  1. I want her back on Q-13! She was the only reason I watched the news. She is Brains and Beauty all in the same package.

    1. Unlikely that Jamie would leave her new career for the dying tv news biz. As stations turn to more consolidation and news services from stations in other larger markets, the future is not bright for local tv news. Plus, the politics in the newsroom, favoritism, back-biting etc. etc.

  2. I miss Jamie Tompkins a Whole lott, She was the only reason I watched the news she was/is great doing the news. I miss her so much I’m sad.
    Maybe one day she will return to q13 that would be great.

    -Has anyone actually _seen_ Adam Mertz this past year ? (LDueweke’s beau) Any functions despite his thin instagram… In her actually including reference to him…for over a year?

    1. from Liz Dueweke–2022 tore open cavernous holes in my heart, eroded old patterns, and gave way to revealing, massive hurt. Sometimes when all I see is loss or grief, I remember I have never truly been alone. Now I enter 2023 and those cavernous holes feel much less intimidating, patched up with the unconditional love of my chosen family. I am forever mending and healing by the hands and hearts of people who won’t ever let me fall. I am held together constantly by the hug of a girlfriend who is thrilled to see me, a morning text to make sure I am still okay, a last minute bike ride, or a cheap happy hour drink in exchange for priceless laughter and tears. I want to continue filling my life with these relationships and these memories that matter. These are my people: who despite my glaring mistakes and disgusting failures, remind me that I am loved and am still going to be okay. I am collecting the rest of my years until the day I die just like this: spilling over with gratitude for all of these moments, memories and absolute saviors who remind me why life’s beautiful instants are also worth enduring the pain and hurt. To my chosen family of friends, lovers and confidants: may you all understand my everlasting appreciation for you and be just as surrounded with the same love and support heading into this new year as you have shown me.
