JANUARY WELLNESS WORKSHOPS
Jon Olson, kinesiologist at Applied Kinetic Concepts, is holding two free community wellness workshops from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17 and Thursday, Jan. 24. The meeting will be held in the conference room at the Susanville Mall, located at 805 Main St. If you’ve never had a kinesiology session, you’ll get a chance to learn about and experience the many benefits of using this and other wellness techniques to improve your overall health, as well as reduce stress and achieve your goals.
We all need a little extra help sometimes and Olson specializes in helping clients find a holistic way to correct muscular and neurological faults, while enhancing your health, mind, body and spirit. You can stay for the whole program, or simply drop in for as long as fits your schedule. He’s also worked with veterans and individuals with PTSD from abuse to put their painful past behind them and find a new sense of joy in life. If you or someone you love could use a fresh new way of looking at life, be sure to attend one of the programs. You can learn more at appliedkineticconcepts.com or call him at 310-4277. If you have a horse, he also has the Bemer services for them too!

WHEN THE POWER IS OUT THE CASINO IS STILL OPEN
Now that we are in the heart of winter weather season, when the power goes out and the house is getting cold, jump in your car and head on over to the Diamond Mountain Casino and Hotel where the lights are on, the heater is working and the restaurant is ready to serve you up a hot, fresh delicious meal. Plus, you can enjoy a little recreation at the slots and see if you might be their next big winner. The gas station and mini mart are also open and able to provide you with propane and lots of delicious snacks and beverage food!
Pizza Factory is also open during power outages and serving up your favorite Italian sandwiches, pizzas, salads and soup, made fresh daily at their Susanville and Janesville locations. If someone you love is a shut in, be sure to invite him or her to go with you, or order them dinner to go. We all need to look out for our neighbors, family and friends during the winter storms and sharing a meal is a great way to connect.
In the south county, The Mark is open for you to get supplies and stock up on gas when the power is out, but they can only accept cash transactions. They also carry propane, too, to get your generators running.
