A bad moment reported well

I think the local coverage is the strongest part in the News and Record machine. A house burned down on Haw River Road between Oak Ridge and Stokesdale yesterday. Nothing particularly remarkable about that, but Tina Firesheets's reporting proves there's more to it than that. The current owner of the 96-year old farmhouse was born there so was his neighbor witnessing the house's end. Firesheets gets some good quotes from them and others on the scene providing a freeze frame of a little slower time in Guilford County. The editorial page is another story, but I better dismiss journalism 101 on that note.
