8B Wednesday, May 12, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter THEATER, from page 6B People crafty with the needle and thread can also make a border out of felt or luxurious inky dark black velvet. This black border creates a crisp edge for the movie and seems to make the image brighter and more vivid in hue. For audio, we took an am- plified surround-sound stereo system and spliced and sol- dered wires into submission. We needed RCA cables, but should not have heeded the big hardware store guy's advice to buy the cheaper 16- guage wire without the famous name brand in audio video cable solutions. The cheaper wire is just not as good when it comes to sound quality -- there's a slight buzz in the background when higher volumes are used. So there's a hint -- buy the Monster wire or another well-known brand in home theater and sound systems. The wire comes in rolls of 50 to 100 feet. For our application, we used metal wire molding, with minimal screwing required. A preferable method might be to go underground with PVC conduit in an outdoor application, or through the floor and walls, if one knew how/to do that kind of thing we didn't. The molding was easy to figure out on our own. The ensuing movies were a huge success with the folks who came for the preview test-movie, Disney's "Earth," and then our first Free Movie Night, when we showed Nick- elodeon's "Hotel For Dogs." Now that we have had the screen up for a couple weeks, we noticed one more adjust- ment needed: a center sup- port hook will have to be added to keep the screen from sagging in the middle. We'll have to paint that black too, so it's not a distraction. Those interested in seeing the movie screen in use can stop by the Greenville United Methodist Church social hall on the second and fourth Saturdays through June. A matinee is shown at 4 p.m., followed by a late show at 7 p.m. On the fourth Saturdays, two different movies are shown, a kid-friendly mati- nee feature followed by a more mature film later. And in between the two movies on that lburth Satur- day, a simple supper will be offered. After that, plans are to show movies outside at night, though dates and times had not been set as of press time. Movies are free, and snacks are available for nominal donations: between 25 cents and $1. h's not jus00 their tractors tha deep into two counties The final test of the do-it-yourself theater is sitting a group of kids down in front of a movie, which for the debut of Free Movie Night in Greenville was "Hotel for Dogs."

Photo by Alicia Knadler BUSINESS ROBERTS TRucK & TRACTOR Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor Vernon and Marion Roberts .were both born and raised locally, Vernoh on the Lassen County side of Lake Almanor and Marion in Plumas. They met via mutual friend Joe Knadler and have been hard at work as a partnership ever since. They became contractor in 1996, after Vernon had worked for Ford Construc- tion in Rend for several years, which began with con- struction of the High Desert Prison. With a general engineering license in two states, they have traveled far for some of their jobs, the largest of which was construct ion of huge, multi-million-gallon water and wastewater treatment systems at the Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino near Yosemite, which included a 40,000 gallon-a-minute fire suppression system. Roberts and Quincy plumber John Kuipers were the lead contractors on that job. One of the biggest jobs Vernon Roberts has ever had, so far, was done with Quincy plumber John Kuipers. They were the lead contractors in the construction of multi-million-gallon stor- age capacity drinking and wastewater treatment systems at the Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino near Yosemite. Photo submitted They have also constructed other private and municipal public utilities, like in- stalling 32 miles of big pipe in Wendover and the West- wood Sewer Main Project in 2003. "That was a big job," Vernon said.
