Golden Pen Award Winner


The Spokesman-Review is pleased to announce that Lydia Newell of Spokane has won the monthly Golden Pen Award.

Newell’s Feb. 16 letter commented on the commercial break interruptions during the symphony portion of the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The Golden Pen Award expresses the newspaper’s appreciation for letter writers who demonstrate exceptional eloquence and clarity in their contributions to our Roundtable page.

The monthly winners, as well as the weekly nominees for this award, are chosen by Opinion page staff members. The monthly winners receive a 10-karat-gold Cross pen.

We congratulate Newell and thank all of the readers who care enough to debate public issues on this page.
