This day in time-The Front page!!

As a person with an education in journalism and more importantly experience being a journalism educator I love reading the front page of newspapers from around the world. I love looking at the design and knowing that people sweated and swore to bring me those photos, headlines and articles...some of my favorite memories were doing the same things with my students.

So in honor of Ocoee's upcoming birthday into this world I would like to put a call out for people to send me their local newspaper on the day of her birth. I will post here, on Facebook, and send out emails and texts the day she arrives so if you can grab a paper from that day, drop it in the mail to : Janelle Fey-550 Saint Lazaria Circle, Anchorage, AK 99508. I will save these and one day we will look back and see what was happening on the day she was born.

Hubby is really worried it will be on 9/11 and he thinks that would be a tragic day to be born. I think history has a way of changing in unpredictable ways so I am just an interested observer of this crazy thing we called history and time.

Thanks in advance!

Just a shout out to me old Fremont friends today...On this day in 1844, the western explorer John C. Fremont arrives at the shores of the Great Salt Lake, one of the many areas he will map for the lasting benefit of a westward-moving nation.

  1. I love this idea Janelle! Tell Mike that you're not due for two more weeks. Chances aren't Sunday.
