New Times Wins Big


Miami New Times staff writer Francisco Alvarado has been named journalist of the year in the Florida Awards of Excellence contest, edging out writers from every daily, weekly, and other newspaper across the state. His coverage of schools, immigration, and -- um -- marijuana cultivation knocked the socks off the judges.

South Florida New Times writers also dominated virtually every category in the nondaily part of the contest. A list of the winners follows the jump:
