What we are working on: April 29

Here’s a look at our news budget at this hour for tomorrow’s paper. It also reflects much of what you’ll see on our website during the day.

Did you see any of the smoke from the fire in York’s Salem Square neighborhood last night? What do you think the punishment should be for those who set fire to the three homes, given that they were already scheduled to be demolished?

What questions do you have about stories we’re working on, or about the budget form itself? Do you know of something we should be covering that you don’t see on the budget? Let us know by commenting here. And, check out our Google+ page for more conversation about how we’re covering the news.
