Congratulations to The Vail Trail’s Colorado Press Association award winners:Caramie SchnellBest Feature Story Third PlaceTom BoydBest Sports Story First PlaceAwards are only one way to gauge a newspaper’s quality and performance, but they are certainly a welcome one. The little ol’ Vail Trail did fairly well at the recent Colorado Press Association awards, bringing in two awards.It’s also notable, we think, that the Trail won its awards during a year of great turmoil and transition. The Knox family sold the paper to Colorado Mountain News Media, a Reno-based division of Swift Newspapers, in February of 2004. With a new editor and a nearly all-new staff, the Trail was essentially a start-up newspaper in 2004.In 2005, we feel we’re hitting our stride. With growing readership and advertising support, we know we’ll continue to improve, and we hope to have an even better showing at the CPA awards next year.Congratulations are also in order for the other papers of this valley, the Vail Daily and the Eagle Valley Enterprise, which also took home several awards.– The Vail Trail staff
