Raw court video

Alfredo Reyes Reyes appeared briefly in court today for a formal indictment in connection with the 31-year-old murder of two teenage Stockton girls. The former fugitive had been hiding out in Mexico. As it turned out, the court waived a reading of the indictment, so the raw video is mostly procedural and doesn’t give much [...]

She is one of the Tougaloo Nine, a group of students who staged a sit-in at a whites-only library in Jackson, Miss., in 1961. Hollis has a very vivid memory and weaves wonderful tales of life in the Mississippi [...]

There can be only one

Tara’s already blogged a bit about our experience shooting video out at Lincoln High as football season gets underway. As she mentioned, it was my first time doing football video.

The art of not falling in

This past weekend, Scott Linesburgh wrote a story about making the most of the Delta waterways, using a trip out on Jim Painter’s BottomLine as the launching point for the story.

Near the end of my trip to the fairgrounds (documented in video by Web Content Producer Katie Combs), I ended up over near the animals [...]

Merry Cherpumple!

In November, Record copy editor Genette Brookshire and me embarked on a never-before-done fete for the newspaper. We baked and built a Cherpumple. The monster pie-cake, invented by Los Angeles humorist Charles Phoenix, was a crazy venture that took us nearly 10 hours when all was said and done. (To be fair, Genette did most [...]
