Water was turned off in many businesses in downtown Beach as workmen tried to stop the flow of water that flooded the basement of the former Ueckert building, now owned by Natalie and Tavo Muruato. The Muruatos did the digging to reach the curb stop and when it was found that the problem was on the city's side, City Crews fixed the broken pipe, then had the Muruatos replace the con- crete sidewalk. Building owner, Natalie Muruato, looks down the deep hole at a water leak on Central Avenue Tuesday. Below, Tavo Muruato attempts to stop the flow of water from a curb stop valve that broke. Photos by Shai'on Dietz By Sharon Dietz The enterprise by an out-of -state couple to be Yak ranchers and open a Yak-a-Dashery in Beach has been scrapped. The home that was purchased is up for sale. Alan Enrich and his partner, Avis, were reached by phone Monday. He said "plans have changed." Enrich would make no further comment beyond health was not an issue. When asked if he had any- thing to say to the people of Beach, Enrich declined to com- ment. In March of 1995, the cou- ple approached the Beach City Council with the proposal and asked the Beach Zoning.Board to change zoning for the house they purchase. The former Tom' Johnson house behind the Masonic Temple was to be a cot- tage industry store where Yak products, paintings, jewelry and collectibles tied to the culture of Nepal and Tibet would be sold. Zoning was changed to com- mercial for the proposed store. Enrich's proposal was to have a Yak on site in town for tourists to see. He envisioned tourists stopping in Beach for the unique products from the Yaks. Enrich said he had pui'chased land 10 miles north of Beach to run a bull and two pregnant Yaks. He said the combed fibers from the coat make cashmere- type yarn and the Yak dung makes good fuel with sweet grass smell. "This is a unique venture. You won't see this in Aspen, Colorado or Medora," Enrich had said. You won't see it in Beach either. Street work begins Crack-Sealing on City Streets will begin on June 15.
