Betty’s Books to mark 35 years with party, book-signing
BAKER CITY — Betty’s Books in Baker City will celebrate 35 years in business with a party and special book-signing at the store May 3.
Although the store, at 1813 Main St., opened on March 30, 1979, it has taken a while to find the right date to mark the anniversary. The party will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the book-signing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dan Warnock, longtime Baker County resident and rancher, has written a book titled “You Can’t Borrow Yourself Rich: Warnock Ranching History.” His father was born in Wallowa County so the Eastern Oregon roots go very deep. The book includes a number of tales of real estate transactions as one ranch or piece of land was traded for another, and the title comes from his father’s admonition that “you’re not rich just because you have money from the bank.”
Dan spent a number of years working as a banker, so he must have had a chance to observe this truth from both sides of the desk. There are many other fascinating tales as well, dating back as far as an ancestor who fought in the Revolutionary War.

BAKER CITY — Barley Brown’s Brew Pub won a gold medal for its Turmoil, a Cascadian dark ale, at the 2014 World Beer Cup earlier this month in Denver.

“We’ve won a lot of awards, but this one is special,” Barley Brown’s owner Tyler Brown said. “Barley Brown’s has been an innovator of Cascadian dark ale, and to now be recognized at the World Beer Cup is remarkable.”
Brown lauded the work of brewer Eli Dickison.
