earthquake in indonesia

As sad as it is to report, as many as 4,000 could be dead or seriously injured under the rubble and debris after an earthquake erupted in Indonesia late Saturday. There have been an estimated 540 deaths thus far and rescuers as well as soldiers continue to search for bodies. Rescuers are using hammers, chisels and their bare hands to dig through the rubble, trying anything to find and rescue survivors. President Obama has assured everyone in Indonesia that the U.S. will do everything they can to provide aid and support for the victims. The situation can only be described as “devastating.” While many people are still missing and many others are dead, phone lines are damaged, bridges have fallen and houses have been left in rubble. No one expected this earthquake to occur and “shock” is the main feeling around Indonesia at this moment. We wish the people a speedy and robust recovery and our prayers go out to the victims and their families.

barrett, a few issues w/ your 4 new Panthers stories.

1. always get my approval first – you know this. Also, 150 words minimum. Erin Andrews is short.

these are from the editors meeting:
– photos should have a caption and be aligned left or right in the text.
– all articles should have at least two categories – the writer and then a subject (erin andrews for example – News – US News)

if you have any questions about these just stop by tonight at DL and I’ll be happy to show you what I mean.

otherwise, your writing is crisp, clear and well done as always. Keep it up (after you get my approval for your topics)
