Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Feb. 7 through Feb. 12

Phenomonally busy on-call weekend staring me in the face: taxes, errands, one interview, one video, a story to write (Saturday), Divine Liturgy and health pages to assemble (Sunday), as well as minding the shop.


The timing is perfect because the muse is slow to perk up for Henry's section of Before the Blood, although I am dutifully pecking away at it for about half an hour every morning. I will continue to peck in tiny bursts through the weekend and next week, hoping that by then it will be awake and raring.

Back to the real work.

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." :)
