Sunday, January 8, 2006

The Southeast Missourian won five awards, including first place for Best Coverage of Local Business and Economic News, in the 2005 Editorial Contest sponsored by the Suburban Newspapers of America.

The newspaper's business section was edited by Scott Moyers.

Bob Miller, now the news editor, won two awards: second prize for Best Breaking News Story, his description of how a suspect was caught four minutes after a Jackson bank robbery; and a third prize for Best Feature Series for "Test by Pregnancy," which chronicled a Leopold, Mo., couple's courageous quest to have a baby.

The Southeast Missourian also won second prizes for Best Front Page for pages designed by Gabe Hartwig and for Best Column Writing, managing editor Sam Blackwell's column "Letters from Home."
