Bringing Home the Green 

Flyer wins two Green Eyeshade awards.

The Memphis Flyer is the winner of two 2005 Green Eyeshade Awards.

Flyer staff writer Chris Herrington received a first-place award in the Criticism category for a series of film reviews, including A History of Violence and Million Dollar Baby.

Senior editor John Branston received a third-place award in the Investigative division for his four-part series on the bizarre trial of medical examiner O.C. Smith.

Conducted by the Society of Professional Journalists, the Green Eyeshade Awards -- the name derived from the visors once worn by newspaper editors -- have honored the best in professional journalism in 11 Southeastern states for 56 years. This year, more than 450 entries were submitted.

The first-place winners in each major division -- print daily, print weekly and monthly, television, and radio -- are currently being judged to determine the Green Eyeshade "Best of Show" awards, which will be announced in May.

A complete list of winners is available on the SPJ Web site, http://www.spj.org/awards_ges.asp.
