Newspapers of the Year: Take a bow
Bragging rights aside, the SNA Newspapers of the Year for
non-daily publications with circulation over 37,500 have
much to crow about.
Judges from Chicago’s Loyola University Journalism
Department bestowed high praise on the selection of twenty-
two newspapers in the annual NOY contest and were espe-
cially impressed at the deep involvement in the investigative
journalism underway at local newspapers.
SNA President Nancy Lane is not surprised by the many praise-
worthy newspapers which competed in the contest.
“Suburban and community newspapers remain vibrant
and well-respected in the communities they serve, primarily
because of their deep and caring coverage of local news and
events. I am exceedingly proud to represent this segment
of our industry and commend all of the hard-working and
dedicated employees who make the daily miracle a reality
in their towns,” said Lane.
In this installment of our Newspapers of the Year series,
we are spotlighting the winners in Class D, for non-daily
newspapers with circulation over 37,500.
Look for additional winners in future issues.

TransCanada wants to build on the Ford-owned lands
of 1500 Royal Windsor Dr.
