Description THE BETTER NEWSPAPER CONTEST expected the new daily division of the contest will generate future interest and become part of the lengthy tradition. The Color Country Spectrum captured General Excellence honors in the 1994 contest. As might be expected, some papers have been more consistent winners than others. What is a bit unexpected is that a change of publishers didn't always end the "winning ways." A prime example is the Park Record, which has captured seven General Excellence plaques in three different circulation groups and under three different publishers. The Record shared a first place with the Nephi Times-News in 1977 when in Group I and co-published by Richard and Susan Buys. Two years later it captured Group II honors under the same publishers. After the restriction prohibiting one year's winner competing the following year was lifted, the Record was the top paper in Group III for an unprecedented three consecutive years in 1983-84-85 under publisher Jan Wilking. Subsequently, it has won Group III honors in 1987 and 1993 with Andy Bernhard the publisher. For numbers of General Excellence trophies in Group III, the News-Journal of Brigham City and the Murray Eagle share honors. Each has won eight. Following his father's retirement with four such awards, Charles C. (Tuff) Claybaugh became publisher and took top honors in four additional years. The Eagle's eight were all directed by husband-and-wife co-publishers J. M. (Jim) and Bette J. Cornwell, with his column, Here's a Point, winning the blue ribbon ten times. Close behind is the Richfield Reaper, with six first-places. In 19 of 21 contest years from 1958 through 1978, one or another of those three papers captured General Excellence. Since the rules then barred a winner defending the title, two of the three publications which consistently rated high in the judge's eyes were in the competition each year. Their successes were interrupted in 1964 by the short-lived Rocky Mountain Review and in 1967 by the Davis County Clipper. The Manti Messenger has been the top choice of the judges eight times in Group I with four different publishers. The first, in 1957, was R. LaVaun Cox. In 1968 and 1971, Larry Stahle 391
