Theatre I & II to close in February

January 19, 2012

Wayne Loberg, owner of local movie house The Theatre I & II, revealed in an email Thursday that The Theatre will be closing its doors for good Thursday, Feb. 2.  

Loberg said that after working at the theater for nearly 30 years, he has reached retirement age. He stated regretfully in his email, "The economics of the movie business are such that continued operation is just not feasible. The numbers don't lie, and the Valley City moviegoing market simply can't sustain the huge cost necessary to keep a movie theater operating here. Sad but seemingly inevitable."

Twins bring big-league conversation to Valley City

January 19, 2012

As Ron Gardenhire stood up and took the microphone at Trestle's Bar and Grill Tuesday, he saw a bear out of the corner of his eye.
The brown bear, just over seven feet tall, was only feet from numerous Valley City residents and mulling around the platters of beans, grilled hot dogs and potato chips.

Fortunately for the bear, Gardenhire, Manager of the Minnesota Twins baseball team, saw him first.
"T.C., you know they do shoot things out here?" Gardenhire said to the team's jersey-clad mascot. "You've got to get away from the hotdogs."
