In a story about the jail locks, reporters found a major issue at the jail that had been known by the sheriff for years. In the story on day care, the reporter found that though parents could learn whether their children's centers had code violations but couldn't find out if anything had been done about them. In the story about information technology bids, the reporter revealed the scope of the proposed handover of the state's contracts, what it would cost and how many employees might be affected-- all despite official secrecy. And a little-known loophole in state law may be closed as a result of the story about dog attacks.
