Head for cover! Don Knotts and Tim Conway are Wild West outlaws who can't hit the broad side of a barn -- but never miss when it comes to rounding up laughs!


The hilarity begins when a roving bachelor (Bill Bixby) inherits three young orphans and a wealth of problems. When the youngsters stumble upon a huge golden nugget, they must fend off the greedy townspeople. So the kids join forces with the bumbling outlaws.



Downtown Revitalization Committee Hosts First Family Movie Night

James H. Johnson

On Saturday night, September 13, the Gleason Downtown Revitalization Committee hosted its first Family Movie Night at Huggins Park. The featured movie was Facing the Giants, a  PG rated family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who, in several years of coaching, has never had a winning season.  Just as he is finding some reason to believe that the upcoming season might be better, his hopes are squelched when the best player on his team transfers to another school.

After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, the coach has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure. However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, the coach and members of his team discovers how faith plays out on the field… and off.

This first Family Movie Night film sponsored by the Downtown Revitalization Committee, got things off to a good start, despite the unseasonably cool to borderline cold temperatures during the evening. More than 75 people came dressed for the occasion to see the movie, socialize with neighbors, and enjoy some great hamburgers, cold drinks, coffee, hot chocolate, and popcorn as well as cookies and other snacks that could be purchased at the concession stand. The one dollar per-person admission fee automatically entered everyone in drawings for various prizes.

Plans are for additional Family Movie Nights to be scheduled during warm weather months - Watch this website for announcements.
