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."

King speech rediscovered by Ohio teacher, student
CLEVELAND (AP) â€” A recording of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is getting new attention after being found in 2010 by an Ohio high school art teacher and student searching through items the school library was discarding.
The 1967 speech preserved on reel-to-reel tape was given, and found, at Glenville High School in Cleveland. In it, King says "Our power does not lie in Molotov cocktails. ... Our power lies in our ability to say nonviolently that we aren't gonna take it any longer."
