I could be reporting from home soon. Do you think the boss would let me "relax" the dress code a bit? At least, let me read the news with a Labrador sleeping on my foot.

From testing for radiation to testing for #COVID19 . How ASU is swapping projects to respond to the outbreak... on @ABC15  at 10

The top 30 #Facebook  pages include Facebook, CocaCola, Christiano Ronaldo, Harry Potter, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Vin Diesel, and China's Xinhua News Agency. That's two dead people, one fictional character, and a state-run media agency, but not a single world leader.

Is there a crisis in AZ prisons? Hundreds of staff sent home for failing health screenings. 35 inmates tested out of 40,000+. The @abc15  investigators with disturbing new info.... next at 6. #COVID19 

The first confirmed case of #COVID19  in Arizona prisons. New information from @DaveBiscobing15  at 10.

A 600% markup on protective equipment for first responders? That's the accusation from 2 AZ congressmen... @abc15  at 10

Scammers praying on people's fears because... they're just a bunch of bass trolls. (dang autocorrect). @LetJoeKnow  tells you what to watch for at 10

There will be stories of hope and humanity in our newscast. I promise. Besides, it's not like you have somewhere to go.😉 @abc15  at 10.

The Arizona Secretary of State is expecting a record turnout for tomorrow... More than 1.1M ballots by tomorrow night. That's the highest number ever for a primary.

Wow.... unbelievable showing for a rally at the state Capitol... teachers filling the streets for blocks! #RedForEd

Tensions high on #Mizzou  campus tonight... threats of a shooting tomorrow. New on #abc15  at 10.

To be clear: Gov Ducey's "we have a deal" means he and GOP leadership have worked out the particulars on the 20 by 2020 plan, and believe they have something they can pass. No negotiations have taken place with #RedForEd  and it's unlikely it meets teacher demands.

Just in: School closure contingency plan passes unanimously in House and Senate. Governor expected to sign. Decision on closing schools for the remainder of the school year expected within days. @abc15  at 10

Breaking: AZ public school closure extended until April 10th. There will be no statewide assessment testing this year.

Just in... we've learned some of the ASU students with COVID-19 were part of an arts program and traveled to NYC just two weeks ago. What we know on @abc15  at 10

If supporting public education is biased, then I’m biased. I care about the future of children in our state and I make no apologies for it.

When we can't fill teaching positions and are forced to fill jobs with un-certified people, the quality of our schools will deteriorate. This is a simple labor market equation. We're not paying the going rate for qualified people.
