    To answer a couple of commonly asked questions: Yes, the News Service is open for business during the summer. Feel to send me stories anytime — I’ll be around for much of the break. And, yes, there will be an occasional “Clips of the Week” note during the summer, so please keep sending those links as you make news in the coming weeks.

    Congrats to all on a semester to remember – and best of luck on your internships!

    Cheers,
    Jere
