OFF THE WALL NEWS WINS THE KARMA NEWS REPORTING AWARD

KEEPING IT LOW KEY, OFF THE WALL NEWS'S SENIOR EDITOR AND LEAD REPORTER ACCEPTED THE WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND KARMA AWARD SATURDAY NIGHT IN FRONT OF A ROOMFUL OF HIS PEERS.....

BRIDGEPORT, MN.

Dave Taylor
In this "gotta be number one" world, Senior Editor and reporter Dave Taylor was always content to stay in the background and let the others reap the rewards and claim the prizes when in it came to gathering and reporting the news.  Saturday Taylor was pushed to the forefront and became the news, as he and his crack team of reporters were this year's recipients of  the What Goes Around, Comes Around Karma award.
"It's all about Karma." Taylor said softly as he held up the WGACAK award ribbon. "If you do good at something, it will come back to you. My team and I would rather not be the news, but thanks."

He was awarded the ribbon for many of the past stories now filed away the OFF THE WALL NEWS ARCHIVES.  One of his favorites was breaking the story of the legalization of strip poker clubs in Bridgeport. "We told the naked truth." he stated.  Other great reporting occurred when he and Pope Frances paled around during the Pope's visit to the U.S. and together attended an AC/DC concert.  Topping it off of course, was his travels with then Presidential candidate Donald Trump in Iowa last summer, where Taylor and Trump toured in Trump's helicopter.

"It's been fun, but we're just scratching the surface," Taylor said at the close of the ceremony. "This ribbon will be stapled to our wall at the OFF THE WALL NEWS office so everyone in our organization can stare at it from time to time and see that hard work pays off."
With that he left quietly out a back door.  There was more news to uncover.
