Crew to film at courthouse

“Good Morning America” cameras and crew will be at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore today to help wrap up the county’s sesquicentennial anniversary celebration.

The crew will be taping for the “Faces” segment of the show, which is a frequent interlude between commercials, said Lori Timberlake, of the First National Bank of DeKalb.

She said the segment includes a main spokesman in the featured community who gives a short speech on the significance of their area.

Any county resident is invited to congregate on the courthouse lawn to be part of the crowd for the segment, which will be taped at 11:45 a.m. and last about 15 seconds, she said.

Timberlake said after the spokesman’s speech, the camera pans out over a large crowd from the community, who then shout in unison, “Good Morning America!”

DeKalb County Clerk Terry Desmond, who also is chairman of the sesquicentennial committee, will serve as the spokesman for the segment, Timberlake said. He will tell “Good Morning America” about DeKalb’s anniversary and celebration, she said.
