The death of three people at the Minnesota Veterans Home of Minneapolis has prompted Gov. Pawelenty to order the Department of Health to monitor the area on a daily basis.
The Pioneer Press and Star Tribune both find two different stories in this article.
The Star Tribune begins the lede with the three deaths and focuses more on that, while the Pioneer Press focuses more on the actions that will be taken due to the three deaths and the poor conditions of the home.
I couldn't find any earlier articles written on this issue at either paper, so I have to believe that the deaths are most important, but the informationt on future preventative actions is also necassary.
I think the lead should begin like the Star Tribune's with the deaths being at the top, however, their lead is more jumbled and confusing than the Pioneer Press's lede. It has two time phrases i.e. Tuesday and last month and begins with "State inspectors said..." and then gets into the article.
They also cover themselves by listing all the possibilities of the deaths at the beginning rather than just stating that there were three deaths.
