There’s not much tennis in this book. With this cast, there isn’t room. Liesel, the matriarch, is a German-born writer.

Alden Woods The Republic | azcentral.com Published 5:03 p.m. UTC Jun 13, 2018 Suzette Brewer was in the heart of her dream job. The freelance journalist had just finished her latest story for Indian Country Today’s glossy magazine. Her 3,500-word history of the American chestnut was scheduled to appear in the September 2017 issue, and already she was planning her next few months of work. Tribal lands overflowed with stories few other publications could find. Brewer, a member of the Cherokee Nation, tried to sort through them all. She gravitated toward Supreme Court cases and federal legal battles that could highlight Native issues. Few Native journalists could match her access to the courts. Few outlets could match Indian Country Today's influence. Then the editor called. Indian Country Today, he told her, was shutting down. “So what does this mean, exactly?” Brewer recalled asking, though she already knew the answer: Dozens … [Read more...] about ‘Our New York Times’: Premier tribal news outlet relaunches, still faces old hurdles

By Kristine Phillips, The Washington Post Pictures of Rebecca Zeni during her younger years showed her with flawless skin, well-defined eyebrows and long, thick lashes. Her hair, parted in the middle, was neatly tied with a bow behind her ear.Her beauty could capture a room, her daughter said, but she was more than just a beautiful face. She was a modern-day woman of the 1940s and 1950s, headstrong, career-oriented and hard-working, said Mike Prieto, a lawyer representing Zeni's family. At a time when women were expected to marry young and have children, the small-town girl from North Carolina moved to Norfolk after high school to work at the naval base there, her daughter, Pamela Puryear, said. She later became a model in New York City and worked as an assistant for CBS News's Mike Wallace before she married and became a stay-at-home mother."Her life just became exciting," Puryear said. "She thought in her mind that everybody's life is just like this."But the once-vibrant … [Read more...] about She modeled in New York and worked for the Navy.
