   Do you use the Quicken program in the workplace, or to keep track of funds for a family business? Learn how to set up, edit, and delete accounts and transactions at a Cascadia Community College Lifelong Learning class, titled "Quicken For The New User." This non-credit class will be offered on April 29th from 9 a.m. to noon at Northshore Senior Center (10201 E. Riverside Drive, Bothell). The class fee is $29.
