LOCAL PULITZER PRIZE WINNERS
Good daily journalism is still all alive and well in Minnesota. The Star Tribune in Minneapolis has won two Pulitzers. One is for local reporting. Three reporters won for a story on the alarming rise of deaths in homes where child care was being performed. The other award is for editorial cartooning. This makes four for the Star-Trib. The Pulitzer is the highest honor achievable in journalism, awarded annually by Columbia University in honor of the great publisher, Joseph Pulitzer.
