It is an honor and privilege to deliver The Press newspapers to you each week in both a printed and digital format. The stories are about the people, families, businesses and organizations that shape East County.
Our staff of award-winning reporters and photographers recently took home top honors from the National Newspaper Association and are sterling examples of the quality of journalism displayed at The Press. Tony Kukulich won first place for his photograph of a pair of bald eagles here in Brentwood. He also won gold for his story and accompanying photographs of a homeless encampment in Antioch. Staff writer Aly Brown won an award for her Humann’s Beans story at Adams Middle School highlighting the camaraderie of a group of special education students who deliver coffee to campus teachers as part of their life skills program.
Other stories that The Press has brought to you this year via our professional journalists include:
• Intensive, one-of-a-kind coverage of the critical WaterFix project and its potential effects on East County residents and the Delta.
• Breaking-news stories that captured the immediate happenings in East County and alerted residents to the important traffic alerts and news as it happened.
• Extensive coverage of local stories including the record-setting win of the Liberty High School football team’s capture of the state title.
