Spring time is now upon us, despite the fact that, as many would argue, we didn’t really have a winter to speak of.  As the trees begin to find their leaves again and the other plants begin to bloom, it reminds you of how things change but, in the end, how things generally have a familiar path that they go down.  The same thing can be said about small towns and local businesses.  Some businesses come and go, while others stay for many years without fail.  In the end, it’s the nature of the proverbial beast in that case.  So, in sticking with the theme that was started last month, it’s time to pay attention to another sampling of the crop of businesses that call our community home.
First off, as many would admit, nobody likes to do their taxes.  To many, the middle of April is some of the most dreaded time on the calendar.  There are those that do their taxes as early as possible, or those that seek to go about that tedious process at the 11th hour which, in doing so, only serves to increase the headache.  The beauty of the system is that there are options for those that wish to do their taxes on their own, or wish to go into their local brick and mortar office, so that the process can be handled by one of the pros.  With all of the accountants to choose from, one office sticks out.  Davis Hammon & Co., located at 2080 Myers Street, Suite 3.  An office that seeks to provide professional and timely service to its customers and does so in a manner that leaves the customer feeling satisfied.  Such as Jim Duckett, who prides himself on honor and integrity, when it comes to both his professional dealings and his interactions with the general public.  A veteran of the US Army and  a member of the Oroville Kiwanis Noon Club in the early 90s, Jim is a pillar of the community and a great guy to boot.  So if you still need to get your taxes done, give the office a call at 533-3392, or check them out online at
Transitioning from numbers to food, it’s time to consider some of the restaurant options in the area.  Looking to a longtime member of the business community in the area, you can’t go further than Cornucopia.  Located at 515 Montgomery Street, Cornucopia is a restaurant where you can go enjoy a good meal and are almost guaranteed to run into at least one person you know, if not more.  Whether it’s for a cup of coffee in the morning, a sandwich at lunch or steak for dinner, you can get just about anything from the guys at Cornucopia, so next time you’re hungry, head on over and have them fix you something.
Taking a monetary detour for a second, there’s something else to take note of.  April marks one year since the Digger was given a new lease on life.  As businesses are part of the tradition of any community, especially those smaller businesses, it is also important to look at the other aspects of communities that become, at least over time, part of the framework and overall foundation of the community itself.  Something that the community members find themselves identifying with and in the case of the Digger, tradition is not lost on this publication.  A publication that seeks to offer local businesses and community members with the chance to advertise their goods and/or services at an affordable rate and to show that, at least in this case, small town values and ideals have not died and with that, are still very much alive.  As the publication has had its association as of late with Collins & Denny Market, it would seem worthy to consider the link between the two, as they are both arguably very much a part of the history of Oroville and two aspects of community life that still move forward full steam ahead.
For the final business to be considered this month, it centers on an issue that many have faced.  Often, during times of physical impairment, whether it’s a hurt shoulder or knee, to name a few, the services of a physical therapist are often required.  In this case, the office of Valerie Nelson is the place to go.  Located at 2224 5th Avenue, Valerie and the rest of the therapists are there to help any patient with whatever ailment that they may be facing.  Not only a positive experience but also a group of people that know what they’re doing and seek to take the time to make their patients feel comfortable and that their needs are important, which for anyone who has been in the position of having any kind of pain, can appreciate.  So give them a call at 534-5452 if you find yourself needing help.
