Woodland Park Elemtary Teacher on Ellen Show
NORFOLK - A Norfolk elementary school teacher recently took a break from teaching her fourth grade class at Woodland Park Elementary School and went Hollywood. Jamie Blum and her sister Ashley Pokorny of Howells were guests of Ellen Degeneres last week and taped a segment called “Bad Paid-For Photos.” Blum says about 20 years ago, she and her sister had a picture taken of the two of them in their dance outfits, that didn’t turn out as well as they’d hoped. Blum said her sister sent the picture to the show's producers last spring. They received a call Friday the 14th of February and were in Los Angeles to tape the show Tuesday the 18th. Blum says she and Ashley received the royal treatment in Hollywood with first-class hotel accommodations, a VIP tour of Universal Studios and front-of-the-line tickets for rides at the studio’s theme park. Blum believes the show will be part of Tuesday’s episode. The Ellen Show airs Monday through Friday afternoons at 3 on Omaha’s Channel 6, and at 4, on Sioux City’s KTIV, Channel 4.
