NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER 1999

Beat the clock ...

Editors play the deadline game

To accommodate television and other marketing situations mostly outside our control, sports events are starting later and later. How are we dealing with it? Are we losing? Check out the story.

A problem, but (usually) we love it
Mitchell Krugel: Welcome to the Late Show, the fire drill that comes with covering big events that last into the morning and make putting out a newspaper like running the two-minute drill with Joe Montana.

11:15 start? We can't just ignore it
Jim Pedley: Slim Smith didn’t need back copies of the Mesa Tribune to remember what life was like in his department the two nights the Diamondbacks played the Mets in the National League playoffs.

Internet is an alternate
Jim Pedley: Late starting times for sports events are here to stay. We have to deal with it, sports editors say. One tool is the Internet.

APME's plan a good start on diversity
Tracy Dodds: In addition to maintaining the APSE/Sports Journalism Institute and setting aside time at the convention to discuss diversity, APSE should consider a project for developing ideas along the lines of the project undertaken last year by the Associated Press Managing Editors Diversity Committee.

Intern program gets two kinds of help
Sandy Bailey: Thanks to the efforts of Tom O’Toole and Dan Cunningham, and the generosity of Scripps Howard and Hearst newspapers, the Sports Journalism Institute has a good start on funding for the Class of 2000.

Chicago will keep us busy, and then some
John Cherwa: Plans for APSE’s 2000 convention in Chicago remain on course as the landscape surrounding the host hotel changes.

Small-paper reps needed to judge
Tim Burke: Region chairs should be completing the process of selecting representatives from small and medium-sized newspapers to attend the winter meeting at St. Petersburg in February.

Guide and checklist for the winter meeting

American, US Airways offers discounts
Herb Stutz: American Airlines and US Airways are providing discounts for APSE members to travel to the winter meeting and contest judging Feb. 19-23 at St. Petersburg.

On the move: Urban gets Mesa enterprise beat
Kirby Arnold: Slim Smith had two desk openings and one mission: to improve the enterprise presence in the Mesa Tribune sports section.

Northeast in a special-section whirl
Regions: For most of the 23 editors at the Mystic Hilton Nov. 15-16, the region meeting was a piece of cake compared with the smoldering summer and fall that was left behind.

Michigan fellowship charges batteries
Larry Siddons: Imagine sending a star reporter away for eight months and getting back an even brighter one, relaxed, invigorated, stimulated by time spent in a cultural and athletic community — and at no cost to you or your paper.

Long trip to Huntsville pays off
Paul D. Bowker: For Mike Koehler and Mike Carrels of the Daily Phoenix in Muskogee, Okla., 10 hours in a car on the way to the Nov. 8 APSE drive-in workshop in Huntsville, Ala., paid immediate dividends.

Arrest stories keep editors on toes
Roundtable: The arrest of a college athlete remains a difficult coverage area for sports departments of newspapers that have major programs in town. Situations like these pose a number of questions.

A welcome and a challenge
Randy Beard: Peter Warrick had been expected to grab headlines as an All-American receiver for Florida State’s well-regarded football team, but in late September he began to grab headlines of a different kind.

A new look for a long-time feature
Rick Jaffe: With this issue of the Newsletter, How We Did It takes a new twist.

Final notices going out
Final dues notices for the 1999-2000 APSE year will be in the mail this month. Ed Storin, APSE’s secretary/treasurer, has requested that members complete the information forms that accompany the notices and return them with checks for the correct amounts.
