HEADLINES
WHAT DOES AMERICA'S COUNTRYSIDE LOOK  LIKE? WE'LL BREAK DOWN THE LATEST FARM COUNT. AS FARMERS STRUGGLE TO FIND LABOR, WE'LL SEE HOW SOON DRIVERLESS  TECHNOLOGY COULD REACH YOUR FARM. IT WAS A CONCEPT, WHERE THE FUTURE COULD BE. IN AGRIBUSINESS, IF COMMODITY PRICES START TO FALL, THE BOND MARKET  COULD BE A WAY TO MAKE SOME MONEY. AND A FARMING COMMUNITY PULLS TOGETHER TO SAVE ONE OF THE LAST  ICONIC MOVIE-HOUSES IN THE COUNTRY. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY  SILVERADO.

NATIONAL FARM MACHINERY SHOW CHALLENGES
GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN. CLINTON GRIFFITHS IS ON ASSIGNMENT.  IT'S  PRESIDENT'S DAY SO GOVERNMENT OFFICES AND THE MARKETS ARE CLOSED  TODAY. TOPPING OUR NEWS - A NEW GOVERNMENT REPORT SHOWS THE  NUMBER OF FARMS IN THIS COUNTRY CONTINUES TO SHRINK. THE AG DEPARTMENT'S ANNUAL OVERVIEW OF FARM PROPERTIES  SHOWS THE  NUMBER OF FARMS IN THE U-S IS JUST OVER TWO MILLION FARMS, DOWN EIGHT  THOUSAND FARMS FROM THE YEAR PRIOR. TOTAL LAND IN FARMS, AT 911 MILLION ACRES, DOWN A MILLION ACRES. THE NATIONAL AVERAGE FARM SIZE FOR 2016 IS 442 ACRES, UP 1 ACRE FROM THE  PREVIOUS YEAR.  THE BIGGEST CHANGES FOR 2016 ARE FOR FARMS BETWEEN A QUARTER AND A  HALF MILLION DOLLARS IN SALES. THOSE ACRES ARE UP ABOUT ONE-POINT- THREE MILLION ACRES. BUT THE BIGGEST PRODUCERS - THOSE WITH SALES OVER A MILLION DOLLARS - SAW FARM ACRES DROP BY ABOUT A MILLION ACRES. FARMERS ARE LOOKING AT WAYS THAT THEY CAN REDUCE THEIR PER UNIT COST OF PRODUCTION. SO  FARMS LIKE ANY OTHER BUSINESS ONE WAY THEY APPROACH THAT IS TO CONSOLIDATE. ONE FARM TAKES  OVER ANOTHER FARM AND USES THE MACHINERY AND LABOR IT HAS TO SPREAD THOSE RESOURCES OVER MORE UNITS OF PRODUCTION THE COST OF PRODUCTION GOES DOWN.ONE CROP STRUGGLING WITH KEEPING ACRES IS TOBACCO. KENTUCKY AG COMMISION RYAN QUARLES TELLING ME TOBACCO RELIES  HEAVILY ON EXPORTS. AND AS THE CROP CONTINUES TO GET NIXED FROM TRADE  DEALS, IT'S TAKING ITS TOLL ON ACRES IN THE STATE. HISTORICALLY, TOBACCO IS KING IN KENTUCKY AND AT OUR PEAK WE HAD 85 THOUSAND  DIFFERENT TOBACCO FARMS. NOW, WE HAVE ABOUT 45 HUNDRED PEOPLE ENGAGED IN RAISING  TOBACCO. ."QUARLES SAYS TOBACCO IS VERY LABOR INTENSIVE. MOST ESTIMATES SAY IT  REQUIRES ROUGHLY 250 HOURS OF MANUAL LABOR FOR EACH AND EVERY ACRE  OF TOBACCO IN KENTUCKY.  TRUMP'S STANCE ON IMMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION REFORM IS SHAKING  THINGS UP IN WASHINGTON. BUT IT ALSO HAS THE AG INDUSTRY WORRIED ABOUT  LOSING EVEN MORE LABOR. I CAUGHT UP WITH AMERICAN FARM BUREAU PRESIDENT ZIPPY DUVALL IN  KENTUCKY LAST WEEK, HE SAYS AS PLANTING SEASON APPROACHES, THE  WORKERS ARE NEEDED NOW. HE CALLS THE H2A PROGRAM BROKEN, SAYING  THE IMMIGRATION BATTLE IN WASHINGTON IS PUTTING EVEN MORE STRAIN ON  THE SYSTEM TODAY.  IT NEEDS TO BE SIMPLIFIED AND IT NEEDS TO BE NOT SO EXPENSIVE TO THEM AND WE NEED TO TALK  ABOUT ADJUSTING THE STATUS FOR THE EXPERIENCED WORKERS WHO HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 20 YEARS.  DUVALL SAYS HE THINKS THE H-2-A PROGRAM CAN BE FIXED, BUT IT WILL LOOK  MUCH DIFFERENT THAN IT DOES TODAY.  WHILE SOME GROUPS HOPE IT'S POLICY THAT CAN FIX THE ISSUE OF FINDING  ENOUGH LABOR, OTHERS ARE TURNING TO TECHNOLOGY. DURING THE NATIONAL FARM MACHINERY SHOW LAST WEEK IN LOUISVILLE  KENTUCKY, I WAS ON THE QUEST FOR THE ANSWER OF WHEN AUTONOMOUS  TRACTORS COULD TURN INTO REALITY.  SELF DRIVING CARS ARE THE BUZZ AMONG CONSUMERS, BUT IN AGRICULTURE,  IT'S A CONCEPT THAT'S BEEN AROUND FOR MORE THAN 5 YEARS.  IOWA BASED EQUPMENT MAKER KINZE BLAZING  THE PATH, INTRODUCING AN  AUTONOMOUS GRAIN CART IN 2011, WITH TESTING HITTING FIELDS IN 2012.   IGHT NOW IT'S STILL CURRENTLY IN THE TESTING PROCESS, BUT WITH EACH DAY WE GET A LITTLE CLSOER TO  REALITY.AND LAST YEAR, CASE IH CATCHING HEADLINES FOR ITS AUTONOMOUS CONCEPT  VEHICLE, A DRIVERLESS AND CABLESS TRACTOR.  IT WAS A CONCEPT, WHERE THE FUTURE COULD BE.CASE'S CONCEPT SPORTING A SLEEK, CUTTING EDGE LOOK. BUT THE CONCEPT  IS FAR FROM REALITY. THERE'S A LOT OF THOSE CONCEPTS BEING BROUGHT INTO OUR EQUIPMENT THAT WE HAVE TODAY AND  WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TODAY.CASE RECENTLY INTORDUCING AFS ACCUTURN, WHICH ALLOWS HAND FREE  TURNING AT THE END OF FIELD ROWS.  A LOT OF HTE ALGORYTHMS AND THE LOGIC BEHIDN WHAT WAS IN TEH ACV, IS ACTUALLY PART OF HTE  ACCURTURN SOFTWARE. AND WHILE KINZE WON'T GIVE A RELEASE DATE FOR IT'S AUTONMOUS GRAIN  CART THAT'S BEEN IN TESTING FOR SEVERAL YEARS, THE COMPANY SAYS IT'S ALL  TO HELP MEET GROWERS NEEDS.  I'VE SEEN IN A FATHER SON OPERATION WHERE THEIR ACRES ARE HIGH ENOUGH THEY NEED SOME  EXTRA HELP WITHOUT HAVING TO GO OUT AND GET THE HELP.BUT FULLY AUTONMOUS VEHICLES ISN'T A VENTURE JOHN DEERE IS WILLING TO  PUBLICLY JUMP INTO JUST YET, INSTEAD WORKING TO REFINE AND BUILD UPON THE TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE TODAY.  SO I STILL THINK WE'VE GOT AN OPPOTUNITY TO LOOK AT HOW DO WE MAKE THIS EASIER, HOW DO WE  MAKE IT SMARTER, HOW DO WE MAKE IT MORE PRECISE, AND AS WE LAY THAT GROUNDWORK, OEN OF  HTE QUESTIONS WILL BE ARE WE GOING TO MOVE TO AN AUTONOUS ENVIROMENT. WE BELIEVE OUR  CUSTOMERS TELL US WHEN THEY'RE READY FOR THAT OR IF THEY'RE READY FGOR THAT"FLORES SAYS IT'S SOME OF TODAY'S TECHONOLOGY HELPING TO MAKE LIFE ON  THE FARM EVEN MROE EFFICIENT.  TODAY YOU LOOK AT REMOTE DISPLAY ACCESS, YOU MAY HAVE AN OPERTOR IN TEH CAB THAT SIMPLY  DOESN'T REMEMBER WHICH BUTTONS THEY SHOULD BE PUSHING ON THAT DISPLAY ON THAT COSOLE, YOU  CAN BE IN YORU TRUCK ON A DIFFERENT FARM SITE, PULL UP THE LAPTOP, PULL UP THE TABLET ITSELF, AND  BE ABLE TO SEE THE SCREEN IN TEH CAB AND BE ABLE TO WALK THEM THROUGH THOSE STEPS.  BUT FOR FARMERS WANTING TO SIT IN THE SEAT OF A TRACTOR JUST AS THEIR  FATHER DID, WORKING THE LAND AND RUNNING HTE EQUIPMENT, AUTONOMY   HAS NO APPEAL. AND THAT LACK OF INTEREST COULD ULTIMATELY DRIVE THE  FUTURE OF DRIVERLESS MACHINES.  COMPANIES SAY REGIONS WITH THE BIGGEST NEED FOR LABOR RELIEF INCLUDE  THE SOUTHWEST. AND THAT'S WHERE AUTONOMOUS EQUIPMENT COULD GAIN  THE MOST TRACTION. 

SCOTT PRUITT CONFIRMED
IN A 52-TO-46 VOTE, THE SENATE CONFIRMED SCOTT PRUITT AS THE NEXT  ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY. DURING HIS  TIME AS OKLAHOMA'S ATTORNEY GENERAL, PRUITT FILED 14 LAWSUITS AGAINST  E-P-A. THE NCBA SAID IN A STATEMENT THAT PRUITT WILL - QUOTING NOW - "RESTORE  SOME COMMON SENESE TO ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY."

CROP COMMENTS
IT'S BEEN A WARM COUPLE OF DAYS IN THE MIDWEST- MIKE HOFFMAN HAS A  LOOK AT CONDITIONS IN FARM COUNTRY.  GOOD MORNING, TYNE.  THIS FIRST PICTURE IS FROM A VIEWER IN SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA.  HE SAYS TEMPERATURES ARE WARMER THAN USUAL- THE HIGHS WERE IN THE  60S OVER THE WEEKEND! THE STREAMS ARE FLOWING AND GEESE ARE FLYING- NOT SOMETHING THAT'S  NORMAL TO SEE IN FEBRUARY. AND MARIA COX IS HAULING MANURE IN WHITE HALL, ILLINOIS.  SHE SAYS IT'S BEEN A NICE COUPLE OF DAYS TO SPEND OUTSIDE AS WELL.  TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN IN THE SIXITIES AND EVEN LOW 70S.  AND NOW HERE'S A LOOK AT SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS.  AGDAY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN.  WITH A UNIQUELY POWERFUL  FORMULATION OF PROVEN INGREDIENTS, RESICORE GIVES YOU EXTRAORDINARY POWER OVER WEEDS.  LEARN MORE AT POWEROVERWEEDS.COM.

NEXT IN ANALYSIS, WE LOOK AT HOW YOU CAN USE THE BOND MARKET TO YOUR  ADVANTAGE. BILL BIEDERMANN OF ALLENDALE OFFERS HIS INSIGHT. PLUS  MACHINERY PETE CHECKS-IN. AND YOU WON'T FIND A MULTI-SCREEN COMPLEX AT THIS NORTH DAKOTA  THEATER.  AND THE LOCALS SEEM JUST FINE WITH THAT. SAVING THE SILVER-SCREEN, LATER ON AGDAY. THE NEXT GENERATION OF HEAVY DUTY ENGINE OILS ARE HERE.  INTRODUCING DELO 400 WITH  ISOSYN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY.  THE NEW DELO 400 PRODUCT LINE IS BIGGER AND BETTER THAN  EVER.

AGRIBUSINESS
AS THE U-S DOLLAR STRENGTHENS, HOW CAN YOU USE THE BOND MARKET TO  YOUR ADVANTAGE.  DURING LAST WEEK'S NATIONAL FARM MACHINERY SHOW, I  TALKED WITH BILL BIEDERMANN ABOUT SUCH A MOVE. HERE NOW WITH BILL BIEDERMANN OF ALANDALE ON AGDAY A BILL THAT THE U S DOLLAR AND INTEREST  RATES I MEAN THERE 'S SO MUCH RHETORIC ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW YELLEN RECENTLY TESTIFIED IN FRONT OF  CONGRESS. IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE GOING TO SEE MORE INTEREST RATE HIKES. ULTIMATELY WHAT DOES THIS  MEAN WELL FOR THE FARM COMMUNITY IT MEANS TWO THINGS IF YOU'RE BORROWING MONEY REALLY  PROBABLY OUGHT TO LOCK IN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN WE'VE BEEN SAYING THAT FOR A LONG TIME BUT THE  BOND MARKET IS STILL VERY HIGH. I E INTEREST RATES ARE VERY CHEAP ON SELLING THE BOND MARKET IS  ONE WAY TO HEDGE YOUR PROTECTION ANOTHER WAYS TO ROLL EVERYTHING IN THE LONG TERM DEBT  LOCKING IN ON A FIXED RATE. SO THERE 'S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO DO IT. THAT SHOULD BE DONE.  INTEREST RATES ARE GOING TO GO HIGHER BECAUSE OF THE TRUMP ECONOMIC FISCAL POLICY SO UNTIL  THEY GET ALL OF THESE CORPORATIONS BACK IN HERE AND HIGHER INTEREST RATES TO KEEP THE DOLLAR  STRONG AND MONEY KEEP FLOWING IN HERE AND THAT 'S NOT GOING TO REVERSE UNTIL THE PHASE TWO  OF THE TRUMP THING THAT WEIGHS DOWN THE ROAD RIGHT SO IF WE LOOK GOING IN THAT THE TRUMP  POLICIES AND LOOKING AT SOME OF THESE CHANGES WE SEE SOME GROWING PAINS AND IF SO HOW  WILL THAT IMPACT US THAT WHILE AGRICULTURE GONNA BE A WHIPPING BOARD FOR THESE POLICIES UNTIL WE GET TO THE BACKSIDE OF ALL SO IN THE PHASE ONE WHERE THEY KEEP THE DOLLAR STRONG. IF WE  HAVE A GOOD CROP THIS YEAR WITH THE SIZE STOCKS WE HAVE RECORD STOCKS IN THE WORLD OF  AGRICULTURE. IT 'S GONNA BE. IT COULD BE A VERY TOUGH ENVIRONMENT ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE TRUMP  THE PHASE TWO OF HIS ECONOMIC POLICIES WHEN HE WOULD REDUCE THE DOLLAR BECOME MORE  COMPETITIVE. OUR EXPORTS WOULD EXPLODE WITH THE WORLD DEMAND AND WE WOULD BE THE FRONT  RUNNER SO WHAT IF HE DOES REDUCE WEARY CITIES THESE POLICIES REDUCE THE DOLLAR. WERE YOU  TALKING WHAT LEVEL WELL WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO STAY RIGHT NOW IN THE FIRST PHASE IN THE NINETIES  SEVEN TO ONE O THREE RANGE WHICH HISTORICALLY IS REALLY HERE THAT THAT 'S ONLY HAPPENED TWICE  SINCE NINETEEN EIGHTY IN BOTH TIMES WHEN WE HAVE LARGE STOCKS COMBINED WITH THE PRICES  WENT DOWN A LOT WHAT I MEAN LIKE LIKE WE'RE MORE THAN MOST PEOPLE ARE SAYING AND SO I AM  HOPING THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN RIGHT NOW. OUR FORECAST IS FOR ABOUT EIGHTY SIXTY BEAN MARKET BUT  YOU KNOW IT COULD BE A LONGER TERM ROUGH ROAD IF THINGS GO WELL ALL RIGHT.

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY CREDENZ SOYBEAN SEED FROM BAYER. WELCOME BACK, IT 'S TIME NOW FOR A CHECK OF WEATHER WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE,  MANY OF OUR VIEWERS REALLY ENJOYING SOME MILD TEMPERATURES OUT THERE BUT YOU KNOW HOW  LONG WE REALLY CAN THAT LAST HERE IN FARM COUNTRY? WHY YOU WOULDN'T THINK VERY LONG BUT A LOT  OF PLACES IT'S GOING TO LAST WEEK IN THIS CASE BUT WE ARE GONNA START TO TURN COLDER IN THE  NORTHERN PLAINS LATER THIS WEEK. AND SOME DECENT RAINS HAVE HIT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY  OBVIOUSLY WITH THOSE WARMER TEMPERATURES IS WELL. WEST COAST, YOU JUST KEEP GETTING STORM  SYSTEMS COMING IN AND SO WE'RE SEEING SOME DECENT AMOUNTS THERE. BUT AS YOU TAKE A LOOK  AT THE SOUTHERN PLAINS ESPECIALLY MUCH OF EASTERN AND NORTHERN TEXAS INTO OKLAHOMA.  ALSO ACROSS NORTHERN ARKANSAS IN THE WESTERN TENNESSEE. SOME POCKETS OF ONE TO TWO  INCHES, BUT IN GENERAL AND A HALF INCH TO AN INCH IN MOST OF THAT AREA FROM HOUSTON ON UP  TOWARD DALLAS TEXAS, OKLAHOMA CITY AND OVER TOWARDS MEMPHIS. SO, A DECENT AMOUNT OF RAIN AND YOU HAVE  SOME MORE COMING RIGHT NOW. AS A MATTER OF FACT WE ARE SEEING A DECENT STORM SYSTEM  MOVING THROUGH THE SOUTHLAND WITHOUT FIRST TROUGH BUT THE AMAZING PART ABOUT THE JET STREAM  IS THIS HUGE RIDGE THAT BROUGHT THE RECORD BREAKING WARMTH TO MANY PARTS OF THE PLAINS STATES  NOT INTO THE GREAT LAKES AND OHIO VALLEY  AND IN MANY PARTS OF NORTHEAST EXCEPT NEW ENGLAND.  NOW, AS WE HEAD THROUGH TIME WHAT ARE GOING TO SEE IS THAT WE DON'T SEE A BIG BLAST OF COLD  AIR COMING THROUGH THE MIDDLE THE WEEK, NO QUESTION BECAUSE IT KIND OF GOES ZONAL. YOU CAN  SEE THAT ON THE JET STREAM FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. SO, THE ARCTIC AIR GETS BOTTLED UP HERE. THAT STORM SYSTEM DOES KIND OF WEAKEN, AT LEAST THE FIRST ONE WILL A LITTLE BIT AS IT MOVES OFF TO THE EAST. THEN YOU CAN SEE AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE WEEK, THE NEXT STORM COMES OUT TO THE  WEST.  IT STARTS TO DEVELOP A PRETTY GOOD TROUGH WITH IT INTO THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY. THAT WILL BE A SHOT OF COLDER AIR COMING IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES FIRST AND EVENTUALLY THE NORTHERN PLAINS LATER  THIS WEEK. AND IN THAT STORM SYSTEM REALLY GETS GOING AS WE HAD THREE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY  OVER THE GREAT LAKES.  AND A LOOKS LIKE A FAIRLY GOOD SHOT OF COLD AIR COMING TO THE NORTHERN TIER STATES. BUT NOTICE  HOW IT FLATTENS OUT HERE SO IT'S NOT GOING TO GO REAL FAR SOUTH.  YOU FOLKS IN THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT NOT GOING TO SEE MUCH OF THAT COLD AIR. SO THE WEEK 'S  TEMPERATURE FORECASTS FOR ABOVE NORMAL BASICALLY EVERYWHERE EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE.  BUT IT WILL START TO TURN COLDER LATER IN THE WEEK. UP IN THIS AREA NORTHERN PLAINS  IT WILL BE BELOW NORMAL FOR THE MOST PART MOST, MOST OF THE WEST COAST ALSO IDAHO AND NEVADA  INCLUDED IN THAT AREA AND PRECIPITATION FOR THIS COMING WEEK  A COUPLE STORM SYSTEMS ARE ONE WILL BE MOVING THROUGH THE SOUTH LAND. ANOTHER ONE COMES  IN ACROSS THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE WEST AND THEN THAT MOVES THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES AND  THE NORTHEAST. I'M GOING WELL ABOVE NORMAL IN THAT WHOLE AREA BELOW NORMAL FOR THE FAR  NORTHEAST, BELOW NORMAL FOR WEST TEXAS NEW MEXICO SOUTHWESTWARD.  THIRTY DAY OUTLOOK FOR TEMPERATURES ARE NOW GOING BELOW NORMAL FOR THE NORTHERN PLAINS,  WESTERN LAKES ACROSS THE NORTHWEST AND THROUGH THE SOUTHERN TIER OF STATES, ABOVE NORMAL ALL  UP INTO THE MID ATLANTIC STATES AS WELL. PRECIPITATION OVER THE NEXT THIRTY DAYS IS ALWAYS A  TOUGH CALL HERE, GOING NORMAL FOR MOST OF THE CORN BELT  FROM OHIO AND WEST VIRGINIA AND NORTH EASTWARD ABOVE NORMAL IN ALL SO MUCH OF THE WEST  POCATELLO, IDAHO. FIRST OF ALL CLOUDY AND CHILLY. MAYBE A SHOWER IN THE AFTERNOON, HIGH OF FORTY FIVE DEGREES. GREAT BEND, KANSAS MOSTLY CLOUDY AND WARM, A SHOWER POSSIBLE, HIGH OF  SEVENTY ONE AND XENIA, OHIO, PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY AND WARM. THE HIGH ALL THE WAY OF THE  SIXTY EIGHT DEGREES.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - SPONSORED BY KUBOTA.  DISCOVER THE POWER BEHIND THE M6 SERIES AT  KUBOTA.COM.  THE ONLY THEATER IN THE SMALL TOWN OF LISBON, NORTH DAKOTA, IS ICONIC.   THE RURAL MOVIE HOUSE IS FAMOUS FOR HAVING THE LONGEST CONTINUOUS  RUN OF ANY SHOW HALL IN AMERICA.   CLIFF NAYLOR REPORTS ON WHY THE  CURTAIN HAS NEVER COME DOWN AT THIS TREASURE ON THE PRAIRIE. THIS CINEMA HAS BEEN CENTER STAGE IN THIS LITTLE COMMUNITY FOR ALMOST AS LONG AS  HOLLYWOOD HAS BEEN AROUND. ENJOY THE SHOW. THE FIRST MOVIE SHOWN HERE WAS IN 1911, A  SILENT FILM CALLED "NEMO."  LONG TIME CUSTOMERS LIKE WILLIAM SULLIVAN REMEMBER SEEING THOSE  BLACK AND WHITE CLASSICS AT THE SCENIC.  WILLIAM SULLIVAN:   THEY HAD A PIANO DOWN THERE AND  THEY PLAYED THE MUSIC, LIKE WHEN THE HORSES WERE GALLOPING.  MOVIE FANS LIKE DOROTHY HANNA  HOOFED IT TO TAKE IN A SHOW WHEN THE COST OF ADMISSION WAS TEN CENTS.  DOROTHY HANNA:  IN  THE SUMMERTIME MY SISTER AND I USED TO WALK IN FROM THE COUNTRY, ABOUT A HALF MILE AND WE  WENT TO THE SUNDAY MATINEE.  OTHER REGULAR PATRONS RECALL WHEN "TALKIES" FEATURING SILVER  SCREEN STARS WERE FIRST SHOWN.  EVELYN HITCHCOCK:  WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, IT WAS SHIRLEY  TEMPLE AND THERE WERE SOME JOHN WAYNE MOVIES.  EVELYN HITCHCOCK IS 100 YEARS OLD, BUT  SHE STILL ENJOYS SEEING A GOOD OLD FASHIONED FILM JUST LIKE ALMOST EVERYONE ELSE IN TOWN.   THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE COMMUNITY RAISED OVER 100,000 DOLLARS TO INSTALL STATE OF  THE ART DIGITAL PROJECTION EQUIPMENT.  EDIE REINKE:  MY FRIENDS AND I LIKE TO COME HERE, WE  WON'T DRIVE TO FARGO TO SEE A MOVIE.  WE WANT TO SEE THEM HERE IN LISBON, NORTH DAKOTA.  THE CAST OF THE SAVE OUR SCENIC COMMITTEE WAS MADE UP OF MOMS WHO WANTED TO PRESERVE  A PLACE WHERE THEIR KIDS COULD SEE A SHOW.  KARI WEBB:  THIS WAS THE FIRST THEATER THAT MY  PARENTS TOOK ME TO, IT WAS THE FIRST MOVIE I TOOK MY SON TO AND IT'S A FAMILY ORIENTED PLACE TO  HANG OUT.  THE SCENIC IS OPEN WEEKENDS AND IS ONE OF THE FEW THEATERS IN THE COUNTRY THAT  SERVES UP POPCORN TOPPED WITH REAL BUTTER. BETTY MICHELS: WE GO THROUGH QUITE A FEW POUNDS  ON A WEEKEND BUT IT'S WORTH IT. HOW LONG CAN THIS LITTLE CINEMA ON THE PRAIRIE CONTINUE TO STAY  OPEN? ALFRED MICHELS:  HOPEFULLY IT WILL STAY HERE FOREVER.  WE'VE COMMITTED TO KEEPING IT  RUNNING AS LONG AS WE CAN.  GUARANTEES LIKE THAT ARE SURE TO GET RAVE REVIEWS FROM THIS AUDIENCE. I'M CLIFF NAYLOR REPORTING FOR AGDAY .VOLUNTEERS PLAY A ROLE IN HELPING THIS FAMILY-OWNED THEATER STAY OPEN.   A SUPPORTING CAST OF LOCALS DONATE THEIR TIME AT THE CONCESSION  STAND AND BOX OFFICE TO HELP THE OWNERS MAKE ENDS MEET.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR MIKE HOFFMAN, AND ALL OF US AT AGDAY. I'M TYNE MORGAN HAVE A GREAT DAY.
