Attribution key for Star Tribune article

| No Comments

Attribution was key to the Star Tribune's article, "New trees to cover bar North Side."

The first three paragraphs explained the hard facts of the story, but from then on, quotes added to the story.

The forth paragraph began with a quote, attributed by the word "said." The person quoted was someone directly affected by the situation.

The article followed this person, Rudo Joplin, creating a narrative effect.

Also attributed was Ralph Sievert, the Park Board's forestry director. His words were paraphrased, so they weren't enclosed in quotation marks.

Each time a quotation was in the article, it led a new paragraph, and usually stood completely on its own.
