  Last weekend I attended the Mid-Atlantic Community Papers Association (MACPA) Annual Conference. Not only did I have the opportunity to learn some new Photoshop and InDesign tricks from the Kevin Slimp, who actually developed the PDF and also worked with Adobe to develop InDesign – which is quickly becoming the industry standard for graphics and newspapers, but I also got to represent Webb Weekly as we won several awards.
  Congratulations to my hubby as we won several awards for our ads and to LeRoy Baer who won a first place award for original writing.
  However, what I am most proud of is that we won second place in General Excellence – Community Papers.
  We were up against over 50 newspapers from all over the Mid-Atlantic Region!
  I am so proud of everyone at Webb Weekly for achieving this honor.
