It's been a whirlwind week here in the offices of the Addison Independent. Late last week, half of our news and advertising staff headed down to Boston for the New England Newspaper and Press Association annual conference for two days of sessions on the newspaper industry, social media, and the future of journalism, plus some delicious Thai food.
Though we headed home with little but road snacks in our pockets, our colleague Lee Kahrs of the Brandon Reporter passed on the news of our ten prizes in the weekly 2 (circulation of 5,001 to 10,000) category, among them first place for general excellence. Lee also snagged a first place prize for business and reporting, and the Reporter placed third for its "Local Flavor" editorial supplement.
So, from all of us at the most generally excellent weekly class two in New England, thanks for all the support we get from our community, and here's to another great year of local news and advertising!
