Some worthy recipients.  Much love to my former students Jenni Avins, Ben Fractenberg and Collin Orcutt, in particular.

Catching up on bylines

May 12th, 2009 by Jack

I’ll start reviewing the quizzes Wednesday and have them back to you by week’s end.  I’ll also post a general quiz recap here on the blog.  In the meantime, I need to catch up on posting some class bylines from the past month…

Tim Persinko has been a Daily News regular, with a Good Friday feature, a shared front page byline for a story on the Swine Flu in Queens, a tale of a home run ball and briefs on a shooting and rising postal rates.

Ben Fractenberg has also been a busy man, first putting his 155-pound physique up against a giant in an arm wrestling contest (Note to Ben: I weigh 140; shoot for me next time), then reporting on “less strenuous” warm weather, auto accident and math stories, all for the Daily News.  Yesterday he had another story on “The Local” blog for the New York Times about a new TV show.

Meanwhile, Kristen Joy Watts and Mary Stachyra have continued their work on “The Local” too.   Kristen added some text to a previously mentioned slideshow on a labor services representative and Mary covered a public meeting on postal problems.  Kudos also to Kristen and another of my past Craft I students on a big time honor!

Last but not least, Marcella Veneziale wrote about growing noise complaints in Chelsea and the potential impact of a proposed outdoor advertising law, and Joe Walker produced a story and slideshow on the Building Green Expo.

Latest bylines

Ben Fractenberg had a story about fundraising efforts by area City Council hopefuls on “The Local” blog for the New York Times.

Also on “The Local,” Kristen Joy Watts had a slideshow about Ft. Greene matriarch Eula James.  Kristen is becoming the slideshow master.  Check out this one about labor services representative Khalil Rashid on her own web site.

Last but not least, Tim Persinko wrote about artful Coney Island trash cans in the Daily News.
