As a junior reporter for a local news station I have found myself in some pretty sketchy situations.
Recently there have been several city board meetings over the heated fights regarding rezoning.
They neighborhood that is being considered is run down plus the city wants to take possession of any properties that are abandoned or behind in taxes for more than two years. Unfortunately, this includes properties that are still occupied by families that simply can’t afford the taxes due to living below the poverty level. Many other residents are fighting to supply them a opportunity to make superb on the debts through low cost payments instead of losing their homes. At any rate, these meetings can be long plus loud, not to mention the hall where they are being held has a less than satisfactory Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C plan plus it becomes sizzling plus stuffy when filled with so several people. The press is all huddled into one corner of the room plus both of us kneel there sweaty plus uncomfortable trying to get our scoop on the story. Of course there are deadlines that need to be met plus both of us all want to get the story on the next airing of the local news. Getting interviews with people plus officials takes time plus I need to try plus keep our cool while waiting. No one wants to talk to a reporter that is resting there looking all sweaty while I was in the interview. My task can be hard at times plus I know that one afternoon I will be the one behind the news desk instead of the one tracking down the latest headline grabbing story.
