IN PRODUCTION....The May 22, 2011 F-5 tornado in Joplin, Missouri brought horror and six miles of destruction through the Southwest Missouri town. Lives have been lost, and lives have been changed.

The Joplin Globe has reported every step. Every story. Every obituary, on one recent day, four full pages of obituaries. Every miracle large and small. That is what community newspapers do, but for The Globe, there were special challenges. Of The Globe's 117 employees, about one-fourth lost their homes. In The Globe newsroom, about one-third of the 27 news staffers lost their residences -- and page designer Bruce Baillie, age 56, was killed by the tornado.

In the midst of such overwhelming losses, The Globe staff began reporting for work minutes after the twister struck. The Missouri Press Association is now producing a documentary film about the work of The Joplin Globe's staff in fulfilling the mission of community newspapers: serving their communities.
