Auto Vue to close after next year

December 10, 2012

In 2013 the Colville’s Auto Vue Drive-in theater will celebrate its 60th birthday, and its retirement party at the same time. Owner Steve Wisner said he will not re-open the drive-in after the summer of 2013 because he can neither afford new technology or repairs to the movie screen.
To stay in business, Wisner must buy a new digital processor for the drive-in that will cost $82,000. Movie suppliers will make the switch from 35 mm film to a digital format after 2013, and Wisner will not be able to buy movies on film for his processor any longer.

Day 1: Sept. 27, 2012

My dear wife Shelley seemed a little cranky to me the past couple of days. I now know that she was missing me already. She doesn’t like being alone at night. I understand that. I don’t like it either. I would rather take her along with me. Next time?

Making her own way

October 31, 2012

Patricia “Pat” Abbott looks out the window of her home on Corbett Creek Road. The mist outside hangs low on the hills that surround the cluster of houses that dot this rural thoroughfare, Deer make the rounds from yard to yard, starting with the weather- worn grass in Abbott’s expansive yard.
“It’s not what I would call your typical coffee clutch neighborhood,” Abbott says. “People will help you if you need help, but for the most part, we’re all pretty independent.”
