Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Jan. 31 through Feb. 5

Have to be out of the house by 7 a.m. today and have some work to do first, so I'll get straight to the heart (spoken like a true writer of vampire fiction).

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." :)
