all the time.
So, a News-Press reporter was surprised to call and hear a staffer
answer: "Jason for Congress."
When the mistake was pointed out, Roe and the confused staffer

The first thing many people worry about when a News-Press photographer
wants to come over is whether their house is clean and tidy.
Barbara Kouri, president of the Jewel City Doll Club, wasn't sure she
was ready for her home to be pictured in a story about a doll show at the
