Another Trophy Pops Up
The National Association of Black Journalists has awarded another New Times staff writer second place among the nation's small newspapers.
Staffer Robert Andrew Powell took the prize in the sports category for "Coming of Age on the 50-Yard Line" (November 27, 1997), a story that described the intoxicating march of a group of inner-city boys toward a Pop Warner football league championship.
In May staff writer Jacob Bernstein won an NABJ second-place honor among feature stories for newspapers with circulation under 150,000. His article described Miami's first black police officers.
The awards will be presented at a banquet in Washington, D.C., later this month.
