NEWSLETTER FOR OCTOBER 2004

newsletter cover
  Riding the
storm out

Hurricane season turned football season into an afterthought for most everyone in Florida this year. Four hurricanes struck Florida in a six-week span in August and September, an unprecedented disaster that began with Charley, followed by Frances, then Ivan, and, finally, Jeanne.

New committee will help APSE fulfill critical mission
Jerry Micco: One of the things we all strive for as sports editors is feedback. OK, maybe we don't want to hear it all the time, but we know in our hearts that it's what helps make us better.

Book 'em
Dan McGrath: If you want to give your readers more than the best daily coverage of a championship team or a memorable season, throw the book at 'em. It's becoming an increasingly popular trend.

Covering the Olympics
David Sell: The Summer Olympics in Athens were the biggest political, cultural, business and athletic event on the planet, and newspapers gave it big-event coverage. And that was without a catastrophic terrorist attack.

Newest VP will be the voice for small papers
Bill Bradley: If you have been to APSE conventions the past four years, you have seen Greg Brownell. You may not have heard him. Brownell is the tall, soft-spoken guy in the windbreaker. He is also APSE's newly elected third vice-president who has already made a loud statement with his section.

Keeping an eye on changes in the AP wire
Greg Brownell: The AP has cut back on some of the items it sends to newspapers that don't purchase the highest level of wire service. That's a concern for those of us at small newspapers.

Wanted: contest catchers, judges
We want you! Judging is Feb. 19-23 in Torrance, Calif., and the call is out for catchers and judges.

Dues reminder
If the check is not in the mail, well, it should be. Notices for 2004-05 dues were mailed Sept. 1.

Obituary: Joe Falls
Lynn Henning: Michigan sports fans lost a booming voice when Hall of Fame Detroit News columnist Joe Falls died on Aug. 11 following a long battle with diabetes. He was 76.
What they said about Joe Falls

Convention site gets an upgrade for 2005
Herb Stutz: APSE is going to The Ritz! In an unprecedented action, the site of next June's APSE Convention has been moved from the JW Marriott Grande Lakes Orlando Resort to The Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes.

Coverage of youth and recreational sports is challenge
Jason Carris: There is no single answer to covering youth and recreational sports.

Spotlight: Randy Harvey, Baltimore Sun
Joel Rippel: Los Angeles Times sports editor Bill Dwyre says the business has a lot of sportswriters and some journalists. When Dwyre announced that Randy Harvey was leaving the Los Angeles Times for the Baltimore Sun, he praised Harvey as one of the journalists.

Seven new members join Writers Committee
Bill Bradley: The APSE's Writers Liaisons Committee has a different look: Seven new editors have joined the group overseeing eight writers groups.
APSE Writers: The Liaison Group

Hip, hip, clichè
Ron Matthews: Few things challenge the creative minds in a sports department more than the annual football sections.
