NEWSLETTER FOR FEBRUARY 2001

Negotiating the maze

A walk on the Internet pathway
This Newsletter explores Internet entities and their relationship to our core business: producing sports sections for daily newspapers. With the proliferation of sites many of them legitimate news-gathering operations there is a deep difference of opinion as to whether they belong in APSE, and, if they do, how we would go about admitting them.

Internet question keeps on tugging
Bob Yates: APSE president Tim Burke has appointed a committee to consider several Internet issues, including the membership question.

The Internet: we're taking another look
Tim Burke: We can worry not about newspapers dying a slow death, but about how APSE can help members embrace the wired world so that we're relevant to a future generation of readers.

Changing bylaws would be tricky
Dave Morgan: As a private entity with bylaws that clearly define it as a newspaper organization, APSE appears to be on solid legal footing to maintain its current mission if it so chooses, according to several legal experts.

Requests for credentials not equal
Emilio Garcia-Ruiz: The issue of whether Internet sites should get credentials for major sports events might have some APSE members nervous, but it barely gave pause to the Orange Bowl Committee.

Internet sites have a role in APSE
Rick Jaffe: Internet sites are filled with young journalists who need to be taught the right way of doing things, and, to me, that's one of the things APSE has always stood for trying to make journalism as good as it can be.

Different agendas; keep them out
Jack Sheppard: Changing our bylaws to allow non-newspaper Internet organizations to join APSE would be like inviting worms to an apple convention.

Executive Committee will get Internet report at Redondo
The APSE Internet Committee will present a State of the Internet report at the Executive Committee meeting that opens the winter workshop Feb. 25 in Redondo Beach, Calif.

Other news

Obituary: John Steadman, Baltimore Sun
Baltimore without John Steadman isn't as proud and passionate, isn't as distinguished and distinctive, isn't as special.

March 15 is the deadline for Red Smith nominations
Nominations are open for the Red Smith Award, APSE's highest honor, which is given annually to a person who has made major contributions to sports journalism.
List of Red Smith Award winners

Golf outing remains a thorny issue
Bill Dwyre: The main things that make sports editors wrinkle their brows about the various writers groups usually carry a similar theme: These aren't really writers groups.

McEwen's not-so-sweet exit
Christopher Goffard: Tampa Tribune columnist Tom McEwen says goodbye.

Efforts certainly not minor league
Gene Warnick: Minor league sports, major league coverage. At least that's the case for many newspapers whose towns are home to successful minor league franchises.

60 train at California workshop
Paul D. Bowker: APSE's drive-in workshop went west for its 10th incarnation, with about 60 sports editors, copy editors, reporters and students attending the all-day program at Costa Mesa, Calif., in mid-December.

Why not try on-line sessions?
Gene Warnick: We should look beyond the idea of driving to a central location for the APSE drive-in workshop. We should pursue the possibility of having training sessions on line.

On the move: Ball, Lampugnale go to espn.com
Kirby Arnold: Kevin Ball knows about the adjustments that come with changing jobs.

Regions: Seattle strike rough for both sides
The Seattle newspaper strike is over. As is usually the case in these situations, not everyone is happy.

Commissioners meeting in N.Y.
Dan Cunningham: With the 2002 Winter Olympics and a potential baseball strike after the 2001 season looming as two of the major stories confronting sports editors, the APSE commissioners meeting will expand horizons this year.

Sponsors come through for 2001 convention
Herb Stutz: There is no longer doubt regarding what a bargain an APSE convention is. A recently completed survey of seven other journalistic organizations shows that attending our convention is markedly less expensive.

Programs gets major funding boost
Sandy Bailey: The APSE/Sports Journalism Institute has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Times Mirror Foundation, which will go toward funding the this year's class.

It's still not too late to be a judge
Don Skwar: It's still not too late to volunteer to be an APSE contest judge at the winter workshop, Feb. 24-28 at Redondo Beach, Calif. So, please, do it!

APSE paying expenses for 16 judges at Redondo
These are the regional representatives whose expenses are being paid by APSE so that they can attend the winter meeting at Redondo Beach and participate in the contest judging.
