Dewey Humboldt Museum is closing
Saturday was the last day you can visit the Dewey-Humboldt Museum. According to Town Historical Society President David Nystrom, a lease for the Old Bank Building on Main Street won’t be renewed past August. Nystrom indicates it appears the property has been sold by Gateway Baptist Church and the new owner isn’t interested in continuing a lease with the Historical Society. The Society will be seeking short and long term alternatives to the current location. Back in March, Dewey-Humboldt residents voted against a measure to purchase the property. The Museum closed its doors at 4.
Bee sting attack
Two tree service employees are recovering after they are stung by bees. The incident took place at around 9:30 yesterday morning in Cottonwood’s Riverfront Park. Cottonwood Fire Chief Mike Kuykendall says while it wasn’t a large hive, the bees became quite angry. Firefighters used a hose to spray a water and foam solution to help with bee removal. Kuykendall has some advice for homeowners who come across bees. Kuykendall explains bees don’t always stick around. Riverfront Park is closed to the public until further notice. Two weeks ago, a man was killed when he apparently disturbed a beehive while operating a backhoe. The man had been doing road clearing work on Date Creek Road between the communities of Hillside and Congress.
