Saturday was a fun day, I got to not only work on two stories for the Silverton Appeal and Stayton Mail, but I also had a quick turnaround for the Statesman Journal.
The 140th celebration for Frank Lloyd Wright at the Gordon House at the Oregon Garden was a cool story, even if there weren't huge crowds. The Statesman Journal wanted first crack at the story, so I had to attend the event and then write it before the end of the day for the Sunday paper. I love doing that.
The only issue becomes how to change the story enough for the Silverton Appeal, and I have never charged extra for the service -- and I probably should.
It's fun, so I don't mind, but don't tell Cindy I do it for free. :)
The other story was about a high school student who won a trip to the National Rifle Association's Youth Education Seminar in Washington D.C. this summer. She is one of 40 students from around the nation and the only student from Oregon to attend. I will link to the story here after I am done writing it.
Now, back to work. Monday's are deadline days here at the Johnson household. I am only updating today because people won't call me back!
