The Making Of A Successful Business In The Intermountain Region
By Eve DeVeir
The first year anniversary of Zaengle’s Floor & Home in Susanville illustrates the fact that regardless of economic conditions a new business can succeed in this area. Last year Mark and Quin Zaengle, along with Mark’s parents Joe and Nancy Zaengle forged forward to establish a new home store.
They were well prepared for the challenge. Marks experience includes 12 years in Southern California managing six La-Z-Boy Galleries prior to bringing his family to Susanville. He spent the last 14 years running the floor covering department and putting his design skills to use helping clients put beautiful interiors together for Robbins House of Furniture. Joe and Nancy had been an integral part of Robbins for many years.
According to Mark, “Almost every day someone walks into the showroom and says one of two things- either, “Wow I didn’t realize you have so much beautiful furniture in your store,” or “This store is so much nicer than most of the stores in larger cities.”
A Lake Almanor couple said that coming from the Bay Area they were “pleasantly surprised” to walk into the store and instantly find just what they were looking for. The icing on the cake for them was the personal service. “From the quality of the merchandise, to the sales team, and even the delivery crew we were 100% satisfied.”
The Zaengle’s aren’t the only ones willing to put their all into a new venture in our intermountain area. To name a few: In Susanville, Susanville Ford, Gift Boutique Collectibles & Antiques; Travel Inn; Joanie & Frankie’s Cupcakes; Lumberjack Restaurant and Kern’s Thrift Shop.
Chester has its’ share of new businesses including Sierra Wisteria; Wynter Willow; RJ’s Restaurant and Cornerstone Engineering. Red Onion Lake Almanor Brokers opened their doors on the Almanor Peninsula, as did Red Onion Restaurant. In Westwood, Moonlight Bar& Grill; and Edgewood Realty joined the newly renovated Old Mill Cafe. Quincy likewise added to its’ impressive array of businesses with Intermountain Paint/Quincy Paint Center; Moon’s Restaurant and Jenelli’s Bakery.
So if you’re an aspiring business owner, and have the knowledge, willingness to invest your time and money, and top notch people skills you may just be the next successful intermountain business owner.
We extend a warm welcome to Servpro of Chico/Lake Almanor and their new office in Chester. Local Contractor Robert Rossini, who operates ServPro in Chico is excited about his move to the Lake Almanor area. His commitment to servicing the area drove him to open shop in Chester. “This will mean faster response time for the mountain areas”, he said, pointing out that this will often mean everything to a family faced with a flood, fire, sewage or other home disaster, like frozen pipes.
The company handles damage caused by fire, water and mold. They work with most insurance companies and they offer a wide array of cleaning services, from carpets and blinds, to air duct cleaning.

As we all become more and more aware of going green, I have paid more attention to what I throw in the wastebasket. It seems the simplest way to begin is to recycle. Not only does building this easy habit keep tons of garbage out of our landfills, it also puts a bit of a jingle in my pocket. During a recent visit to Bullseye Recycling, at 705-810 US 395 just outside of Susanville CA, I learned that I could be getting paid for a variety of things that never occurred to me to recycle. I always took in my aluminum cans and soda bottles, but did you know you can get paid for your old, dead car batteries? As long as the registration is current and you have a clear title, you can even take in a whole vehicle. Many plastic containers bring money but Bullseye also takes the ones with no CRV like your laundry soap bottles and milk jugs. Newspapers, cardboard and other paper products should be recycled as well. Save the planet, right? Don’t forget glass, old wire, scrap copper fittings and all the other metal type clutter that seems to breed in the garage. With just a few trips a year to your local recycle station you too can do your part in the nation wide effort to reuse and recycle. Call ahead to learn what your local station accepts. A few things on the NO list at Bullseye Recycling include electronics, styrofoam, motor oil and window glass. There are however other venues to safely dispose of these items as well. Our local landfill has special containers for the motor oil and electronics. As you go through your daily life think before you toss anything in the waste basket or dumpster. Can you reuse it? Can you get paid for it at recycle? Just add a can or two where you dump your trash and soon throwing that water bottle in the recycle can instead of the trash can will become second nature and no bother at all. Together we can change the world, one trash can at a time.
We had a rough start getting our new tipi rental and sales business, 2 Feathers Tipi, off the ground. We had a website, which was also new to us, and things were moving pretty slowly. We needed to get our name out there and let the neighborhood know that we hand crafted custom tipis for sale and rent. Then we advertised in Mountain Valley Living Magazine and the phone and website lit up like Christmas. One week after the magazine reached the shelves we had sold three custom tipis and had several calls for summer rental rates. The local campgrounds are sure to house 2 Feathers Tipis this year. We even sold one tipi to a web reader in South Carolina and our own website hits went from barely one hundred to over a thousand per day. In seven short days, we were well on our way and customers states away knew our name! What a relief to get the ball rolling. Thank you Mountain Valley Living Magazine.

$5,000 SEED MONEY FOR YOUR BUSINESS OR IDEA
First Ever California Business Plan Competition Starts at County Level
As part of a statewide effort to boost the economy and encourage entrepreneurs, the Business and Entrepreneurship Center at Feather River College (BEC) is announcing a business plan competition for anyone over the age of 14.
While the value of writing a business plan is often debated in the entrepreneurial community, studies have shown you are twice as likely to successfully launch or grow your business or be awarded funding if you have taken the time to write a solid business plan.
The plans for this contest must be based on an original idea for either a new business, a business in operation for less than two years, or a substantial improvement on an existing business.
First place at the county level will win $500 in each of three age groups: 14-17; 18-27; and over 28 years. These winners will be entered into the same age brackets at the California State competition for an opportunity to win an additional $5,000 in seed money for their business.
All entrants must be legal California residents, and business plans must be submitted using LivePlan software. A software license may be provided free of charge from Feather River College for individuals under the age of 28, and assistance in the planning is available.
Starting a business is an exciting proposition, but it’s also an incredibly challenging undertaking. Business plans are an essential roadmap for business success, and win or lose, every contestant will walk away with a valuable plan to launch a new business idea or improve an existing business.
The Plumas County Business Plan Competition will accept entries through March 1, 2013.
The contest is part of a three-pronged approach by the BEC to strengthen the entrepreneurial spirit in California, assist with regional and statewide efforts to increase the success of business, and expand entrepreneurship curriculum across community college campuses.

It’s always fun to talk to people who have recently moved to the mountains or escaped to rural life somewhere. Seeking out a few of them for this article brought back memories of my own escape from the city some three decades ago. I clearly recall the uncertainty that came with giving up our jobs in the city to ‘settle down in a quiet, little town and forget about everything’, the words of the day’s current hit, Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty. I would have never had the nerve to make that decision; I was pushed by my husband to move. It certainly turned out to be the right choice for raising our family.
I have had the pleasure of meeting young couples in both Lassen and Plumas counties who’ve relocated from a large city to begin their careers and families. I’ve also met folks who thought they were ruined by the housing crisis but instead have found a way to own a home in a small Northern California town. One of my favorite stories was from a semi-retired couple that came to purchase their dream home. While they could not retire early, they still made their way to the new lifestyle that they love. Both have taken jobs and are enjoying the quiet mountain life near the lake they’ve long loved visiting, and they are particularly enjoying their new commute!
I was very young when I made the move and I had a young child at the time. I immediately knew that this new life would suit him well, as it did. In fact he was a major factor in our decision to escape. A small school and small town life shaped him into a strong and capable man. He moved away for a while, but returned to raise his own family.
I remember the move up well, the fear of leaving my friends and family, and the initial shock of arriving in such a small town. Suddenly my life was so quiet. I spent my days baking cookies and sending them to my family, until I began meeting the friends and neighbors who would make up my new hometown. Potlucks, local school sports and community organizations make up much of the social life for us now and some of the family I’d left behind realized the dream for themselves and joined me as neighbors. As a result our local family has grown. We are now watching our children raise their children in our quiet, little town, and I am thrilled that the decision made so many years ago is now setting the stage for our grandchildren’s’ lives.
I still go back sometimes to visit my original hometown in the Bay Area, but I sure have a hard time driving in those traffic clusters, standing in lines to shop and paying more for so many things. I wonder how life would have been different if we had stayed, and am very thankful I was pushed into the change.
I have plenty of friends who love city life. I understand that there are different strokes for different folks but I am just glad I found mine. If you wonder if city life is really your style, come take a ride through rural Northern California. Life is good.
According to USDA’s publication Understanding Rural America, things are better than ever. Compared with the past, many of the conditions in rural areas have improved. Electricity, telephone service, and the highway systems are a few of the most visible improvements.
Rural families are also better housed today and more likely to own their own homes than in the past. Only 2 percent of full-time occupied housing in rural America was substandard (lacking complete plumbing facilities) in 1990. Fifty years ago, nearly 75 percent of rural homes failed this measure of adequacy. Crowding is also less of a problem for rural households. Today, only 2 percent of households live in a home with fewer rooms than the number of household members, down from 25 percent of households in 1940. The rate of home-ownership among rural households has also improved, increasing from one-half in 1940 to three-fourths today.
Now’s the time to have your engine coolant checked for freeze point before temps drop low enough to cause. The cooling system on today’s vehicles is complex as are the coolants (anti-freeze). The system condition is vital to the longevity and performance of your vehicle.
The cooling system is made up of coolant, a water pump, belt or chain, thermostat, radiator, radiator cap, hoses, freeze plugs, bypass system, heater core, passages inside the engine block, intake, and head(s).
The coolant is made of four components: water, ethylene glycol, dye, and a chemical package. Water is used to cool the engine; ethylene glycol is used to lower the freeze point of the water; dye is used to identify leaks – it is not a reliable way to identify coolant type (Dexcool and Toyota red look alike, but are chemically different and should never be mixed).
The chemical package is the most important ingredient in coolant. It allows the cooling system to resist corrosion, scaling, and acid damage. It also contains nitrite (in most coolants), which mends protective-oxide film on metal when cavitation tries to wear it away. The chemical package does break down over time and stops protecting the cooling system.
The water pump circulates the coolant. The thermostat regulates the flow and temperature of the coolant. As the engine heats up the thermostat opens allowing the fluid from the radiator to circulate through the system. If the coolant is not hot enough it will flow back to the bypass system. The radiator has fins and tubes that coolant passes through allowing heat to be dispensed from the cooling system. The radiator cap is responsible for regulating pressure in the cooling system. The hoses transport the coolant between components. The heater core uses coolant to heat the interior or the vehicle and looks like a small radiator.
When an engine block is manufactured, a special sand is molded to the shape of the coolant passages in the engine block. This sand sculpture is positioned inside a mold and molten iron or aluminum is poured to form the engine block. When the casting is cooled, the sand is loosened and removed through holes in the engine block casting leaving the passages that the coolant flows through. Plugging these holes is the job of the freeze plugs. Freeze plugs can corrode and fail allowing the engine to lose most of its coolant – engine failure is most likely to occur when this happens.
All internal combustion engines have an engine block and one or two cylinder heads. These surfaces are sealed together with a “head gasket”. When in good condition, the gasket keeps coolant from leaking out of the engine between the two component surfaces. Head gaskets usually fail if the engine overheats severely or continuously over time.
Before winter, and before summer you should have your coolant condition tested for freeze point and summer for boiling point. Failure to prevent freezing (or boiling in the summer) can result in costly repair.

The Susanville Symphony Society is “Celebrating Ten Years of Music on a Major Scale” with the upcoming anniversary season 2012-2013. The Symphony performed for the first time in May of 2003 with a handful of local musicians and the vision of conductor Benjamin Wade. Beginning with that first concert, the excitement and energy of our small community has sustained a dream of many of our local musicians. Since the symphony’s inception, it has grown to more than 50 musicians ranging in age from 12 years to 85 years old. The orchestra performs 5 concerts a year beginning in October with their ever popular Swing Band Concert and ending with the Susanville Pops Concert in June. Season tickets, tiered memberships and business sponsorships have supported the organization. The Society recognizes the importance of providing our community with the most interesting and diverse programs covering a variety of music for each concert. This season is no exception with the first ever Concerto Concert in February 2013 featuring a variety of soloists. The mission of the Susanville Symphony is not only one of performance, but of cultivating the learning and appreciation of music in Northeastern California. The symphony has fostered many programs including The Susanville Symphony Youth Orchestra, The Susanville Symphony Music Academy and coming this fall, The Susanville Chorale.

My husband and I recently purchased a vacation home in the Lake Almanor area. We had established lifelong friendships and spent a lot of time and several vacations in the area over the past twenty years. As you can imagine, we were excited to have a place where not only the two of us could go, but our grown children, their spouses and grandchildren could also enjoy for years to come.
The first step was acquiring the home. Next we set out to purchase furniture. After spending several months looking on-line, in the Bay Area (where our primary residence is), even in Reno, we had no luck. Even when we found furniture we liked, it was too expensive to ship, not in stock or not even available to ship to this location. Frustration was setting in, when a very good friend suggested I shop locally and referred me to Zaengles. While I liked the idea of shopping locally and giving business to a company in the area, I was certain, they would not have anything to meet my needs. Well, I have to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised. I walked in and instantly found the “perfect” dining room table, and everything came together from there. Before we were done, we had nearly furnished the house. (We’re talking Sun Room, Living Room, Bedrooms and Kitchen.) Even more importantly, the staff was superb, they delivered most of the furniture within two days, the prices were extremely reasonable. We also learned that it is a family owned and operated business which is very appealing to us. The couch and love seat are made not only in the USA, but I believe in California. To say we are happy customers, is an understatement. We are very very pleased with each item we purchased. From the quality of the merchandise, to the sales team and even the delivery crew; we are 100% satisfied in every way. Thank you Mark and Joe!
