Summertime… and the modeling was easy. For the cover of apparel and fashion industry trade magazine Earnshaw’s, Gap Kids, Little MisMatched and many more.


Per a wonderful write-up in the Charlotte Observer, here’s how it has gone so far in 2014 for mother of four Terri Murray and her children ages two through nine.

McClatchy Papers Go Digital

The Daily News and the Bee introduced digital versions in October, while the other papers debuted in mid-November.

More McClatchy papers, like The Kansas City Star and The Miami Herald will be available on the Kindle soon, the company said.

The Kindle version allows readers to gain portable access to these local papers nationwide, so it is possible it will increase readership. But the nagging media question remains: why pay for digital content you can get it online for free?
