Had a busy couple of days covering the city’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities. My schedule consisted of a 4-12 shift followed by a 9-6 meaning I was running on fumes by the end of my shooting on Saturday afternoon. Crazy couple of days, but I would much rather be crazy busy than bored sitting around the office any day.
I got pulled off a morning assignment and re-routed to the mayor’s office for a news conference introducing – well, actually re-introducing – Chuck Hurley as the interim South Bend Police Department police chief. He is a former chief. This all comes after the mayor announced the resignation of the former chief, Darryl Boykins, following a federal investigation into wiretapping procedures by the police department.
