Hey, look what we did! We won two awards in the New England Newspaper and Press Association journalism competition. Jean Perry (you remember Jean, right?) and I won for our story on the appointment of Wendy Graves as Interim Town Administrator. Yeah, I know, let’s just drop that, right? But, hey, the awards go back a year. And we did some good, solid reporting on that one.
Our other award is for a photo that Margie Green Joseph took. I bet you remember it. It’s the pic of the kiteboarder on a warm day in October. He’s up in the air, the sun is setting, the water is splashing and sparkling. It’s dazzling. Quite the shot. See page 7 for those.
I have to say it’s nice to be recognized by one’s peers. Yeah, I know you guys love us (except for those who don’t), but, it’s cool when people in the biz recognize the hard work that goes into this little free sheet.
Speaking of which…this week was a killer. I was all over the place like doggie doo-doo.
You’ll have to thumb through to see what’s in here. I’m going to miss my deadline if I don’t wrap this up.
But I will mention on story. See page 6 for a quick, fun piece on the 70th anniversary celebration of Jim and Dolores Leal. Yup, 70 years.
We know the Leals from all kinds of stuff they’re involved in around here. Mostly, Jimmy is the veterans guy. They both attend all the fun events, so I know you’ve seen them there.
Congratulations to them. And thank you for inviting me to your shindig. I had a blast.
Yeah…tough gig this job, huh?
Okay, that’s it. The printer is waiting with bated breath. Please be sure to note who our advertisers are so you can tell them you saw their ads in the Neighb News. Until next week then…see ya,
Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the Heroes!
