Community journalism

Award-winning feature article

I so enjoyed writing this article. The inspiration was from a Facebook post. A friend shared photos her father took long before she was born. It happened that I had known her parents. The article about Bernie Dodd’s photos was published in The Bakersfield Californian and the Tehachapi News and went on to win the Best Feature Story (Weeklies) award in the 2022 George F. Gruner journalism awards program.
