4A Wednesday, March 17, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Johnsville gels as site of Smucker's commercial Diana Jorgenson Portola Editor When the film crew of The Cartel, based in Hollywood, came to film a commercial in Plumas County, they brought snowmaking equipment. But they didn't need it. Not in Johnsville. The crew was making a Christmas commercial for Smucker's jams and jellies : and was in Johnsville filming March 9 and 10, with a small- er crew prepping the site on Monday. They were gifted with a couple of inches of bright new snow on top of the drifts al- ready piled high in Johnsville just the day before filming and received a second dusting the night before the second day of filming. The commercial portrays Tim and Richard Smucker, now in their 90s, as young- sters in Ohio in the 1950s and Johnsville provided just the ambiance of that earlier decade. Hunter Knoeche, from Dal- las, Texas, played the elder Smucker while Nolan Eggle- ston, Milwaukee, portrayed the younger. The boys are ap- parently look-alikes of the Smucker brothers in their youths and this is the third year that they have portrayed them in commercials. Hunter's mother said that the period clothing worn by the boys actually belonged to the Smucker brothers. This particular commercial is due to come out next Christ- mas, and it only took a couple of wreaths to turn snowy Johnsville into Christmas. The rest of the scenery was al- ready Christmas card pretty In the commercial, the boys are delivering jams and jelly from the family business to people in the neighborhood so several Johnsville residences are featured, including Dean- na Fregulia's home, the old hotel, the Daun residence and the Agnew house. The parking lots at Plumas- Eureka State Park and below were full of trucks and trans- port vehicles that brought about 60 crewmembers into the area, including food ser- vice and snowmaking experts. For many of these south- ern California residents, Plumas County and its rural atmosphere and scenic mountains was new terrain.
