Though this article is about dog poop, and I did not give it the best rating, it is relevant to the people of the bay area. This is something that people who live in this area of read the Bay Citizen would be interested in because it's possible that something like this has happened to them. This is obviously much different from a national news article, but instead is an article written strictly for bay area residents who also find this to be a problem. In that case, it is relevant to those people and I would recommend this story to them.

The topic of this story would only have a newsworthy chance in a hyperlocal news source. Proximity and impact are also main news values within hyperlocal news. The focus of this story was to find out why there was dog poop on the roofs. The relevance of this story is focused more towards the local community.

While this article is light hearted and entertaining to read, it does not demonstrate any other elements of good journalism. The article is hyper local in that it would most likely only appeal to a Bay Area reader being of such a specific and offbeat topic. While the story is very original, it definitely has a narrow audience.
