Local Talent

Congrats to Cornelia Grumman, editorial page writer for the Chicago Tribune, who just won a national award from the Casey Journalism Center for her editorial series, "Juvenile Injustice."

According to the citation:  "In a society where newspapers (and the people who write and edit them) are supposedly becoming more irrelevant, this series shows why there is still no substitute for enterprising reporting and pointed, well-written journalism. These powerfully argued editorials pierced the reality of  inexcusable conditions inside the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center."
