Some days, it’s hard to escape the news. Being a reporter in a small town has its perks for sure. I am glad I’m not a reporter in a bigger city where controversy runs rampant and breaking news is a steady stream of crime and death. But that doesn’t make me exempt from feeling burned out when it comes to the news on occasion.
In many circles, I’m the girl that knows what’s going on in Brenham. My friend from high school will call me and ask what’s going on around town, how coronavirus numbers are looking in Washington County and how I feel about national news topics such as police brutality, wearing masks in public or how Hurricane Laura effected southeast Texas and Louisiana.
