HUNTINGTON GOES HOLLYWOOD? A group of community members with experience in film, theater and broadcasting is starting to explore the advantages and challenges of making Huntington a more attractive location for the film industry. The effort is coupled with Mayor Steve Williams’ announcement during his State of the City address last month that he is creating a Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting.

LOCAL COMPANY PRAISED FOR SUPERIOR PRODUCT: In his ever-changing industry, one thing that Ronnie Rowe stands behind is the two-sided mattress.

These are some of the principles that are kept sound at Imperial Bedding, Rowe’s mattress manufacturing plant which turns out two-sided mattresses daily in the 1100 block of 7th Avenue in downtown Huntington. Read more about Imperial Bedding in our Sunday Business spotlight.

A CELTIC CELEBRATION: Marshall University music professor Wendell Dobbs will be stirring folks to join him at a symphonic ceili, of sorts, kicking up some old Irish spirit as St. Patrick’s Day approaches. Dobbs, the principle flutist with the Huntington Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Ohio Valley Symphony, will be the featured guest artist at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at the HSO’s final winter season concert, “A Celtic Celebration” at the historic Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center.
