2010.10.20 John Geisler: Observer deserves award

Even though I live more than 100 miles from Morenci, I avidly read my hometown newspaper every week—from the first page to the last—and I believe the Michigan Press Association was absolutely “on target” in giving the Stateline Observer 13 awards for its columns, stories, photos and features—including “Newspaper of the Year” in its category. The Observer earned every one of them.

Congratulations to David Green and his staff for producing a quality product. In this era of declining newspaper production, it is gratifying to know that the “Green” family tradition of excellence is alive and well.
