ST. PAUL – State Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, received the Good Neighbor Award presented by the Minnesota Public Television Association President Patty Mester.

“I am honored to receive this award, and I want to thank Minnesota Public Television for being part of my neighborhood," Ruud said in a news release. "Minnesota Public Television is a large part of what makes our state amazing. Every night MPR gives us the opportunity to hear the local news and a chance to learn about what's happening in our communities. The projects created by public television allow Minnesotans the opportunity to learn about new and unique topics that touch hearts and minds.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
