once that is complete, Duffy will assume full control and re- sponsibility for the Quincy business that has been in his family for some 70-plus years. The business sells and services the complete line of Polaris and Articat snowmobiles and ATVs and accessories, as well as their full line of Honda and Stihl power equipment and supplies for both home and com- mercial use. PORTOLA FARMERS'- MARKErr .................. Sprouting Roots owner April Scheuchenzuber said her businesses parking lot in Portola is the site for a Farmers' Market Fridays from 4-7 p.m. REALTOR RECEIVES CERTIFICATION Last week I mentioned the noteworthy accom- plishment Jane Staudenmayer achieved by earn- ing her certification as a resort and second home specialist through the National Association of Re- altors. Jane has worked the last five years for Cen- tury 21 Lake Almanor Real Estate, which is owned and operated by Broker Mary Getz. Unfor- tunately, I mistakenly renamed the firm Century 21 Lake Almanor Properties -- my apologies to all. OOPS...THIS ONE IS ON HER Susan Holmes, CEAP of Heaven's Gate Equine Acupressure in Quincy, submitted a press release last week about her completing a course in equine acupressure and massage. She inadvertently gave us her wrong phone number -- and do we know how easily that can happen! Anyway, if you would like more information about this new technique call 283-1182. NEW SANDWICHES ADDED TO MENU Smoked pork, turkey and tri tip sandwiches served Southern style have been added to the menu at Mill Creek Fish & Chips on Highway 70 in East Quincy. Owners Scott and Delores Satter- lee said they are also making real hand scooped milk shakes and homemade apple and cherry pies by the slice. Don't forget: They take Thursday or- ders for smoked whole tri tips and racks of ribs for Friday pickup. MAKE THE MOST OF SOCIAL SECURITY You'll get the most from Social Security if you wait as long as possible to start collecting. While you CAN get benefits at age 62, they would be reduced as much as 25 percent for the rest of your life. And if you're working, the earnings cap could cost you $1 for every $2 you earn. Better: wait until normal retirement age - or even 70, if you can. There's a delayed-retirement credit that can boost your benefits - and future inflation adjustments - and no earnings cap at all. Marriage offers even more. A spouse can collect on his or her own earnings or spousal benefits based oh the higher earner's record. The higher earner can even collect spousal benefits on the lower earner's record and put off collecting his own higher benefits until age 70. Once a couple has been married 10 years, even divorce does not stop Social Security benefits - but the multi-married cannot collect more than one spouse's benefits. Questions about Social Security?
