My Daily Herald Finale!

Here it is, my last time in The Daily Herald.

This was all in the paper yesterday, but with all the graduation stuff going on yesterday I didn't have time to post links to my stories.

First up, a story on Eclipse, an a cappella group that originated in Logan at Utah State University.

Totally Eclipse: Vocal group keeps spotlight on Utah a cappella

A cappella seems to be a big thing in Utah especially. So the headline I suggested was "Utah cappella." Guess it didn't make the cut.

Second, a story on "My Son Pinocchio" playing at the SCERA Center. It's a really interesting play, it's the Pinocchio story from Geppetto's point of view. Everyone I interviewed described the story the same way: "As Pinocchio becomes a real boy, Geppetto becomes a real father."

And, the briefs:

Sound Hot Ticket: Baroque or bust ...

Perfect Date: Culture Clash

Arts Briefs: A little bit country

Sound Briefs: Farewell to jolly ol' England

And, there it is. I really enjoyed working at The Daily Herald. I had a lot of free reign, to work by myself and write stories pretty much however I wanted to. The only thing Doug really changed throughout the semester were typos. I liked that hands-off approach a lot. And I really enjoyed writing about arts and entertainment. It was similar enough to my background that I didn't feel like a fish out of water, but different enough that I learned something new.

It was a great job, and I really enjoyed it.
