Thanks for the good ideas about formatting newspapers for easier reading.  I 
had several on my flash card for the Braillenote but got frustrated trying 
to find the articles themselves so deleted them.  Seems like it would be 
faster to read on Newsline letting the phone system find the article 
beginnings rather than editing the Braille file though it's always good to 
have several ways of getting information.  Just my two cents worth.
