Here's what we are working on for Eyewitness News for March 1, 2013.
"Indoors or out, no one relaxes in March, that month of wind and taxes, the wind will presently disappear, the taxes last us all the year."
- Ogden Nash
Our version of March Madness!
Go Team! Tonight the Eyewitness News Basketball team will face the Wilkes-Barre Area School District All Stars.
The Game is at Solomon Plains Educational Complex at 7:30 pm. The proceeds from tonight's game will benefit the Children's Miracle Network and The Janet Weis Children's Hospital,
The team has spent hours talking about how good they are! Coach Phil Schoener and the team have spent minutes going over the play book. Andy Mehalshick will be there- as offensive coordinator (if he plays it will be in a tie and suit), Tim Kelchner will be showing off some of his unique moves ! Also in tonight's line up: Dave Kuharchik (he is forecasting a good game), and the ladies of the court Monica Madeja and Jasmine Brooks,
Representing behind the scenes: Caitlin Rowe, Sarah Navin, and Jason Cohen
