Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Nov. 29 through Dec. 4

Coming into the home-stretch of a couple months of holiday hustle, features-wise, and I must say, I've learned to manage it much better than last year. Crazy, crazy busy, but love feeling so productive.

So for most of the hours of my day, what do I do?

Well, check out the health, faith, and arts and entertainment calendars. Three of them can be found at the link below. Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page through the week.

Feature briefs for Tuesday (health), Thursday (faith), Friday (Arts and Entertainment), and Sunday (People) are also edited (texted and photos) by the lady of this blog, but only the stories have bylines.

And if you do peek at these stories, to quote our editor Kate Schott, "Thank you for reading The Herald-News." :)
