The Behenna project
Did you see our Mother’s Day story by Jenni Carlson in Sunday’s newspaper about Vicki Behenna and her battle to free her son from federal prison? I hope you also had a chance to visit the website for the project.

With each digital presentation, we are trying something a little bit different, but the focus is always on telling a story. In this case, newsroom developer Nick Tankersley worked closely with designer Bill Bootz to present the story that was told by Jenni Carlson, illustrated by photojournalist Sarah Phipps, produced for video by Paige Lessley, edited by sports editor Mike Sherman and copy edited by Tom Maupin.
