NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER 2002
When the APSE Sports Journalism Institute was created 10 years ago, it was a toss-up whether it would last very long. As it prepares for its 11th year going into the 2003 convention, the program continues to provide young, diversity candidates for the nation's sports departments.

Sports can take lead in fight for younger readers
John Cherwa: The focus groups have spoken. The money has been allocated. And the battleground has been chosen. And what better place to stage the most exciting newspaper war than Chicago. Hildy Johnson, we've missed you.
Ten years of SJI graduates: Where are they now?
Be a part of good work
Sandy Bailey: Ten years after its inception, the Sports Journalism Institute is still singing the same song: We need newspapers for the upcoming program.
To Hootie and back
Bill Dwyre: Just when you think you are a grizzled veteran and you have seen it all, you find that you aren't and you haven't.
Cluing in our compatriots at larger papers
Brad Zimanek: The annual APSE contest is quickly approaching. Soon the final mandatory dates will be chosen and entries will be due, as usual, around Super Bowl time.
I used to be in the front row
Steve Richardson: It's a different era for the news media, particularly for the print media.
Quoting them on 'this and (that)'
Jerry Micco: Words hurt. Words in print can hurt for a long time.
To my great friends and colleagues with APSE:
Mike Moran: Saying goodbye to a large number of great friends this way is hardly best, but with the chance that I won't see many of you again, I wanted to simply be on the record with a few thoughts as I retire from the USOC after serving the media for nearly a quarter century.
Judges still needed for February
Bill Eichenberger: February and APSE contest judging in Torrance, Calif., will be here before you know it. So please let me know if you are planning to participate as a judge.

Kevin Dale: APSE and the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund are moving forward with a training program for future sports copy editors.
Should God grace our pages?
