The memo to staff from Associate Editor Leo Wolinsky:

Good news from the world of food. Our Food section has won an Association of Food Journalists prize for Best Newspaper Food Section (Circulation 300,001 and over). Russ Parsons won for Best Newspaper Food Feature (Circulation 323,001 and over). His winning entry was his terrific story about the squid fishery, “Lights, Nets, Action.” 

The prizes, whether first, second or third place, will be awarded in Houston in November.
