Times Takes Seven Top Dateline Awards, Five Others; Coverage of September 11 Garners recognition.(NATION)

Reporters and photographers for The Times took first-place honors in the daily newspaper categories for spot and general news, sports, photojournalism, features, investigative reporting and columns, and received honorable mentions for financial, sports and general news coverage, and its photojournalism and features.

The Times' metropolitan, business and national reporters' coverage of September 11 won first place for spot news.

Other first-place awards went to reporters for articles about Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, the District's red-light cameras, Ritalin and youth, the District's towing practices and care of the elderly. …
