Darcy Pohland, the WCCO TV reporter who died in her sleep last week, had a lot of fans around the Twin Cities. So perhaps it's no surprise that Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has issued an official proclamation making today Darcy Pohland Day. There was also a memorial service for her today at the Guthrie Theater.
