Classic combinations always have worked for Kodi's Noon Saloon & Steak House, which in one form or another has been in business for more than 30 years. Kodi's is built on the founda- tion of the old Hub Tavern, which opened its doors in 1967; it was one of the first businesses in the rebuilt Pateros downtown. The Hub was a classic small-town tavern, offering beer and wine and snacks and conversation. But Pateros lacked a full-ser- vice restaurant, the kind of place where people could sit down and enjoy a dinner and a cocktail. Grinnell started a remodeling project; "the whole place has been renovated over the last 10 years," he said. With one piece at a time, the tiny Hub Tavern turned into the bigger, brighter Kodi's Noon Saloon & Steak House. Grinnell added a kitchen and a dining room with big windows and a dance floor. The new din- ing room opens on to an enclosed terrace. He obtained a Class H liquor license that allows him to Kodi's Noon Saloon & Steak House has been around since the town of Pateros was rebuilt in 1967 Kodi's Noon Saloon & Steak House specializes in classic at- serve mixed drinks as well as beer and wine. Frequently there is live music--every weekend in the summer--and karaoke. Most of the live performers are local bands. The snacks were eliminaled in favor of a full menu. Kodi's "spe- cializes in steak and seafood," Grinnell said, offering steaks, lobster, prawns, hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, salads, and appe- tizers. There are specials every day. The cooking is done by Grinnell and Judy Archer. The remodeled business needed a new name. Since he starled opening at noon, Grinnell said he got the idea of calling it the Noon Saloon. Many modern bars and restaurants have themes; Grinneli decided to spotlight his Seattle origins by naming the business for his Husky dog Kodi. Grinnell said people have re- sponded favorably to the change; travelers stop in for dinner, people come in for a meal before or after a round of golf at Alta Lake. But like any business, the back- bone is the regular customers, the people who come in for lunch or dinner week in and week out. Grinnell has those as well-- if the restaurant puts out a good product, people will come back, he said. Grinnell has owned the busi- ness since 1984; he had a job with the telephone company, but "I wanted to get my own busi- ness," he said. He had never worked in a tavern before, he said, but he liked the idea of working around people. Besides, he liked the area and "there weren't many jobs around here for an old telephone person." He said it has been a good business. Survive the drive In a joint effort, the Washington State Patrol and Chelan and Douglas County law enforcement agencies will be conducting emphasis patrols throughout the two county area over the Thanks- giving Holiday period, with special emphasis projects planned for the SR97A Corridor. The purpose of the patrols is to increase seatbelt/child restraint usage and to combat the presence of the drug and alcohol affected driver. Motorists are encouraged to drive with "Lights on for Safety" and to be aware of the presence of wildlife in the corridor area and the need to use extreme caution when traveling the SR97A Corridor. Thanksgiving Holiday Period Emphasis: The Thanksgiving Holiday period emphasis will run between November 24, 1999 and Novem- ber 28, 1999. Law enforcement will again b, paying particular attention to" Speeding drivers, erratic drivers, aggressive drivers, drug and alcohol related offenses, and road rage offenses. In addition, troopers will be reminding parents that: I. The backseat is the safest location for children age 12 and younger as this affords them the best protection in the event of a collision. 2. Rear-facing child car seats (infant seats) should never be installed in the front seat of vehicles, which have passenger side air bags, as the air bags deploy with such speed and power they may push the infant into the seat and can cause head injuries. Always secure car seats properly. 3. Front seat passengers, of any age, should slide the front seat back as far as possible, if there is a passenger side air bag, to give the air bag room to deploy. 4. The shoulder belt should never to put behind the backs of adults or children as they won't work properly. 5. Passengers should take the slack out of seatbelts and make sure the belts ride snugly across the lower portion of the hip. This way the skeletal structure absorbs the impact of the collision rather than the more sensitive internal organs, 6. Lap belts must be used in conjunction with the shoulder restrain harness. 7. Lap belts and shoulder harness must be used in conjunction with air bag. Never depend solely on air bag restraints. The State Patrol's enforcement position for seatbelt and child restraint violations is a "zero tolerance" policy. The results of a recent seatbelt usage survey conducted on SR-2 at the intersection of Easy Street showed only 72% of drives utilized the seatbelt restraint system. Law enforcement's goal is 100% compliance. To assist in your travel please follow these simple rules: Check the condition of your vehicle prior to departure; give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination; maintain safe follow- ing distances; allow proper passing distances and don't pass in or near corners; watch your rearview mirror; if you are tired, pull into a safe area and rest; if using a cellular phone, pull off the road to a safe area to talk; always keep an eye on "the other guy," and drive defensively; properly use all seatbelts and child restraint devices; and prepare for winter driving conditions by not using overdrive or cruise control systems; carrying proper gear, i.e., blankets, food, shovels, clothing, flares, chains, etc.; stay back from DOT plow trucks; keep the same type of tires on the vehicle and use common sense. The mountain pass information telephone number is 1-800-695- ROAD (7623). Law enforcement personnel are your friends and neighbors. They want you to have a safe Thanksgiving holiday and arrive at your des,lination and return home safely and without incident. Survive The Drive - Don't Drink and Drive.
