Chapter 12 Exercises 12.1 Name _____________________________________________ Date _____________ Use the stories, photos and maps in this budget to lay out pages with QuarkXPress, InDesign or other pagination software. The story lengths in the budget are approximations. Keep in mind that the photos don’t necessarily have to run with the stories, and that you can use some of the photos without running the stories. Make sure, however, that your captions are complete. These stories were not published on the same day, so don’t be concerned the conflicting time elements in them. The photos in this exercise are of low resolution to make them easier to download, and the images will degrade when they are enlarged. Don’t let this affect your news judgment. American Idol 18.5 words with four photos PASADENA Some cried, some laughed, but most important, everyone sang, all with the dream of becoming the next “American Idol.” Fox’s popular television talent show kicked off its national auditions Tuesday at the Rose Bowl, where an estimated 10,000 people attended.

Biker homecoming 14 inches ARCADIA Sheldon Pattinson had been a member of a local Harley-Davidson motorcycle group for only six months when he nearly died in an accident during a group ride near Temecula.

Gnatcatchers 15 inches SAN GABRIEL VALLEY The Fish and Wildlife Service likely will rethink boundaries on thousands of acres deemed critical to the survival of two imperiled species, the San Diego fairy shrimp and the coastal California gnatcatcher.

The 84-foot-tall frame, soon to be the worship site of more than 750 parishioners of St. John Coptic Orthodox Church, is blocking residents’ views of the mountains, they say. Residents admit they didn’t attend the county public hearing when the plans were approved but say they would have if they had known that the church was going to be massive. Landfill purchase OK’d 17 inches WEST COVINA A developer known for building shopping centers is buying nearly four acres of non-graded land at the former BKK Landfill for more than $1 million.

After interview requests from newspapers and TV networks in the last few days, Arianna has made the quick transition from a 10-year- old West Covina girl playing in her backyard pool, to a “little hero” who lost her left arm in an auto accident while saving her 2-year-old brother. Used cars 19.5 inches with map COVINA Shadydale Avenue residents are fuming because a nearby street corner has become a mini car lot for people who sell used vehicles.

Watertight hobby 19.5 inches SAN DIMAS Ed Macias stood on the pier under the morning sun and looked on as his son-in-law and two grandsons cruised on the water in a sailboat.
