Association honors coverage of hate

A Highlands Current article published in May about a former Garrison resident who runs a white supremacist website was named the best investigative report of the year among smaller publications by LION Publishers, a national organization of local independent online news sources. The honor was presented Oct. 25.

The annual competition, the first conducted by LION, included awards in 15 categories. The report, The Extremist Next Door, written by Managing Editor Chip Rowe, was one of four finalists in the category.
