Lincoln City sunset

Beautiful weather at the coast

48 and sunny in Lincoln City. I'm with Bob Heye doing an Officer Dodds shooting anniversary.

Ducks not Bucs

Pics of Chip Kelly from my iPhone archives. A huge sigh of relief from Oregonians who credit Chip with much of the Ducks success.

Newsgathering Dangers

While getting shots of some folks making a snowman, this Honda came sliding toward me on Madrona. I was able to dodge the out of control car but my temporary news Explorer got hit on the bumper. This was Tues morning.

Here's some pics from behind the scenes working at the coast

That's truck op Steve and Thom Jensen working while taking a break. These were taken Tues and Wed.

Flooding on Croisan Creek

For years I drove by this house in S Salem wondering what will happen when Croisan Creek overflowed. When I took these pictures on Thursday, the homeowner was standing on dry land in his garage.

Another Turner OR flooding pic

It was a relief to see that no one was hurt after the waters rose quickly.

Thom Jensen

Live from Rockaway Beach. This is how I've been able to keep my lens dry. I'm shooting from inside the hotel room while Thom braves the weather.

Rose Bowl Crew

If you watched KATU's coverage of the 2012 Rose Bowl game, here is a picture of the crew that was in Pasadena. Covering these events are fun but, require working very hard under stressful, unfamiliar situations and long hours. We had great support from the folks coordinating our efforts at the station in Portland. This is a situation where a lot of things can go wrong, causing a meltdown on air. Hopefully, the live shots from the Rose Bowl were informative, insightful and entertaining to watch. I'm back home now, ready to jump into the day to day news routine.From let to right, Katy Brown, Me, John Michael Farley, Justin Gurrad, Craig Birnbach.
