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

Did anyone else's week fly past?

And if I thought this past week sped by, listen to my schedule for today: meetings/interviews (all-in-person) at 9:45, 10:30, 11, noon, 1:30, 3 and then teaching tonight at 6:30. Oh, and I'm also the weekend editor with two appointments tomorrow and a story for Monday that needs writing and submitting.


But I still plan to spend one dedicated hour to Before the Blood. That's reasonable, don't you agree?

And now for something completely real.

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 throughout 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.

Another option: I do post the briefs and calendars on Twitter during the week, so you're welcome to follow me at @Denise_Unland61.

And if you do peek at these stories, to quote our editor Kate Schott, "Thank you for reading The Herald-News." :)

“She’s not going to get special treatment because she’s queen,” her mother Lucia Williams said. “I try to teach her that the purpose of the crown is not to be all ‘high and mighty,’ but to be kind and help others. Eventually, we’d like to help her find a platform she can focus on.”
