This story, which aired on August 16th, chronicles the recovery process for Saint Joseph Ogden High School after a large fire destroyed the school's bus barn among other things.  The story aired on the 14 month anniversary of the fire.  As a part of his research for the story, reporter Michael Kiser toured the fire site with the school district superintendent and took photos of the rebuilding process.  One of those "after" photos was paired with a "before" photo of the fire damage and posted to the web to give listeners some perspective of the recovery process.  Kiser enterprised this story on his own.

The lead-in to the story is as follows:  "Fourteen months ago today, the Saint Joseph Ogden High School District was dealt a major blow, as a fire destroyed the bus barn and all of its contents.  Now, three new buildings are nearing completion with the school year just about to get underway.  Michael Kiser reports."
