ADE outdoors reporter wins Associated Press award

SARANAC LAKE – Enterprise Outdoors and Sports Writer Mike Lynch took third place in the depth reporting category in the 2012-13 New York Associated Press Association writing contest.

Lynch was honored for his article, “DEC’s Gag Order,” which detailed the problems outdoor writers around the state have had with the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s restrictive press policy under Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The AP will give out its awards on Oct. 2 at a banquet in Syracuse.
