Last Friday we had reporters at the County Building. They were there to get the word out about the County’s need for volunteer Marriage Commissioners. I wrote about that last week. And as promised here is the update on Mike Sugerman’s report on KCBS.
Mike spent a large part of the day with me. He was sworn in as a Marriage Commissioner and I trained him. He shadowed me to see how we do weddings and then he was to do a ceremony. Only everyone was too shy and didn’t want to be on the radio. So he interviewed me and two other commissioners. Finally we had a brave couple who would be on the radio. The bride listened to him every morning, so was excited to have “that voice” do the ceremony. He does have a magnificent voice.
Sneaky Marriage Desk Clerk D took pictures of the wedding. Some are through the glass door, some she took with door opened a little.

Us from the front. Mike was having a great time. Big smiles.
The witness taking pictures too.
Last shot of Mike as he pronounced them married.
He was high as a kite on excitement after the wedding. He said he understood why we volunteered as Marriage Commissioners. It was such a happy fun job.
This morning Mike Sugerman gave his radio report. The link goes to a written report. Down in the middle of the page is a link (this is a small pop up window) to the audio report. I have my fingers crossed this works. Every one has had trouble with this. If you have trouble, leave a comment and I will try to get a better link.
The on line news agency has not put up their report. If it shows, I will link it too.
