Alan Gibson - funniest weekly man in Georgia


    Progress columnist Alan Gibson received first place in the Ga. Press Association’s 2013 humorous column category for the division that includes the largest weekly newspapers.

    Gibson, a Bent Tree resident, has penned his Essential Bad Attitude column for the Progress since April 17, 2008. He has never missed a week since that time. His column can be found on page 3A.
    The judges wrote the following concerning the weekly column: “No long scene setters or trips down memory lane or digressive conversations with a friend for Alan Gibson, just straight-to-the-point, get-on-with-it funny.”
    Awards were presented during the annual Ga. Press Convention last week. The Progress also saw three of the news staff win photography awards. Laiken Owens took home a 2nd place photography award, while Damon Howell and Dan Pool both won 3rd place in different photography categories.
