Jim Walter, president of Toledo-based Great Eastern Theatre company, has Playboy magazine’s list of Top 10 drive-ins in his office, and it includes Oregon’s Sundance Kid on Navarre Ave.

Walter’s company took over the Sundance in the 1990s, and it is one of only 350 drive-ins still operating in the United States today. But Great Eastern has never faced a challenge like they do now, because high winds took down one of Sundance’s screen towers the evening of Nov. 17.

Nonetheless, Walter says the theatre should be up and running with two screens by spring.

• Live Reindeer will be on display in the heart of downtown. Owner Ron Disher and his staff will be on hand to answer questions about the unique animals and their role in helping Santa pull his sleigh.

It didn’t take long for Lallendorf Road residents to go to each other’s aid after an EF2 tornado made its way through the neighborhood, taking apart roofs and carrying other debris with it.

The storm hit about 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17, and within minutes Anita and Jeffrey Jacobs were checking on their neighbors, Robert and Patricia Zeller.

“We were eating dinner and we had the TV on in the kitchen and was listening to it, and I went out on the back deck and listened, and it was really still, and then my husband went out and he thought it had a weird smell,” Anita said.
