NEWSLETTER FOR FEBRUARY 2005

newsletter cover
  To vote, or not to vote
This is the question: Is it nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of angry fans and coaches, or to avoid the issue of polls and awards altogether? Jim Cnockaert of the King County (Wash.) Journal and Mike Persinger of the Charlotte Observer taking differing views.

APSE's role: Provide a roadmap for discussion
Jerry Micco: APSE should not be in the business of telling members what they can or cannot do when it comes to being involved in polls, award voting.

Yes: Polls can be a good discussion point
Jim Cnockaert: As the final weeks of the 2004 college football season cranked down, Idaho Statesman sports editor Mike Prater became more and more uncomfortable with his position as an Associated Press Top 25 poll voter. He wasn't the only voter who felt that way.

No: Making the news not part of our business
Mike Persinger: Should newspapers allow their writers to vote? Some, like the Los Angeles Times, do but are considering a ban.

A team effort
Peter Madrid: Newspapers and television stations are combining resources to break local and national news. But ownership of the stories remains an issue.

Sports' center
Scott Reinardy: ESPN clearly has had a profound influence on sports television. It's also clear that the influence extends to newspapers.

Easy access
Greg Brownell: Your reporter has to get into the venue before he or she can cover the event. The process doesn't have to be daunting.

Region reports
A look at APSE region activity.

Reporting for duty
John Johnson: Scott Wilson covers Butte Community College sports for the Chico Enterprise-Record. But he's always had other ambitions and wanted to consider other career options. That's one of the reasons he joined the Army National Guard two years ago.

A new leader, same direction
A Q&A with Nick Moschella, the new sports editor of The Palm Beach Post.

With NHL on ice, papers are shuffling resources
Jason Carris: While North American hockey fans have found alternative forms of entertainment, newsrooms in hockey towns have been dealing with lockout issues of their own, including redistribution of resources, travel budgets and newshole.
