NEWSLETTER FOR AUGUST 2001

Convention report

Timothy M. Jacobsen
THE HIGHLIGHTS: At left, Don Skwar of the Boston Globe (standing), APSE's incoming president, presents the traditional outgoing president's plaque to Tim Burke of the Palm Beach Post. At right, William Rhoden of the New York Times makes a point at the session on Ray Lewis coverage.

Plenty of hot topics -some cool fun, too
John Cherwa: The APSE convention in Baltimore was an overwhelming artistic success, but what fun is a convention if you can't have fun with it?

The numbers add up: Thanks
Tim Burke: Your newest former president offers some parting thoughts in an APSE Newsletter version of By the Numbers.

Significant year looms for us
Don Skwar: If there's one recurring theme ringing through the 13 years that I've been associated with APSE, it is that we all want the organization to be relevant.

Friendships and chances to learn
Jason Schaumburg: On my way to Baltimore, I was concerned that I wouldn't find a restaurant to my liking (I can't stand seafood). But that wasn't my biggest fear.

Thompson talks tough, hits home
Tom Peterson: John Thompson called the clattering luncheon dishes a distraction. For him, maybe.

After 10 days, still unconquered
Dan Cortez: When I was growing up, my father would tell my older brother and me how the world worked. And he would tell us where his sons rated.

We're looking for good ideas
Bob Sutton: Everywhere you turned in Baltimore during the convention, there were ideas.

Regions, recruiting hot issues at small-paper caucus
Bob Sutton: Editors from small papers took a look at APSE recruiting at convention caucuses.

General sessions
Looking at the credibility issue: Tell readers what you do, and why
Who was really the victim here? Panelists diverge on Lewis story
Use person-to-person approach, reporting roundtable panel urges
Earnhardt death lured readers, but forced new look at coverage
Plenty of good ideas at session; Best one puts them on line, on CD

Workshops
Copy editing initiative takes off: Scholarship, workshops next steps
Enthusiasm, creativity cited as keys to better prep coverage
First step to improving headlines? Induce confidence with feedback
Local athletes make good copy for low-budget Olympic coverage
So you want to be a sports editor? Get ready for the unexpected
Survival tip for these tough times: Conversations with your bosses
Planning and communicating will lead to better enterprise work
Make use of your Internet site, and just keep on experimenting
Don't give up hard news stories; You're best qualified to do them
Keep stories simple, but not silly; It's key to your paper's credibility

Participation down, enthusiasm up
Paul D. Bowker: Amid the hustle and bustle of four days of APSE workshops and activities, editors from big and small papers went over sections.

Stories, tributes honor Steadman
The late John Steadman was honored at the convention as the 21st winner of the Red Smith Award.
List of Red Smith Award winners

Eichenberger elected second VP
Sandra McKee: Bill Eichenberger, deputy sports editor of Newsday, was elected APSE's second vice president for 2001-2002.

AP writing, photography winners
Doug Ferguson, the Associated Press golf reporter, and Steve Wilstein, a national reporter, each won two awards in the APSE 2000 contest for AP staffers.

Not a lot of business -but some good idea exchange
Aaron Watson: I was attending my first APSE convention, and I expected a line of editors out the door when we held three informal two-hour sessions for questions, requests and complaints.

Some Salt Lake survival tips
Terry Taylor: After Nagano and Sydney and hours translating schedules to U.S. deadlines and grappling with per diems and exchange rates I am happy to go to Salt Lake City for an Olympics.

Seattle experience will be different
Herb Stutz: Given the economic times and the small turnout in Baltimore, the temptation might have been to cut back APSE's room block for Seattle.

Workshop increase draws praise
After doing it for 28 years, APSE should have the convention logistics down pat but nothing could be further from reality.
