Stones again Patch together major awards in San Diego Press Club

My wife beat me again. As she did last year, when Chris won three first-place awards for her photos in the San Diego Press Club journalism contest, she again kicked my butt Tuesday night. She won two first-place plaques to my one. I got a second and a third as well — as I report on one of the Patch hyperlocal news sites I oversee in San Diego County. Chris won four awards this year, just like last year, in a club called the third-biggest in the country. Do they drug-test photographers?

Chris and I are on the right, showing off first-place plaques among Patch colleagues Tuesday night at the San Diego Press Club awards dinner.

    Drug testing? How about dress code testing? Can’t believe I’m seeing jeans in this shot. :)

    The gentleman in the ballcap is Eric Yates, my successor as editor of La Mesa-Mount Helix Patch. He won two first-place awards.
