One suspect in custody in Pacific County burglary

March 28, 2014 Comments off

The Pacific County Sheriff’s have one suspect in custody for a burglary that took place in the Lebam area.

The Sheriff’s Office received a call around 11 yesterday morning that there were two masked individuals burglarizing a home that was occupied at the time and responded to the situation. Pacific County Chief Criminal Deputy Pat Matlock said the suspects had been chased from the scene when they arrived.

The sheriff’s deputies then set up a perimeter and brought in their K9 tracking dog, but they were unable to locate the suspects at that time.

As they were still working on the case the sheriffs received a call at around 6:45 in the evening from a neighbor of the residence saying that someone had come out of the woods and asked to use their phone.

The sheriffs arrived on the scene and were able to indicate that it was one of the suspects from the burglary and take him in to custody. Matlock said that there is still one suspect at large and the case is still on going and pending.

Denny’s plans still underway

March 27, 2014 Comments off

Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson says that after years of rumors, Denny’s will be returning soon.

Simpson announced at the City Council Meeting last night that the owner of the franchise has been working on returning.

Simpson said that he had talked to the new District Manager for Denny’s saying, “Corporate was having some issues with the new designs inside their building, so they have just gotten all their approvals. Work should soon start.”

In December 2011 the restaurant was abruptly closed. The diner’s owner, who had changed the business from a Denny’s to an America’s Diner, told employees about the closure with a note on the door.

Simpson also said that construction on a new O’Reilly’s building has begun and AutoZone has plans underway as well.

Effort to block marijuana from Downtown Aberdeen voted against

March 27, 2014 Comments off

The Aberdeen City Council passed the first reading of their Marijuana business zoning at last night’s meeting and turned down a proposed amendment to it as well.

The council brought the bill to the floor for its first reading and Councilwoman Kathi Hoder made a motion to amend the bill by removing the marijuana retail businesses from the downtown zones. Hoder said it was not what she wanted for downtown Aberdeen.

“If we’re going to put all this money in downtown, we’ll have this business, but we don’t need it downtown.” said Hoder.

Councilwoman Margo Short said that it would also be easier to authorize the businesses in the commercial zones later if everything worked out well.

Short said, “If we put it out in the industrial/light industrial areas…if it works out fine. And after the initial hurrahs and everything get by and the legislature comes along with everything they’re going to do, if we decide we want it downtown then we can move it downtown. If we have it downtown, we’re not going to move it back out.”

Councilman Pete Schave said that not only was it the will of the people, but that it is not unlike other businesses that have been in the area before, saying

“Say it moved into the old liquor store downtown. What’s the difference? that was a perfectly legitimate, controlled, highly regulated, operated liquor store for years, and it’s a highly visible area. What’s the difference?”

The amendment was voted down 9 to 3 with Short, Hoder, and Councilwoman Alice Phelps voting for it.

The first reading was then passed with the only no vote coming from Short.
