  1. Sidelines story

I went to the Bubba Gandy Seafood Market and covered its grand opening. I interviewed customers, the owner and his partners and took photos of live Blue Crab and crawfish, as well. http://mtsusidelines.com/2018/04/photos-bubba-gandy-seafood-offers-murfreesboro-new-flare

2.   Sidelines meeting

On Fridays at 2 p.m. in the CIM, Sidelines holds a meeting to discuss how last weeks coverage went and what events and news needs covered this week. The meetings usually start off with Brinely or Marissa welcoming everyone in and then we split up into our groups: news, sports, lifestyles or music. I attend the lifestyles group meetings and there are other Sidelines practicum students as well as Sidelines writers, Tayhlor, the editor, and Wendy, the assistant editor. Taylor starts our group meetings off by letting us give pitches and then she will pitch ideas to us that are up for grabs as well. On the budget for this week are listicles like: How to avoid end-of-the semester stress, movie review of A Quiet Place, Earth Day Celebration article and Dog Day event at NoBaked bakery. This week I am doing a listicle about how medieval art captures your mood as a senior in college. Stay tuned!

3. 10 Copyediting Errors

Original: “Dog Haus Biergarten first opened in 2010 in Pasadena, California, and it has now opened its 30th location, and the first one in Tennessee, at 521 NW Broad Street. The inventive gourmet hot dog joint celebrated its grand opening Saturday and even served guests free “Haus dogs” all day. Excitement in the city was evident by a seemingly endless line.”

3 Corrections: “Dog Haus Biergarten first opened in 2010 in Pasadena, California, and it has now opened its 30th location (no comma) and the first one in Tennessee (no comma) at 521 NW Broad Street. The inventive gourmet hot dog joint celebrated its grand opening Saturday and (cut the word ‘even’) served guests free “Haus dogs” all day. Excitement in the city was evident by a seemingly endless line.”

Original: “No hormones or antibiotics are ever added to the Dog Haus’ meats; their hot dogs are 100 percent beef. Lavigne said these commitments go back to the restaurants motto:

“What do we want to eat? Personally, we want to eat the cleanest foods and we want to give that to our customers. We think our customers and our communities deserve the same thing, so we go that extra mile. We try to preserve a good price point so that everyone can enjoy it.”

1 Correction: “Family and friends environment” is the motto. (The block quote was just something the director wanted to add on to elaborate.)

Original: “It feels really nice because I did put a lot of work and effort into this collection,” Oleis said. “I was worried because it’s tie-dye. That’s really loud and I don’t know if that’s for everyone, so I’m glad that it was appreciated.”

Original: “Mandy Castalde, one of the show’s head coordinators, appeared calm and collected as she chatted after the show. Castalde’s role included keeping track of hair and makeup looks, confirming that all categories and model line-ups were correct and making sure that the show’s few rehearsals ran smoothly.”

Original: “Something like this high-neck dress from ASOS, is perfect for an Easter lunch. The pastel blue paired with the green leaves and white and pink flowers gives this look a sense of freshness. The sleeves are sheer and drape loosely on the arms, which gives off a whimsical vibe, and the waist is cinched to add a little more definition.  Since its a high neck dress, you don’t have to worry about accessorizing too much. A simple pair of earrings and a statement shoe are all you need to complete this look.”

Original: “The classic, comfortable, go-to Easter attire is are maxi dresses. This peach colored one from ASOS is perfect. It’s loose and flawy, which makes it perfect for going to lunch or dinner in. The ruffled hem and flared sleeves gives the dress a hyper feminine look. The colors are more muted, so it’s great if you want something a neutral  and toned down. This is something you can keep simple with minimal accessories and a great pair of sandals.”
