Not that some recognition isn't in order. But I must ask, who was the competition, and was Palo Alto city hall staff or Councilmembers the judges?
Congrats to all the individual winners. Also, to the many other winners in the hundreds of categories created by the California Newspaper Publishers Association (CNPA) - a TRADE ASSOCIATION!! - that wants to make all of its members happy so that they have something to crow about to their advertisers. Follow the money!
Nicely done, well deserved. But when they gave you an excellence award for "public service commitment and the website, did they read TS?
Let's see ...
The Oscars= Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
The Grammys= National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences
The Emmys= Academy of Television Arts and Sciences
All trade organizations. Winners are chosen by their peers in the industry. CNPA does the same in California. Congrats Weekly and Online.
uh, Glady, comparing the AMPAS, MARAS, and ATAS, collectively - to CNPA? Seriously? CNPA is a STATE Trade Assn. If you understand the politics of regional trade associations, you wouldn't have made your claim. The PA Weakly is an OK paper, but "best in state"? What are the categories? What are the circ qualifications? What are the prerequisites? Give me a break!
If anyone had bothered to read the story before they mouthed off, they would have seen that the winners were selected by: "A panel of 35 journalists from states outside of Califonia selected the winners, who were chosen from among journalists with daily, weekly and school newspapers," not the publishers nor any politicians. And not the trade association.
Given that, it seems the quality of the journalistic product is obviously higher than the quality of the comments above.
Congratulations to a really fine news organization. Reading this particular local paper is always one of the highlights of my week.
Congratulations and thank you for the decades of fine, faithful service.
I think you people do a great job, and i am happy to hear you have been recognized for your good work. Keep it up!
Congratulations to the Weekly! I moved to Palo Alto in 1982 and have always enjoyed the excellent local coverage of our hometown paper.
Stupid is what stupid says. Ignorant users should read before they make fools of themselves. Obviously, The Weekly has provided years of quality news and service to our great town. Let's not attempt minimize the accolades which are so well deserved.
