The Light’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editor won another accolade last month, a lifetime achievement award from the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors. The Eugene Cervi Award, named for the late editor of the Rocky Mountain Journal in Denver, was presented to Dave Mitchell at the annual conference in Durango, Colorado, “not for a single brave accomplishment, however deserving, but for a career of outstanding public service through community journalism and for adhering to the highest standards of the craft with the deep reverence for the English language.”
