"I doubt people would have their "beloved" chicken-pets, as you described, run freely where dogs could kill them. I think a coyote would get to the chicken first!"

"Good story, Chris. You had me going right up until end. Then you mentioned finally addressing the pension liability and I realized this article must be written with tongue firmly in cheek."

To Young Writers. Reporting and Writing A Long Story

By Chris Lavin

Good writing isn't brain surgery. It's communicating

well, artfully and, always with an understanding of

how the readers can follow your thinking.

My approach to talking to writers about writing longer

stories usually breaks down like this:

Chris: I was telling you at Cosmos about Lynn O'Shaughnessy, the author/journalist who writes about finding the right college at the right price. Her Book is called "The College Solution." She's got her own website by the same name: http://thecollegesolutionblog.com/ and she also blogs about college at CBS MoneyWatch web site. She's spoken to parents at High Tech High, Our Lady of Peace, Grossmount HS, La Costa Canyon, and she's looking for more speaking opportunities. She'd be a great resource for you at LJCD--and she lives in La Mesa!

Hello,
I have been enjoying reading about La Mesa. Thank you for developing this News Paper. I have invited my friends to joing. I do have a comment, it is my opinion that the sound that accompanied the video about Reggie Bush had inappropriate language.
Thank you

Source: CNBC
As the tiny home movement sweeps the nation, potential adopters of this "living tiny" lifestyle might need to seriously consider whether it suits their personalities, as there are challenges to living small. This
includes having very few possessions, a zero-tolerance policy for clutter, and not being able to invite
many guests over to visit. Read the full story
