Three Tribune writers honored by CNPA

The Tahoe Daily Tribune won three awards at the annual California Newspaper Publishers Association awards luncheon held in Pasadena, Calif., on June 26.

Denise Sloan, who has worked as the Tribune’s entertainment editor for 13 years, won first place for her entertainment coverage in the Tribune’s Action magazine. This award marks the sixth consecutive year Sloan has won an award for the Action magazine.

Andy Bourelle, a Tribune staff writer, won second place behind first-place winner Glendale News-Press in the category of environmental reporting for an article he wrote called “Finding Tahoe’s faults.” The article, which was published in the Nov. 13, 1998 edition of the Tahoe Daily Tribune, explored the seismic activity and faults in the Tahoe Basin. Bourelle, who is originally from Ohio, is celebrating his one-year anniversary as a Tribune staff writer this month.

Claire Fortier, the Tribune’s managing editor, also won first place in the Columns, Commentary, Criticism category for three columns she wrote in December 1998.

The Tribune writers competed for the awards against other writers from daily newspapers in California who have a circulation of 10,000 or less.
