Congratulations to the Sun Herald staff for the well-deserved awards from the Better Newspaper and APME contests. I'm glad the contest judges recognized what we all know.
We're very lucky to have such an outstanding newspaper here. The diligence shown in exposing the recent DMR scandal and subsequent attempted cover-up, along with the Port of Gulfport's apparently misspent diverted HUD funding several years ago (to name only two of many) resulted in our learning facts we never would have known with a less dedicated newspaper.
It was great to see so many writers and photographers named in all categories, recognizing your well-rounded coverage. Please keep up the good work.
