In Tuesday's newspaper, we're planning a story about middle school students turning their studies into art, coverage of The News-Gazette track meet, and a column about pregnancy and running.
Students at Edison Middle School in Champaign have turned their studies into art, Meg Dickinson reports. Eighth-grade English students studying prejudice and injustice have turned their studies into sculptures, and they’re inviting the public to come see their work.
Patrick Wade will be covering the Urbana City Council meeting Monday night where the main topics will be a resolution in support of keeping the Police Training Institute at the University of Illinois and an increase in the gasoline tax.
In Sports, The News-Gazette's 31st Honor Roll Track Meet is Monday afternoon and evening at the University of Illinois track facility. The meet features some of the top track and field athletes from large and small schools in the area competing against each other.
And while we're on the topic of running, our Health & Fitness columnist, Jodi Heckel, writes that pregnancy is no reason for women to stop running. In fact, exercise in general can be good for both mom and baby.
