    Ben Please change the title

  2. Police was called to Lakeside High School due to a fight between 2 students.

  3. Witnesses indicate seven police cars at the high school because of the incident. The official Delta Newswriters Styleguide defines more than two police vehicles at any location as a “swarm”. Although there is some argument over the proper term depending on the news agency doing the reporting. AP asks its reporters to use the term “gang” of police cars. UPI suggests that the word “conspiration” be used. And the Calypso Louie School of Journalism says the proper term is a “Murder” of police cars. Delta Daily News chooses to use the most neutral of adjectives.

    Ben, the two stories are non-related. Yes, there was fight at the high school, however, it was not related to the Greenville man being attacked and robbed. That is why the previous posts are requesting that you change the title.

  5. No, they are not the same stories. But this isn’t a story about either of them. It is an item about breaking news that is being covered to alert listeners and readers to what is coming. To wit, the two items we were working on at that time. Hence the breaking news banner. The actual individual stories were filed later as details became available. See, and
