Times-Union Wins 13 Sunshine Awards; the Honors Cover a Range of Journalism across the Newsroom

The Florida Times-Union newsroom staff took home more than a dozen awards Saturday in the Sunshine State awards.

The contest, sponsored by the South Florida Society of Professional Journalists, honored Times-Union staff members with 13 awards. They went to every part of the newsroom, including reporting, design and photography.

"These awards recognize the terrific journalism by a broad range of Times-Union journalists," Times-Union Editor Frank Denton said. "We plan and focus our work on the needs of our readers, but we appreciate this recognition from our peers."

First-place awards went to staff writer Matt Galnor for his profile of developer Cameron Kuhn and to Denise M. Reagan for her graphic design work.

Staff writer Bridget Murphy won two awards for her story "Swinging for Redemption," the compelling tale of Rusty Tillman's slide from Major League Baseball hero to homelessness and life in a tent in the bug-infested woods.

Columnist Mark Woods took home two awards, one for his story about Milton Oshay Johnson, a star Baker County High School football player who was paralyzed by a pre-season tackle gone terribly wrong. A second award was for his column, which appears Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

A story on the Jacksonville Port Authority investigation took home second prize in the government and political reporting category.
