The Victorian Village's scrappy weekly, the Ferndale Enterprise, was informed last week that it nabbed two awards for best editorial writing in the National Newspaper Association's annual Better Newspaper Contest.

The 135-year-old paper is more or less a one-woman-show these days, with Caroline Titus (wife of Ferndale Mayor Stuart Titus) acting as publisher, editor, reporter, page designer -- even occasional distributor. (See the Journal's February profile of the Tituses and the paper here.)

The NNA honored the Enterprise for a pair of editorials penned by Caroline Titus -- a first place (among non-dailies with circulation less than 3,000) for her May 17, 2012 critique of the Humboldt County Fair Board and a third place for her Dec. 20, 2012 piece about the widespread bullying and intimidation of a high school student. You can read both editorials over at the Enterprise.

Congrats to Titus and the paper.
