Hats Off! to Margaret A. Harrell, who was once again a Special Guest/VIP for the ninth annual Gonzofest, honoring Hunter S. Thompson, in Louisville, Kentucky, for events at the Frazier and Speed museums and the Free Public Library (July 18 - 20). She was on the panel "Journalism from Nixon to Trump," along with Ryland Barton, Capitol Bureau Chief for Kentucky Public Radio, moderated by Tim Denevi (author of Freak Kingdom). Other participants included William McKeen (author of Outlaw Journalist), Juan Thompson (author of Stories I Tell Myself), and more. Eight-hundred people attended "After Hours at the Speed," and other programs pulled large numbers of attendees as well.

 

Hats Off! to Tom Wood whose two articles, "Scooter invasion" and "Podcast vs police," were part of The Nashville Ledger's winning entry for Public Service promoting the welfare of the community, earning the paper the Meeman Award, presented by the Edward J Meeman Foundation at the University of Tennessee. The Ledger also won for Best Business Coverage ("Morgan builds an empire"). Tom also received a second- and a fourth-place award. Most recently, Tom wrote about the past, present, and future of space exploration to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
