You had an article about a lady that didn't get her tax forms. You could have told her about the 30 plus AARP and VIDA tax locations, including the VIDA location on 51st Ave between Osborn and Indian Sch RD.

I was home for a rare afternoon off yesterday afternoon, and thought I'd catch some early news before going to an early dinner. Ah, so Channel 12 has this EVB Live thing going on, so I thought I'd pick up a little news there. Little would be a stretch. None. An entire hour devoted to "The Best of...." type of report, which we get weekly doses of in the Sunday paper anyway, and are available online at any time you want to call it up. Beyond that, Light and Mai, who were never impressive in any setting, have to be embarassed to anchoring this tripe. When I was a little kid growing up in Iowa, we had afternoon shows like "Bill Riley" and "Bart's Clubhouse," which were kids shows and made no attempt to be anything else. This garbage has no identity. If 12 feels they have to offer this to the segment of the public clamoring for 30-something adults acting like teenagers, then cut it to 30 minutes and bring in some real news at 430. And please - drop the "EVB." Oh, and the morning show - MUCH better with Joe Dana at the helm. Keep Scott Light and his juvenile reporting out of legitimate news hours!

You referred to a video where a larger wild horse rescues a smaller one in the water. Said it would be a video online. Can't find it.

So I assume from the add on 12 you are doing away with EVB Live? Thanks. I had just stopped watching the news until 5:30. That format is fine for the morning, but I prefer serious news.

Well, they are scaling back "EVB Live" to one hour, starting on Monday 4/20. What are Scott and Tram going to do with their extra time? Perhaps they should co-anchor 12 News at Noon as well. I would hope that "EVB Live" would eventually morph into "12 News @ 4" with a lighter, but INFORMATIVE look at the day's news.

FAY FREDRICKS, reporter for NBC channel 12 news Phoenix needs a makeover or at least a wardrobe consultation.

Most of the time she looks like Out of Africa. Today she is wearing a multi-colored, abstract patterned, bat-winged caftan. She looks like she just rolled out of bed.

When what are are wearing distracts from what you are saying, time to make some profesional changes.

Regarding Fay Fredricks, channel 12 news: you cannot buy class and you cannot buy good taste.

Fay Fredricks is from Louisiana. Every day she dresses for the Mardi Gras.

Most days she looks like a circus clown. She definitely needs some fashion advice.

Fay Fredricks needs to lose 10#, cover her cleavage and ship her animal prints to Kenya. She would not know professional clothing if she sat on it.

Goodbye, Fay! Ms. Fredrick's unprofessional clothing choices is the kiss of death for her career.

The main thing is to tell Fay Fredricks we notice her bizarre clothing and we are not happy.

Sometimes people do not get promoted and they do not know why. Sometimes people ignore what people tell them, so they stay where they are. Fay Fredricks' outlandish outfits hurt my eyes, so I turned the channel.

FAY FREDRICKS often looks like a zebra....or maybe it is a holstein. She needs a fashion consultant!

Ugh they are annoying me so bad right now! I used to watch Fox 10 but I decided to give 12 a chance and they were good for a while even EVB Live despite hw dumb it seemed it was ok. But then they put Bruce Cooper on and his creepy high pitched voice drive me up the wall. He needs to go back to the 10pm sports where he belongs, you can even tell Tram looks uncomfortable, they need Scott Light. 12 News you have lost me as a viewer I am now watching ABC 15 until you get your news together

Still better than watching Patti Kirkpatrick stutter and stammer on Ch. 3
I must agree with that - why and how she remains as a local "anchor" I'll never understand!
