What is news? By definition, news is change, anything that is a break from the norm. Sometimes news is something relatively small, such as a new fro-yo place opening in the TMB, but it is considered news nonetheless.
One of this week's stories is about a JSU student, Ed Moore III, who has a new local news show on Thursday afternoons at 5:00 on WLJS. We also want to introduce you to a man who made national news and was one of CNN's Heroes for 2009. Doc Hendley, who founded the Wine to Water organization, will be speaking at the Leone Cole Auditorium on Tuesday, September 11th at 7:00 p.m. You can read more about both of these stories on page 2.
If you're interested in writing news yourself, remember that The Chanticleer is having a meeting for new writers also on next Tuesday. It will be at 5:00 p.m. in Self Hall room 180, and we'd love to see you there! Who knows what newsworthy events you'll discover this year?
