NEWSLETTER FOR JUNE 2003

newsletter cover

Computer assisted reporting can find trends in stories that might otherwise go overlooked. Knowing how to use a spreadsheet program (ex. MS Excel) and a database program (ex. MS Access), are more than enough skills for reporters and editors at newspapers to solve most data problems.

2003 Convention

Stay cool
Bob Yates: OK, here is your survivor's guide to the Dallas APSE convention, especially if you are a first-timer.

Convention schedule

Judgment calls
Jerry Micco: While it's always a dicey proposition to open up the APSE annual contest to changes, a committee appointed by APSE president John Cherwa will propose a few changes at the Dallas convention this month.

Vote yes to contest changes and everybody's a winner
John Cherwa: Elsewhere in this issue you will read about proposed changes to the APSE contest. It will be presented in a factual, impartial way, leaving you to make your own judgment. This is the editorial supporting it.

Other news

Range of voices
Kathy Tulumello: A paper's personality can be defined as much by who writes a column as what they have to say.

Commissioners' meetings
Another sitdown with the league leaders shows the range of emotions.

MLB: Bud Selig
NFL: Paul Tagliabue
NASCAR: Brian France
NBA: David Stern
WNBA: Val Ackerman
NHL: Gary Bettman
MLS: Don Garber
NHLPA: Bob Goodenow

Sam Lacy (1903-2003)
Mike Klingaman: Sam Lacy, a Baltimore sportswriter whose crusade for integration rattled the cage of big league baseball and helped erase the game's color line more than a half-century ago, died May 8 of heart and kidney failure at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. He was 99.

Taking a leap on another triple-dog dare
Kim Orendor: The fastest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't do it.

Red Smith Award winner: George Solomon
Ken Denlinger: George Solomon of The Washington Post has won one of sports journalism's highest honors, the Red Smith Award.

Roundtable: Balancing local vs. national
Kim Orendor: There are several issues that can fire up local readership, but nothing stirs up "shame on you" e-mails and letters like putting a perceived major event below the fold or – worse yet – inside.
