Local herosThis being Memorial Day, I thought I’d share the PDF version from this day in 2007. This was without question, the biggest and best play I ever got for a photo I’d taken at the Trib, and that is saying something, because gave lots of space to good photography. Six columns above fully about the fold just doesn’t happen in newspapers, and to my knowledge, it only happened once during my years at the Trib, which is what made it such a powerful tribute to our local fallen heroes.
