Big Stories Covered: I don't know if I've covered many "big" stories, I just hope my stories can impact people, and if I can affect one viewer, then I think I've done my job. Two of my most memorable stories - when Hurricane Katrina came through, all of the Rapides Parish Bus Drivers drove down to New Orleans to help bring people to safety. Imagine 100 drivers, hugging, crying, and ready to go-it was my official breakdown moment. We also had a prisoner escape from the State Penitentiary in Pollack ... this was his 3rd escape from a prison, a local officer stopped him and then let him go. The prisoner is still missing to this day.
