Oct. 5 was the first day that fifth graders in Corey Johnson's class at Salem Elementary participated in Areawide Media's Newspapers in Education program, and they were a buzz with highlighters in use and lots of questions. The program is sponsored by area businesses and allows for 545 students in the area to receive a copy of their local newspaper each week in an effort to inform, enlighten and entertain the next generation of newspaper readers.
