comment

The National Newspaper Association has awarded New Times first place for environmental reporting in its Better Newspaper Contest.

Kathy Johnston’s Oct. 30 story “Shut down for speaking up” earned the honor in the category of non-daily newspapers with circulations greater than 6,000. The story focused on Colleen Enk, an opponent of proposed sand mining in the Salinas River, who was served with a lawsuit to quell her dissent.

New Times also received Honorable Mention in the Serious Column category for the Shredder column “They turned back” (Dec. 11), on the hazing death of Cal Poly student Carson Starkey.
