In the Lifestyle department of The Herald-Mail, we're working on a few projects I want to share with you. These will appear in the paper in the next two months: New teen section A month and a half ago, we launched a new teen section with the help of the target audience. Young readers worked on a committee to focus the content on what interests them. And other teens are helping to realize their ideas by writing stories and shooting photos to cover such topics. We wanted to find a new name to reflect the changes.

Other than the boys' impatience with their "slow" friends, around 75 kids were enjoying the humid Wednesday at Conoco.
