This section is incomplete but eventually will chronicle project progress as reported/recorded in the print media. A goal will be to link to web-based versions of all past newspaper pieces - thus ensuring their ongoing availability. These offerings have helped publicize our work in an admittedly "old-fashioned/traditional" way. The authors of these articles are journalists and not CASHP staff members.
