Rockland — Five Rockland District Middle School students visited the offices of Courier Publications Dec. 16 to learn more about how newspapers and media sites operate.

The students were part of an after-school program organized by Youthlinks called "Magazine Mania." They were chaperoned by Youthlinks Program Manager Hannah Magnusson and volunteer Judy Kov Block.

During the tour they learned about newspapers and online news sites. They toured the advertising, news and graphic design departments and talked to reporters, sales people, designers and editors.

I hope the children, and maybe also the teacher, learned that "media" is a plural, not a singular noun.  The singular is "medium".  It is a Latin word..
