It’s Trisha – Pat’s running off on assignment.
Jeriann and Jon were live at the Western Gateway Park all morning. Jeriann wore SHORTS even though she knew it would be a little on the chilly side. Here’s a link to the Arts Festival Website for schedules, maps, and info. It’s FREE – and the forecast is awesome.
Yesterday a wild situation unfolded at the Arts Festival site, involving a crash, a police chase, a shooting, and a car-jacking. I’ll let Pat expand if he has time since he was anchoring the noon newscast yesterday when all this broke.
Maybe it’s the mother in me that always makes me wonder when I hear stories like this – what went wrong in that person’s life that led them to this moment? In this case police say drugs were involved. It makes me sad to see someone’s life apparently slipped so far out of control that they’d do something this extreme.
LONDON BOMBING STOPPED
A potential car-bombing in London was prevented this morning -bomb was defused and the area cordoned off. Hard to imagine how things would have gone if authorities did not take care of this situation in advance. This was all developing overnight and we’re sure to know many more details by tonight’s newscasts.
by noon today police in London found two more suspicious cars that might be filled with the same thing. Fleet street was closed for a while this morning…now it’s re-opened.
A few tech-lovers lined up overnight at Jordan Creek to wait for the I Phone – which goes on sale at 6 tonight.
These look pretty cool, but way out of my price range ($499 for the cheapest model, not including the cost of getting the AT&T service)
Apple IPhone info here.
PROM PICTURES, ANYONE?
This morning after showing video of a kid who made prom outfits out of duct tape, Pat and I got talking about our prom attire. Which led me to pose this challenge to you blog-readers – who’s brave enough to share their prom photos with the world???
Please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will post them here throughout the day! Once I get home I’ll try to get one of my old prom pics loaded in. Funny stuff.
(hint – double check the spelling of SHEPHERD or the email will get lost in cyberspace. I can’t tell you how often this happens. There’s an “H” in the middle – shep herd as in “herder of sheep,” not shepard, shepperd, etc.)
“Camp Grandma” is officially coming to an end today. My little ones are coming home – can’t wait to see these faces again in person!
