Mom

The (very happy) farmer's wife

Wanted me to post this. (Let me know if the link doesn't work for you.)

The upshot is that the paper that runs the Farm Side did good at the New York State Associated Press awards.

The Venner Vox, a really cool blog that I miss every day, won a second place award, which is no surprise to me at least. It was always interesting and at times pretty highly charged.

The Sideline Guys won first place in their division, the niche website category.

And in the under 25000 circulation column category, the Farm Side came in third. I was pretty tickled.

Hearty congratulations to Charlie Kraebel and to the fellows who write the Sideline guys....

Congratulations to you and your colleagues on the paper. I'm not surprised your column won recognition, to judge from the quality of wit, honesty, and intelligence evident in your blog. You make it real. Thanks for that.

Dani, a complete surprise to me. I was firmly warned when nominated that I didn't have a chance. lol

Cathy, thank you. Getting the news was a bright spot in a truly awful day, thus all the sweeter.

Congratulations on your award.
I hope that some of the really outstanding writing from your blog also shows up in your column.
Your descriptions of the moon, fog, snow, and late night are all the stuff of great, great writing. The readers of your column should also be privileged to it.
Again, congratulations on your column award. There should also be an award for your beautiful descriptive writing!

Keith, thank you so much! The Farm Side is a lot like Northview, which really grew out of it. Maybe more on issues, but a lot of the same.
