Trail Theater opening soon (copy)

Co-owner Andy Montee is working to re-open the historic Trail Theater.

On North Ninth Street, the exterior of the Trail Theater appears ready to gleam anew.

Perhaps the reopening will rekindle memories of May 4, 1951, when the art deco theater opened with a showing of “Father’s Little Dividend” starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor.

I agree with this article. Some middle ground needs to be found. All the buildings can not be saved nor should they all be torn down. A my way or the highway mentality will not solve most issues. Same could be said for the majority of people in our country. If you don’t agree with the people whose views are the opposite of yours, more often than not, you get called a liar or much worse.
