I had my first potentially exciting assignment today! There was a crackle on the scanner that’s in the newsroom, not too far from my desk. There were reports of a fire on the the southern side of town, and my editor said, “You aren’t doing anything, are you Eric?” I grabbed a camera and notebook and hustled out to the car and got out into the street. I was headed down the road, about halfway around the block from the newspaper office, and my cell phone was ringing. It was my editor. “They’ve called it off,” she said, “Come on back to the office.” I’d seriously gotten halfway around the block when I got the call. So that was my first exciting assignment.
