The Times-Reporter used an image of a salt barn in its centerpiece. The Jon Baker story is about how the mild Ohio winter has left a local surplus of road salt normally used to melt snow and ice.
The shape of the dome lends itself nicely to a symmetrical package — headline on the left, story on the right.
That image gets some competition from that shallow horizontal photo at the bottom. I would have argued for a smaller image down there. I don't want to knock Jim Cummings' photo, but it's competing for attention with the centerpiece image. My suggestion: downsize that photo at the bottom.
Otherwise, a nice page!
