NEWSLETTER FOR AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2007

Toby Carrig: With Roger Clemens on the mound and a lineup including Josh Crutchmer, Greg Bowers, Derek Samson and Doug Tucker, the APSE Great Plains Region meeting July 23 in Kansas City was a winner. (Sept. 30)


Joe Sullivan: The APSE Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions will be conducting co-fall meetings at the "new" New York Times Building on Monday, Nov. 12, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Sept. 30)


News from the Northwest regions, including the Casper Star-Tribune, The Daily News in Longview, Wash., the Register-Guard and the Spokane Spokesman-Review(Sept. 25)


Reports from the Southeast and West regions. (Sept. 22)


Tom Jolly: At a moment like this, direct seems best: Dave Anderson is retiring from regular column writing, effective Sunday. Fortunately for us, that does not mean he will stop writing his column altogether. (Sept. 17)


Joe Sullivan: Boston is putting in a bid to host the 2011 APSE convention. APSE's executive committee will have to approve the site at the winter meetings in Orlando in February. Boston hosted the 1990 convention and it ranked as one of best attended at that time. (Sept. 13)


Ted Green: When the Indianapolis Colts won the Super Bowl in February, it seemed like overnight doubts about whether Peyton Manning could ever "Win the Big One" were replaced by predictions that he'd one day be considered among the greatest quarterbacks ever – perhaps the greatest. The Indianapolis Star decided to strike while its star was hot. (Sept. 12)


John Cherwa: The tempest that was the National Football League photo vest controversy seems to have quieted with neither side claiming victory nor defeat. And to figure out how it turned out you have to go to the tape. Literally. (Aug. 22)


Jerry Micco: Basically, we approached the U.S. Open like we do with all our big events: Don't leave any bullets in the gun when you're finished. And we didn't. We started writing stories in February on the Open and had an interactive course map up by April on our Website. (Aug. 16)


Toby Carrig: James Lefko was given a new title last month, but not much has changed in the sports department of The Indianapolis Star. Lefko now is the senior editor for sports at The Star. Plus other news from seven of the 10 regions. (Aug. 15)


Doug Roberson: Reports from six of the 10 regions, including several items from the Great Plains, Northeast and West regions. (Aug. 14)


Glenn Schwarz: We planned on running one All-Star special section and three expanded sections. But thanks to unexpectedly robust ad support, we ran two stand-alone sections and two expanded – 40 pages total. The 14-page special the day before the game focused on the Bay Area's and Giants' rich All-Star history, featuring columnist Bruce Jenkins' all-time team of players raised in the area. The game-day preview special ran 12 pages, the postgame report covered 10 pages. (Aug. 13)


Bill Speros: The Pepsi 400 roared into Daytona International Speedway on July 7. The race coverage presented us with several challenges – including a night start and the looming possibility of rain. The race has been rain delayed several times in recent years so we had to make contingency plans with several pre-formatted pages and options to trim space and shift it to the next day's paper if the race was delayed a day. (Aug. 12)


Larry Vaught: Because our summer convention in St. Louis seemed to be such a hit with small paper editors, I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me that left feeling enthused with what I had learned and grateful that outgoing president Jim Jenks and others had gone out of their way to help small papers. (Aug. 11)


Mike Fannin: Today begins the official one-year countdown to the Beijing Olympic Games, and in China – amidst all the banging and hammering – there are the usual questions that come with the marking of the date. Will the venues be finished in time? Is the country ready for this grand moment in history? Can the United States be overcome in the medal count? Are there enough public restrooms? (Aug. 10)


Garry D. Howard: Like a thief in the night, there we are, taking from our colleagues in order to improve our own sections. It's called stealing. But is it right? (Aug. 9)


Chris Vivlamore: The Michael Vick story broke on April 26, 2007. We received a report that police were investigating possible dogfighting at Vick's Virginia property after his cousin was arrested on a drug charge. The bulk of coverage was done by Falcons beat writers Steve Wyche and D. Orlando Ledbetter and coordinated by myself. (Aug. 8)


Steve Quintana: For the printed edition, we published a daily special section during the Finals. The section was 6-10 pages. We had seven sports reporters and two columnists at each game, home and away. We published a four-page stadium edition for the Game 4 clincher, and sold all 150,000 copies, even though the Spurs clinched on the road. (Aug. 7)


The late Van McKenzie was named the 2007 winner of the Red Smith Award. View photos from the luncheon held in his honor during the 2007 APSE Convention in St. Louis. (Aug. 6)


Relive the 2007 APSE Convention in St. Louis through photographs by Whitney Curtis. (Aug. 5)


Greg Brownell: The APSE's executive committee gave preliminary approval to two proposed amendments to the organizations' bylaws during the summer convention. (Aug. 4)


Lynn Hoppes: We had more than 20 newcomers at the APSE Convention June. So I asked many of them what they thought of the convention and what ideas they had for future conventions. (Aug. 3)


Lynn Hoppes: We had a lot of veterans putting on programs at the Summer APSE Convention. I asked them their thoughts about how it went. (Aug. 2)


Lynn Hoppes: Jan. 4 and May 27 are the first two mandatory dates for the 2007 APSE Contest. Have you pulled those newspapers yet? Have you found the best copies? Have you looked for stories that might be on A-1? Or an insert that is part of the sport section? Have you started gathering stories for the contest? It might be the first of August, but it's important to keep on top of these things before it's too late. (Aug. 1)
