Create a page on the news blog to highlight stories about the Commons
Please create a page on the news blog that will collect news stories about the Commons. For each news story, please include a short excerpt and a screenshot that links back to the original post.
You might comb through the news blog to remind yourself of stories in the CHE, etc.

Cool idea. Would it be okay to use the magazine template option on the Canvas theme, and make the stories sliders? And I was thinking what to call the page - is it too corny to call it "Buzz"? Something like that... Or - "In the News" or "Mentions." Any ideas?
