NCRA Members Find Working as Extras Helps Promote the Profession

By the NCRA

Working as an extra on a TV show or movie is a great way for NCRA members to promote the wonderful work being done by court reporters and captioners every day. It can also be a lot of fun. Two NCRA members recently told the JCR Weekly about their experiences being extras.

Court Reporter Named Honorary Bailiff for Supreme Court Special Session

By Kansas Courts

“I’m proud of our court system and the way it works. It’s a very fair system, and I enjoy being a part of that,” she said.

Her part—since 1975—has been as a court reporter. She records a court’s oral proceedings so that what was said can be read back in court or referenced later.

“I’ve enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the courts, listening to the stories. I think I’ve heard everything after 43 years, but it seems there’s something new every week,” she added.

She will take on a different role, however, when the Kansas Supreme Court travels to Lawrence for a special session the evening of April 1.

Howe, who is a court reporter for the 7th Judicial District, will serve as honorary bailiff at the special session. Chief Judge Peggy Carr Kittel selected her for the job. The 7th Judicial District is composed of Douglas County.

Howe is a court reporter for District Judge Sally Pokorny.
