Samantha O’Connor’s adventure was a bit more picturesque as she took us all to the clear waters of the Fall River.

It wasn’t a simple afternoon of fly fishing – it was to showcase a program called Tight Blue Lines, which helps first responders decompress and connect with nature.

Of course, Sam and Allen didn’t work on those two stories alone.

Central Oregon Daily News Photojournalist Steve Kaufmann was the talented photographer, editor and co-storyteller for both stories.

The winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony on June 5th.
