Letter: Ralph, Shell departure a loss to GC

Shell departure a loss to GC

Congratulations to the Sky-Hi for winning nine awards at this year’s Colorado Press Association convention. Amanda Fruehauf and Laci Thompson won awards for best news page design, and Barby Bridges for best small space ad. John Riddell was recognized in the best serious column writing category. Hank Shell scooped the pot – winning five awards in categories including best environmental story, best news story, best deadline news reporting (winning both first and second place), and best sustained coverage. This is an unprecedented achievement. I am sure Mr Shell has a glittering career ahead of him where ever he chooses to go, but his departure is a great loss to Grand County.
