What Happened when "The Twilight Zone" Came to Town

Matthias runs the show today. Matthias is one of the HUB Online Networks new hires and for training purposes we have given him a chance to run the show. Gareth is running the technical equipment.

This episode starts with an interview from Mayor Barbara Roden. Barbara is in the studio today to talk about the filming of an episode of the new series "The Twilight Zone." The episode was filmed in January and February of 2020 before all of the COVID-19 madness. The production had many local hires, using the citizens of Ashcroft as extra's, production assistants and caterers. The production worked closely with the village to secure filming locations, most notably the building of a faux church right across the street from the Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal Office where Barbara works. Since Mayor Barbara has been a huge Twilight Zone fan since the Roger Sterling era, she had several insights on the process and story telling aspects of this episode, and was privy to some behind the scenes secrets, which she had to sign an non disclosure agreement for, but now that the episode has aired she is free to talk about it. The Ashcroft HUB was approached by the Thompson Nicola Film Commission to have a series of screenings of the episode for all of the village citizens to watch if they were so inclined. The tickets were free, and all viewings had a decent turn out. To check this out for yourself you can watch the episode on the CBS go app under the Twilight Zone, season two episode eight "A Small Town."

Matthias then moves onto a video show casing this months fundraiser for the Ashcroft HUB involve tea sales, you can get hot chocolate as well!

Matthias also plays a video created by the HUB Online Network about a local artists' art gallery in Ashcroft. The artist is Royden Josephson, who is a retired art teacher as well. The gallery showcases several different pieces that can be purchased, and half of all of the proceeds go to the local food bank. This gallery will be available to view until the end of August and is located at the side walk gallery in Ashcroft across from Safety Mart.

Then, the usual host Gareth Smart chimes in with a little more civic style news, as he talks about the ongoing flooding that has been taking place in Cache Creek. The Cache Creek Village has released a statement that talks about the hope that the water would have stopped but it just keeps on coming. Don't forget for safety reasons stay ten feet away from the river and creek banks. Bank erosion has been extreme this year.
