Megan Rhea October 27, 2010 Dr. Mitha Writing for the Media 9.9 Additional Stories Construct a two-minute newscast based on the following items. Your instructor may assign these individually or as a group. RETIREMENT The speaker of the state House of Representatives, Milton Bradford, has announced that he will not seek re-election for two reasons. First, he has served in the House for 27 years and has been speaker for the past ten. Second, he is a Democrat from Logansville and has always been closely aligned with the state's education lobby and has recently worked for substantial pay raises for the state's elementary and secondary school teachers.

The walkout was called because machinists have been working without a contract, and Barney Olive, president of the union, said this situation cannot continue. "We have bargained in good faith, but we can see no evidence that General Motors is doing the same thing."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
