While dealing with a cancer diagnosis, FORREST CARR used his humor to blog about the pain, progress and daily grind of the disease, bringing the reader from laughter to tears with the turn of a phrase. He was a News Director who became an author. He loved sharing his opinions, outlooks, and ideas. Sadly, Forrest left us today, cancer taking yet another talent. Those who read his work or worked with him have all said he will be greatly missed.
SHAD SELBY, who has done TV promo work in Sacramento, has a new little boy so fresh, he still has that adorable little blue hat on. The yet-to-be-named bundle of joy had a rough entry, but after the medicos checked him out in all possible ways, while mom and dad were on pins and needles, the Good To Go words were uttered and, as if on cue from an angel, outside the NICU a rainbow appeared. Well Dunne! Selby fam…all our good thoughts are coming to you.

Tallahassee is Florida’s capital, which you all know. Located in the Panhandle of the pistol-shaped state, Tallahassee is also home to Florida State U, giving the city the same kind of mix of students and politicians that Austin, Texas boasts. Joining in the frey is the new creative services utility man, EVAN ZIEFELMANN, who’s been hard at work for the last three months at the ABC affiliate, KTXL, owned by Calkins. Evan has done a few very exciting things along the way to Tallahassee, like be a reporter and Assignment Editor for The Columbus Packet newspaper in Columbus, Mississippi. He’s also worked at Columbus’ WCBI, the CBS affil doing a range of duties like IT and Audio. He’s a can-do guy and we’re glad to give him a big Well Dunne!
Also in Tallahassee, hard working ELLIOT TOOLE has retired after 46 years on the job, most recently handling promotions and creative services. Wow…46 years. That’s older than the average age of some of the readers. What a sweet man. May we all find a spot that makes us happy for so long. Well Dunne! Elliot.
Know what a mitzvah is? It’s a Jewish commandment, and in this case, it’s a good deed done for someone. Think about doing a mitzvah that you will enjoy on several levels, like spiritual and intellectual, if that’s how one would classify reading. Former News Director FORREST CARR is a prolific writer. He calls his blog the Bashful Bloviator. Well, he has a new book and you should think about buying it. For print or Kindle, it’s called The Dark.
