This will be a rewarding summer

April 26, 2015

 Take your readers on a road trip inside your newspaper this summer and you could share in $4,000 in newspaper incentives for publishing the Newspaper In Education series Missouri Road Trip 2015: Every Hero Has a Story.

This new 11-part series, created in partnership with the Missouri Division of Tourism, will introduce Missourians who made significant accomplishments in their lifetimes and the places they once called home. Families that read the series will have the opportunity to win prizes.

For the first time, Missouri Press Foundation will award $4,000 in incentives to Missouri newspapers for participating in the project. Every Missouri newspaper member of the Missouri Press Association that publishes the complete series in print will be entered into a drawing to win: one $1,000 award, two $500 awards, four $250 awards and 10 $100 awards.

There are baseball heroes -- and then there are legends

December 18, 2014

Dizzy Dean stands among the legendary players who have left their mark on America's game. History remembers Dizzy not only for his prowess on the pitcher's mound, but also for his character off of it.

Your newspaper can share the story of Dizzy and the rest of "The Gashouse Gang" -- the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals baseball team -- in a new serialized story from Missouri Press Foundation and author Carolyn Mueller.

"The Gashouse Gang" is this year's Reading Across Missouri project, an endeavor to have young readers across the state inside their community newspapers reading and learning in 2015. This is the 10th year for the project.

The story is available now to Missouri newspapers to begin publishing in January. To access the package, which includes the Rules for Publication, promotional ad, teacher guide and 12 chapter features, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: readmo15.

Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson: Internet Vulnerabilities Remain, via Public Notice Resource Center newsletter Government officials have known about the vulnerabilities the internet faces since at least 1998, when seven young hackers – bearing names like Space Rogue, Weld Pond and Brian Oblivion – testified before the United States Senate that “any of the seven individuals seated before you” could take the internet down with 30 minutes of well-choreographed keystrokes. Fred Thompson, the Tennessee Republican who chaired the Senate panel in 1998 and left Congress in 2003, said in a recent interview that internet security is the kind of problem the government has trouble fixing. “Number one, it’s very difficult, and number two, there’s no immediate political payoff for anyone,” he said. The vulnerability of technology users at the highest levels of government is a stark reminder of the value of publishing printed versions of public notices in newspapers. The newspaper and press association websites which host public notices may also be vulnerable to being taken offline, so the online postings are best used as an adjunct to the printed notice, because printed notices remain independent, archivable,accessible and verifiable.
