It's not often we get a chance to mention encouraging news. Two folks with involvement in independent media have won some recent awards:
First, congratulations are due to CMA's own Scott Sanders for winning the 2011 Nelson Algren award. Nelson Algren, noted author and longtime Chicago bon vivant, has a namesake committee that will be throwing the annual Nelson Algren birthday party where they award the Nelson Algren award to Chicago activists and artists who have contributed to the Chicago progressive community.
Second, congratulations are also due to friend-of-CMA and longtime independent media contributor Kari Lydersen for winning the 2011 Studs Terkel Community Media Award, awarded annually by the Community Media Workshop.
Meanwhile, CMA gets confused sometimes with a different CMA that is involved in some kind of country music awards. No joke; you should see some of our emails. Talk about barking up the wrong tree...
