For most of us, social media is a part of our every day lives- at work, home or both. But a lot of people are still figuring out when to use it and how. This is especially true in high school, where many teachers are still unsure of how it fits in the classroom.
Student athletes in Springfield will soon have a new and vastly improved playing field. A number of organizations are helping the city purchase its first AstroTurf field, which will be built next summer.

And after a year of wet and penetrating weather, it's in rough shape, with treacherous holes and a muddy surface. Tafari Douglas is a freshman at Central High who plays varsity soccer. He says an Astroturf field will boost morale, and might improve his performance.
