Since I believe my notes are typo-free (except for punctuation...), here's what I teased on TV a short time ago:
good morning -- glad it's hump day, but you know, during holiday weeks like this, hump day just means you're running out of time to get the work done -- among the chores on our list is to make sure we have all the memorial day observances in the paper -- we'll make a downpayment on that today -- we have a few dozen events listed in today's paper and we'll have an updated, hopefully complete list in on saturday
the jobless rate in olmsted county dropped to 4.3 percent in april, the lowest in more than three years -- goodhue, mower and winona counties also reported their lowest levels in more than three years -- the overall rate in the region is 4.8 percent, compared with 5.2 percent
20 years after joining the rochester police force, sgt. eli umpierre is about to achieve another milestone -- she'll become the department's first female lieutenant -- she's promoted on may 31, one of nine on the force, and it's the third highest rank in the dept. -- congratulations to her
and on the front page, we'll have a remembrance of a guy a lot of you may have seen over the years, especially if you travel on center street -- he'd sit in a folding chair in front of his house at 11th avenue northeast and center and just have a pleasant wave for passersby -- he was know to friends at johnny, the can man -- johnny passed away last week, we'll tell you his story today.
