Re­porter se­lects aboiteau cov­er­age as top story of 2018

Valley Journal Advertiser - - COVER STORY - BY COLIN CHISHOLM HANTSPORT

res­i­dents who watch with fear as the tide­wa­ter erodes the bank at the edge of their prop­erty, shared their story in hope of be­ing a part of the so­lu­tion.

Telling th­ese per­sonal sto­ries el­e­vates the news to some­thing more than just an emo­tion­less pol­ished state­ment pre­pared for mass cir­cu­la­tion. Telling th­ese sto­ries gives peo­ple a win­dow into how th­ese things are di­rectly af­fect­ing the peo­ple who call our com­mu­ni­ties home – and that’s what lo­cal news is all about.
