Business Scene for the week of 2/4/20


Past and present first responders, military, medical and corrections officials are invited to peer support group meeting, starting Wednesday, Feb. 12. Just because you are no longer in the field doesn’t mean you don’t belong. Whether you suffer from addiction, PTSD or just need a safe place to talk, you are welcome to attend! Come and vent, or just sit and listen to people going through the same challenges as you. So many don’t seek help and are no longer with us. Don’t be another statistic!

The meetings are held at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of every month 805 Main St., Suite D, Susanville. For more information, email facilitator Derek Paoli at, call (707) 391-0441, or email Susan Hawkins, marriage and family therapist at, or call 249-1915.
