I apologize for that problem. For some reason, the pay wall was not there when I viewed the web page from my home computer. It might have been treated as open access because I searched used the link given me by Google News when I searched for "A one-man fossil rescue mission." However, when I used the link directly, I also ran into a paywall. I should have tried that before posting the link.

 

The fossils being rescued are mostly clusters of dinosaur eggs.

I was able to access the below article through Goggle News. However, when I tried access it again using just the URL, I ran into the paywall.
