Road Trip!! - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Road Trip!!

Doing things a little differently tonight. I'm emailing this entry to our web department from my phone, so hopefully it works! Been an unusual day! I just got back about an hour ago from a little road trip to St. Louis.

Here's how I ended up there...

A couple of weeks ago I started coordinating a story about a junior at Boonville HS who recently won a state award, the Indiana Spirit of Sport Award. Noah James is a double lung transplant recipient, and just months after the operation he was back in the pool swimming on Boonville's team.  Pretty awesome!

Well tomorrow night at the Boonville basketball game, Noah will be recognized for his great accomplishment. It's also Organ Donation Awareness night.

We were all scheduled to film Noah at swim practice yesterday, then found out he came down with RSV and is receiving treatment at St. Louis Children's Hospital.  He will have to miss the big event tomorrow as he won't be able to come home until the weekend.

We were hoping to kind of exchange some video with our NBC affiliate station in STL, but it wasn't working out so I got the green light to go myself.  Glad I did.  Oftentimes I prefer just doing it myself...that way I know what I'm working with!!

So, I made it to St. Louie in about 2 hours, 40 minutes.  Spent not even 2 hours there and headed home.  Made it back in time to watch the final 4-plus minutes of the Lady Aces' game at the Ford Center.  Not a good outcome.  Up big and gave it away, boo!

Now I'm just waiting on my Valentine, who, as a coach, will likely not be in the most romantic of moods after that loss...

Ah well.  I'm not too too big on Valentine's Day, anyway.  Do hope it treated you well, though!

That's all she wrote for tonight. :)

Until next time,
