>Lloyd served in Vina Del Mar, Chile, from 201-2012.Now that is
a LONG mission!
I love this article! For that young man to give up two years of his life to
serve his church when he also left behind a great college football experience
reveals true character and integrity. God bless him for being valiant and above
the ordinary ways of the world. He has inspired millions by his example of
extraordinary service and commitment. What a terrific companion he will make
for some lucky young woman.
Caprice,Do you love the story or the article. I thought it was a
great story but the article was terribly written. "He told the Standfor
Athletics" was in each of the first three paragraphs. How many times does
he have to repeat that phrase? Surely staff writers for the Des News can do
better than that.
I am surprised that Dukester from Vancouver, Wa. doesn't realize that
professional writers of all news/sports articles bend over backwords to clarify
the source of every person's statement in each paragraph because they have
been trained to do so. It is far better to be accurate in providing the same
source in three paragraphs than to state the source only once and hope that
everyone knows who they are talking about in the other two paragraphs! I
actually think the article was very well written specifically for the reasons
I agree with Millie Bess that this article was very well written and followed
the guidelines that all journalists are required to follow in giving credit when
mentioning quotes. I know that they must follow a specific guideline to prevent
lawsuits. So, even if the same thought were mentioned in a similar manner, each
one was a bit different and followed the guideline for journalists. As a former
journalism teacher, I have always been impressed with the work of this writer.
He is one of the best in the business in my opinion.
