Beacon Publishing picked up eight awards last week at the annual Washington Newspaper Publishers Association convention, which was held online.
Edmonds Beacon Editor Brian Soergel won first place in the comprehensive coverage, single writer category, for a series of stories on the Edmonds Waterfront Connector, which the City Council voted down after heated protests from citizens.
"Comprehensive coverage that I am sure was well-received by the community," wrote a judge. "Presents the issues fairly, but also notes the drama involved as elected officials wrestled with a tough decision."
