DI­ARIES

The Covington News - - Front page -

Bach­tel al­ready has her web­site mys­tic­fall­s­tour. com up and run­ning, but she said she is still wait­ing for the state to process the paper work for her limited li­a­bil­ity cor­po­ra­tion. She hopes to have Mys­ti­cal Falls Tour LLC up and run­ning by July 1.

Since she’s had her web­site up, she’s al­ready re­ceived calls from fans in Florida and Vir­ginia and even an e-mail in the Philip­pines.

She has four types of tours, in­clud­ing a tour for “Team Da­mon” fans and a “Jeremy’s Lost Loves” tour, rang­ing from the $12 per per­son group rate for the small­est tour to the $55 per per­son sin­gle rate for the long­est tour. In ad­di­tion to the tours, Bach­tel will give T-shirts for peo­ple who love the Da­mon or Stephan char­ac­ters. She was care­ful to avoid any copy­right in­fringe­ment, and the shirts will in­clude Cov­ing­ton’s his­tor­i­cal nick­name, “Hollywood of the South.” For more in­for­ma­tion, call Bach­tel at (678) 588-5956.

In other Vam­pire Di­aries news, Clara Deemer, tourism di­rec­tor for the Cov­ing­ton-Newton County Cham­ber of Com­merce, said the cham­ber is con­sid­er­ing cre­at­ing self- guided brochures for the Vam­pire Di­aries but have not made any fi­nal de­ci­sions. The cham­ber of­fers self-guided tour brochures for the “In the Heat of the Night” and “The Dukes of Haz­zard.” Deemer said the Vam­pire Di­aries is still fairly new, so de­mand for a tour is only slowly be­gin­ning to in­crease.

In re­lated en­ter­tain­ment news, Deemer said she was head­ing to a Ge­or­gia Mu­nic­i­pal As­so­ci­a­tion movie panel, where she would help other com­mu­ni­ties learn how to be cam­era ready, like Cov­ing­ton. The city of Cov­ing­ton it­self has been work­ing to re­vise its film­ing poli­cies bet­ter to ac­com­mo­date film­mak­ers, while also giv­ing the Ge­or­gia Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion enough warn­ing when film­ing takes place on the square and Ga. High­way 36 needs to be closed down.

In the past month, “Wanderlust,” star­ing Jen­nifer Anis­ton and Paul Rudd, and “Foot­loose 2,” have both looked at film­ing in Newton County, but chose other lo­ca­tions, Deemer said.
