The reasons rural theaters get movies later is that there are far more movies than screens, plus studios only release a certain number of prints of a particular film and those prints go to big cities first.

Q: Is the man who grew those wonderful tomatoes off Airport Road out of business? If so, is there any chance someone else may replace him?

A: Scott Dahlman, who owned Dahlman Gardens, said there may be someone selling hydroponic tomatoes by July.
