Rich and Bonnie Perdue, owners of Stockman's Res- taurant and Lounge in Halfway, have purchased Stockmen's Restaurant and Lounge at 2028 Main Street, Baker City, effec- tive January 16, 1994. Paul and Ada Matthews had owned and operated the Baker business for the past ten years. "For investment pur- poses," Rich said with a grin. "It's a going opera- tion, busy from 7 a.m. till closing."

"It's handsome, gor- geous, hand carved, a thing of real beauty," Rich said of that part of his new ac- quisition.

If yes, a "IY' is printed in the "Restric- tions" block of the driver's license. In most cases this "IT' is the fn-st clue hospital staff members will have that the victim of a fatal accident or illness intended to be a do- nor.
