Williston Pioneer editor Carolyn Ten Broeck won two awards in the Florida Press Association's Better Newspaper Contest.
Ten Broeck earned a first place finish for Best Headline with "The mechanic had hot pink nails" and took second place in General News Story for "Thanksgiving behind bars", the story of the Patas monkey that ran amok in Williston.
Judges wrote about the first place finish: "Very creative and engaging-it almost has a noir sound to it. Not only is it clever, it captures the essence of the story. Well done!"
