In what may be a first for the CDT (and for any other paper, for that matter), the three local stories on Page 1 are all by students.
Two are by Penn State journalism students, and the other is by Emile Greer, the Bill Welch Journalism Award winner at State High.
All are timely and important stories of the day.
The Penn State stories concern Four Loko and a need for alumni volunteers in health care. Greer's story concerns the new Harry Potter release.
Congratulations to the student reporters.
Our reporters, meanwhile, got a bit of a break as they finish a strong multi-day series on a community problem that will begin just after Thanksgiving. Watch for it.
