“These pages reflect a newspaper firmly rooted in the local soil,” wrote the judges of Enterprise opinion pages entered in the annual New York Press Association contest. “The lead editorial is always a nice piece of writing, and on the many, many pages that follow, community members weigh in with lively election debates, folksy columns, claims and counterclaims, many which carry editorial notes and responses from the other side of the fence. Other editorial sections are more carefully pruned, but here the pages are an organic thicket that serves the community well.”
