The governor comes to Big Beaver Elementary. A rescue crew pulls a body from the Ohio River. There’s a rally to end prescription drug abuse, and news that a local animal shelter is at maximum capacity.
No, this isn’t the rundown for a local nightly newscast somewhere in western Pennsylvania. They are video news clips out of Beaver County, population 170,000, just outside Pittsburgh along the Ohio border, but there’s something different about them: There’s no anchor or on-screen reporter, and if there’s any narration at all it’s void of that familiar newscaster voice inflection.
