Image Hello everyone,

Here’s another installment of My Reporter Notebook. Here are a few of the stories I’m working on this week:

Slug: gp_Chinese New Year Summary: The Chinese New Year begins on Jan. 23. It is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. 2012 is the year of the dragon. This weekend, we attended some area celebrations. We’ll fill you in on all the details soon.

Slug: gp_Charticle on Black History Month Summary: This Charticle will explain the history of Black History Month as well as provide 10 Little Known Black History Facts

Slug: gp_Pro/Con Summary: This Pro/Con: Does Black History Month fuel racism?

Here’s where you come in to the picture. I’m always in need of sources. If you know of any little known area black history facts you would like to share for our compilation, let me know. We will get them included in the article.

Also I’m looking to include local thoughts and opinions for my Pro/Con: Does Black History Month fuel racism? If you would like to share your opinions with our readers, let me know. I’d love to hear from you.

If you can be of assistance to my search for sources, please contact me via email at or via phone at 361-580-6521. If you have any story ideas as they relate to courts/diversity, feel free to drop me a line too. Thanks.
