This Week

Regular viewers of Newswatch 16 Saturday Night at 7 know I've become the voice of "This Week."  It's written by one of our talented hybrids, Dave Scarnato.  He's a photographer, a writer, and even a producer when we need the help.  He writes the script late Friday night.  I record it early Saturday morning, before my own broadcast.  An editor puts it together in the afternoon.  Choosing me as "the voice" was not an extensive process.  I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, and there are occasions when others do the honors.

Anyway, what a week it's been!

Non stop rain.  Clinton can't put away Sanders.  Trump did put away Kasich and Cruz.  A police chief admitted drugs are out of control in his area.  There's a fierce debate over turning an old department store into a county government office building.  Aeropostale bankrupt.  Animal abuse.  Rising speed limits.  A bigger Big Mac.  The secret life of Prince apparently involved a lot of drugs.  Paterno.  Sandusky.  Penn State.  Sex abuse.

Never a dull moment.
