The featured speaker for the evening was Governor Dayton, who discussed education and took questions from the audience about the budget impasse.

congrats on all the awards. I miss reading Judd Spicer's sports articles. Did he leave for good or just on an extended LOA?

When they give out that many awards, for that few "journalists", you damn better win a few.

I'm sure with a little effort, anyone could put together a pool of people to go into SPJ and "vote" to nominate a rock for one of these awards.  Enough nominations, and wallah! 

I, the simple and plane rock, won?But I only held down the Copy and Paste article someone else wrote.

And accepting the award on behalf of the "rock"...

I do like the graphic design work coming from CP.
