Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, March 27 through April 1

The last weekend was a productive working weekend. I did my usual weekend editor duties as well as a bit of catching up (just a bit, but a dent of a bit) with features.

I wrapped up my character questionnaires for Henry's section of Before the Blood and made some notes specifically for chapter three. Looking forward to sinking into the story this weekend.

But first - I must get past an extremely busy Friday.

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." :)
