Are you working on your marriage?

What have you done for your marriage today?

This question is at the heart of a new media campaign being started by the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference.

Radio and TV spots will raise the question, hoping to draw couples to “Web materials”: that “highlight the value of marriage” and provide support for couples.


Gary Stern

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
