'New' business in the old Chevron station deserves attention


I must beg forgiveness for my procrastinating personality problem. There has been a local business (for a while now) that I’ve been meaning to visit and write a blurb as an introduction to you readers.

The address is 502 State Street and located inside what us old timers call “the Old Chevron Station” (but newbies call the “Blue Building”); anyway, it’s across the highway from the Lions Club…on the corner of 5th Street and Highway 14. The sign above the door states “Jake Woods Guns” but there is so much more. Debbi Carse is the owner/proprietor and is quite knowledgeable in her chosen field. The first thing she wanted was to thank all those who supported her in making the business possible and profitable. It’s a see-to-believe of all the items that line the walls and shelves of hobby gear from firearms and ammo to fishing poles and live bait. The tiny shop lacks the space needed to display all the tools-of-the-trade, so she used a bit to proudly display a plaque awarded to her for supporting Lyle’s children with the After School Fishing program.  Occupying a little more of that space stands an ever alert mounted wild turkey, and a few antlers on the walls—most likely the possessions of successful hunts. What Debbi doesn’t carry she easily orders, via her connections, to fulfill either a hunter or fisherman’s need, so give her a call at (509) 365-2144 and—I may be late—but, welcome to the neighborhood and good luck to perhaps our newest business.

As of Oct. 1, I understand the burn ban has been lifted with the exception of burn barrels. This ban maintains certain legal requirements and rules still to be followed: size, safety issues, materials, attendance, distance from structures weather, etc, all have to be taken into account. Awareness and compliance of these rules can prevent loss of property and dollars from your pocket. Check the website at:
