An award was given for coverage of a story no other paper had the strength of charicter to post. It has brought recognition, award, and profit to the paper and editor. Even before those things it brought respect to its institution and awakened a sense that as a community someone was standing up for transparency and for the citizens. After all we started reading the voice because they put things on paper no one else would. Things we wanted to know about. How sad now that in the shadow of this award so many things go unquestioned and unanswered. It is my profound hope that this award serves not only as a trophy, but a spark, that rekindles the flame that was so recently the unstoppable force that was Sharon Burton. Having the people in charge of things angry spiteful, and weary is the true sign of a free press. When they start posting articles for you or pointing you in the direction they want you to go, this is the sign of resignation to the footnotes of local history. Rise up, regardless of cost or threats. Make us proud, be the person who not only deserves this award, but many future ones.
