Scotty's To Georgia

Last night I did my first assignment on deadline: covering the American Idol party at Scotty's Brewhouse in Muncie, Ind.

I covered the event and rushed back to the newsroom to write the story, about the craze that was, or more accurately, wasn't, at Scotty's.

The finished product is here, and let me tell you, it was fun to write on deadline and get it in within an hour after starting it.

Another interesting thing I ran across this morning, after finishing my articles for tomorrow's Star Press, is this map that details gas prices across the country. You can type in any county and find the average. Quite interesting, especially for me, who is travelling with my partner in crime to the Peach State.

Also, I am thinking about two story ideas, including one about how and why, 90 percent of students pass on to the next grade, while only 30 percent do the necessary work to succeed at their given level. Controversial, yes, but interesting, well yes too.

And, one more happy story: CNNMoney is announcing that if the U.S.A. has a bad hurricane season, a 60 percent chance, we will probably be looking at $6 a gallon gas by the end of the year.

So, I guess you were right Uncle Bob; just like you always said.
