Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Dec. 6 through Dec. 11


That was this week. And that will be this weekend. And next week.

I remember Ron asking me once what EXACTLY do I do in my attic office all day? He reasoned that it didn't take fourteen hours to write two stories.


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." :)

Santa's Helpers in Braidwood make and give handcrafted items

THIS is one story I really wanted to videotape. A dozen or so elderly, kind and humble women just celebrated its twentieth anniversary of making and donating lap rugs and other apparel to anyone that needs them. This isn't a token operation. They are permanently set-up with sewing machines in a school and meet weekly. Furthermore, they participate in craft fairs to raise money for materials.
