Child welfare reform source help?
So I’ve covered child welfare reform in Nebraska off-and-on for the past year; I’m looking to do an update, but what’s really missing from the conversation are voices of the caseworkers themselves. Current employees of the various contractors are under a lot of pressure to not talk to the media, but I know KVC recently laid off 75 employees … wondering if my Lincoln followers know anyone who was laid off who might be willing to talk about their experiences for a Nebraska Public Radio story.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reblog! Whether this process is succeeding or failing is vital for the state’s children, and the inside perspective of those who actually work with them needs to be told. Thank you.
Neat little story about the bar/venue where I work (Nirvana once played there; so did the Flaming Lips).
“Female veterans have twice the rates of PTSD and depression as male veterans. One in five female VA patients has experienced sexual harassment or assault, known as military sexual trauma, compared with one in 100 men.”

I’m putting the finishing touches today on a piece about the rise in popularity of group coupons for NET (Nebraska’s NPR afffiliate). In the photo above, Sheilah Glasco rearranges a dressing room at Stella Clothing in Lincoln. Stella recently offered their first group coupon — and things didn’t exactly go the way they anticipated …
Tune in Friday at 6:30 or 8:30 a.m. or 4:45 p.m. CT to listen to the broadcast (91.1 KUCV in Lincoln) or check it out online at http://netnebraska.org/radio
My first longer-form piece for NET, Nebraska’s NPR station. My delivery isn’t the best — a bit stilted and singsongy — but I’m getting better, and an old-hand coworker will be giving me some vocal coaching. Thoughts? I’ve done radio off and on for the last four years, but this is my first stint doing news radio.
Texan musicians living in Nebraska and vice versa?
For my dayjob (NPR reporter), I’m thinking of doing a story about Texas musicians (of any gender) living in Nebraska and Nebraska musicians (of any gender) living in Texas (specifically Austin and nearby locales) for SXSW coverage. If you know of an individual who fits either category, please message me. Thanks, everyone!
Anyone know any Nebraska cities w/ access to a national or local group coupon program apart from Lincoln/Omaha?
A la Groupon or the Journal Star’s “Today’s Deal” — someone already mentioned Kearney’s “Big Deals.”
It’s for an NPR Nebraska story. (Though they call it NET here.)
A cover story I wrote for the Omaha Reader on the increased use of tai chi, acupuncture, yoga, pet therapy and the like to treat PTSD in soldiers.
Looking for a “sound guy” in Nebraska who’s not a guy
I got into a conversation yesterday / very early this morning where my friend and I realized we don’t know any sound guys who are, in fact, not guys. Which made me wonder if it’s possible there aren’t any … but it’s more likely that we’re just overlooking people. If anyone knows a “sound woman” who works at a bar/venue/house show house, whatever, in Nebraska, please let me know — email@example.com. I think it could make a neat Hear Nebraska piece. Thanks!
