803-03.4 SmallTownPapers. lnc 217 W Cota St " " ou.clL Mou.TAI. MUSIC / Microburst hits lear Dave Addington's campsite after the microlurst. BY DALE FxsK About three weeks ago, a storm hit a small area above Bear. Dave and Suzy Addington were camped at the Bear Campground ('this side of Huckleberry , . -. Campground ) when an ' intense bout of rain, hail, lightning and wind hit. A number of trees broke off in the wind, one of them landing on the Addington's pickup, q-he cab roof was partially caved in, but it could have been worse:If the tree had broken off down lower on the trunk, a much bigger, heavier por- tion of the tree would have crunched the pickup. Plus, no trees fell on their camp trailer. A tent was flattened by a tree at a nearb campsite, but no one was in'it at the time. Several trailers and a motorhome in the area had near misses. The microburst seemed to only cover an area about a mile wide & half again that long. The wind seemed to be like a tornado that didn't quite reach the ground, staying up toward the tree tops. Bear Creek rose dra- matically and washed mud all the way down through the XXrfldhorse River. Dave says he really likes" his pickup, and the doors still open and close OK, so it doesn't look like he's going to get rid of it. So if you see him drive by with a slightly crunched cab, you'll know why. Bird West party Bi, DALr. FIS on Saturday. There are parties, and The theme of the party then there are parties.

Crime wave hits Council BY DALE FISK In the past two weeks, downtown Council has seen more crime than usually happens in months. Last week Council Valley Market was broken into and robbed, not once, but twice. Some teenagers (15 to 17 years old) came in by tearing up the back door on Sunday night (12 ) and then came back the next night by damaging the front door. They were evidently gathering party supplies, as they took cigarettes, cigars, lighters, ice cream bars, beer, wine, bagels, and more. No money was stolen; storeowner Vic Ludwig says he doesn't leave any money in the cash drawer at night. Felony burglary warrants have been issued for the three known suspects, although Ludwig says six kids were involved, and more - the other kids the burglars partied with two nights in a row - knew about the crime. At least one of the alleged perpetrators was involved in a break in at the school last year, and was still on probation for thati On Sunday night the last employee to leave One Eye Jack's knows she locked the door. The next morning, the door was unlocked, and between $600 and $700 was missing. Manager, Darrin Watson says the thief must be someone who still has a key, maybe even from several years ago. Authorities have few leads on this crime. CouncilChamber of Commerce 00greets new businesses Nikki Mathews accepts her welcome basket from Council Chamber Secretary Deb Wilson.
