NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER 2004

newsletter cover
  Starting over
In a year when most journalists hoped that an economic recovery would ease hiring freezes or travel restrictions or space cuts, many sections across the country are being hit with new and deeper cuts. The memos have circulated the country with malice.

Convention success begins with the planning in February
Jerry Micco: As we look down the road as an organization, it's going to be more important for us to pay attention to what we do in June rather than what we do in the contest judging in February.

Give the convention a boost: Make it available to all editors
Greg Brownell: One of these years, on a one-time basis, we should try a convention that functions something like a giant drive-in workshop. The emphasis would be on attracting as many members as possible by keeping costs down.

2005 member dues
The third and final past-due notices were sent out Dec. 1 to those who have not paid their 2004-05 dues.

AP poll: Cast the ballot
Dwayne Bray: In the past, college football writers considered it the ultimate honor to vote in the Associated Press top 25 poll. But increasingly, writers and their editors are finding the voting to be more of a chore if you vote against the hometown team.

Toast to the town
Larry Ames: Red Sox fans fans waited impatiently for 86 years for a World Series winner. The Boston Globe helped its readers savor every moment along the way.

'In the end, we thought we gave enough'
Joe Sullivan: No one in Boston actually thought the Red Sox were going to win the World Series. Everyone waited for disaster to strike, an ill-timed base on balls, a brutal error, or a series-ending home run in the 13th inning. But it didn't. So what does a sports department do when it finally happens?

A flurry of punches ignited a flurry of news coverage
Tim Wheatley: How the Indianapolis Star covered a brawl that changed the way we watch the NBA.

Bill McMillan: How the Detroit News covered a brawl that changed the way we watch the NBA.

Super Bowl XXXIX: A coverage co-op
Chet Fussman: Planning coverage for the upcoming Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville has been a valuable exercise in interdepartmental communication at the Florida Times-Union.

Access remains primary concern for writers groups
Bill Bradley: Access for their members is the overwhelming concern for beat writers, according to this year's reports from the liaisons for APSE's Writers Group Committee.
Writer's groups: 2005 updates:
Baseball Writers Association of America
Football Writers Association of America
Golf Writers Association of America
National Motorsports Press Association
Pro Basketball Writers Association
Pro Hockey Writers Association
National Turf Writers Association
Outdoor Writers Association of America
U.S. Basketball Writers Association
Track and Field Writers Association
Pro Football Writers Association
U.S. Tennis Writers Association

Panel discusses ways to increase membership
Jason Carris: With belt-tightening and cutbacks rampant in newsrooms throughout the nation, APSE may need to consider some new ideas to attract and retain members.

Spotlight: Paul D. Bowker, Kalamazoo Gazette
Joel Rippel: After APSE decided to form a new committee on feedback and critiques it wasn't difficult to find the right person to head it. Paul D. Bowker was the logical choice.

On the move
Larry Ames: A region-by-region look at personnel moves.
