We're #1...thanks to you!

Well, the results are in for the 2009 Kentucky Press awards, and after the dust had settled, The Springfield Sun had emerged as the number one paper in the state for its category.

I was fortunate enough to win a couple of first place awards for my writing and photography, plus a couple of other awards for my sports writing.

I must say that it is a great feeling knowing that your work is appreciated by your peers, but from the comments I have received from our readers, we are also fortunate to have a loyal readership that likes what we do, as well.

Any kind of success we have as a newspaper is thanks to you. We couldn’t have done this without great subjects to write about and to photograph. The paper is a blank canvas, we are the brush and the citizens of Washington County are the color palette from which we draw our inspiration.

We’re not resting on our laurels, though. We’re already working to make 2010 even better. Thank you for making us #1 for 2009!
