Sometimes even when I get what I ask, it's still not enough.
I asked for three pages for today's edition, and I got them. Still, I didn't have room for two stories which really needed to be put into today's edition.
One of those stories was about the final two days of the Eastern Oklahoma State College Classic, while the other one was Carl Albert correspondent Mark Couch's story about Friday night's CASC home games against Coffeyville, Kan. I'm planning on putting these stories in Wednesday's edition.
