NEWSLETTER FOR APRIL 2006
As the newly installed sports editor of the Las Vegas Review-
Journal, permit me to be the first to welcome APSE to the most vibrant and vivacious city in the nation. Other cities may lay claim to this title or that title, but there can be no denying Las Vegas is "The Entertainment Capital of the World." To use boxing parlance, Las Vegas is the undisputed champ.

Key messages from the judges
Glen Crevier: OK, enough with shrinking news holes, travel budget cuts and trying to figure out how we solve the Internet puzzle. Let's put gloom and doom, the anxiety of the Knight-Ridder sale and credential-language issues aside for a moment to talk about a subject we all love: journalism.
Vegas, on a small paper budget
Greg Brownell: This could be one of the least expensive conventions APSE has held in the past several years. You'll have to do some planning and you'll need to avoid the craps table, but this convention is very doable for small newspapers.
APSE is once again offering one-on-one section critiques for sports editors at the Las Vegas convention, June 21-24.
Vegas A&A: Get in the know
Herb Stutz: In its 32 years of convention history, the Associated Press Sports Editors has never experienced a venue like Las Vegas, nor a hotel like the MGM Grand.
Take it easy, Ed: Last go for Storin
Jorge Rojas: You won't have Ed Storin to kick around anymore after this year's APSE convention in Las Vegas. Or more accurately, he won't have you to kick around.
New treasurer, same approach
Michael Peters: Maybe it shouldn't be a surprise that someone who grew up in Williamsport, Pa., the home of Little League baseball, would spend most of his life involved in sports. But Jack Berninger's career path didn't always seem so certain.
Rock the vote! Elect your next officers
A reminder that voting is by newspaper and not individual members. Each dues-paying newspaper gets one vote and that vote usually is cast by the person who runs the sports department.
