Where We've Worked - July 2016

Hello and welcome to this July 2016 edition of Where We’ve Worked! As with any month, our reporters traveled far and wide in July, and we wanted to take the opportunity to show you some of their excursions.

Our first stop on this edition of WWW is Louisville, the largest city in the state of Kentucky. Boasting as the site of the legendary Kentucky Derby and many other attractions of The Bluegrass State, Louisville is well-known for its deep history of equestrian competition and folk music.

Spotlight on Colombia Heights

Since the Columbia Heights metro opened in 1999, the surrounding area has been a hotspot for developers, entrepreneurs, and all kinds of new residents. With an abundance of activities for people of all ages to take in, this once quaint neighborhood is now one of the most diverse and entertaining communities in the District.

As one of the most culturally significant cities in the world, D.C. has been the setting for an incredible number of successful films. In fact, five of the of the American Film Institute’s Top 100 movies of all time are set primarily in the District! While we can’t go into full detail about all of them, we wanted to take an opportunity to highlight just a few of our favorite movies set in the D.C. area.

While we’re certainly busy this time of year, two weeks ago some of our staff had the exciting opportunity to attend the annual conference of the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers. Held in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, this year’s meeting was in part sponsored by NRGCO, and featured numerous activities dedicated to the latest and greatest in digital court reporting.
