My football interview with Jeff Fisher, the guy who got The Big Ticket started 8/6/2014
Jeff Fisher was always a good guy during his days at Channel 69 and that hasn't changed since he moved to the Los Angeles area.I always liked Jeff and Tom Leyden and admired how they worked hard to carve a niche our community. Even though both moved on elsewhere, they still maintain many local connections and keep tabs on what's happening back here.Media people in general, and TV people in particular, can be a bit standoffish. Not these two.Fisher always had a great passion for high school footb...

Solid NFL debut by Parkland graduate Williams caps a good weekend for locals in Canton 8/4/2014
As I covered all of the festivities surrounding Andre Reed's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend in Canton, I thought about the fact that this was something that's unlikely to ever happen again -- a local guy making it to Canton.At least it won't happen during my Morning Call career, and maybe not even while I am around, period.But after what I saw tonight, you know what, I changed my mind. It could happen again one day.Who knows? It might even happen to the guy who made hi...
