New owners announce opening

Jayme and Gracie Murray have been busy the past few weeks preparing to reopen the cafe and bar on Timber Lake’s Main Street.

Although the sign outside still says “The Coop,” inside the Murrays have a new name and a whole new look for their business, Big Dad’s Grub and Pub.

Their target date for opening is Thursday, Feb. 16 but that’s a bit tentative. However, they are pretty definite about having a grand opening on Feb. 25 with George Mendoza’s band, Badger Horse, playing for a dance.

Legislative issues aired at forum

By Kathy Nelson 

District 28 legislators took questions for two hours Friday morning at a forum at Timber Lake hosted by the Timber Lake Topic.

Senator Ryan Maher (R-Isabel) and District 28A Representative Oren Lesmeister (D-Parade) covered issues from guns to land values as the Timber Lake High School Government class and about a dozen other people quizzed them.

In his first year as Asst. Majority Leader in the Senate, Sen. Maher said he deals with a lot of personnel issues. He described the high emotions that often surface, saying there are “lots of egos” and members sometimes “act like a bunch of fifth graders.”

What are you looking at?

This curious trio is among a herd of more than a dozen deer which have made a home in a tree patch on the north edge of Isabel between the county highway shop and Darrel and Bonnie Burke’s home. Using tree shelters as wind-blocking thermal cover is attractive to deer seeking to survive the rugged winter. The herd can frequently be seen venturing farther into town.

Isabel town board considers paying for law enforcement

By Robert Slocum

Contributing to the county law enforcement coffers in exchange for patrol hours in town was discussed at the monthly meeting of the Isabel Town Board on Monday. County Commissioner John Meginness attended the meeting to ask the municipal board if they would consider an agreement in the future.

“I guess what we’re looking for is some financial help for the patrolling and support,” Meginness said. “We’re running into trouble to keep it all going, too. It costs us $28.50 per hour to patrol.”

Parties sign agreement

By Kathy Nelson

 

Less than 24 hours before a circuit judge was to hear arguments to determine the fate of a herd of wild horses at Lantry, a settlement agreement was signed by the parties.

 

Dewey County State’s Attorney Steve Aberle, who led the legal effort to have the ownership of the estimated 540 horses transferred from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB), said it was a “win-win” situation.
