With crime on the rise along the border, a startling incident at the Iron Horse Bar and Tavern in Presidio adds to local fears. A Mexican gang of midgets, named Los Minis, stormed into the the bar and proceeded to fight amongst themselves. After several minutes of complete chaos, the police were finally called. 7 men were arrested and put in the back of one large police car. Although it was a tight fit, Officer Pittman stated " this limits the risk of escape".
A recent new resident has turned heads in Marathon. A family of Budweiser Clydesdales has retired downtown. These majestic horses have done things most humans would only dream. Honors include leading a Super Bowl halftime event, a 15 year TV commercial career, and actually pulling a sled full of beer from St Louis, Mo, to NYC on New Years for the ball drop. The Clydesdale's join the Famous frogs, long time Marathon retirees Bud, Weis, and Er.
