Stanley and Kay Wilburn, who’ve been married 35 years, are taking on a new adventure as they open Half Throttle Saloon next door to their conveniences store, Stateline One Stop, on Stateline Road between Taft and Ardmore in southwestern Lincoln County.

“Fifteen years ago, after working for other people and companies, we decided to open our own convenience store,” said Stanley last week, referring to their store, Stateline One Stop. “For the past 15 years, we have been happy to serve our local community and friends that we’ve made through the years.”

“But now, we’ve decided to take a new adventure in the business world,” continued Kay. As a result, the building has undergone extensive renovation to make way for Half Throttle Saloon, which will also feature televisions and pool tables for folks to enjoy.

“We are planning to have our grand opening on May 18,” she added, noting that the opening will be marked with free barbecue while supplies last. “We will also be taking donations for the local volunteer fire department and a close neighbor and friend who is battling cancer.

“Everyone come out and join us as we celebrate this adventure in the Wilburn Family journey!” she added. “Hope to see all of Lincoln County and our surrounding areas there!”
