We've reported before that there have been rumors floating around saying "The Vampire Diaries" might take it's filming elsewhere.

We have discussed in the past why this is (financially) a bad thing for our city.

We have also addressed the people who grumble about the slight inconvenience the filming causes. If you missed that editorial, here's a summary: you'll get over it.
Like the above column, this isn't directed towards the majority of our readers. Our community poll, which we analyzed in Sunday's edition of the paper, stated that 76 percent of our readers think the tourism industry, which includes filming, increases the quality of life in Newton County.

Next time you hear people grumbling, just remember that while the complainers are the vocal minority, they could screw this up for everyone.
