IBJ won seven national journalism awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference June 25 in Providence, R.I.

Judges from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism evaluated 487 entries from 45 publications, including newspapers in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. All told, 108 gold, silver or bronze awards were handed out.

IBJ brought home gold in two categories, including best investigative reporting for Cory Schouten’s April 2010 special report on former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi’s intervention in a major drug case against the client of one of his business partners.

Citing the “impressive combination of documents and on-the-record human sources,” judges called the story “a classic piece of investigative reporting that uncovers a clear conflict of interests by the prosecuting attorney.”

Managing Editor Greg Andrews also won top honors for his weekly “Behind the News” column. “This is a well-written, fact-driven column, based on strong reporting,” the judges said.

IBJ’s other prizes:

• Silver. Best industry-specific e-newsletter for reporter J.K. Wall’s Health Care & Reform Weekly e-mail.

• Bronze. Best website for IBJ.com.

• Bronze. Best multimedia story/editorial feature for Multimedia Producer Mason King’s videos that ran with a February 2010 profile of Scotty’s Brewhouse owner Scott Wise.

• Bronze. Best use of photography, illustrations for a collection of entries submitted by the IBJ art department under the guidance of Creative Director Deborah Strzeszkowski.

• Bronze. Best front page for designer/illustrator David Vrabel and former Creative Director Jo Hohlbein. They were honored for an April 2010 design that included an illustration of Biglari Holdings CEO Sardar Biglari and his business idol, Warren Buffett.

Los Angeles-based AABP is a national organization representing 64 independent magazine and newspaper members in the United States, Canada and Australia.

IBJ also won a national prize in April at the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ conference in Dallas. King’s biweekly “Inside Dish” video features on the business of running restaurants earned a “Best in Business” award.•

  1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

  2. Shouldn't this be a museum

  3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

  4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

  5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
