About

“Place” is a strange-looking word in print, but its sound evokes emotion from nearly everyone with a heart. Place can be another place in time, a piece of ground, a web site, an idea from a book. Perhaps “place” is an experience you’d love to share with someone you care about, or someone you once knew.

This is a place to share my favorite places.

While I am employed by the City of Fort Smith, Arkansas, TracyPlaces is strictly a personal blog, maintained with my own equipment, internet accounts, and on my own time. Opinions I express here on any topic are purely my own.

  1. Just read your remarks about Wendell and the folks at 4. They were nice, but you mentioned running the camera for Bozo. He was at channel 7. Did you work there too?

  2. Fred —

    Bozo was, indeed, at KATV for many years. In fact, that’s where I appeared on the shozo bo in the late 60s or early 70s.

    At some point in the mid-80s, Gary Weir broke ties with KATV and flopped on down the street to KARK. By then, it was a Saturday morning show if I remember right — and no longer a daily afternoon program. Lighting that set was a total pain. We had to blow up helium balloons, too. I forget how it worked, but we taped a segment designed to get every youngster’s face on camera — using a song. Usually it was “Celebrate” by Kool and the Gang.

  3. Tracy nice comment today on the Valley PR Blog on RE: Karen Hughes. I agree about making sure we are open-minded as communication professionals. Kudos to you for pointing that out.

  4. Thank you, David, for stopping by and leaving a comment. Blogging is a fascinating communications tool and a wonderful form of expression. The only way to get good at it is to practice.

    I hope each individual post is part of a tapestry about things that matter to each of us. It seems to me that often, “places” are at the heart of what’s important.
