Good Afternoon!
It’s going to be a jam packed newscast tonight…just a preview

The President left this morning but not before sitting down for a cup of coffee at Java Joe’s. That wasn’t on the public schedule. Hard to sneak around when you’ve got a Secret Service Detail. Hopefully we can show you more of that and the Prez’s departure on our evening newscasts.

If you missed the re-introduction of Fred Hoiberg, you have to see it on WHOTV.COM. The thing I kept thinking? Only in Iowa. I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting The Mayor, but everyone who has worked with him in the past says he is a class act, super competitive and that he LOVES Ames and Iowa State. I can’t imagine anyone walking away from that news conference thinking any of that was untrue. I will be among the people rooting for Hoiberg and the Cyclones when they aren’t playing my Missouri Tigers. I like seeing one of the Good Guys win.

If you’ve missed the story unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico…it’s bad. They can’t cap that Oil Well where the rig exploded and burned. That means about 43,000 gallons of crude is leaking into the Gulf a day. Shrimping, Clamming and Vacationing are all in real danger this summer on the Gulf Coast. That’s millions of dollars an Hundreds if not thousands of jobs. Just what the Doctor ordered in a bad economy.

We hear there could be some more details by this evening about the murder of a Drake Student overnight Monday into Tuesday. Look for that tonight.

Hope you have a good day.
