Jim Kooyman, manager at Payless Building Supply, tells us they have a great deal on in stock plywood blows for your home improvement needs. Plus with the cold winter weather here, they’re fully stocked up on ice melt and Pacific Pellet wood pellets to keep you warm.

“The new year is a great time to start planning and implementing those projects that have been on the home improvement checklist for some time and our friendly staff is ready to help you stretch your budget,” said Kooyman.

So remember to shop local and just like their slogan says “Why pay more when you can Payless?”


Rudy and Dora Valentine at the Iron Horse Gym want to remind you now is the perfect time to commit to getting healthy and fit for 2015. During the holidays it’s easy to put on a few extra pounds on top of the few extra pounds you may have been carrying last year. Don’t worry about how to begin your healthy exercise program because their staff is ready to customize a routine for your personal goals and fitness level.

“Many times people come for a few weeks and the initial realization of how out of shape they are can undermine their motivation and so they quit working out,” said Dora Valentine. “Our lifelong passion is health and fitness, so the staff at the Iron Horse Gym is ready to give you the encouragement you need to overcome your fitness challenges and finally succeed in living a healthier, more rewarding life.”

A workout a day does wonders for keeping the stress away. They also have on-site daycare and the Silver Sneakers program for the elderly, too.


Rick and Anna Stewart, owners of Susanville Supermarket/IGA, are stocking up for their first big produce sale of the new year. America is facing an obesity epidemic and one of the best ways to keep your body operating at peak performance is to eat at least five servings or more of fruits and vegetables each day, in addition to a regular exercise program. This weekend, Jan. 9 and 10, you can stock up at their produce sale and kick off your healthy eating program. Be sure to check out the super values on naval oranges — it’s a great way to get your daily dose of vitamin C.
