Hiding your best stories from the world

So The Charleston Gazette, a small newspaper in West Virginia, won an IRE award for its investigative series about mine safety.

After years of covering the coal industry, [reporter Ken Ward, Jr.] offers readers an unparalleled portrait of the dangers inside mines and the breakdowns of regulation that made 2006 a deadly year. Using documents and data analysis, this Small Newspapers category winner detailed lax safety procedures, inferior training, poor equipment maintenance and other problems that contributed to deaths at Sago and other mines.

Sounds interesting. I went to their Web site and tried to find it. Searched in the current stories. Searched in the archives. Tried mine safety, “mine safety” and “Ken Ward.” No luck.

And — dare I ask — was there any online package for this series?

Oh, of course — “Beyond Sago.’ Why didn’t I think of that? Silly me! :0

Thank you!
