  2. Congrats to all receiving awards tonight at #SEJ2013, including our own Brian Bienkowski for his coverage on “Environmental Health in the Great Lakes Region," winner of an Outstanding Beat Reporting Award.
  3. Here's an update for you from SEJ's wizard conference director, Jay Letto, on the status of #SEJ2013 Thursday tours in the field: "SEJ is not planning to cancel any of the Thursday conference tours based on the federal government shutdown. Organizers have been wonderfully creative in making adjustments. New speakers have been recruited, new sites secured, and we're sure the day will be well filled with the kind of information and adventure you are counting on. Thanks for bearing with us today as we've worked through implications of the federal government shutdown. The feds may be missing, but the issues will not be missed." Ahh, the resilience of passionate environmental journalists...Enjoy the conference!
  4. As our conference leadership respond to the disruptions caused by the government shutdown, it is worth noting that the essence of SEJ's Annual Conferences is always journalists mentoring journalists. Prepare for the usual extraordinary immersion in #environment and #journalism topics and rich networking of #SEJ2013. Starts tomorrow. Safe travels.
