COLBY - The Hotel Colby has a new function, a new ownership and a new name.

The building recently was purchased by James Krug, Medford, who soon will be opening Jim's Country Lounge and Steak House.

Krug, who owns the Miracle Mile Diner in Medford, said he plans to run a "Family-priced" steak house with full table service, along with a lounge featuring country and western or country rock music Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The bar and lounge are scheduled to open on Tuesday and the restaurant will open October 11.'"We think we can pull people in from Medford to Marshfield," Krug said. "When you put the restaurant and the music together, it should be a good draw."

Although he is still working on the floor plan, Krug said he is not planning any major remodeling changes for the building. From 20 to 30 people will be employed there.

Once the restaurant/bar operations are underway, Krug said he may convert the upper rooms of the building into a rooming house.
