Recent centerpieces

Here’s a sampling of some weekend work. The first was a Saturday centerpiece for a new series I suggested called Dispatches. It’s an occasional feature the reporting staff will do on relatively small stories in the community. It’s a chance for us to take a more literary approach to our writing. I’m happy with my first piece about a woman who opened a thrift store in a last-ditch effort to stay out of foreclosure.

The next two pieces were live assignments, which I tried to write with a more creative lead. I covered the opening of a community garden and a volunteer day at the local YMCA, which was damaged in a major fire last month. Our paywall won’t let you read those stellar leads, but if you’re curious you can zoom in on the pics!

Saturday A!
