Many of the stories told in the Springfield News-Sun and on springfieldnewssun.com were conveyed to our audience through the work of News-Sun Photographer Bill Lackey.

From a devastating house fire in Moorefield Twp., to patriotic salutes at the Enon Fourth of July Parade, the pain of a family reeling from the loss of a loved one in the Oregon District mass shooting, to all the fun that comes with the Clark County Fair, these photos captured important moments around the Clark County region in 2019.
