Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Dec.13 through Dec. 18

WriteOn Christmas party last night, the best fun I've had in a long, long time: plenty of animation, good cheer,   smiles and laughter. Came home too late, but had the best sleep I've had in two weeks and woke up with a smile. Can't beat that!

And now, the round-up.

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." :)
