Monday: A boundary change

Wednesday: Was based on a business enterprise/government relationship

Thursday: The state outlawed the enterprise.

Friday: Zan's Tavern was involved.

It would seem from the Jan. 14, 1954 issue of the Clearwater Tribune that the Village of Peck after flexing its boundaries two years before to include places such as Zan's Tavern on the Lewis-Clark Highway (now U.S. 12) five miles east of Orofino decided to keep its boundaries within Nez Perce County.

The article says that presumably the outlawing of slot machines the month before by the Idaho State Legislature prompted the action. Zan's had operated its slot machines as licensed by the Village of Peck.
