Lillian and Larry Lueck in 1968, just prior to the Lower Granite Dam construction-fueled expansion of Pomeroy.

After they turned it over to son Doug in 1993, Doug closed the Kafe and turned the space into a memorabilia display and a couple more service bays. After the Texaco Station closed [in ####], Doug continued business as Doug's Towing.

Mr. and Mrs. Hawley Huyette and children, Nancy and Joe, returned recently from a trip that took them to 22 states. They visited his brother in Chicago and also toured both Glacier and Yellowstone parks. The Huyettes had nothing for praise for Yellowstone and advised that it be included on everyone's vacation agenda if possible.

Hatleys Operate Cafe And Station

New operators of the cafe and service station on east Main are Mr. and Mrs. Jack Hatley. They took over the business last Saturday.

The drive-in cafe will continue to be known as the Kozy Korner and the service station will be operated under the name of Hatley's 66. At present the couple are keeping both businesses open from 7 a. m. until midnight or after.

Mrs. Hatley is also continuing her job as switchboard operator at the Pomeroy telephone exchange.

A bit on the front page of the November 11, 1957, East Washingtonian told us:


Mr. and Mrs. E.M. Lunders of Clark Fork, Idaho will take over the Kozy Korner cafe and service station on December 1 [1957] from Mr. and Mrs. Jack Hatley. The business will be known as Tuffy's Phillips 66.

The Kozy Korner Cafe and Texaco was at the east end of town where Main and Villiard come together.
