Polk Winner

Posted By on Tue, Feb 20, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Ray Ring, a former reporter for the Arizona Daily Star, is among the winners of the latest crop of George Polk awards. Ring, the "Northern Rockies Editor" for High Country News, won the political reporting award for a story on a campaign to destroy land-use planning through "takings" ballot initiatives. High Country News is a bi-weekly magazine that reports on the West's natural resources, public lands, and changing communities. The George Polk awards, among America's most coveted journalism honors, memorialize CBS correspondent George W. Polk, who was killed covering the civil war in Greece in 1948. Ring is also the author of a trio of noir-ish novels, Arizona Kiss, Telluride Smile, and Peregrine Dream, which can be found on the shelves of the local library or used bookstore.
