Today's word on journalism

Friday, November 10, 2006

Q&A with Ed Bradley:

Q: What single issue should be covered more at CBS News?
A: Foreign news.

Q: Have you ever been assigned a story you objected to? How did you deal with it?
A: When I first started in New York at WCBS radio, the assignment editor automatically assigned any story that had a minority in it to me. I objected to being typecast and told him if I didn't get a variety of stories -- as other reporters did -- then I would take it up with the news director.

Q: If you were not in news, what would you be doing?
A: If I had the talent, I'd play bass guitar and sing in a kicking band.

Hyde Park may get 4-way stop at 2nd South and 7th East

By Natalie Cook

October 20, 2006 | HYDE PARK -- Citizens' requests for a 4-way stop at the entrance to Shadow Bluff Estates may get approval in the near future, making streets a little safer.

The intersection of 200 South and 700 East is currently a 2-way stop, but at last week's City Council meeting, North Park Police Chief Hawkes proposed that it be made into a 4-way stop.

Hawkes said most people stop there anyway, or at least slow down because visibility is limited. The pasture to the southwest elevates so motorists have a short range of vision when they approach the stop.

"We have had several near-misses there and citizens have requested it be made in to a 4-way," Hawkes said, "which would reduce confusion."

So far, little opposition has been shown to the change, but it has not yet been approved by the council. Mayor Kooyman will likely pass the issue on to the new safety council he is in the process of creating.

If the new stop signs receive approval, North Park police will keep the signs covered to let people adjust to them for two or three weeks before they are unveiled and enforced.
