ESPN Interviews Forks’ Student Athletes

June 23rd, 2010 by contributor

espnWhat do Forks Spartans student athletes want rival players and Twilight fans to know? They are Spartans not vampires or werewolves. ESPN’s Jim Caple recently visited FHS and interviewed a handful of students and athletic director Kevin Rupprecht. While students are not so happy with their new nicknames, Twilight fans have had a positive effect on the amount of money in the athletic department’s budget, through their purchase of Spartan Gear. Thanks to the extra funds there have been no cut backs. Go Spartans!

Media Frenzy Hits the West End

May 28th, 2010 by contributor

rialtoMedia Frenzy- In the last few weeks Forks and surrounding communities have been inundated by media:

KING 5 News Seattle, North Seattle Herald Outlook Newspaper, USA Today Newspaper and Stern Magazine from Germany.

Stern Magazine is the largest magazine in Germany and their story will focus just on the town of Forks. USA Today will be having their article appear a week before the release of the next movie, Twilight Saga: Eclipse. King 5 was here to do a follow-up report based on the “Twilight in Forks” video where some of us residents and visitors were interviewed about the town. So, smile! You may be on camera.

Twilight Firewood

We’ve held off on commenting about the local Twilight Firewood stand for quite a while now, but we just can’t resist. We think it’s hilarious! It kind of takes things to a whole new level. And the sharp-looking stand is certainly an attention getter. Although the small print says to burn the “LaPush bundles” to “keep the evil vampires away,” we suspect simply throwing pieces of firewood at them would be just as effective. Stock up now!

Reality?

zigs-tryouts-3-girlsLooks like just about everyone in Forks showed up for the casting call for the planned Forks reality TV show. (We’re up in Canada, so we missed all of the action!) Check out the coverage at the Forks Forum site and in today’s Peninsula Daily News. We’re assuming they’re not talking about the “real” Forks that we know, so we’re curious what, exactly, is planned. Anyone have suggestions for Zig Gauthier, the Santa Monica, California, based television producer behind the project?

MIKE & MARCIA TWILIGHT ACTION FIGURES

This is probably the most incredible thing we’ve ever seen. Seriously!! Yes, it’s our own Marcia Bingham, Chamber Director, and Mike Gurling, Chamber Visitor Center Manager, depicted as action figures. Right there next to the Alice Cullen action figure! It’s almost too much . . . .
