People often ask me how to get sports news in the newspaper. Well, it's really pretty easy.

Here's what we need to know:

If it's an upcoming event, send us the name of the event, the date and time it will be held, where it's going to happen and who to contact for information.

That's the bare minimum, but more information is always good. Tell us a little bit about the event, like how old it is. If it is a charitable event, tell us who it will benefit. If there is a fee, what will people get for their money?

The same rules apply if the event has already occurred and you want to let us know how your favorite athlete did. Give us as much information as you can.

When sending photographs, please send us clear, high-resolution pics. Digital is preferred because we can't guarantee that hard copies will be returned.

Where do you send your sports news? The best place is sports@galvnews.com. Items sent their will automatically be forwarded to my attention. And, since I am a pack rat, the notes probably will never be deleted.

News can also be called into the sports desk. The number is 409-683-5242. Leave a good, clear message at the prompt.

For those who still like the old ways, our postal mail address is:

Sports Department

Galveston County Daily News

7800 Emmett F. Lowry Expressway

Texas City, TX 77591

So, send us your sports news and we'll do the best we can to get it published.
