    It may be exciting for some, but frustrating for others!!! I work downtown and parked on a street that was not blocked off, and couldn’t get to my car to leave, had to stay in town for an extra 2 hours after work on a Sunday night, when I would much rather be at home with my kids!!!!

    Great photos, Griff! And Sissy — as the line producer for the film, on behalf of the production company I sincerely apologize for any extra hassle and inconvenience you experienced today. The crew tried their best to accommodate the needs of downtown businesses and visitors during today’s shoot but we regret that it was an inconvenience to some.

    I witnessed an interesting event Tuesday afternoon, while the filming was going on north of Dundas on Co 78. I was headed out to Cannon City via 78. There was a barricade set up by the drive into the yard-waste dump to keep traffic out of the filming. A mini-van was stopped right in front of me, and the driver was having a heated discussion with one of the young people manning the stop sign. Suddenly, the driver sped through the bypass, with the two young men shouting after her, “Stop, lady!” One of the men radioed to someone that a van had broken through and to be on the lookout fot it. I turned around in the yard waste drive and took 19 and 3 to get to Cannon City. I thought the driver was very inconsiderate of what the crew was doing. Too bad soemthing like that had to happen here in Northfield.
