Where to even begin today. So much to share with you! I guess I'll start with some newly-discovered treasures. Check out these pictures of some of the veteran members of the 14 News team!
I think our promotions department is doing some fall cleaning. These gems were sitting in a box back by the studio.
Even though they are in black and white, they aren't really THAT old. I had to put Ann in the middle of David and Mike. The rose between two thorns, right?? I kid, I kid. David and Mike are two of the sweetest, classiest and most well-meaning men that exist. It's a pleasure to work with them, and I'm very lucky to have David as a next-door neighbor in the newsroom.
He, on the other hand, is not as lucky to sit next to me. That's because I tend to have a bit of a messy work area. We gather a lot of things over the course of a few days. Papers, flyers, pumpkins, reflective vests, 3.5 Q water jugs. Anyway… I think I could use a little fall cleaning myself. I'll get right on that:)
Today I did a lot of work from the newsroom. I did an update on the apparent theft from a locker room in Sullivan while the South Spencer football team was there last Friday. Since Sullivan is a pretty good distance (Terre Haute area), I got most of the story over the phone. I did take a shorter road trip this afternoon though, to Boonville.
I was there for a story about early voting, and who do I see when I walk in—Harold Gunn! Several months ago, Harold, a regular around the Warrick County Judicial Center, had a heart attack there. He's now doing sooo much better! He used to come visit the folks there about every day. Now, he's able to check in about once a month or so! Yay progress!
Harold is an absolute favorite around there, and in and around Boonville—he is VERY well-known! Harold even has his own honorary "Chief" badge from, I believe, the Police Department. I did a story when he wasn't doing so well all those months ago, so it was nice to meet the legend in person today!!
Speaking of legends… last night I met ANOTHER one. And in this case, it was a legend known around the WORLD: Calvin Klein! Araceli Thiele and I went to his presentation at the Victory Theatre, and really enjoyed it.
He had a couple of pretty good stories, including one about when he was first getting started. He didn't want to risk wrinkling any of his garments in a cab, so he rolled them on the rack quite a few blocks to get them where they needed to be. That, in and of itself, must have been quite a pain in New York. Then he says a wheel broke off while he was going. See, even really, REALLY famous (& rich) people weren't always so put together!! :)
At the end of the presentation, Dr. Kazee, the President of the University of Evansville (who coordinated the event) gave Calvin a gift. He said it was UE underwear! I thought that was a great idea (not to mention HILARIOUS) given Calvin Klein's success in that industry. A UE rep later told me that was just a joke (boo).
Anyway, when things were all said and done, Araceli and I were hoping to get a picture with Calvin. (Yep, you meet someone famous for 2 minutes and you think you can start calling them by their first name). We ended up not only taking some photos, but also chatting with him a little bit. He was very nice to us!
I had to joke with them though about my shoes—remember these brown tennis shoes I wear almost every day! Who meets CALVIN KLEIN wearing brown gym shoes?!? Uggh, me. Embarrassing! He was very kind about it, though, and didn't seem to judge :)
Before we went to meet him Araceli and I were acting all star-struck. We (of course) had to make a restroom pit stop to check our hair and make-up! It was such a fun night, and I was glad to have spent it with a great co-worker!
Finally—one last thing. Our Marketing/Promotions department just finished a cool PSA about the success of Operation: Hot Mess. Yours truly has a little role in it. Here's a link if you're interested! http://vimeo.com/52163911
