Week 4 Assignment: Three News Stories
Because you are now familiar with how to write a lead and a nut graf, you will now focus on writing a complete news story. In this assignment you will write three complete news stories culling from the facts below. Be sure to use a dateline, AP style, source attribution and write in complete sentences (not in headlines). Also, remember to avoid subjective language.
Story #1
Information
Fire broke out at a restaurant on North Main Street in Cranston.
Building was vacant, out of business.
Was once the Lamplighter Café.
Fire is suspicious; origin unknown.
Fire was reported at about 3 o’clock in the morning on Friday.
One firefighter was hurt fighting the blaze.
Listed in satisfactory condition.  Minor injuries.
It took firefighters 8 hours to get under control.
All of this information was according to Cranston fire officials.
Story #2
Information
This story happened in NYC.
Near Times Square, actually this morning at around 6:30.
It happened in an office building near Times Square
Police say it appears to have been a murder-suicide
Three people were shot. They’re all dead
It occurred at 1440 Broadway near 40th
In a temporary office leased by Empire blue cross and blue shield
Anyway, that’s what a company spokeswoman told the Associated Press.
Story #3
Write a brief news story for The Freeport News in Maine. You may choose either a straight news lead or more of a feature lead. But this is not a feature story – it is a news story.
You make a telephone check with the state highway patrol and the dispatcher tells you:
Had a strange one around midnight about 20 miles east of Canton. A 20 year old short-order cook employed by Leek’s Café in Freeport was going home when his car went out of control on a bridge over the tracks of Amtrak. Broke through the guardrail, sailed through the air, hit power lines, and then fell to the tracks, landing upside down. 
The guy was unhurt, but it took 15 minutes to get him out of the car. His name is Alan Taylor of Freeport. We booked him for reckless and drunk driving, driving without a license and speeding. A guy following him says he must have hit that bridge at 90. Had a 1986 Chevy that he’d modified.
A witness, who asked not to be named, said it was “kind of miraculous all around. It’s a wonder he wasn’t electrocuted or killed in the fall. If it’d happened a few minutes before, an eastbound train might have hit him and his car.”
