Call it an early holiday present. Or, maybe more accurately, a sneak peek.
The above photograph comes from a story reporter Aaron Hagen and I are working on. Look for the full story to appear in the Daily Globe after Christmas and before New Year’s.
I won’t say much more, other than that Hagen and I are taking a look at aviation.
Talking with Roger Spofford, I learned that, yes, you can spot loose powerline bolts while flying in an aircraft.
This tidbit is a great example of why I find journalism fascinating.
When journalists push out to lesser-known places in the community, you meet people. You hear about their jobs and their families.
Roger and his small single-seat aircraft wasn’t in some exotic locale. He was right around the corner, going about his day.
There is value in learning about far-away people and places. But so too is there value in the local.
