The gas station and convenience store which occupied the northeast corner of the Highway 92/50 intersection came tumbling down last week. The Bruton family did business at the corner for several decades. “We all had a hand in the business, even if it was pulling weeds as punishment,” said Trudy Bruton Gastineau as she tearfully watched the building come down. Maverik has purchased the six-acre parcel at that corner and will soon begin construction of a gas station/convenience store to add to its rapidly expanding chain.
