GOOD NEWS FOLLOW UP
We clearly hit a strong nerve and need for many of you as we launched our Good News For A Change project.
Last night, we opened this new project in front of Anheuser-Busch In-Bev where we have seen friends and neighbors lose jobs in a transition that is still developing. New 4 Reporter Ray Preston said there are some who believe that In-Bev might still consider St. Louis for its world headquarters.
Our first "Good News" story featured Scott Hampshire who despite working 8 hours a day at his casino job decides to start a new business and finds it is hard, hard work ... but is proving successful and helping him provide for his family. Scott and his partner, Kurt Thompson, are even considering opening a second location for their bowling supply shop.
I asked for those watching to send us ideas about individuals, groups, organizations, businesses that are struggling, but still making things happen in this economy.
Several ideas have already hit my email (Larry@kmov.com) and I open to see more.
In my job we have to continue reporting the bad economic news, but with your help and ideas ... we can we also highlight the good news stories.
