The AltWeekly Awards will be handed out at the Association of Alternative Newsmedia Convention in Detroit early next month, and one of our own is among those nominated. Since 1,108 entries were received from 90 member publications, it really is an honor to be nominated, like Renée Downing was for her column writing this year. Read the columns that attracted the attention of the judges, below:

East Bay Express: Cops Charging Overtime to Clubs; Marcie Hodge Loses, Again; and The Absent Police Chief by Robert Gammon
