The town that moved Denio used to be a small dusty Oregon bordertown, · but in 1950 residents decided to try changing their luck and the town seceded from the state and moved a few hundred feet south, across the border into Nevada. (AP Wirephoto) Move didn't help town change its luck DENIO.Nev. AP -Nearly 30 years ago, the 20 or so citizens of the dusty, delapadated desert town of Denio, Ore., tired to change their luck by moving the town a few hundred feet south, across the border into Nevada. But it didn't work. The gambling boom-town Harrison Grove and his fellow townspeople envisioned never materialized, and dust settles on the poker chips in Denio, Nev. Would-be gamblers on their way to Winnemucca or Reno drive right on by. The dry little town's population didn't grow, even after the first electric power lines reached there in 1961. Jim Meredith, his face as weathered as the dust-blown buildings of Denio, says he's been "vacationing" here for four years. But there aren't many others. Once in awhile, says Howard Murrah, who owns the Dia- mond Inn Bar, there's a big card game in Denio. But its just as easy to find an illegal game up north, in Lakeview or Burns in Oregon. Mostly, the people who stop in Denio want gas'and beer. It's at least 150 miles to the nearest town, and they sell Coors beer in Denio. The popular brand isn't sold in Oregon. Harrison Grove, who spurred the town's move southward in 1948, is dead. Most of the slot machines he and the others brought with them also are gone. They weren't very popular. And all that's left of old Denio, Ore.,, is a battered shack. "You've seen it?" asks Daisy Sherburn, who's lived all of her 78 years in the stark Denio country. "The wind can't even blow it over," she says. "Too many places for the wind to blow through, I guess." NOTICE TOCREDITORS Estate Of ABRAHAM SILBERMAN, Deceased.
