Well it was kind of nice to get noticed. I was fortunate to be honoured, along with three of my colleagues, as a finalist in the Ontario Newspaper Awards. I didn't expect it. But it was nice regardless. One award for city hall reporting, the other for feature reporting on a story about mining history. So Sarah Moore, who was also a finalist, was kind enough to attend the awards night in Hamilton and to bring back these tidy little pieces of etched glass. I put them someplace special ... next to my whiskey bottles!
