  • Mail Tribune Sports Editor Tim Trower has been recognized with two national awards for best writing, and the Mail Tribune received honorable mention for its daily sports section in a competition sponsored by the Associated Press Sports Editors.
    Trower was named a top-10 recipient this week for the breaking news and column writing categories for 2013.
    The breaking news story, published Sept. 22, was on the closure of Cedar Links Golf Course and ran on the day the course shut down.
    The column entry included five golf-related articles. Trower writes a weekly column during the golf season.
    It's the second time he's earned two top-10s in the same year. He has six overall.
    In the section competition, four entries were presented, including two mandatory dates. The sections, put together by page designer Kevin Goff, were dominated by high school and other local coverage. Other staff members are Kris Henry, Dan Jones, Joe Zavala, Frank Silow and Warren Blenkush.
    The competition includes newspapers of under 30,000 circulation and was judged by a panel of about 100 sports editors.
    The panelists selected the best writing in the categories of beat writing, columns, breaking news, features, projects, explanatory and investigative.
    The top five finalists in writing categories will be announced later this month. Winners will be recognized in the annual APSE national convention in June in Washington, DC.
