Archaeologists unearth 'ancient' photos

Posted Thursday, April 7, 2011, at 9:01 AM

Jacob Stanton delivers his remarks at the 2010 Marshall High School graduation ceremonies.
It's been a while since I reminded everyone why my blog is called "Safety Net."

It's because stories -- even important stories -- fall through the cracks all the time. If something doesn't get written up within a day or two of the event, new deadlines loom and demand attention. And the more time passes, the less likely the neglected story will see the light of day.

That doesn't mean the story should languish forever (though some, to date, have), so Safety Net is intended to catch those stories and bring them back to the surface. Everyone who's seen my desk and computer directories knows that "back to the surface" is not a metaphor.

Today's resurrection is the photo gallery from Marshall High School graduation ceremonies in 2010.

After sending a team of archaeologists to seek the long-lost graduation images, I'm happy to announce that we have succeeded in recovering the photo collection.

I'm very sorry it didn't get published on time, and I've been reminded occasionally about the oversight from people who want to revisit the event. They've been kinder about it than I deserve, I'm afraid.

At long last, it's here.


I promise to do better this year!
