Local angle

Local angle: A steady subject in stories my rexblog google hacks deliver me involve someone in a small town getting featured in a national magazine. It happens so often, that I’ve tried to design the searches to kick those out. However, once in a while, a classic shows up that displays how far a newspaper will go to localize such a story. Here’s one of the best of that genre, a story about a Centre (Kentucky) College co-ed volleyball player who’s on the cover of Cosmo. How is that a local story in Boston? Her boyfriend goes to college at Dartmouth. (Wait, come to think of it, the rexblog has a local angle – my niece (if that is the title of the girl who marries your nephew) played volleyball at Dartmouth.)
