FOX8 Friday Football Frenzy high school scoreboard: Playoffs round 3


Bob always knew he was meant to live in North Carolina, it just took him a while to get here. He was born and raised in Chicago and went to the University of Missouri for Journalism school. After working in the “real world” for a year, he went back for his graduate degree in broadcast journalism and two days after graduating, found himself driving to North Carolina for a job as a sportscaster in Greenville. From there, he went to Washington State to be a sportscaster for a couple of years, before finding his way back to the Piedmont and making the switch to covering news.

You can see most of Bob’s work on the FOX8 10:00 News, and sometimes on our other newscasts. You’ll also see Bob filling in as an anchor occasionally. Politics, philosophy and literature are among his favorite subjects to read and discuss, when he’s not playing soccer or spending time with his wife, Jean-Marie, and their 4 children.

    The Buckley Report: Adopting from China

    China recently announced it is easing its one-child per family policy. And the world over, thousands of people gasped. It’s not that fewer children will be leaving China – that trend is already well underway. It’s the reaction of the thousands that had a chance to leave, to start a new life, who are now thinking back on how different their lives would be if this policy had either been eased 20 years ago or never put in place. The policy […]

    Buckley Report: Breaking into music

    Who wouldn’t want to be Paul McCartney or Adele? Admit it – you’ve sung loudly in the shower thinking you could do what they do. But, yeah, it’s a long shot. “It is one in a million,” says Mark Sarisky. He runs the highly-regarded Larry Gatlin School of Music at Guilford Technical Community College. “If it was easy, everyone would do it. And, believe me, everyone tries.” TJ Gaillard is one of those. He’s still only 20, but has a […]

    Local man experiences ‘love at first sound’ after life-changing implant

    THOMASVILLE, N.C. — What’s your favorite sound? Birds chirping? Waves crashing onto the shore? Your children laughing? What about water running out of a faucet or the sound of your tires on the road as you drive? Those may not seem like sounds anyone would cherish, but when you’re living Brandon Jones’ life, they might just be. Jones has lived a life without sound, but his deafness has never prevented his success. Now, at 24, Jones wants to hear the voices […]

    Minimalists living the minimalist life

    How much stuff do you have? No, really, think about all the things you have … all the money you’ve spent on it … the space you’ve dedicated to it. How much does that contribute to what makes you truly happy? That’s the message of the minimalist movement – not that work and “things” are inherently bad but that they may not be what makes us most happy and where we need to put the emphasis in our lives. In […]

    Who is watching you? City surveillance cameras are popular but raise concerns

    There is almost nowhere you can go in public anymore where you aren’t being watched — not by the other people on the street, but by people you can’t see. Surveillance cameras are everywhere. The United States hasn’t quite gotten to the level places in Europe. England, for example, has nearly 2 million surveillance cameras, the majority of them in their largest city, London. But American cities are putting them up at a swift pace — Greensboro and Winston-Salem are […]

    Alamance Co. ‘Scare Masters’ have worked with big Hollywood names; now run local attraction

    SNOW CAMP, N.C. — The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Sleepy Hollow … they have nothing on the Jonas brothers. Born and raised in Alamance County, Dean and Starr Jones both earned degrees in acting and directing from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, before heading to Hollywood to ply their trade. It turns out, most of what they ended up doing – and still do – in Hollywood is makeup and props, but it has allowed them to work […]

    Battling online predators in Alamance County

    The technology gap between many parents and their children is leading to trouble, when parents don’t know what their children are getting into, online. There are more than 400,000 registered sex offenders in the United States and national studies say fewer than a third of sexual assaults are ever reported. With new apps available that one convicted child molester said are, “Well-known in our industry …” the job of finding these people before they find your child is getting more […]

    Creating a ‘super brain’

    You never know what moment in history inspires another — especially when they are nearly half a century apart. Anyone over the age of 50 remembers when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Miguel Nicolelis was 8 years old when he watched it from his home in Brazil and that inspired him to become a scientist. In this edition of the Buckley Report, see how Dr. Nicolelis is now working on a walk that is also “out of this world,” […]

    ‘Ghost track’: Life after racing in North Wilkesboro

    WILKES COUNTY, N.C. – Admit it – you’ve driven by it and wondered, “What’s going on, there? Why is that thing still there?” “It,” is the old speedway at North Wilkesboro. There hasn’t been a Sprint Cup-level race there in almost two decades. When NASCAR pulled out of town, it was like a divorce – and the town is still trying to recover. In this edition of the Buckley Report, hear from the people who live there about what life […]

    ‘Foster Grandparents in Schools’ project

    GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — What’s more comforting than the love of a grandparent? That’s the idea behind a program from Senior Resources of Guilford County. They thought that people around a certain age (whether they are truly grandparents or not) bring a certain wisdom and love that can be invaluable to young students, in particular. So they put them into classrooms around the county to assist teachers who might not otherwise have any help. See how they work, in this […]

    A walk in the woods no walk in the park

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — In his recent movie, Robert Redford hiked the Appalachian Trail in less than two hours. Real life isn’t like that. Redford’s new movie is based on a book called “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson — a man who really did hike the entire Appalachian Trail. But as you’ll see in this edition of the Buckley Report, “A Walk in the Woods” is no walk in the park, so to speak. But that doesn’t mean […]

    Autistic local artist proves disability should not hold you back

    In the movie, “Rain Man,” Dustin Hoffman played an autistic man who had what are called, “Savant” abilities. Not every person with autism has savant abilities, but about 10% of them do. Blake Henkel’s parents don’t believe his talent is the result of the savant situation. In fact, it appears Blake’s work is the result of a lot of hard work, polishing what does appear to be a significant skill. In this edition of the Buckley Report, meet Blake and […]
