- Melissa Nann Burke's narrative of a man who lost his voice to a stroke but got it back;
- Jeff Frantz's narrative about a woman who waited decades to find out what really happened to her brother in World War II;
- Frantz's profile of a boy who lost parts of four limbs to an infection and who now lobbies on behalf of amputees;
- Paul Kuehnel's photo story of that boy;
- Kate Penn's Gettysburg soldier portraits;
- Jim Seip's tale of a great William Penn swimmer; and
- Tom Joyce's story about how Lyme disease and its diagnosis -- or misdiagnosis -- is a growing problem.
The Keystones also recognized YDR people for investigative reporting, online reporting and features, editorials, design, graphic/photo illustration, headline writing, niche publications, special projects and series. So much so that, by my count, 22 staffers' names appear on the list.
I think that's fantastic -- maybe the best news coming out of the awards. Congratulations to all.
