Barred Owl

Barred Owl

Today I went walking along the outer edges of our coverage area, wanting to see Minnehaha Falls encased in ice and having heard rumors of snowy owls in the neighborhood. Walking along the creek the crows alerted me to this barred owl who they were pestering. These owls blend in beautifully to the winter landscape and it’s such a treat to spot them.

I’ve seen numerous films at the Riverview Theater and nearly as many community events. This is an amazing theater. And this is Jake Halverson, Riverview Theater’s jack of all tradesman, who has worked for the theater for over 6 years. When asked why he works for the theater, he said, “There’s a certain level of loyalty [among the patrons] you cannot deny…people know they’re not just a number here but have a name.”
