The Lammers site pollution investigation has finally seen the light of day. Beavercreek is running it as a 3-part series on Thursdays, starting yesterday. Xenia, Fairborn and Bellbrook are running it as a 3-part series on Fridays starting today. Wilmington is running it as a 2-part series, today and Saturday.

(Since this post was first written, I have added links to the final parts in the series. Otherwise this post is unchanged.)

Part I and Part II made an appearance on the web for Xenia. Part III didn’t make it there for whatever reason. Here are Xenia’s PDFs of the story: Part I, Part II and Part III.

Wilmington didn’t place it online, but here are their two PDFs: Part I and Part II.

If you’re from a big paper, you might find it odd that I just give out the PDFs like that. Don’t worry — all these papers are owned by Brown Publishing, and they offer the PDFs for free to everyone, every morning on their websites.

I don’t think any of these papers ended up using my multimedia online, at least as of yet. But here are links to that stuff:

A video of the 1969 chemical fire narrated by a man who witnessed it. Maybe it impacted him, because he’s now Battalion Chief at Beavercreek Fire Department.

A slideshow of still photos showing what the site looks like now.

A TV-news style report that I produced for journalism class with the help of a talented videographer and editor friend, Chris Powers.

On an unrelated note, today is my 23rd birthday. Maybe that’s a good sign, since my first-place editorial was also published on a birthday — my 21st.
