For two years, through the photography of Brian Plonka and the writing of James Hagengruber, Spokesman-Review readers followed the journey of twins Robert and Matt Shipp from high school in North Idaho to Marine boot camp to the Middle East.
Robert and Matt Shipp take in the late afternoon scenery before their welcome home party at the family restaurant at Hauser Lake, Idaho, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2006. The boys wore their uniforms to the party. In a few days the Marines will return to Camp Pendleton and begin their advanced training for the challenges ahead in defending our country.

Solo the trumpeter swan that's been returning to Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge for at least three and possibly four decades, takes off from Winslow Pond after returning to the refuge on Jan. 25, 2010, as soon as enough open water was free of ice for him to come back. This time he returned with the mate he found in 2009 and three of the four cygnets they produced that spring. Refuge biologists do not know where the swans spent the ice-up portion of the winter.
