Strong work in South Carolina

The Beaufort Gazette sprung into action to give its readers a complete report from the tragic scene when a jet flown by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels team crashed Saturday and killed the pilot during an airshow in South Carolina.

SND member Dave Lemery at The Gazette posted some of the work at NewsPageDesigner and explained how the relatively small newspaper reacted to the big day: "It's not often (if ever) that Beaufort becomes the center of the news world, but I think we rose to the occasion."

The Gazette, which the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association lists as having a circulation of 12,126 daily, had all the right instincts in its Sunday news coverage, including a well-told main story, the best photography it could make from a heavily controlled military scene and a graphic that did its part to explain what went wrong.

Kudos to Lemery, Nicole Eure and Jes Spivak at The Gazette for solid storytelling on such a sad day.

Dave and Jes are good friends who used to do great work at The Times of Northwest Indiana before heading to Low Country. Congrats to them and the Gazette for some really, really nice breaking news work!
