Several changes have been made at the Captain's Wheel since it re-opened here in Bayview, Idaho. First was the addition of Dean Knowles, previously at the Bay Cafe. Starting Friday, July 15, Dean will be preparing your favorite breakfast meals. He will be open at 7:00 am.
Several other familiar faces are present as well. Shawna in the kitchen and Carly behind the bar are old 'Wheel hands from the previous incarnation. Heidi, at the Buttonhook last year, is tending bar during the day shifts. Other returnees may appear in the near future as well.
A happy hour has also been established. From 4-6 pm weekdays, canned beer and well drinks at $2.00. With the Wheel back in business and under new management, plus the Buttonhook returning to the upscale meals that they were known for in past years, along with Ralph's Cafe, a full slate of choices await the visitors to our village.
While BYOB will continue for a while during the week, banquet permits have been obtained for Friday, Saturday and Sundays allowing liquor to be sold at the Buttonhook.
The Bayview Whitecaps Babe Ruth team recently received a generous donation of $500 from Chan Karupiah, owner of Scenic Bay Marina and others.
On a sad note, Don Reynolds, a long time resident of Bayview passed away in his sleep just prior to the July fourth celebrations here in town. Long crippled up, he didn't get out much any more. The sign on his front porch used to read, "Mayor." Hiz Honor is gone and the sign removed.
