HOUGHTON - Operating an animal shelter is a costly endeavor. There are many different aspects that need to be taken into consideration - food, medical care and staffing the shelter are just a few of the costs. But the Copper Country Humane Society is lucky enough to be in a community where its residents care enough to help out. Two of those residents are Dave and Diana Stimac, who run Nature's Way Woodworking. For the past seven years, they have built coffee tables using a combination of gems, stones and copper from all over the world. They then donate the coffee table to be used in a raffle benefitting the Copper Country Humane Society.
