    This was another good episode of No Filter.. Well done gentlemen…. Kudos.!

  • Paula January 4, 2015 at 8:54 am

    what channel is this on?

    • Joyce Kuzmanic Joyce Kuzmanic January 4, 2015 at 9:38 am

      Hi Paula, this is not a televised show yet. Just click on the arrow in the center of the video at the top of the story and the show will play for you. 🙂
      Let me know if you have any difficulty and I’ll be glad to help,

    That was fun. Although you guys are handsome, this episode especially would have benefitted from fewer shots of you and more of the sights you were discussing.

    • Truerebel January 4, 2015 at 11:15 am

      I agree Mandy it seems they are pretty into themselves

  • Truerebel January 4, 2015 at 9:12 am

    I know we all try to hold on to our youth but it seems Paul Ford has forgot his age. Pointy shoes and rockstar hair.. Maybe he wants to be in an 80’s reunion band

    • RidRider January 4, 2015 at 11:18 am

      Perhaps your a but jealous…taking time to focus on Paul after a great segment on a great piece of our local history. Quit pointing out the moat and look inwards to thine own eye.

      • Truerebel January 4, 2015 at 4:21 pm

        Jealous of being a washed up disciple of Jeremy Johnson? Nah I’m good but thanks though 🙂

        • RidRider January 5, 2015 at 7:09 am

          Dude…say what you want but your words speak LOUD and CLEAR…you are obsessed with tearing Paul down. I’d try and explain it in more detail, but I doubt your smart enough to understand psychology and the way the mind works. Keep telling yourself that though…can’t wait to see what your next comment will say negatively about Paul. I doubt he even knows who you are lol…actually perhaps you have known him…the stinging bite to your words screams of something more. Man…the success Paul has seen over the years and the pretty women he attracts must be a constant gut punch. I can’t imagine how that must feel…I’m feel bad for you. Here’s to hoping you have a friend and a life to focus on moving forward.

          • Chris January 5, 2015 at 3:36 pm

            “understand psychology”??
            Are you serious? At my college, the dumb jocks and other academic failures were the only psychology majors. Of course, anyone who begins their post with “Dude” isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed anyway.

          • Truerebel January 7, 2015 at 9:22 pm

            Hahahaha. Amazing.. no need to validate a response to your defense of somone that is not worth defending.. You must be JJ or one of his minions.

          • Dr. Meyers January 10, 2015 at 10:28 am

            Ridrider you must be a little hot dog man that comes to defend Paul at any chance. Because someone mocks somone does that constitute jealousy? No. Climb down your theoretical pulpit and start your own “Paul Ford” groupie site. Do you even know the manner of the man you are defending? You ridrider are a pseudo neutral puppet. Majority of this town including women knows Paul because of his reputation, and it’s not good

    • ladybugavenger January 4, 2015 at 2:27 pm

      The 80’s were Awesome!

    • Youtawbob January 4, 2015 at 4:47 pm

      It seems TRUEREBEL has a serious case of jealousy going on there

    • koolaid January 4, 2015 at 7:39 pm

      Let’s see them video themselves busting some dance moves (as a couple) at the next city council meeting.

  • S Steed January 4, 2015 at 11:14 am

    I love the idea of your show. Its awesome the way you have promoted local businesses and interesting sites in southern Utah. Your lines are painfully scripted and when your doing it for the money it gets pretty bad. I know you have to produce the show but the one with the scooters at the golf course was awful. Please don’t ever do that again. The ones when you are doing the stuff you enjoy are the best. You’ve done some great shows so keep up the good work.

  • NewGuy January 4, 2015 at 11:16 am

    An other good, interesting piece gentlemen.
    (Little confused on your Virgin River name explanation. Doesn’t the Santa Clara river make it with Miss Virgin just prior to the Bloomington bedroom area?)

  • Graftonwascool January 4, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Fun tidbit: one of the founders of Grafton named his tenth? child Marvelous Flood Tenney named because he was born during the flood. 🙂

  • MzAnnie January 4, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Loved watching this! I lived in St. George for 7+ years and moved, but still have family in the area. I need to peruse the other episodes as I still consider this area “home”!

  • Adele January 4, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    I love the idea behind this NO FILTER! More info about our area and the history behind it. Good job. Hopefully we will see more of this on St. George News!

  • Ray Urbaniak January 4, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    What about the Santa Clara river that merges into to the Virgin?

    • NewGuy January 4, 2015 at 10:57 pm

      Ray, that sounds like a high point in a sexy love novel chapter. ‘And on they went hand in hand, to raise their tadpole family in the upper Lake Mead plateau’. Times were rough in those days. The BLM was (and continues to be) a threat to their free flow.

  • IN THE GAME January 4, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    That Paul Ford is a handsome ….
    Ed. ellipsis.

  • Mary January 4, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    My grandfather was born in Grafton. Nice to see some of the old buildings are still there.

  • Robert Brimhall January 4, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    Hey that’s my massie Harris tractor your setting on!

  • Dennis Levine January 5, 2015 at 12:38 am

    I just watched all the no filters. You guys are doing a great job. You should advertise future shows on banners on the site so we know whats coming up. Plus I think it would be helpful to have a write up on the subject matter, like an article that goes along with the video. True Rebel, you should take Paul Ford to lunch, you might find he’s a decent guy, and from what I hear, he has a 20 pounds of gold and a couple hundred grand buried out past Gunlock somewhere. Sometimes the guys we think we hate end up being the ones that teach us the biggest lessons in life.

  • Mary Lynn January 5, 2015 at 12:46 am

    Just wondering if Paul is single? I wonder if he’s that cute in person? Does anyone know how old he is?

  • Debbie January 5, 2015 at 9:28 am

    Well now that was seriously cool. I’ve never been to Grafton before. Thanks for that piece of history.

  • Nestdesigner January 5, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Actually, the Santa Clara River and Fort Pierce Wash feed into the Virgin River……..so I don’t think that’s the reason it’s called the Virgin River. I would like to know though!

  • Paul Ford January 5, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    For the record, my shoes are less pointy these days. However, I did see a pair of Mark Nason’s on Pinterest that made me salivate just a little. My hair is still a bit spiky (with a touch of gray.) And yes, I miss the ’80s. If I am ever reincarnated I hope to come back as Bono, Pony Boy, or Ricky Schroder. TRUEREB … I love your comments. Nothing makes me smile more than a witty foe. I’ve heard it said, “there is opposition in all things.” Happy New Year to each and all of you, friend and foe alike. May this be the best year of your life! If any of you have any good ideas for a “No Filter Show” let us know.

  • IN THE GAME January 5, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Joyce Kuzmanic, Editor in Chief. So it’s ok to use that word in your video, but not in a printed comment? Humm, nice double standard. In case you have forgotten the word, it’s …
    Ed. ellipsis. I suppose, In The Game, if I was inclined to eliminate a word once, I will do it again and have just done so. I’ve yet to master a single standard, try as I might. I will keep doing my best – giving liberty in comments while preserving decency that broad readership can tolerate. I have no doubt that all my efforts, redoubled, will fail to appease everyone. Now, I’m going to have to review our video … Joyce, EIC

  • The Rest Of The Story January 7, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    Funny he should mention “Eagle Scout Project”. This video was so amateurish, I thought it was also an Eagle Scout Project. These guys aren’t ready for prime time. They aren’t even ready for 3 am.

    • Dr. Meyers January 10, 2015 at 10:21 am

      well said. I couldn’t agree more, bogus material. I would expect better performances from middle schoolers.
