NEWSLETTER FOR APRIL 2002

newsletter cover
  Let's get busy
From surveys we did to determine possible attendance, we're confident we'll have a representative turnout in Seattle, albeit perhaps a little smaller than usual and perhaps with fewer smaller-sized papers from outside the great Northwest.

Other news

Mentoring your interns well worth the effort
Don Skwar: As the vacation requests from our staffs start piling up, those of us fortunate enough to be blessed with the saviors of our summers the interns breathe a sigh of relief. We know that at least some of the headaches of finding replacements will be taken away. But if we stop there, we're short-changing ourselves and, more importantly, the intern.

When the rebuilding process never ends
Bob Sutton: It's always a challenge, sometimes competing with larger papers and dealing with such obstacles as shrinking budgets and changing personnel.

The man who answered our questions
Meri-Jo Borzilleri: Mike Moran, the USOC's longtime managing director for media and public relations, plans to retire at the end of the year.

Taking the mystery out of credentials
Bill Dwyre: Not too many years ago, Olympic credentials were pretty mysterious things. Then Mike Moran stepped in.

Register now for Northeast seminar, tour of ESPN
Paul D. Bowker: The spring APSE drive-in workshop will combine with the APSE Northeast region for a one-day seminar and meeting May 6 at the Bristol (Conn.) Radisson hotel.

Obituary: Orville Henry

Roundtable: Dealing with youth sports
Mark H. Bickel: As much as many of us would like to take out a broom and sweep youth sports results under the proverbial rug, we can't. And we shouldn't want to.
