Daily Planet Headlines: Local villains, local champions



“Local villains, local champions”:https://www.tcdailyplanet.net/node/8722
by Mary Turck, TC Daily Planet
The Daily Mole’s nomination of civic villains touched a nerve with many readers, who fired back criticisms and nominations of their own. We’d like to hear from more of you, and we’d like to hear not only about the people you love to hate but also about the people whose work and lives inspire and challenge us. Minnesota Women’s Press features ‘changemakers’ — women and organizations who have made a difference in the lives of women and girls in 2007. Others nominate ‘heroes.’ We are calling them ‘champions,’ and we’d like to hear your nominations. Keep it local, and “tell us here.”:mailto:info@tcdailyplanet.net We’ll post the best (and the worst) of your nominations during the first week of January.

by Jeremy Iggers, Breaking Bread/The Rake
Monday night is cheap date night at the Bryant Lake Bowl – two soups or salads, two entrees, a bottle of wine, and two lines of bowling for $28. And since New Years Eve happens to fall on a Monday, they are offering a Not So Cheap Date Night – the same deal for $32, but with better than usual entrees and wine, and tablecloths on the table.

“Bagu Sushi – not your ordinary neighborhood restaurant”:https://www.tcdailyplanet.net/node/8721
by Phyllis Louise Harris, Asian Pages
To call Bagu Sushi a neighborhood sushi restaurant is partially accurate for it does offer a good variety of sushi and sashimi in a residential area. But, Bagu also has a selection of Thai and Korean dishes that are out of the ordinary and its approach is purely international.

“From grammar to accuracy”:https://www.tcdailyplanet.net/node/8702
by Mary Turck, TC Daily Planet
‘Do you put a disclaimer on your articles to identify the ones written by citizen journalists?’ I’m sure the questioner didn’t mean to sound insulting. She really believed that there is a huge gap between ‘real’ journalists and citizen journalists, and that ‘real’ journalists are much more trustworthy. Similar criticisms distinguish between bloggers and ‘real news.’ Many people are confused about where the lines are drawn, who to trust, and where the TC Daily Planet fits in all of this.
