Big Feature Day

holmesToday’s a reasonably big day, as I have three things in the current Independent that just came out. I don’t know that it was necessarily planned to work out that way — different editors for different pieces — it just happened. I’m not complaining.

First up is the one I’m most pleased with, the feature article about my friend and his crew who, essentially, clean up environmental messes. It’s called “The Cleaners.” You can check that out here. I also provided some photos for this one, including the cover photo. While I did a feature before, years ago, this is my first cover photo anywhere. I’m pleased with that.

Next up is an interview with the author of The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes, Zach Dundas. You can check that out here. Zach is a Missoula guy who is now Executive Editor at Portland Monthly. It’s his second book.

Finally, a review of the new record from Heartless Bastards, Restless Ones. They remain one of my favorite bands. Dig that one here.

All in all, not a bad day to see the culmination of many, many days of work!

  1. Great stuff, CLT! Those Cleaners are no joke. I used to work on UST/Superfund litigation and it’s thankless stuff. I wish more people knew about them and what they did, glad you wrote this article. Great photo work, as always. Like you, I’ve never been a huge Holmes fan, but Dundas has me wanting to read that book. Plus, Tunalock? That is freakish slash golden.
