Knight in shining armor Stephanie Hollingsworth, 20, who works in the Lodi News-Sentinel mailroom, assembled an impressive 80-pound suit of chainmail.

She spooled electric fencing wire around a metal dowel to form a long spring, which she then clipped into small rings and fastened together to form mail.

    Not that it has anything to do with this particular article and Mr. Birch has every right to void it but perhaps some can relate.
    I always figured the best thing you can do for a homeless person was to give them a shirt and tie. Anything else would be useless.

    The difference between pluses and minuses. Stephanie Hollingsworth gave of herself. It diserved giving back and moving forward. I think it would be a great first date garmet myself (as a father).

    Todd that is completely uncalled for and you should apologize. Medieval games have been going on for as long as I can remember. We used to do it in College. We had Swords, Lances & the Jousting Tournaments were great. In 30 years I have not seen anyone using drugs at these events. I am pretty sure you would be banned if you did.

    Why was my commit removed?
    What policy was it in violation of?
    This is the second time this has happened!

    Heavy Metal Band? Is it bullet proof ? Kevlar's better. Does it have a triple prong plug at the bottom? - ZAP! You light up my life. Bit Heavy ? - What a drag. Custom built dress complete with washing instructions and warnings on the tag. (Remove dress BEFORE jumping in river)
    WOW - I've never seen a hobby quite like that before. Suppose that is part of what the thrill of the Highland Games are about. - Good job. - Hope the horse can handle it.
