MADD is angry

Mothers Against Drunk Driving confronted a Lake Lotawana city alderman at a meeting last night about his comments at a previous meeting. He said he wanted police to lay off the drunk driving patrols near bars in the city.

I will add that I have been working in this business in one capacity or another for about 11 years and this is the first time a public official tried to tell me I can't have my camera at a public meeting. I told him he could call the police if he wanted to, but I wasn't going to leave.

Thanks to John at Bottom Line Communications for the mention about my award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. It was a really nice write up, which you can read here.

Awards are nice

So I guess I've won a "major award" as they would say in "A Christmas Story." MADD has announced that I won their Missouri media award for 2008. I'm the sole winner from all the print, radio, and TV media in the state, so it's a very nice honor, and I'm pleased they thought of me.

This is one if the stories where I worked with MADD recently. The video link is on that page or you can click here for a direct link to the video.

Sound the alarm

My neighbor got to be on TV today, after she tipped me off to some pushy sales people in our neighborhood.

Turns out these sales people have been hitting the streets all over the metro, and it's concerning to the KC Crime Prevention Assoc.

Queen Bee

Today I talked to the 12 year-old who is a much better speller than I am. We joked at work that we should hire her to check all of our scripts.

I bet she rocks at Scrabble too.
