NEWSLETTER FOR AUGUST 2006

convention
successful

The 2006 Convention in Las Vegas was a huge success, with well-received workshops and general sessions. And unlike the saying, the knowledge and ideas from this convention will not stay in Vegas.
Click here to view a larger version of the newsletter cover.

A need for diversity – and ads
Jim Jenks: In the few weeks since taking over as president of APSE, it has become very clear as to what my priorities need to be for the upcoming year.

An organization for big and small
Larry Vaught: I already miss Greg Brownell.

Olympic credentials
Don't forget the U.S. Olympic Committee is accepting credential requests for the 2008 Games in Beijing through Sept. 1.

Giving away the candy store
Chet Fussman: Oscar Goodman is a politician, mob lawyer, actor and admitted degenerate sports gambler.

Blog on!
Bill Bradley: Don't be afraid to let beat writers have opinions online, panelists say.

Keep prep content original, expansive
Jeff Krupshaw: Where do you start when you decide you want to really go online with preps?

Hits keep coming for online chats
Bryce Miller: Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, assistant managing editor at the Washington Post, illustrated the changing challenges of newspapering in an ever-accelerating electronic age.

One great photo better than several good ones
Russ Goodall: If Michael Whitley ever needs to find a new career, he might give the Dodgers a call. He would make a terrific pinch hitter.

This bulldog has bite when it comes to open records
Barry Vigoda: Excuses and refusals are simply welcome challenges for David Milliron.

You want action? These guys live it
Gary Robinson: Value exists all over the landscape. Advice from financial planners? Stock market analysts? Bond experts? No. That was the message from the men who make their livings making the betting lines on sporting events, or reporting on them.

Too good to be true?
Steve Quintana: Rick Rodriguez has been executive editor of the Sacramento Bee for less than 10 years, but he's already had to deal with several high-profile plagiarism and fabrication incidents.

Standard approaches aren't always the write stuff
James Walker: There will always be a place for traditional sports writing, but there are non-traditional approaches and ideas that can make newspaper stories more inviting and easier for the reader to digest.

An extraordinary Joe
Dale Phelps: Much of this year's APSE convention was spent considering the future and how our business is changing in an Internet-connected world.

Ready to rumble
Joe Sullivan: The only things missing were a bombastic appearance by Don King, followed by Mike Tyson and Mitch "Blood" Green grappling on stage trying to get to each other in a headlock.

Working with people and stories
Annette Vazquez: Every story that resonates with an audience boils down to one thing: communication.

It's up to you to be creative
Ron Fritz: The subject was "Making Enterprise Happen." It could easily have been titled "Making Good Sections Great."

Are we making most of what we've got?
Larry Vaught: The disappearing access facing sports staffs at all levels can sometimes be a matter of perspective. Access is a topic we are hearing a lot about now and it goes beyond the professional level.

Leaders say newspapers still on solid footing
Larry Yant: The intent was to find out more about the "State of Our Business," and the three industry leaders who addressed sports editors painted a positive picture – give or take the occasional hand grenade being tossed into the newsroom.

How journalism persevered in the shadow of Katrina
Jerry Kane: While most newspapers are grasping on to the Internet, the New Orleans Times-Picayune hung on to it for dear life.

Herb's session review
Herb Stutz: The sale of Knight Ridder was less than a week away, a day marked by thousands of people in the newspaper industry seeing their paychecks signed by a new employer. So, almost predictably, the best-attended, best-rated session at the 33rd annual APSE Convention at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Hotel was "The State of Our Business."

On the move
Toby Carrig: A region-by-region look at personnel moves.
