As a further example of using RSS feeds in here is a story that just came in from a subscription on the word “emmitsburg”

“Floyd Lee encouraged youngsters by telling them about his growing up in a poor family and working his way out of poverty through education.

“It all began in Emmitsburg, Md., in a segregated Catholic school,” Lee wrote in a printed program celebrating his retirement in 1995. “There were 12 black students from first to eighth grade in the same classroom.”

He and his five siblings were raised by their mother and maternal grandfather on a farm in Emmitsburg. Lee’s father was absent for the most part, wandering in and out of their lives.

The kids walked along the railroad tracks, looking for pieces of coal to heat their home. They often ate meals at a Sisters of Charity convent.”
