"The whole concept of trying to sell the Baker and now we're turning around and putting all the focus on it being haunted and all that. I just don't think that's the direction that we need our city to head in. I can't see how that's going to be positive exposure. Of course, that's my opinion. I just hate to see us go that direction. I don't know that we're that desperate that we have to try and promote ourselves as being haunted."
For those who look forward to "Daylight's End" coming to Mineral Wells, Howerton said he believes the public could be able to watch the large action sequence being filmed and possibly even be cast as extras.
"Typically, it's my understanding, that is possible," he said. "We've had some other film production crews come in to Mineral Wells over the past several years and that's exactly what they did. You could come stand on the sidelines and watch the filming and there were some locals who were actually extras in the movie."
After multiple attempts to contact Page, one of the film's producers, the Index could not attain information confirming this or concerning how to become an extra.
