The TG sign abides. The modest sign directing locals and visitors alike to the park-like setting of one of Enterprise’s favorite watering holes will continue to do so. After a lot of back and forth, The Oregon Department of Transportation has recognized that the Terminal Gravity sign on the outskirts of Enterprise was “grandfathered” in to its location. Historic presence wins and the sign does not have to be moved from ODOTs right of way.

Any of you been admiring the “she-sheds” and other cute little cottages folks post on Facebook? I can’t get enough of them. I dream about sheep-sheds, chicken-sheds, a shipping-shed for an online business . . . So, I keep my eye on the two shed sales businesses in Wallowa County: Nick Januzzi’s “Hickory Sheds” in Enterprise and Garrett Mahon’s LaGrande-built sheds in Wallowa.

Recently Nick Januzzi posted that in addition to the standard “Hickory Sheds” (no credit check, monthly payments), “Hickory Sheds” offers some custom and even on-site building options. Barn, lofted barn and utility buildings can be built to order with windows, side doors and other customer requests. Customers can also order 2”x6” floor joists and 12-inch on center floor joists. Call today 541-426-0711 or swing bye DJ’s Repair/U-Haul office at 703 Golf Course Road in Enterprise.

To learn more about “Hickory Sheds” pick up a brochure at Januzzi’s or visit www.hickorysheds.com.

If your year-end resolution health practice allows you to imbibe, here’s an alcohol-related bit of news: The Range Rider in Enterprise has been granted an off premise license by the city. Approval by OLCC is not in, yet. When that comes in you will be able to take home six packs and cases (possibly craft beers in the future). The benefit for buyers are that the Range Rider is open after stores close.

An off premises license allows a vendor to sell factory sealed malt beverage, wine or cider for take-home. A growler is included in that rule. The license is also needed in order to get pre-approval to provide sample tasting of malt beverages, wine or cider — another thing the Range Rider may experiment with in the future.

Those extras are still under consideration and, again, that approval from OLCC still has to come in. But there’s no reason to believe there will be any hang-up.

Cheers.
