  • What goes down must come up
    There is a line of T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase "Embrace the Hill." For the creator, a runner and mom, the phrase is about life and running.

Shooter's Comments: I went to a press conference about GM's Fort Wayne assembly plant becoming the automaker's first U.S. Landfill-Free Assembly Plant. I gathered audio during the press conference and then had the opportunity to see a few recycling processes at the plant.

I accomplished a new skill today while covering this assignment. I held the video camera in one hand and filmed the cardboard falling out of the baler while shooting this photo for the newspaper at the same moment.
