Local scribe makes good

Posted By on Sun, Dec 6, 2009 at 8:07 AM

Heard of McSweeny's, the Dave Eggers journal? Next week, it will roll out a one-time 312-page newspaper, Panorama, for the San Francisco area, where print hasn't been doing so hot. Eggers got his start in newspapers and still has a soft spot for them.

I'm happy to learn that Jeremy Peppas, UCA-er grad, veteran sportswriter and now a reporter for Stephens Media in Little Rock, will be on the illustrious roster of writers in Panorama. Peppas' article is on San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis. Peppas writes about his rise from the foster care system as a Bruceton, Tenn., high school student in 2002 to being an all-American at Ole Miss and then All-Pro.

Some copies of Panorama will be distributed at bookstores, such as Barnes and Noble.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
