  • 99. �� ��������������������� In the past, the cost of solar energy systems, availability of cheaper power sources and equipment problems caused by scorching temperatures combined to limit solar development. But that may change, as some Arizona electrical utilities are now encouraging consumers to invest in solar power. Arizona Public Service Co. and Tucson Electric Power Co. are offering homeowners incentives to install solar systems. APS began offering 50 percent rebates on solar equipment this year, both on systems bought through APS or from other dealers. Solar power is still two to three times more expensive than traditional electrical generation. The panels take up a lot of space. But officials with the three main Arizona utilities are guessing that solar will become competitive with other sources of electricity in 10 to 20 years. Tom Hansen, vice president and technical adviser for Tucson Electric, says, “Costs are coming down about 5 percent a year. If it keeps dropping, in 20 years it should be competitive.” �� ������������� ���������� Y ears ago, the Papago Indians of Arizona were a healthy, lean people, growing tepary beans, mesquite pods and����������� other traditional crops and desert plants��������� that may have helped regulate their blood����� sugar.

  • 102. graphics 10 COMMANDMENTS 2003 10 Rules for Good Graphics A newspaper will not produce effective graphics if they place the graphics department at the end of their food chain. To achieve quality in graphics and illustration, discussion, planning and data collection must happen early in the story framing process. Graphic people should be an active participant in this process. Artists shouldnt work for reporters and editors, they should work with them. Artists can perform a strategic and important role when telling a story beyond just making information look good. To play a more parallel role they must know how to report graphics or guide reporters and editors to the types of information that can be used to tell the story with graphics. Artists must be plugged into the newsroom. Artists must have a close working relationship with reporters and assignment editors. From these core relationships, an artist can glean graphics opportunities from an insiders understanding of newsroom beats and priorities. Planning is essential. Maestro-type discussions should occur for breaking news and for all advance enterprise graphics. When common goals are identified, member roles and responsibilities established, resources budgeted, etc., successful visual storytelling is the end product. Interaction and communication are key to building effective graphics. When all the players involved in a graphic are engaged in the process, the experience is more satisfying and better end results are achievable. A graphic is information presented clearly, simply and appropriately. Information typically dictates how the graphic should be presented. Whether drawing a simple locator map or a large explanatory graphic, the presentation should be clear and precise. All graphic elements should help facilitate a readers understanding of the information. Graphic information must be accurate and straightforward. We want readers to place great trust in the information found in a graphic. Published graphics with inaccurate information and misleading representations diminish their trust in the entire product, not just the graphics. To quote a local reader: "If I cant trust you to get a little thing like this map right, how can I trust you on the big stuff!" Graphics should be well written and look sophisticated. Good writing is a critical factor in creating relevant, accurate information. The effective combination of tight writing, well thought out design and good integration with the story matter and page design is what leads to a sophisticated end product. There is no one way or right answer to a visual challenge. Of the many possible approaches available, you must pick a functional one, run with it, and later assess what could have been done better. This last process of evaluation is crucial step to improving the graphics product. The graphic production process must be simple, efficient and flexible. A well-oiled process on the front end allows accommodation to changes on the back end. All commandments mentioned above affect the success of this one. 6 NONTRADITIONAL STORY FORMS

An electronic version is available through lotus notes. Sorry, but a computer message sent to a coordinator does not qualify as a request. CAN WE TALK?f This part is critical. The conversation with the coordinator/artist will help clarify the visual process, making sure that you are presenting the most essential information.y ALL OF THE FACTS GUIDELINES CONTINUED When you request a graphic, provide all the information necessary for its completion. Too much information is better than not enough. If your story cites a trend and the accompanying graphic only has information from this year and the last, well, suffice it to say that two numbers do not a trend make. IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE Every bit of information has its source. Make sure you provide the source of yours on the request form. DEADLINES, DEADLINES, DEADLINES! Make your request early, before you even begin to write the story. To create a well thought out visual presentation all the information has to be available to the artist and designer in a timely fashion. Remember, good graphics and design are all about THE CONTENT. When the information comes to them late, the quality suffers. WE ARE SORRY BUT… Sometimes the graphics department needs to say no. The volume of work many times exceeds the manpower available. This is why Number 3 is sooo important. Everything is negotiable. Perhaps the information can be presented in a simpler way, requiring less manpower. Discussing all the options with a coordinator/artist first prevents problems down the road. > TIPS FOR BETTER GRAPHICS 7 NO SURPRISES
