Learning about the past

A KCK High School wanted to teach kids about what it was like to live in segregated America. So they divided students into "light skinned" and "dark skinned" students, and the light skinned kids could only use certain water fountains and bathrooms and enter through certain doors. Another reporter covered the story dayside, and talked to some of the kids who organized the whole thing. I followed up nightside, talking to more students.

People helping people

I did a story last night about a program that helps families make ends meet, reducing grocery bills.
It's a faith-based program, with USDA support, but it's open to ANYONE and EVERYONE, regardless of income. And there are sites all across the country.

My work

So... hi again. I had hoped that my myspace blog would serve as a way to show my friends and family what stories I've been working on, especially when there's a story I think they'd be interested in or a story I just enjoyed doing. But MySpace has this nasty habit of breaking links to (where my stories would be posted.) Since the links don't work there, I thought I would try posting the links here on blogger instead.

SO... tonight I did a story about an urban swim team that is now treading water to stay alive. Its funding source is being forced to make cuts, and the swim team is on the list of cuts. The only thing that could save the team now is private donors stepping in.
