TERRY JENSON, Publisher of the Clark’s Crossing Gazette in Warman, SK, jumps in with the cover photo from the Gazette’s latest issue. Terry’s note and Ed’s comments below the photo.
FROM TERRY: I’m attaching a copy of our front page that appears in mailboxes tomorrow. Here’s the context of the story: Warman is a city of nearly 7,500 people and is a fairly tight-knit community where people still wave at strangers driving past them. On Sunday evening around dinnertime, a service station in town was robbed by a machete-wielding bad guy. The photographer (yours truly) arrived on scene as police were beginning to secure and enter the building. Darkness began to fall and I waited. I waited some more. I already had the standard police cars with lights flashing next to the store and officers milling about, but I waited a little while longer and it paid off in spades, I think. About 90 minutes into the whole ordeal, the K-9 unit showed up and that’s when I was able to capture this shot of the dog going to work looking for the suspect. I hope you enjoy it!
FROM ED: Thanks for sharing this with us, Terry. I like the photo a lot. It’s certainly better than another pic of a police cruiser. Proof that patience often pays. Nice pic!
