2004 Convention

Note of thanks lays groundwork for future
Jerry Micco: Sometimes when you sit down and try to get a feel for something it takes someone with a fresh outlook and a fresh set of eyes to open one's own.

Walsh's ESPN spiel translates to newspapers
Jeff Otterbein: John Walsh's middle initial is "A," which comes as no surprise because if you were to grade him at various points of his career, wouldn't that be what you'd give him on his report card?

SJI: Boot camp for beginners
Brian Gomez: The week I spent at the Sports Journalism Institute, a minority program tied into the annual Associated Press Sports Editors convention, was anything but a fairytale.

Trio of sports innovators is still on the cutting edge
Barry Forbis: Dave Smith, George Solomon and Neil Amdur are sports editing legends who, in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, transformed the way newspapers cover sports in this country.

Prescription for better management
Holly Lawton: Garry Howard and Mike Fannin have a prescription for better management: Put an emphasis on building relationships and really getting to know your people.

The Ground Breakers issue new challenge
Bill Bradley: The challenge was made to a room full of sports editors.

Jimmy Cannon: A knack for 'touching a nerve'
Scott Kendrick: Nobody asked him, but ... Jimmy Cannon would have had a problem with the name given to the highest honor in sports journalism.
Red Smith Award winners

Breaking the ice
David Sell: Patty Kryscha of Southwest Airlines was the keynote speaker for a workshop entitled "Making Ideas Fly: How to Create a Work Environment That Encourages Innovation and Creativity."

137 prep ideas for the taking
David Campbell: The sampling of work from the Best High School Ideas session at the APSE Convention shows that preps can produce everything from small and creative design twists to a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

Reporting, writing part of the plan
Jay Lee: Keeping a reporter from embarrassing himself in another country is just one of the benefits of good planning when you're preparing to cover a big event.

Agate czars share wisdom
Brad Zimanek: "Agate for Dummies" was not the sexiest session title in Philadelphia, but few who attended the workshop led by the Chicago Tribune's Lee Gordon and Chuck Grimes of the Dallas Morning News would question their passion for the subject.

Breaking news: Baseball bans andro
Mike Sherman: Oh, and by the way, baseball banned andro. That was the big news from the APSE panel discussion entitled "Steroids: Where do we go from here?"

Memo to sports editors: Lighten up!
Ron Matthews: Tim Harrower introduced himself to the room and issued a warning: "My job today is to make you uncomfortable."

Covering a beat in the age of instant information
Dwayne Bray: If ESPN is looking for a spin-off to the popular Pardon The Interruption show, the cable network might want to consider auditioning Newsday's Jon Heyman and the Philadelphia Daily News' Phil Jasner.

Addressing the readers' rants
Jorge Rojas: Are you producing your father's newspaper? If so, stop it this instance!

Workshop attendance soars
Herb Stutz: With the face of APSE changing – 50 of the 158 registrants at the Philadelphia Convention were first-timers – so are member needs.

Jay and the not-so-silent-Al do Philly
Jay Dieffenbach: "I've been there, so you're going," said Arizona Republic sports editor Mark Faller, cordially inviting me, an assistant sports editor, to attend the APSE Convention in Philadelphia June 22-27.

Oatmeal is good for you
Kim Orendor: The American Health Association claims eating oatmeal is good for the heart. Daily Oklahoman sports editor Mike Sherman knows it's also good for the office.

'Nuts over balls'
Chuck Scott: "Whether you're in Macon, Ga., or Bakersfield or Philadelphia, there's no excuse not to have fun with your section," Pat McLoone of the Philadelphia Daily News said during the workshop titled "What's Fun and What's Over the Line?"

Dates are in, will you be?
Celeste Williams: Plucked at random from a Nike cap by Jim Jenks and Pat McLoone at the annual Saturday night awards banquet in Philadelphia, the first two mandatory dates for the contest are (drum roll, please): Tuesday, Jan. 27, and Sunday, April 4.

Meet the candidates for Third VP
Jerry Micco: It's time to vote for APSE's Third Vice President.

Obituary: Caesar Alsop
At home or at work, Caesar Alsop, who died June 5 due to complications from heart disease, was the definition of your go-to guy.

A win-win situation for all
Kim Orendor: It takes a certain mental make up (or instability) to be the sports editor of a small newspaper.

Orlando A to Z
Lynn Hoppes: With the 2005 APSE Convention in Florida about a year away, here are the basics of the convention.
