Local News

Monday, March 3l

The Cloud Theater on Gordon Street will close at the end of this month, but this important piece of real estate won't be closed for long. The building has been sold to the Lakehurst Cinema Society (LCS). According to LCS Executive Director Kartik Malla, the group is planning to make some updates to the building before it reopens. He explained that the seats, screens, and sound systems will be replaced in all of the theaters. —[1]—.

"However," Mr. Malla added, “we'll be keeping one of the Cloud Theater's old projectors so we can continue to show classic films in their original format.”

Up to now, the Cloud Theater has played mainly art house, independent, and foreign films. —[2]—. The former owner, Mr. Eugene Sattler, who has now retired, always sought to make the Cloud Theater a haven for artistic films. He was successful for many years, but ticket sales have declined in recent years and he decided it was time to sell. —[3]—.

"This was a hard decision to make," said Mr. Sattler. "I will miss working at the theater. I am happy the LCS is going to bring new life to the old theater."

Under its new ownership, the theater will continue to show those artistic types of movies on special occasions. It will also show more mainstream movies that will appeal to families and children.

The society plans to reopen the theater to the public on July 1. In addition, it will continue to serve as host for the classic film festival that begins the first weekend in August and continues for ten days. Everything about the festival will remain the same except for one thing. Formerly called the Gordon Street Film Festival, it will now be known as the Lakehurst Cinema Society Film Festival. —[4]—.

154. What is suggested about the Cloud Theater?
155. According to the article, what was difficult for Mr. Sattler?

A Long-Lasting Love for Books

February 29—Both in and around Pine Hill, Alfred Carlson, who has been teaching Russian literature at Pine Hill State University for twenty years, is probably best known as the owner of The Treasure Box, the town's oldest bookstore. The store has two unique features: it specializes in rare books and is open for business on Saturdays only. Evidently, walk-in sales make up only a small percentage of Mr. Carlson's business; the bulk of the store's revenue is generated by orders placed over the telephone or online by universities, museums, and private collectors.

On Sunday The Treasure Box will be celebrating its sixtieth anniversary. "When my mother, Willisa, opened the bookstore all those years ago on Green Edge Road, two blocks from here, she probably had no idea it would still be serving the public six decades later," Mr. Carlson said. The store still displays the original sign over the doorway. The interior retains the living-room atmosphere it always had. with its mismatched tables and chairs. One section of the store is filled with books about baseball, an abiding passion of the Carlson family. On Friday nights the store becomes an informal social club. Not surprisingly, members tend to enjoy conversation about rare hooks, literature, and baseball.

Later this month Mr. Carlson will mark another milestone: he will be retiring from his teaching position. His retirement does not mean, however, that The Treasure Box will see extended business hours; it will continue to be open once a week. "I am not retiring from one job just so that I can spend more time on another," Mr. Carlson said. "Rather, the fact that I no longer will have to prepare for classes or grade students' papers means that I will be able to dedicate more time to my children and grandchildren.”

Program | Registration | Sponsorships | Comments

At the recent ACIC Symposium I gave a presentation on the intricacies of buying automated machinery. Not only was my lecture well attended, during the subsequent question-and-answer session I was compelled to cover material that I had deliberately omitted from the presentation, fearing it would be too complicated. Clearly the audience was far more competent than I had anticipated. Additionally, in my capacity as a recruiter, I interviewed a dozen candidates for a critical position at my company. This initial experience with the ACIC symposium was utterly gratifying and I’m looking forward to the next edition.

CORDOVA (May 6)Cordova city officials have begun preliminary discussions about what to do with Lowell Street Bridge, a historic city landmark that is in dire need of an upgrade. While costly restoration options are being considered, several factors make demolition a more likely outcome.

"It's a tough decision and one we don't intend to make hastily." said city planner Colin Barnwell. "So far, it seems that replacing the bridge makes the most financial sense."

Price isn't the only consideration, however. According to structural engineer Steve Pacheneo, traffic flow is another important factor. "Highway 49 will soon be broadened from two lanes to four. Then, Lowell Street Bridge will no longer be able to accommodate the increase in vehicles." he said, "The way I see it, a wider, more modern bridge is inevitable."

For residents who want to share their opinions and ideas, the city council will be holding a public input session at Helman Square next Thursday at 11:00 A.M.

Letters to the Editor

May 7—I'm writing in response to yesterday’s article about Lowell Street Bridge. This bridge is an invaluable part of Cordova’s cultural identity and it is in the city's best interest to keep it intact. Considering the tremendous amount of income the cultural-heritage-tourism industry brings to the city annually, I would argue that the short-term costs of restoring this historic landmark would be economically worthwhile.

Subject: Lowell Street Bridge Update

Dear CPS Members,

Congratulations! Thanks to our strong community presence at the city council event, and after countless phone calls to city council members, it looks like Lowell Street Bridge Will not be demolished after all! The Cordova Times published an article today stating that the city is now planning to relocate the bridge to the Eastside cultural district, where it will be used for foot traffic rather than motor vehicles.

This decision is surely due in part to the fact that each of you voiced your opinions last Thursday.

Thanks again.
