The big news story of the day:
Everyone is required to submit their social issues story today (Tues. Jan 26) by 4 p.m.. I will provide feedback and suggestions and return it by Thursday afternoon (Jan. 28).
The final version of your story is due at 8:30 a.m. next Tuesday, February 2. That is the version that I will mark in order to assign a grade for the social issues story assignment/10.
The story you submit next Tuesday, February 2 at 8:30 a.m. should be ready to post to the J-News site along with pictures.
