El Dorado, Arkansas -- Oct. 23, 2006 -- The El Dorado News-Times press crew placed second in 25,000 and under circulation category of the recent Southern Newspaper Publishers Association Print Quality Contest.

News-Times General Manager Nat Lea said the award is a reflection of the newspaper's continued investment in the quality of the newspaper.

"We are proud of this award, especially in light of the number of entries in our circulation category and the diverse geographic location of the competitors," Lea said. "The press crew works hard to ensure print quality each day and I am proud of them." First place in the contest went to the Columbia Daily Tribune in Columbia, Mo., and third to the Marysville Appeal-Democrat in Marysville, Calif. The News-Times tied the Southeast Missourian in Cape Girardeau, Mo., for second.

Judges evaluated 20 entries in laydown, color ink laydown, color registration, halftone quality, page alignment and appearance.

Pressroom Manager Mike Jones oversaw a number of improvements this year to the Goss urbanite press, which is close to 40 years old.
