Andy moved to the Valley to celebrate the Millennium and has not looked back. So he doesn’t know if anyone is following. He hasn’t moved in years although his mailing address keeps changing as townships change boundaries. he grew up in the city and has a hard time learning the subtleties of hunting, ice fishing, and proper use of the word “youse”. He lives in a log house in the middle of nowhere and is learning how to be a crazy cat person.
Steve is a Valley lad who works for a Valley newspaper and has seen
it all. He loves all things local but has a jaundiced view of local
politics and gossip as a result of years as a reporter, during which
time, he has seen it all.
Steve is played by Ish Theilheimer, a local from-away, who has lived
in the Valley long enough to have become a local character as a
journalist, songwriter, playwright and performer and to know he will
never be considered truly local.
