Station 3 Coffee House is located in downtown San Miguel directly across from the Station 2 firehouse. Scott serves as a volunteer firefighter with the San Miguel fire dept. Volunteer firefighters dubbed Scott and Lori's place as Station 3 from their times of hanging out and sampling their private label wine, aptly named Station 3. The original firehouse, Station 1 is located on L street next to the library, housing antique fire engines.

Station 3 has applied to serve beer and wine. Starting in April the Station will host biker nights on Wednesdays, rolling out their "kegerator" and BBQ. The Coffee House will also partner with The Ranch to offer late night concert patrons a place to eat with car hop service at the curb.

Station 3 has something for everyone from the Sunday church crowd, car and biker clubs to laptop road warriors. Discounts are offered to Military, Law Enforcement and Firefighters.

San Luis Obispo County Parks is reviewing opportunities to expand San Miguel Park. One of the options to expand the park is to close one block of K Street between 12th and 13th streets. This one block of K Street now splits the park into two pieces as shown in the photo above. Closing this one block of K Street will provide a larger park area that can accommodate more recreational activities within the park.

Your opinion is important to County Parks. Please take a moment to contact Elizabeth Kavanaugh to register your "yes" vote to close the street or "no" vote to stay divided. E-mail Elizabeth or call her at 805-781-4089 no later than January 21st.

The fun filled evening was blessed with a break in the rain during the duration of the parade and visit from Santa. All parade entries were festively lighted as they streamed along Mission street in San Miguel.

The parade was lead by the Veteran's Honor Guardholding unfurled flags, followed by Native Daughters of the Golden West, and San Miguel Fire Engines decked out with antlers, lights and music. Gib and Laverne Buckman brought their four "reindogs" with greetings fromWhite Oak Mobile Home Park.
