This story is the product of months of research, reporting and traveling. I stumbled across a news article about a community called Hoback Ranches in rural Wyoming. A wildfire had recently devastated the area, leaving many people, some of whom were uninsured, without a home. Since the fire didn't meet standards for FEMA assistance, residents had to rebuild by hand — and the threat of the oncoming Wyoming winter loomed in the meantime. The photo above is one of the residents, Marlene Beebe, who struggles with severe bipolar disorder and lost her life's work when her house burned.View Post

During my time as the Norman city beat reporter, I met the leader of an organization called Aspie Adults of Oklahoma, a social group for adults on the autism spectrum. I attended a meeting and wrote this feature about the challenges — and benefits — of being an adult with autism. At the request of the group, I didn't use "people-first" language when writing this story.
