Source staff gets a nod from the Society of Professional Journos

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 4:27 PM

We’re a pretty humble bunch around here, but we just had to let ya’ll know that your hometown alt weekly nabbed a couple of nods this past week from the Society of Professional Journalists for our writing and reporting in 2009. Competing against non-daily newspapers and magazines from across the state and in southwest Washington, the Source garnered awards for news, social, issues and business reporting. Most notably, Arts and Culture editor Mike Bookey took home a first place award for his news feature “Poet. Friend. Killer?” about Jason Centrone, the artist turned transient who killed two other men in a local homeless camp. Bookey’s story beat out features from no less than the Willamette Week to win the top honor. Other winners included Editor Eric Flowers who grabbed a second place in the social issues category for a piece on sustainable agriculture. Contributor Daniel Pearson took home a third place award for a feature piece on the struggles at KOHD. Without the support of readers and advertisers, we wouldn’t have a chance to tell these kinds of stories. So thanks for sticking with us. Here’s to more good scoops in 2010.
