Most Memorable Story: It had to have been a story I was assigned in the small town of Fruita, Colo. The story itself was neat; however, to get to where we had to go involved sitting on the very edge of a Blackhawk helicopter. I should also mention I am terrified of heights! I think I may have had a mild heart attack.
