Enterprise Publisher and Editor Caroline Titus
The Victorian Village's scrappy weekly, the Ferndale Enterprise
, was informed
last week that it nabbed two awards
for best editorial writing in the National Newspaper Association's annual Better Newspaper Contest.
The 135-year-old paper is more or less a one-woman-show these days, with Caroline Titus (wife of Ferndale Mayor Stuart Titus) acting as publisher, editor, reporter, page designer -- even occasional distributor. (See the Journal
's February profile of the Tituses and the paper here
The NNA honored the Enterprise
for a pair of editorials penned by Caroline Titus -- a first place (among non-dailies with circulation less than 3,000) for her May 17, 2012 critique of the Humboldt County Fair Board and a third place for her Dec. 20, 2012 piece about the widespread bullying and intimidation of a high school student. You can read both editorials over at the Enterprise
Congrats to Titus and the paper.
