Foundation honors 40 for excellence in newsletter journalism. (Editing).

For the second year in a row, American Health Consultants won the most awards, five, in the Newsletter & Electronic Publishers Foundation's annual journalism competition.

Also for the second year in a row, UCG came in right behind AHC with four winning entries. UCG has the most winners in the competition's 23-year history, with an even 70 now. UCG is also the only newsletter company to have won an award every year.

While a number of the winning articles and series of articles significantly affected government and corporate policies, at least one news-breaking story did just that--beat the mass media to the punch.

Inside the Pentagon's "U.S.

Air Force Flies Combat Patrols Over Dozens of American Cities" was the first news piece anywhere to report that the American military had taken on this first-ever domestic mission to use its F-16 and F-15 fighters to patrol Washington, New York, and more than 30 other cities.

Another interesting entry--the second-place winner in the Best Investigative Reporting category--was "Will Navy's New Sonar System Drown Out the Songs of Whales?" published in Environment Hawai'i.

The story was written to focus on mounting public concerns over two federal projects involving the transmission of sound waves the deep ocean. Both projects were suspected of interfering with the ability of some whales and dolphins to communicate, and even to have injured or killed particularly sensitive marine animals.
