I remember stopping for directions to a golf course. "How do I get to Sea Palms?" I asked. The young man behind the counter of the convenience store responded with his own question, "From here?" I almost laughed out loud at the absurdity - and the profoundness - of his comment. Directions always start from where we are at the moment.
OCNA is proud to recognize the outstanding quality of work produced each week by our member newspapers and showcase it to readers and advertisers.
The first, second and third place winners were announced during the Better Newspaper Awards Gala on Friday, May 22 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.
