Riggins News: Chambliss retires from PTCCU; Umpqua to close

My quote for the week is “What I’d give if I could say, “Hello Daddy,” in the same old way. To hear his voice and see his smile, to sit with him and chat awhile. So, if your father is still here, cherish him with care, for you’ll never know the heartache until you see his empty chair.” This quote is in memory of my dad who died Nov. 5, 2010; he would have been 101 in July. I sure miss him.
