Beach Show House struggling with low attendance By Richard Volesky Editor/Reporter Due to low attendance at movies, the owner of the Bijou Show House in Beach says he's moving toward the idea of no longer showing movies on a weekly basis. Movies that are believed to have the potential of drawing a large number of customers may be sched- uled on a movie-by-movie basis instead, assuming that movie dis- tributors will be on board with pro- viding film on a non-regular sched- ule. said Emanuel Culman. Culman. with the help of a USDA grant and his own money, made major technological improve- ments to the building's equipment last year. "I do this with deep regret," Culman said in a let- ter to the Golden Valley News. "My first love in the arts is movies. My origi- nal intent was to maintain showing movies while introducing the other technologies. I will miss seeing the 'faithful' who come to see almost every movie because, they, like me, love the form. To them I offer my sincere apologies for taking this step." He said owning and operating ,the Bijou Show House has been thrilling on many counts and that it " I will miss seeing the 'faithful' who come to see almost every movie because, they, like me, love the form." Emanuel Culman has been an opportunity to meet and know the people from southwestern North Dakota and southeastern Montana. "When Margaret Walz agreed to sell me the theater, she passed on 60 years of ownership by one family. Wreaking the changes has been a mighty task, but there were well worn paths to follow. Now the time has come to consider a major change for the Bijou," said Culman. "When I fi r s t approached the prospects of buying the the- ater, I was encouraged to design a business plan. Part of the plan was to estimate how revenue will flow. both out and, more particularly, in. I called on many people in, and out of. the theater business for input. Consensus was to aggregate that about one third of the immediate community*may attend once per month. Thus, with a real population figure of 3,000 people within a radius of 25 miles, it was fair to assume 1,000 people. To play it safe, the number was cut to 800 per month." Culman said the costs of operat- ing a theater were difficult to assess. "I was cautioned to be prepared for a two-year duration to grow my attendance. In that period I paid my bills, almost all out of pocket, to a sum total of tens of thousands of dollars." Last year, through Prairie West Development in Beach, Culman sought and received the $92,000 USDA grant"for the building. Struggling (Continued on Page 8) Water pipeline receives funding. Additional funding for the Southwest Water Pipeline will help extend the pipeline's service area, and doing so may benefit existing customers as more customers share in the costs of operating the project. "The $8 million in federal fund- ing for the Southwest Pipeline that was approved by Congress last month will speed up the delivery of good-quality water to southwestern North Dakota counties, and we intend to keep funding it until this project is complete," said Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D. Dorgan delivered his 'message at a Dickinson meeting of water pipeline officials. Dorgan is the chairman of the appropriations panel that funds the nation's Water and energy projects. Dorgan secured $12 million for the Southwest Water Pipeline over the past two years, including the $8 million he added to the fiscal year 2009 bill signed into law last month. Currently, construction is planned to add rural users in the counties of Golden Valley, McKenzie and Dunn counties to the pipeline. The next large segment., which will occur over the next five fiscal years, will be to provide serv- ice in Oliver,_-Mercer and northern Dunn counties to 1,200 rural users and eight communities, including Hazen, Center and Stanton.

Cook Golden Valley News Friday, March 27, a Golden Valley County ambulance was sent to help with the flooding efforts in Fargo/Moorhead. The team of five - Alan Muckle, Lee and Charlene Weinreis. Clay Makelky and Eileen Goodijohn - were called around 9 or 10 p.m., on March 26, and were told that help was needed in transporting patients from hospitals and residents of care centers or nursing homes to places of safety. Charlene Weinreis said the group met with the ambulance board, received the OK to go, and left around midnight on March 27. Because of road conditions, it took them 9 hours to travel to Fargo.
