The Express won two awards in the annual Association of Alternative Newsmedia contest, the results of which were announced last weekend. Contributor (and former music editor) Rachel Swan won a first-place award in the arts feature category for her cover story, “The Shrinking Stage,” which detailed how Bay Area theater companies were forced to book one-person shows to save money during the recesssion. And co-editor Kathleen Richards won a third-place award in the long-form news category for her cover story, “How Much Garbage Does It Take to Treat a Patient?” Her report shed light on the fact that the medical industry has been slow to recycle.
