Okay, busy morning today! Have to be in Plainfield 9-ish and work (and a walk) to get done before then. So I'll skip the editorializing and get right to the story links.
You can check out the health, faith, and arts and entertainment calendars. Three of them can be found at the link below. http://www.theherald-news.com/lifestyle/
Also at the link are the community feature briefs I write/edit (no byline). The fourth calendar, Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page through the week.
And now (drum roll, LOL), the stories:
